Getafe vs Las Palmas – La Liga: In one of this Wednesday’s matches, in Spain
Counting towards the 17th round of La Liga, the local side Getafe and the visiting side Las Palmas face off in the city of Getafe, at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez stadium.
This will be the first match between the two teams this season, with the hosts coming into this match with 20 points and sitting in 10th place of the league table,
while the visitors are in last place of the competition, with only 11 points conquered.
The home team has been making a relatively interesting campaign so far, being exactly in the middle of the league table, closer to the European qualification zone than the relegation zone, having an 8-point advantage over that red zone,
and being able to increase that advantage with a win in this encounter. The team is coming off a less interesting streak of results, only getting 1 win on their last 5 matches.
As for the visiting side, coming from the Canarias, they are on an uncomfortable position of the league table, much to the legacy of Paco Averastan,
that “wrecked” a team that was making very interesting campaigns with Quique Sétien in charge and was playing positive and attacking football.
The team has already recovered a bit from that period, getting closer to leaving the relegation zone, thanks to the change of manager,
being able to get closer to their more direct rivals in that fight in case they are able to win in this match. The team also has 1 win but on their last 8 matches.
Getafe vs Las Palmas – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Getafe has been one of the more consistent teams playing at their own stadium, coming off 3 losses on their last 4 home matches, only having lost against the big clubs of Spanish football and Alavés, inclusively beating Villarreal 4-0 in September.
This way, and against a Las Palmas team that is still trying to recover from the damage that their previous manager has done, I expect a win for the hosts.
