Getafe and Almeria Play in Decisive Liga Adelante RoundPublished June 4, 2017 by Florin P
Former La Liga teams square off in a match of critical importance that can decide their division next (4:00 p.m UK Time).
Getafe try to return to the first division after a year spent in Liga Adelante and are well-positioned to promote. In order to claim their spot in La Liga, they will have to defeat another squad that used to play among the best Spanish teams. Almeria is struggling at the bottom of the standings and it is trying to consolidate its position and avoid relegation. Even though the two teams have different objectives for this year, both regard this match as of great importance.
The Most in-form Team in Liga Adelante
Getafe has emerged as the hottest team in the Spanish second division over the last couple of weeks. They managed to maintain their invincibility both at home and on the road, yet they are far better when playing in front of their fans. It’s very convenient that they get the chance to play the second to last match at home, since they are in dire need of all three points.
Finishing in the third-place is good enough to play in the playoffs, yet Getafe hopes for direct qualification. It’s not going to be easy to overtake Girona in the remaining rounds, but they are definitely going to try until the very last minute. Against Almeria, they have the chance of squaring off against the team that is also desperate for points, therefore willing to take more chances.
A Point could be enough for Almeria
Almeria needs to play its cards right but also requires to have luck on its side. That’s because, the team can stave off the specter of relegation even if they don’t win tonight. At the same time, they can’t settle for one point and simply hope for their counter candidate to fail miserably. It’s going to be a difficult match for them and even with the right strategy there is no guarantee to succeed.
Punters should take advantage of their predicament and back the home side to win this match at better than average odds offered by bet365 Sports. Getafe also have the advantage in the head to head matches, so everything points towards a clear home win.
