Spanish La Liga Odds: Getafe Faces-off EspanyolPublished February 20, 2015 by Amir G
Getafe meets Espanyol at home to try and widen the gap from the relegation zone (19:45 UK time).
Getafe's Coliseum Alfonso Perez is the venue for tonight's match between the home team and visitors Espanyol Barcelona (19:45 UK time). These two teams have already met this season at Barcelona, in a match that ended 2-0 in favor of the hosts.
Getafe's Relegation Zone Woes
Getafe's La Liga season hasn't been really impressive – the team is currently ranked 15 in the table with 23 points composed of 6 wins, 5 draws and 12 loses. Only this last month Getafe managed to win twice at home, against Celta de Vigo and Sevilla; they lost 1-0 against Valencia in their game on Sunday.
With 5 teams below, all struggling to get away from the relegation zone, Getafe is out to get every point it can get – something which will be rendered harder with injured players such as Baba Diawara, Vicente Guaita and Angel Lafita. Look for the team's top striker Alvaro Vazquez in goalscorer bets, who will try to keep Getafe's home winning momentum against Espanyol.
Espanyol is in a much safer position than their host, ranked eighth with 29 points (8w, 5d, 10l). The team has a notorious reputation for its performance away from home, but they will look to extend their momentum as well after beating Malaga 0-2.
Last Thursday, Espanyol also managed to squeeze out a 1-1 draw away from home against Athletic Bilbao in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-finals. The statistics work for Espanyol today, showing that despite their bad away performances, they did not lose in their five last games at Getafe.
