The pressure will be mounting on Getafe ahead of this fixture against Espanyol on Sunday. The visitors still find themselves in the bottom three places in the La Liga standings, while the hosts will also be looking for maximum points to remain within touching distance of safety.
La Liga Preview
Two of the bottom three in La Liga will clash this weekend. Espanyol will have the home advantage, as they bid to register a seventh victory of the campaign. Only Elche has won fewer games than the hosts in this fixture, while Espanyol has lost four of their previous five matches in the league. The most recent of those came on the road against Villarreal on Thursday, as they were beaten 4-2.
Espanyol’s home record would be a pressing concern at this stage of the season, as they haven’t managed to record a victory in each of their previous three at Cornella-El Prat. Over that period, they have recorded two defeats. This weekend, they could match their worst winless run at home in La Liga history, as they previously went four without a victory at the end of 2022.
Getafe is in a slightly better position than their rivals this weekend, as they sit just a point from safety. However, they will need to get back on track after suffering back-to-back losses. They have also lost three of their previous four, and are without a victory in their last five.
Their form over their previous five has been a massive drop off in their quality, as they had previously landed three victories in five before the start of this run. However, Catalan hasn’t been a happy hunting ground in recent seasons, as they are without a win in the region since September 2013.
Espanyol vs Getafe Head to Head
Espanyol has a fine recent record against Getafe, as they have picked up wins in each of the previous two. However, they haven’t recorded three wins on the bounce against their rivals since 2011. But, Getafe has failed to win in their previous six visits to Espanyol.
Espanyol vs Getafe Prediction
The pressure will be on both of these sides this weekend, and we find it challenging to see over 2.5 goals being scored. However, Espanyol’s excellent record against Getafe could be the best betting angle, and for that reason, we will be siding with the hosts.
