Villarreal vs Getafe Prediction: La Liga | 27.02.2023

Villarreal return to league action on Monday evening, as they look to end a four-game losing run. Getafe will be the visitors this week, as they look to record a second straight victory in La Liga and move clear of the bottom three.


La Liga Preview 

Monday night action in La Liga takes us to Villarreal this weekend, as the hosts look to end a long winless run to edge back into the hunt for a European finish. The hosts have lost each of their previous four matches in the Spanish top-flight, and that now sees them sit three points off the top six places in the La Liga standings. 

Villarreal comes into this match in their worst form this season, with their fourth straight defeat having been inflicted by Mallorca last weekend. It always appeared to be a difficult task for Villarreal in that fixture, as they had Manu Trigueros sent off after just 21 minutes. However, defensive mistakes were apparent throughout that fixture, and that would have been a huge concern. 

Getafe comes into this fixture in better form than their hosts, as they picked up a fifth victory of the season in their previous fixture. That win means that they have now picked up five points from their previous three matches, and they have moved out of the bottom three places in the division on goal difference. 

It was a vital win for Getafe in their previous fixture, and it came against one of their direct rivals in the relegation battle, Valencia. They were made to be patient in that fixture, with Borja Moyoral’s winner finally being netted with just eight minutes of the 90 remaining. A second straight win this week would go a long way to securing their safety. 

Villarreal vs Getafe Head to Head 

Villarreal is unbeaten in their previous eight league matches against Getafe coming into this fixture. Over that period, they have recorded six wins, including a 1-0 win in this exact fixture last season. However, the previous match between the sides this term ended in a 0-0 draw in August.

Villarreal vs Getafe Prediction 

Getafe’s poor record in this fixture is a huge concern ahead of the Monday showdown between the sides. However, Villarreal’s recent form would offer them a glimmer of hope. But, we could see the most likely result being the draw.
