This is one of Getafe’s biggest matches for a long time. They have had a fantastic season and are currently out of the Champions League qualification places on head to head record against Valencia. They are assured of a Europa League place but manager Pepe Bordalás would be a hero if he could get the club into Europe’s premier club competition. They’ve been in the top four for large parts of the campaign but a few poor patches of results through the season could cost them. They were beaten 3-2 by Barcelona last weekend which meant that Valencia leapt above them in the table, but there is still a chance of finishing fourth.
Villarreal have nothing left to play for after a distinctly average season for the Yellow Submarine. They’re down in 14th place but six points clear of the relegation zone. Manager Javier Calleja came in January and he hasn’t done much to steady the ship as yet. This is the first time in seven seasons that Villarreal won’t finish in the top six but they did pick up three points against Eibar last weekend.
This is a must win match for Getafe to have any chance of getting back into the top four, unfortunately for them, Valencia have a relatively easy match against Eibar, who are safe from relegation so will have nothing to play for. However, Getafe still have to go out and win this game. They are very good at home and have won eight of their last 11 matches, losing just once to Leganes. In their last four they’ve kept a clean sheet and that is the basis for the Getafe vs Villarreal prediction of under 2.5 goals. It has happened in four of Getafe’s last five home matches and also in five of Villarreal’s last seven on the road. In the head to head history, under 2.5 goals have been scored in six of the last eight meetings.
What are the odds for under 2.5 goals in Getafe vs Villarreal? Evens with Ladbrokes.
Jamie Mata is the Getafe top scorer this season, but he is closely followed by Jorge Molina in the goalscorer charts, and he’s going to be our selection for an anytime scorer tip this weekend. The Spanish striker has scored 14 goals in La Liga this season and he’s found the net in four in his last six matches. We’re betting on a home win here who have a 61% strike rate at home, and our scorer selection has scored three goals in his last two home matches.
What are the odds for Jorge Molina to score anytime vs Villarreal? 5/6 with Ladbrokes.
Villarreal are safe from relegation with nothing left to play for so they can be forgiven for not caring too much about this game. Gefate need to win and that’s exactly what we think they’ll do. Five home clean sheets in a row is a great record in this league and we’re expecting them to make it six here, to end their season on a high. A 2-0 win is the Getafe v Villarreal betting tip here and it should be a comfortable afternoon for the Getafe fans. Whether it’s good enough to get fourth spot or not remains to be seen.
What are the best odds for Getafe to beat Villarreal to win 2-0? 15/2 with Ladbrokes.
