Match Preview and Predictions

  • Elche’s 1-0 loss in their last league outing continued their collapse and plunged them into the relegation zone. They’ve now recorded a ten-game winless La Liga (LL) run (D6, L4), in what is their longest such streak in a single top-flight season since 1988/89! Slow starts have been a major concern during that run, as seven of those ten winless LL matches saw Elche concede a first-half opener.
  • Aiming to end a run of five consecutive LL home matches without victory (D4, L1), the ‘Franjiverdes’ will have to improve offensively late on, as they have scored just one of their seven LL home goals after the hour mark. Subsequently, Elche have won just two of eight second halves played at home so far (2H: W2, D3, L3).
  • With only one win from their last 11 league matches (W1, D4, L6), whilst conceding first in all but two of those ten drawn/lost games, Getafe are in a similar predicament and sit just one point above the relegation zone. Although they’ve lost two straight LL games, they will take encouragement knowing that April 2016 was the last time they lost three consecutive LL matches.
  • In fact whilst Getafe have won just one of their last 13 LL road trips (D6, L6), they actually start as favourites here and could be happy about that considering they are yet to lose as an away favourite this LL season (W1, D3). Although away wins have been elusive, what has been common is low-scoring fixtures as Getafe’s LL road trips have averaged a league-low 1.86 match goals so far.
  • Players to watch: Fidel has been Elche’s first goalscorer with his last three home strikes. Conversely, Getafe’s top scorer Ángel has scored his team’s last goal in all five of his goalscoring competitive matches this campaign.
  • Hot stat: This fixture has seen a notable 40.91% of historical league H2Hs end 1-1.
