Match Preview

A winless run of five La Liga (LL) home games (D2, L3) has Valladolid fighting for top-flight survival. However, their active seven-game unbeaten H2H streak at home against Getafe is admirable, and could help spark a revival (W4, D3 – in all competitions).
A failure to find the net in their last two games – after both teams scored in the four prior – will be a worry for the hosts, especially as they already have the dubious honour of being one of just two sides to have scored an average of less than one goal per home league fixture this term (0.80).
With four of Valladolid’s last five defeats coming by a two-goal margin or bigger, the home side will need to be more competitive as they come up against LL’s fourth best away side in Getafe (W4, D10, L2). Further encouragement for travelling fans will be that their team are unbeaten in the three league matches this season that they started as an away favourite (W1, D2).
Only Barcelona have lost fewer away games than Getafe this LL campaign, although the visitors’ ten away draws remains a league-high by some distance. Seven of those stalemates ended 1-1, and therefore it should come as no surprise that 68.75% of Getafe’s LL road trips this season have finished with both teams scoring.
Players to watchRubén Alcaraz is Valladolid’s joint-top LL scorer, but has three times as many yellow cards (nine) as goals (three).
Veteran Jorge Molina has ten LL goals for Getafe this season – the last five arrived after half-time.
Stat attack: There’s been an average of 5.6 yellow cards per game across Valladolid’s last five LL matches.
Nine of Getafe’s 16 top-flight away games have been goalless at half-time.
Five of the last seven competitive H2Hs held here featured under 1.5 goals.
