Match Preview

Getafe’s win rate of 57.14% as a favourite at home this season (W4, D3) provides a modest degree of confidence in a home win. Strong starts have helped them attain it as (with a loss to Barcelona excluded) Getafe have not conceded a first-half goal in five La Liga (LL) matches at home, helping them collect three clean sheets and four victories of two or more goals in that time.
It is a refreshing change from Getafe’s often-sluggish starts: they have claimed just two half-time leads at home this season, going on to enjoy four victories from the five occasions in which they opened the scoring at home. However, an inability to string together three consecutive wins (home or away) from two previous attempts this season is of some concern.
Further in their favour is Real Valladolid’s miserable history at Getafe. The visitors have won inside 90 minutes at Getafe only once (back in 2007/08), though they managed to cover the +1.5 goal handicap in five of six competitive visits to Getafe this decade (D2, L4).
Draws at top-half clubs, which both came after Valladolid conceded the opening goal, should be enough to keep Getafe on their toes. Indeed, with Valladolid’s last seven LL games seeing the half-time result ultimately validated come the final whistle, the half-time scoreline could be telling once again.
Players to watchJorge Molina (GET) and Sergi Guardiola (VLD) both traded equalisers in the last H2H meeting between these sides, with the former man recently snapping a run of seven calendar weeks without a LL goal.
Stat attack: Referee Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz is one of two regular LL referees yet to award a penalty after week 16.
Getafe have collected more yellow cards (3.25 per game) than any other LL club after 16 rounds.
Valladolid have won the ‘race to three corners’ in just two (22%) of their nine LL away matches.
