Our Prediction:

Getafe will win

Getafe – Alaves Match Prediction | 25-08-2019 13:00

Alaves were perhaps seen as the team more likely to struggle to build on their impressive middle and end to last term but so far theyve done very well. They come into this one following three straight wins and they hammered Rayo Vallecano 5-1 away from home at the weekend to show they are a little more than a functional team that grinds out results at home.

Although Alaves performed reasonably well last weekend, the departure of Ibai Gomez to Athletic Bilbao, followed almost immediately by an injury to their other star winger Jony, will hurt them in the long run. Overall they do look the more likely victors. They dont have players of a comparable quality to bring in and without their two most creative players, its hard to see them creating many opportunities in this one.

Getafe vs Alaves PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 18/01/2019

As for Getafe, their extraordinary away form continued last weekend with a 2-1 win at Villarreal. The hosts did miss a penalty and rattle the woodwork four times in stoppage time alone so you could say that Jose Bordalas men rode their luck but they did score a couple of excellent goals too. They also secured Copa del Rey progress this week so its going to be a very busy month for the South Madrid side and it will test their squad.

Los Babazorros booked their place in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals on four occasions and they have yet to win the Primera Division trophy. Anyhow, that is still regarded as the clubs biggest success. Alaves made it to the UEFA CUP final in 2001, but they were beaten by Liverpool 5-4 in a thrilling football clash. The color of Alaves home kit is blue and white and the clubs local rivals are fellow Basque sides Real Sociedad, Athletic Club, Osasuna and Eibar.

With home advantage, Getafe should have the edge here. Theyve not really had to use it yet but a heavy summer of recruitment by their standards added some genuine depth to the squad which should come in handy during this busy month. We also expect Alaves to tail off slightly over the second half of the season with those wide areas far less threatening now following the events of the last fortnight. Of the two teams, Getafe have the greater squad depth which could be significant at a time when injuries and bans are starting to mount up.

Goal Timings

This Fridays clash in La Liga sees two sides meet who perhaps still dont get the credit they deserve. Halfway through the season, both Alaves and Getafe find themselves in the top six and within touching distance of the Champions League places. It would be truly extraordinary were either to make the top four come May but Alaves would jump all the way up to 3rd were they to win this.

More than 2.5 goals came in 3 of their previous games in front of the home fans and they have scored in all those matches as well. Jos Bordals, the manager of Getafe will be happy with his sides recent home form as they have won 4 of their last 5 matches here. The only match they lost was against the league leaders and reigning champions Barcelona.

Given he took over early last December, thats a fairly sustained run and theyve only been beaten 3 times in Vitoria under him. However its also very difficult to ignore Alaves outstanding 64% home win ratio under Abelardo in La Liga. That is largely due to Getafes excellent away form with 6 wins from their last 8 on the road in La Liga. In many respects this is a tough one to call and the bookies are struggling to decide upon a favourite.

Alaves still got a point in Catalonia without the duo but unquestionably their influence will be missed in the coming weeks with their back-up wingers not operating on quite the same level. They responded well to losing key wingers Ibai Gomez and Jony in the build-up to their last match at Girona. Alaves would shoot back up to 3rd place with victory. The former was sold to Athletic Bilbao while Jony has picked up an injury which will keep him out here.

Goalscorers

They picked up another decent result last weekend, drawing 1-1 at Girona but this will be a tougher game. An early exit from the Copa del Rey should offer them an advantage this month when many of the other teams in the top half will have an extra four games to manage. They are clear underdogs to do that despite heading into this match unbeaten in 4.

Theyve since secured Copa del Rey progress into the Quarter-Finals and this has the potential to be the most successful season in the South Madrid sides history. Getafe rode their luck at times last weekend to secure a 2-1 win at Villarreal. Theyve added a bit more firepower to solid defensive foundations this term and will fancy they can secure the points here.
