Elche vs Getafe Match Analysis and Prediction

Both Elche and Getafe will get one last shot to confirm their survival in the Spanish top flight this weekend at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero. Match day schedules for May 22, 2022 at 18:30 EAT.

With 32 points from 31 La Liga games, Elche sat in major danger of relegation, but they were able to put two crucial victories together back-to-back, firstly beating fellow strugglers Mallorca 3-0. While those results have seen Francisco’s men drop to 15th spot in La Liga, they do boast a three-point lead over the drop zone heading into the final day, meaning a point on Sunday or a failure from any of Granada, Mallorca or Cadiz to win would suffice to maintain Elche’s top-flight status for another term.

Los Franjiverdes get into this clash hoping for better results following 1-0 La Liga defeat to Celta Vigo in their previous encounter. In that game, Elche CF managed 51% possession and 10 shots with only one of them on target. Celta Vigo got 14 shots with five of them on target and a goal by Denis Suárez (9′).

On the other hand, after taking a point from a 1-1 draw away at Osasuna, Getafe faced Barcelona at home last time out, but they were able to keep the game goalless and add another crucial point to their tally against the odds. Their five-game unbeaten run has quickly seen the Azulones move clear of danger, and, needing a point at most to confirm their survival, they will look to end the campaign on a high with a positive result.

Getafe held each other to a goalless draw in the La Liga with Barcelona last time out. In that game, Getafe had 29% possession and nine shots with three of them on target. FC Barcelona got five shots with one of them on target.
