Getafe vs Elche Match Analysis & Prediction
20/05/2023 7:30 pm
Getafe will be looking to give their La Liga survival hopes a huge boost when they host already-relegated Elche at Cliseum Alfonso Perez on Saturday.
The hosts are currently 18th in the table, one point behind 17th-placed Real Valladolid, while Elche have already been relegated to the Segunda Division, with the club rock bottom of the division on 19 points.
There are just three points between Getafe in 18th and Valencia in 14th, while Celta Vigo are also not out of the equation in terms of relegation, and it is set to be a fascinating end to the season.
The Deep Blue Ones claimed a 1-0 victory over Celta Vigo in their last home game on May 3, but will enter this contest off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Real Madrid.
Jose Bordalas’ side found it difficult to show consistency at home this season, picking up just 23 points from their 17 league matches in front of their own fans, but they will be hosting an Elche side with the poorest away record in the division, claiming just six points from 17 matches.
Elche’s relegation from La Liga was confirmed following their 2-1 defeat at Almeria on May 2, but they will enter this game off the back of a surprising 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid.
There is no getting away from the fact that it has been a very poor campaign for Elche, and they will be playing Segunda Division football next season for the first time since 2019-20.
Sebastian Beccacece’s side claimed a 3-1 victory over Getafe in the corresponding match during the 2021-22 campaign, but the capital outfit recorded a 1-0 win in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
Getafe vs. Elche Head to head
In the 21 previous meetings between these two teams across all competitions, Getafe have claimed six victories while Elche have won five, and they have drawn in 10. Elche have scored 21 goals and conceded 26 in the process.
Getafe Team News
Getafe will be without the services of Jaime Mata through suspension, having picked up a milestone yellow card in the defeat to Real Madrid last time out.
The hosts will be boosted by the return of Damian Suarez from suspension, while Unal is also available after a ban and will start providing that he can shake off a slight muscular issue.
