It will start on Friday, January 12, for the nineteenth round of the 2017/2018 Spanish Championship, the last of the first round. From 18h (Brasília time) the ball will roll to Getafe and Malaga. The match will be held at the Alfonso Perez stadium in Getafe.
Getafe’s recent performance
Without great scares, Getafe is managing to achieve its goals for the season. With 23 points accumulated (six wins, five draws and seven losses), the club is in eleventh place in the standings.
Still hoping to fight for an even better condition. The difference for Villarreal, which closes the zone of classification for European tournaments occupying the sixth place, is five points. His advantage is even greater, of eight points, in comparison with the Alavés, eighteenth placed, that opens the region of the sticking.
This has given peace so that coach Pepe Bordalas can work. In the last five home games, for example, Getafe have won four and a draw. He is the seventh best member of LaLiga.
In front of Malaga, you have the opportunity to further improve this situation. However, you have to deal with two casualties. One is right. Defender Djene Dakonan (18 matches in the 2017/2018 Spanish League without a goal) received the fifth yellow card in Saturday’s 6 January defeat of Atletico against Atlético 2-0.
The other absence is likely. Midfielder Markel Bergara (15 games, four goals) is in the medical department. A knee injury took him out of the last three games. New tests will determine whether it can be used this Friday. The greatest chance. However, it is to follow out of action.
The current form of Malaga
The situation of Malaga is much worse. With only 11 points (three wins, two draws and 13 losses) in 54 played, the club is in the nineteenth (penultimate) position of LaLiga. It is in the relegation zone and it will not come out at the end of the last round of the first round regardless of its outcome and rivals. The difference for La Coruña, which is in seventeenth place, the first outside the region of the sticking, is five points.
The Malaga campaign away from their domains is also not able to fuel hopes in their fans. The club is worse visitor of the Spanish Championship. In nine matches, he won one and was beaten in the other eight.
On Monday, January 8, the club was responsible for closing the eighteenth round and failed even acting in his stadium. It took 1 to 0 of Espanyol and increased to three the series of defeats followed in the tournament.
Coach José Miguel Gonzales has three medical doubts for Friday’s showdown. They are in treatment of injury the defender Miguel Torres (a game in Spanish Championship 2017/2018, without goal); and socks Juan Carlos (ten games, no goal) and Diego Rolan (11 games, three goals).
History of the matches
The home factor was crucial in the last eight meetings involving Getafe and Malaga. There were four wins for each side. Whoever performed at his stadium got the better of him.
More tactically sound and working in their domains, Getafe is the best option for guessing in the game that opens the last round of the first round of the Spanish Championship. The price is 1.75 in Rivalo. Draw promotes return of 3.50. Successful visitor multiplies the investment by 5.00.
