Elche’s relegation to the second tier has already been confirmed, but they will be chasing a second straight win this weekend. Meanwhile, the pressure will be on the hosts, who will need maximum points to move out of the bottom three places.
La Liga Preview
All the pressure this weekend will be on Getafe, as they chase a return to winning ways in their battle to avoid the drop. They come into this fixture sitting 18th in the standings, but a victory could move them up to 15th, depending on other results this weekend. Getafe will certainly be looking for a better performance than they have managed recently, as they have suffered four defeats in their previous five matches.
Over that period, they have scored just one win. However, they weren’t able to secure back-to-back victories in their previous match, as they registered a 16th defeat of the season. Getafe defended strongly throughout their most recent clash, but they were eventually beaten 1-0 by Real Madrid after Los Blancos broke the deadlock after 70 minutes.
Elche has already been condemned to relegation this term, as they have registered just four wins across the 34 matches this season. However, they have recorded half of those victories in their previous three matches. No side in the division has allowed more goals than Elche, while they have also scored the fewest.
However, Elche come into this clash after a season-best performance in their previous outing. They managed to spring a huge surprise in front of their own fans, as they recorded a 1-0 win against Atletico Madrid. The only goal was scored after 41 minutes by Fidel Chaves de la Torre.
Getafe vs Elche Head to Head
Elche has won two of their previous three matches against Getafe. However, the only exception to that rule came earlier in the campaign, as Getafe landed a 1-0 win on the road. But, that remains their only success in four previous clashes with their rivals this weekend.
Getafe vs Elche Prediction
All the pressure will be on the hosts this weekend. They will need to bounce back after a defeat in their previous game. Scoring goals has been an issue for both of these sides this season, which means that the preference is for under 2.5 goals.
