The second half of the 2022-23 season could be the biggest six months in the history of Sevilla. They come into this fixture on Sunday sitting in the bottom three of the standings, as they have won just twice this term. Meanwhile, Getafe could move clear of the bottom three with a second straight win.
La Liga Preview
One of the biggest surprises in La Liga this term has been the struggles that Sevilla has endured. The Spanish giants have been key players in Europe for much of their recent history, but they appear to be in a difficult fight to ensure their La Liga status this term. They come into this second fixture after the World Cup break in the bottom three in the standings. Sevilla has won just twice all season, and has scored the third-lowest number of goals in the Spanish top-flight.
Their recent form would also be a massive concern, as they have gone five without a victory in La Liga. They were at least able to stop the rot on their return to domestic action last week, as they played out a 1-1 draw away from home against Celta Vigo.
Getafe may not be out of the woods just yet when it comes to the relegation battle, as they are just five points clear of the drop zone. However, unlike Sevilla, wins have been more common over their previous five games, as Getafe has picked up two wins from their previous four. They have also been more difficult to beat over that period, as they have lost just once in five.
The Spanish side made a pleasing return to domestic action last week, as they recorded a comfortable 2-0 home win against Mallorca. Both goals in that victory were scored in the second half by Borja Mayoral.
Sevilla vs Getafe Head to Head
Sevilla’s record in this fixture over recent seasons is a very strong one. They have won each of their previous six against Getafe, and have kept clean sheets in all wins that they have recorded. Getafe’s last win in this fixture was a 3-0 success in October 2019.
Sevilla vs Getafe Prediction
This is a huge match in the context of Sevilla’s season, and they can’t afford to lose. They have a positive record against Getafe in recent seasons, and we expect to see them get a huge three points that could transform their season.
