Few sides in La Liga would have been as happy with their first half of the season as Sevilla. The Spanish side are sitting second in the standings, eight clear of Real Betis, and have their sights firmly set on the leaders. Meanwhile, Getafe will be looking for another three points this weekend to move clear of the drop zone.
La Liga Preview
Sevilla look to be the closest challengers to Real Madrid this season for the La Liga title, as they sit five points off the top. They also have a game in hand over their rivals for the title, which could move them to within two. Champions League qualification would have been the goal at the start of the campaign, but they are looking extremely good value for that at present, as they sit ten points ahead of fifth placed Barcelona.
Sevilla are the form side in the La Liga over the last five games, as they have won four times and been held to a draw on one occasion. They managed to get the job done on their return to domestic action last weekend, as they picked up a 1-0 win on the road against Cadiz. It was a nervy game for the travelling side, but Lucas Ocampos eventually scored the winning goal in the second half.
It has been an incredible transformation from Getafe over the past couple of months. They looked to be cut adrift at the bottom of the standings just two months ago, but their form has massively picked up since then. They have picked up four wins from 19 games this season, with half of those victories coming in their last two outings.
Getafe are unbeaten in five, taking nine points from a possible 15, which has opened up a two-point gap between themselves and the bottom three. They returned to La Liga action last weekend with a victory against Real Madrid.
Sevilla vs Getafe Head to Head
Sevilla have been excellent in recent fixtures against Getafe, as they have picked up wins in each of the last five meetings. They won the game between the sides earlier in the season 1-0, while they won this fixture 3-0 last term.
Sevilla vs Getafe Prediction
Getafe’s win against Real Madrid last weekend was a huge indicator of how far they have come in the past two months. They will once again be defensively solid this weekend, but we expect the hosts to sneak a 1-0 victory.
