Getafe vs Eibar Match Betting Preview

Getafe will be out to confirm their La Liga status for another season when they take on 2nd bottom Eibar at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez on Sunday.

Getafe Betting News

The club have edged closer to the relegation zone in recent weeks on the back of a five game winless run that has seen five straight defeats, 14 goals conceded and just one goal scored. Heavy defeats to Bilbao and Barcelona appear to have knocked the confidence out of the club as they have since lost to Granada and Rayo Vallecano, clubs they would have at least expected to share the spoils with. The absence of a number of key men has hampered the club in recent weeks and this weekend will be no different with Roberto Lago, Alvaro Vasquez, Karim Yoda, Juan Valera, Lafita and Pablo Sarabia all missing through a mix of injury and suspension.

Eibar Betting News

If Getafe are feeling the pressure heading into the weekend they will take solace from the recent form of Eibar. The club have lost seven of their last 8 games and are looking to avoid a 7th successive defeat on Sunday. Last time out they went down 2-0 at home to Espanyol meaning they have managed just 2 goals and conceded 14 in 6 games. Ill-discipline and injury are also affecting the club and this weekend they will be without Patxi Ferreira, Gazika Garitano, Dani Garcia, Jaime and Raul Navas. The club last win, a 1-0 success over Malaga at the start of April, remains their only win since the 10th of January and just their third of 2015.

Getafe vs Eibar Match Prediction

Eibar won 2-1 when they met earlier in the season with Manu del Moral and Ander Capa scoring inside the first 55 minutes to seal the win. The win was their first over Getafe since 2004 and ended a run of three successive defeats.  When they met in the Copa del Rey last season Getafe won 2-1 away and 3-0 at home, the last time they played each other at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.
