Real Valladolid is hosting Getafe at Jose Zorrilla in part of round 31 in Spanish LaLiga.
Valladolid is having trouble with consistency this season and they have been struggling with their game, especially in the attacking end where they scored only 25 goals. Their defense has been a lot better though, with only 35 conceded goals. Of their three matches since the restart, Valladolid has 1 won, 1 draw, and 1 loss. At least for now, Valladolid is in 15th place in the standings with 33 points, outside the relegation zone. In their most recent LaLiga match against Atletico Madrid on the road, Valladolid has had 39% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, and 76% of the correct passes. Valladolid was defending well, but they conceded a goal in 81st minute and lost this match 1-0. Sergi Guardiola has scored 6 goals, while Unal added 5 goals. Sandro Ramirez is the only injured player for Valladolid. Having a good defense is only good enough to stay outside the relegation zone, barely, but that was Valladolid’s goal for this season, but we will see if it’s going to be enough for them because there are better teams than Valladolid at the bottom of the table.
Getafe was having an outstanding season before the break, and they are still high up in the standings, in 5th place with 48 points, but since the restart, Getafe hasn’t won any of their last three games. During this stretch, Getafe has scored 2 goals, while conceding 3 goals. Getafe could still end up in one of the Champions League or the Europa League spots, but they could also lose everything if they don’t start playing better soccer. Overall, Getafe is actually having a really good season in the attacking end with 39 scored goals, while their defense is one of the best in LaLiga with only 28 conceded goals. Rodriguez is Getafe’s leading goal scorer with 10 goals, while Jaime Mata added 8 goals. Manojlovic and Cabaco are both injured. In their latest LaLiga game against Eibar, Getafe has had 54% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, and extremely low 53% of the correct passes. This was a really bad and unenjoyable game, and both sides were struggling massively, but we saw two goals, one on each side. This match ended in a 1-1 draw. Getafe has a good team, and a good coach, but not even them expected to have a season this good, the only question is if Getafe can get out of this slump and to stay this high in the standings.
Valladolid was dominant while playing against Getafe at home, and the last game Getafe won against Valladolid on the road was back in 2011. The trends are pretty evenly split in this matchup, but I think it’s time for Getafe to get a nice win on the road and to get out of this slump.
