Getafe 9/5 to beat Girona in Friday’s La Liga matchup
Competition: La Liga
Market: Getafe win
Odds: 9/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to take the opportunity to briefly jump into the European positions, Getafe will travel to the Estadi Municipal de Montilivi to face off against Girona on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, after seeing their eight-match unbeaten run come to an end earlier in the month, Girona appear to have hit a rough patch of form. In their opening 16 La Liga matches this season, they have won five, drawn six and lost five, scoring 17 and conceding 19 in return. No team in the top half of the table holds a worse defensive record than the hosts. As for their recent form, Girona have now lost their last two league matches on the bounce and more worrying, they failed to register a single goal in either of those defeats against Sevilla and Athletic Bilbao.
As for the visitors, after securing a top half finish in La Liga last season, it appears that Getafe have their sights set on going one step further this time around. In their opening 16 games this season, they have won six, drawn six and lost just four times, scoring 17 and conceding 12 in return. Remarkably, no team in La Liga holds a better defensive record than Getafe. With a points tally of 24, another win would see the visitors climb as high as fifth. As for their recent run of form, the Blues are now unbeaten in their last five matches across all competitions.
