Matches involving Getafe have proved to be exciting encounters recently with high scoring the rule rather than the exception. Over their past half dozen clashes alone, a grand total of 21 goals have flown in for both teams combined (at an average of 3.5 goals per game) with 17 of them being chalked up by Getafe.
Their prior results show that Getafe:
- are winless against UD Almería in their last 2 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their previous 9 home league matches. Visiting teams have certainly not had an easy time of it here.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Real Sociedad in La Liga competition, UD Almería and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, UD Almería managed 47% possession and 7 attempts at goal with 2 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for UD Almería was Sergio Arribas (76'). Real Sociedad got 18 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. Mikel Oyarzabal (62'), Carlos Fernández (91') and Zubimendi (95') scored for Real Sociedad.
Looking at their form, and UD Almería have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 14 goals overall. Defensively, UD Almería just haven’t been too solid at all. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily follow through into this next game, however.
Going into this contest, UD Almería are without an away win for the past 10 league matches. Their travelling support will be needed here, for sure.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head duels dating back to 14/01/2015, it’s been all-even between these two clubs with Getafe winning 3 of those games, UD Almería 3 and 0 being drawn in normal time.

Team News: Getafe
Looking at personnel, there is just the lone fitness concern for the Getafe gaffer José Bordalás to be concerned with due to a largely intact squad. Mauro Arambarri (Cruciate ligament surgery) is out of contention.
Team News: UD Almería
Thanks to a largely healthy group, there is just a single fitness issue for the UD Almería boss Gaizka Garitano to contend with. Luis Suárez (Broken fibula) won’t be in action.
In our opinion, UD Almería should get enough chances to get a goal against this Getafe side, however that probably won’t quite be enough to avoid defeat.
We reckon that it will be both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for Getafe when the full-time whistle blows. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
