Team News: Getafe
Getafe manager José Bordalás will be grateful not to have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash owing to a completely injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: Valencia
Valencia boss Javi Gracia has to choose a team with limited availability. Mouctar Diakhaby (Muscle Injury), Denis Cheryshev (Muscle Injury) and Jasper Cillessen (Muscle Injury) miss out here.
We feel that Valencia may find it difficult to get anything against this Getafe side who we think will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We’re therefore seeing a 1-0 win for Getafe at the conclusion of the game.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
