Getafe host lowly Villarreal on Saturday afternoon with an advertised start time of 3.15pm and there’s plenty for both teams to play for. Here are our top Getafe v Villarreal betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
Getafe start fifth in the table and have been aiming for a top-four finish all season, fans dreaming of Champions League qualification. The locals have been seen stuttering in the closing weeks of the campaign, however, managing just one win in their last four, that run made up of two defeats and a draw. It would be a shame if they were to miss out due to a poor finish after punching above their weight all season.
The hosts started the month with a convincing 2-0 win over Girona but followed that with a 2-0 defeat at the Camp Nou last time out. A result that was to be expected, Barca appeared in a fair share of accumulators and had little trouble living up to expectations. Vidal scored the opening goal on 39 minutes and that was added to by an own goal from Arambarri with 89 minutes on the clock. Getafe must respond with a win when the pressure is on, but bookmakers have them picked and you’ll get 4/6 at Unibet. That looks worth a spot in multiples.
Visitors Have Pulled Clear
Villarreal spent the vast majority of the season with the threat of relegation hanging over them, but a late surge appears to have saved their skin for another campaign and they will be involved in the La Liga fixture list next term. Three wins and a draw has lifted the away side to 14th in the pile, six points better than the bottom three with two games remaining. They are not over the line just yet but for them to go down they will need to lose their next two and have Girona win their next couple of a good margin.
The visitors set-up on the back of a mixed bag of results with their last three reading draw, lose win. They battled to an important three points last time out when beating Eibar 1-0 at home, a result many valued as the win that saw them across the line. Ekambi scored the only goal of the game on the hour mark and that was enough to settle what has been a nervy contest. Despite that confidence boost, bookmakers are dead against the away win and offer Villarreal at 19/5 with Ladbrokes, making them outsiders of three in the match betting. A nice quote but not one that catches our eye.
