Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Athletic Club will be aiming to build on a 3-1 win over Real Valladolid when they take on Getafe in the La Liga round 27. The Lions are eager to represent Spain in European competitions next term, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at los Azulones. Both Inigo Lekue and Jon Morcillo are sidelined with injuries, but Ernesto Valverde can count on key players for Saturday’s clash. The good news for the hosts is that first-choice goalkeeper Unai Simon should recover in time to face Getafe.
Los Azulones, on the other hand, have been producing fine displays at home of late, but given their poor away record, we predict that the Basques are going to pick up all three points from the match. Both Duarte and Alderete are back from suspensions, but Gaston Alvarez is banned for the game, speaking of the visiting side.
