Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Elche and Getafe square off against each other at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero on the last day of the season. Both sides are three points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that they would be happy with one point from the decider. Both Bigas and Milla are back from suspensions, while Gonzalo Verdu is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Los Azulones, on the other hand, have drawn each of their last four league fixtures. Getafe are likely to adopt a cautious approach in Sunday’s clash, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Forward Jaime Mata has been struggling with injury of late, while defender Stefan Mitrovic is back from suspension. In the first half of the season Elche defeated Getafe 1-0 thanks to Lucas Perez’s goal.

Roco’s international appearance started with the under-17 squad in 2009 while his senior international debut was in 2012. He was named in the 30-man list by Jorge Sampaoli for the 2014 FIFA World Cup but was cut from the final list.
