Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Las Palmas will be aiming to return to winning ways in La Liga when they square off against Getafe in the suburbs of Madrid. Los Amarillos have been struggling to find their best form in the first half of the season and, as a result, they are stuck at the bottom of the La Liga standings. Las Palmas aim to escape the relegation as soon as possible and upcoming festive fixtures are of big importance for the rock-bottom side. Getafe, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal of late, but they sit in the top half of the table ahead of Matchday 17 and they are on the right track to secure yet another La Liga survival. Los Azulones are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that los Amarillos do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment, we predict the hosts will pick up all three points from Wednesday’s football match.
Highlighted Player (Jefferson Montero):
The 26-year-old Jefferson Montero is a lightning quick winger who plays for Swansea City in the English Premier League. After starting his career in the youth ranks at Emelec, Montero made his senior professional debut with them. But his first real impact was at Independiente Valle, which brought him a contract with Villarreal in 2009. Montero, however, struggled to establish himself at the Spanish club and spent his time on loans with Levante and Real Betis. He then moved to Liga MX club Morelia, where he would go on to play more than 60 games in two years. His pace and guile caught the attention of Swansea who brought him to Premier League in 2014. Montero was part of the 2007 Pan American Games winning Ecuador team – the first international trophy for the nation. He made his full debut in 2010 and has 56 caps and 10 goals to his credit so far.
