Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez will open Saturday’s program in th La Liga round 8. Los Azulones came from behind to share the spoils with ten-man Athletic Club in midweek, with the team moving closer to top ten in the standings. Getafe are tough to beat in Madrid and given Villarreal’s slow start to the season, we are positive that the hosts are going to grab something from the match. Both Luis Milla and Enes Unal continue to miss out with injuries, while talented forward Juanmi Latasa is pushing for a start after scoring the equalizer as a substitute at San Mames.
The Yellow Submarine, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Girona, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on Getafe, who have been showing signs of improvement of late. Both Jorge Cuenca and Francis Coquelin are injured for the visiting team.
