Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Villarreal and Getafe go head to head at Estadio de la Ceramica in the La Liga round 25 curtain-raiser. The Yellow Submarine came from behind to share the spoils with Alaves, but they need to start winning on a regular basis if they are to rejoin the race for a spot in European competitions. The likes of Alfonso Pedraza, Ramon Terrats, Dani Parejo, Yeremi Pino, and Denis Suarez should miss out with injuries for the home side.
Los Azulones, on the other hand, produced a fine performance in a 3-2 win over Celta Vigo. The capital club, though, produce much better showings at home than on the travels, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the home side. In their last meeting at the venue Villarreal defeated Getafe 2-1. The good news for the visiting team is that defender Gaston Alvarez is back from suspension.
Highlighted Player (Djené):
A central defender who can equally be deployed as a right-back, Djene Dakonam has emerged as one of the most influential Getafe players in the 2017/18 season. His road to prominence was a long one, however, and Djene had to bide his time in order to be recognized for quality he undoubtedly possesses. Dapaong-born Togolese international, Djene Dakonam made his first football steps as a youth member of Etoile Filante.
Spells in Benin and Cameroon with Tonnerre d’Abomey and Coton Sport, respectively, saw Djene Dakonam grab attention of Alcoron, who moved in to bring him to Spain in 2014. During two years in Spain Djene Dakonam made 59 league appearances before moving to Sint-Truidense. It was in Belgium that Djene Dakonam proved his defensive versatility and Getafe came calling the very next year, in 2017.
Djene proved to be an instant hit with the Azulones and is hoping a move to one of Europe’s biggest clubs will not be too far away for him. The likes of Arsenal and Tottenham have been sniffing around him during the summer transfer window in 2018 but were ultimately scared off by his £31 million release clause.
Highlighted Team (Villarreal):
Villarreal CF was founded on 10th of March 1923. In the year 1998 Villarreal managed to reach the Primera Division for the first time in history of the club. After 1 season the club could not manage to stay in the league and go regulated to the Segunda Division. In the last couple of years Villarreal developed itself to a stable club in the Primera Division.
