Real Betis vs Getafe will be the interesting closing La Liga Round 5 match on Sunday, which will be held at Estadio Benito Villamarín, in Sevilla. Both teams started this season weakly. However, they have a big potential this season and can be very dangerous opponents facing even top-class teams. Last season, Getafe finished at 5th place and qualified to UEFA Europa League, what is a very good result for such a small club, comparing to who left without Europe competitions. Please read our preview about this thrilling Real Betis vs Getafe Primeira Division match, here below.
Both teams have a 4 games streak without saving the clean sheet. Last season Getafe won twice against Getafe in La Liga. Getafe failed to score only once during the last 5 meetings. Teams shared by 2 wins, 2 losses and drew 1 game in 5 last games. These teams are very similar in playing level, so games between them are always exciting and interesting.
Los Verdiblancos finished last season standing at 10th place, however, year earlier they were at 6th position. It seemed that a very interesting club was growing up that could make good competition with the strongest La Liga teams. However, they sold several leaders and lost great football, which led them to great achievements. Real Betis started this season with surprising lost against Valladolid at home ground. Then, they faced Barcelona at Camp Nou Stadium and even led the match after Nabil Fekir goal at 15th minute. But it only angered the Catalans more, which led to 5 conceded goals. At 79th minute, Loren scored a closing goal and finished the match with final result 2:5. Scoring 2 goals to such a great defence, also a very good result, this shows that the Betis attack should not be underestimated.
During the summer period, Betis made big changes in the team. They appointed new head coach Rubi, with a contract until the 2022 year. Moreover, they spent 100m € on new players, signing well-known players Borja Iglesias, Giovani Lo Celso, Nabil Fekir and others. Most interesting, that they loaned Lo Celso to Spurs for 16m, although, he would be very important in Betis also. Now the Verderones look stronger than last year, so we believe that the result will be appropriate.
Unfortunately, Cristian Tello, one of the attacking leaders, will miss the game due to injury.
Last year Getafe made biggest achievement in last 20 years as they finished at 5th place. They almost saved last-season squad and will try to play the same football. Pepe Bordalás found a really confident way to reach required results. They will play in UEFA Europa League after 9 years break. The team will have an unusually tight schedule meeting not only with La Liga teams, but participating in the second strongest European competition. Two strongest attacking players Jaime Mata and veteran Jorge Molina will try to repeat last season’s results. Together they were involved in more than 30 scored goals.
In the recent game against Leganes, Betis won with 2:1 result playing at Estadio Benito Villamarín, in Sevilla. They strongly pressed opponents at 1st half but failed to score even having 9 goals attempts and 76% of possession. In the second half, Leganes took the lead scoring a goal first. Betis was not taken aback and in 11 minutes they scored 2 goals, returning the leadership to their hands and took 3 very important points in a very tough match.
Unfortunately, Filip Manojlovic, Vitorino Antunes and Nemanja Maksimovic will miss next match due to injuries. Moreover, Djene (main centre-back) will miss one matchday due to indirect red card suspension.
