Valencia has almost twice as many points, but it can be said that both teams are satisfied with the previous season. Valencia certainly, because they are still undefeated and they are holding that second place on the table, with four points less than Barcelona with which they have played a draw in the last round. Valencia has expectedly passed further in the Cup, while Getafe was eliminated, but they are doing very good as returnees in the elite rank, and they are in the middle of the table with a defeat in the last round. Two seasons ago, both duels between these two teams ended with a result 2-2.
Getafe had some ups and downs this season, and all in all they made four wins, four draws and four defeats. They are close to the middle of the table, and this team is quite satisfactory for this team, with the proviso that they were eliminated from the Cup after two defeats from Alaves. It seems that they completely neglected the Cup and it was clear after a defeat at home, and on Thursday they lost to Aston Villa with 3-0 and that was the end.
They lost last weekend in the championship to Espanyol, so they broke a series of four duels in which they did not lose. Two draws and wins were made in this series, and both wins were made at home, where they played much better. Due to the suspension in this round, there will be no players from the last line, Cale and Antunes, and that is a big handicap.
Valencia is not giving up and this team is undefeated after a great derby against Barcelona. They could even won, but the match ended with 1-1 when they received a goal only eight minutes before the end, but it is fair to say that the rival was seriously damaged by the result 0-0, given that their goal was annulled. Valencia also showed quality and courageously opposed a strong opponent. Psychological it is very important for “Bats” that they are still undefeated this season, and they continued the series in the Cup, where they defeated Saragossa twice.
In the remainder on their field, they celebrated with 4-1 in a combined team and Santi Mina took good advantage of the opportunity he got and scored two goals. Coach Marcelino could have completely changed the starting line due to injuries, although he had a difficult situation after winning 2-0. Murillo had been injured earlier, and they lost another two players for injury against Barcelona. Center-back Garay will not be able to play in this match as well as midfielder Guedes and those are two big handicaps. Vezo will be in center-back position and Pereira in midfield.
Getafe is playing very solidly this season and they are very unpleasant on their field, however, Valencia is even better and this team has not lost any matches so far and they apply for a big favourite in this match. However, we do not think it will be easy for the guests and we believe that the host can score a goal, which we certainly expect from Valencia.
