Sevilla – Getafe Preview

  • Sevilla capitalised on league leaders Real Madrid’s slip-up against upcoming opponents Getafe, following their victory over Cádiz in the previous round. In turn, the gap to first place is now just five points, and with their game in hand, Sevilla can continue dreaming of a first league title since 1946 if they can extend their current five-game unbeaten run (W4, D1).
  • Home manager Julen Lopetegui’s record in personal H2Hs against Getafe (W6) is truly flawless, with no goals conceded by his squads across those encounters. Expectations of a straightforward win for Sevilla are further bolstered by their league-high return of ten clean sheets this term (a 53% shutout rate) ahead of the round.
  • On the other hand, Getafe remain vulnerable to the relegation zone’s gravitational pull, despite a six-game unbeaten run in the league seeing them move out of the bottom three for the first time since the opening day. However, they will likely struggle here, after failing to win 13 of their 14 league games entered as pre-match outsiders (D6, L7). Albeit that sole success was a 1-0 win vs Real Madrid in their previous outing!
  • Compounding matters for the visitors is the fact they are one of just two sides yet to register a top-flight away win this term (D4, L5). A major contributing factor to that woeful record is Getafe’s league-low tally of just three away goals scored (0.33 per match on average).
  • Players to watch: Lucas Ocampos has scored in four of his last seven appearances, three of which were the sole goal in 1-0 victories for Sevilla (including ET). Enes Ünal has been Getafe’s only reliable scorer this term with six goals – at least four more than any other squad player. All of those were netted across his last nine games.
  • Hot stat: Getafe have averaged 3.67 yellow cards per game across the last six H2Hs.
