Espanyol welcomes Getafe
Espanyol welcomes Getafe in Barcelona in a match from the 14th round of the Spanish La Liga. We are going to present you our La Liga predictions for this fixture at the RCDE Stadium on Sunday.
Espanyol continue to struggle, positioned in the relegation zone of the league. Right now the Catalans are 19th in the table with 8 points, being 5 points behind the 17th Real Betis and the safe zone. At least so far the appointment of Pablo Machin as a manager is not delivering the results Espanyol’s board hoped for.
Espanyol lost four of their last five games and they are in a run of three consecutive losses at the moment. Before the international break Los Pericos visited Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano and suffered a 1-3 loss. Sergi Darder opened the score for Espanyol, but until the end of the game Atletico took control and scored three times.
Against Getafe Espanyol will be without the suspended Naldo and the injured Iturraspe and Pablo Piatti.
Getafe are once again having a solid season in La Liga, being currently 7th in the table with 20 points. Maybe you remember that last season they were Top 4 contenders, so now they are managing to keep this level.
Getafe are unbeaten in their last three games in La Liga. In the previous round they hosted Osasuna at home, but only won a point after a 0-0 draw.
The manager Jose Bordalas has some problems before the next game in Barcelona. Against Espanyol he can’t use the suspended Allan Nyom and the injured Filip Manojlovic, Amath Ndiaye and Bergara.
That’s our La Liga predictions for the game between Espanyol and Getafe from the 14th round. The visitors are the team which is doing better so far, but Los Pericos need points, so they are going to be hungry on the pitch.
