Getafe vs Leganes
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 4 February 2018
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Leganes are responsible for one of the biggest upsets of the season after they’ve eliminated Real Madrid from Copa del Rey thanks to an amazing 1-2 win away at Santiago Bernabeu. They will travel to Coliseum Alfonso Perez this weekend only four days after playing a 1-1 draw at home to Sevilla in the first leg of their cup semis.
Since the Legionaries are on a fair distance to the relegation zone in Primera, we can expect Asier Garitano to mix up his cards a bit for this travel and rest his key men for the much-important rematch with Sevilla scheduled for next Wednesday at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Even without this, Getafe could be regarded as pretty clear favourites here given that they’ve indeed been a very tough nut to crack so far in the season at Coliseum Alfonso Perez. They are currently level on points with Leganes in the middle of the Primera Division standings mainly thanks to impressive showings in front of the home fans where they have won five and drawn two of last seven league outings.
Additionally, the team led by Jose Bordalas will head into this high on confidence after holding Sevilla to a 1-1 draw away from home in the previous round. It was the team’s top scorer Angel who bagged the late stoppage-time leveller. The Spanish forward has notched eight goals so far in the season and he should have a nice chance to keep his fine form going knowing that the visitors have shipped two or more goals in each of last three league ties.
Getafe vs Leganes: Head-to-head
Leganes have been pretty successful in previous visits to Coliseum Alfonso Perez where they’ve won three and lost one of four matches so far.
Nonetheless, Getafe came on top when the two sides met in this term of Primera Division (1-2 in early-September last year at Estadio Municipal de Butarque).
Getafe have won two and drawn one of last three meetings with the Legionaries.
