Getafe looks tragic
Getafe have a new coach from the summer - Mitchell. So we don't have much data to analyze them.
However, it can be seen that they did not start the new season in La Liga well with three consecutive losses.
It is true that they also met strong rivals.
But Valencia beat them, even playing a whole game with a man less.
And against Sevilla and Barcelona, an average of 0.49 xG (expected goals) is just a tragic achievement.
Getafe play very slowly. And they try to hit mainly from a distance.
Mitchell is clearly not yet fully aware of the game plan. Because he has tried 3 formations for 3 matches.
They scored only one goal and conceded four.
Elche also started weak
Elche escaped relegation last season with only 2 points ahead.
This was an absolutely undeserved achievement. Because according to the xG ranking, they should have been last.
There is nothing surprising in this.
Once they were the team that created the fewest goal positions. And the 3rd, who allowed the most of them in front of his own door.
They also had strong rivals at the start. By recording 2 draws against Bilbao and Sevilla and a loss to Atletico Madrid.
They scored only one goal in those matches.
As in the draw against Sevilla, luck was on their side. And with Bilbalo, the chance turned its back on them.
Prediction for Getafe - Elche
A match between two of the weak teams in LaLiga awaits us. Which also has the character of a survival derby.
Draws, low performance and sometimes only 1 goal, which can be in the most unexpected direction possible, decides everything.
Getafe is the favorite here.
Probably because of the higher ranking last season, the household and the longer experience in the Spanish elite.
I'm not so desperately optimistic as to trust a team in a series of losses.
Who, moreover, made a draw with the same opponent at this stadium last season.
However, a few things are certain:
- Getafe will be looking for victory.
- Elche will be confident after the draw with Sevilla.
- Only 1 of all goals scored and conceded by these two teams since the beginning of the season was in the Second Half.
This gives me a great deal of confidence in my prediction and with a large bet to choose over 1.0 AGL for the First Half.
This bet is canceled on exactly 1 hit until the break.
