  • Remo Freuler is back from suspension and Marten de Roon is expected to make room for the Switzerland international.

  • Amato Ciciretti is a doubt for the trip to Bergamo due to muscular problems.

Espanyol vs Getafe: Match Preview & Prediction

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Team News

 Espanyol
  • Pau Lopez is fit to start in goal for the home side after recovering from a muscle injury.
  • Mario Hermoso returns from suspension and should come straight back into the heart of the back four at the expense of Naldo.
  • Jose Manuel Jurado is expected to feature on the right-hand side of midfield, with Sergio Garcia taking the injured Leo Baptistao’s place up front.
 Getafe
  • No changes are expected for the visitors, who have been performing to very high standards of late in La Liga.
  • Franciso Portillo will retain his place on the right-hand side, with Angel leading the line with Jorge Molina.
  • Three of Getafe’s first-team regulars – Antunes, Mauro Arambarri and Juan Cala – are one booking from a suspension.

Match Facts

There have been under 2.5 goals scored in Espanyol‘s last 6games (La Liga).

Espanyol have seen under 2.5 goals in 9 of their last 10 home matches against Getafe in all competitions.

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 6 of Getafe‘s last 7 games (La Liga).

Getafe have scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 matches (La Liga).

Prediction

  • Espanyol have lost their last two La Liga games, but Quique Sanchez Flores’ men are notoriously difficult to break down and dominate.
  • The hosts haven’t scored in either of those defeats, with a short-term injury to Leo Baptistao sure not to help matters. With Gerard Moreno carrying a calf problem, plenty of the goalscoring burden is placed on Sergio Garcia’s shoulders.
  • Getafe are unbeaten in their last four La Liga games, with Jose Bordalas having his team playing some excellent football. Angel in particular is looking very dangerous indeed.
