Getafe has entered a downward spiral and they are on the verge of losing 10 games in a row while sinking deeper in the second half of the tables. Luckily they have the unique opportunity of collecting three points against bottom placed Deportivo la Coruna, a team that is yet to win the first game away from home.
Match: Getafe vs Deportivo la Coruna
Bet: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: Pinnacle Sports 2.08
At a first glance, Getafe might seem like the clear favorite to win this match, and the head to head results would only reinforce this conviction. The last time they faced Deportivo la Coruna, the hosts emerged victorious by scoring four goals and conceding just one, so they seem entitled to be optimistic. Sadly, the same factor that caused them to lose 9 games in a row can jeopardize this fixture, as Getafe misses five essential players. Four of them used to create the back line, and they are simply impossible to replace.
While the midfield and offensive are in great shape, the defensive breaches are simply too numerous to close and even a team as ineffective as Deportivo la Coruna can prove dangerous. The visitors are in no better condition, as they also play without five veterans which usually fulfill defensive roles. Add to this the fact that Deportivo has conceded a massive 45 goals this season and it becomes easy to explain why the bookmakers regard the hosts as favorites to win.
Dismissing the string of nine consecutive defeats is not easy, but fortunately we don’t have to take a leap of faith with Getafe. An equally lucrative bet with huge chances to turn profitable is the Over 2.5 goals to be scored, as Pinnacle Sports gives odds of 2.08 to those willing to bet on this outcome.
