Granada was regarded from the very beginning, as a team that will struggle to avoid relegation and so far the predictions have been confirmed. Getafe can further aggravate their misery, by handling the visitors another defeat, while consolidating their own position at the middle of the tables.
Match: Getafe vs Granada
Bet: Home Win
Odds: Pinnacle Sports 2.00
This is going to be a very interesting game, because both teams are struggling to replace a couple of veterans that will miss due to either injuries or suspension. Granada was hit harder with two players serving a suspension, and three more including goalkeeper Tono sidelined. He picked up an injury more than a month ago, and his replacement Roberto has conceded one goal per match on average. Their defenses are crippled by three more absentees, with the Rico brothers’ absence creating additional holes in the midfield.
Getafe will only need to replace four players, but with three of them being midfielders, the hosts are facing similar challenges as their opponents. Alvaro and Alcacer will need to play a flawless game upfront, if they are to find their way to the net without the support of playmakers such as Lafita or Leon. Given the fact that the visitors are trusting the second goalie to act as a last line of defense, the two strikers have a good chance of improving their otherwise dismal record.
The odds offered by Pinnacle for a straight home win are the best in the market, but punters should know that Getafe is not overpriced. There is enough value in these odds who justify a bet, but the host will have to play their best for 90 min. if they are to break Granada’s defensive barrier.
