After winning the Super Cup and going through the Cup round against Ibiza, it’s time to return to LaLiga. The rojiblancos host Getafe tonight (9 pm, GOAL, with refereeing by Lamb Vega) in the last match of the 20th day of the regularity tournament. The team of Marcelino Garcia Toral It arrives in good dynamics, after giving the surprise by defeating Real Madrid in the semifinal played at La Rosaleda in Malaga and Barça in the final at La Cartuja and winning the Balearic team last Thursday, yes, with more suffering than expected and thanks one goal from Nuñez in the 90th minute when everything indicated that the match was heading for extra time. In any case, the goal of achieving the ticket to the round of 16 was achieved and on Thursday Alcoyano, the ‘giant killer’ of the KO tournament after eliminating Huesca and Madrid, awaits in the appointment that will be played in El Collao also to nine at night.
The rojiblancos will have to take advantage of this good dynamic to add the three points in the second league match of the Asturian coach in charge of the team after losing in their debut against Barça in San Mamés (2-3).
Preview Athletic – Getafe
At the end of the day, the League is what it feeds and the situation of the lions is not at all promising with 21 points added in 18 games played (the postponed against Atlético is still pending due to the snowstorm that devastated Madrid) .
Getafe has very similar records to lions. The set led by Pepe Bordalás he has 23 points in the same number of games, nine of them outside the Alfonso Pérez Coliseum, after two wins, three draws and as many defeats. But there is one fact that should make the locals think. The Madrilenians have won two of their last three trips and the one they lost was against Atlético, the leader of Primera, in the Wanda Metropolitano. Their trips to Cádiz and the last one to Elche are counted by victories (0-2 and 1-3 respectively). Their equalized on the scoreboard came on the playing fields of Alavés (0-0), Valencia (2-2) and Eibar (0-0) and were defeated, in addition to the colchoneros, by Real Sociedad and Levante, both by 3-0.
Athletic, for its part, has added 15 of the 21 points reflected in its scoreboard at home, after five victories and four defeats in nine games, without draws. The people of Bilbao have beaten Levante (2-0), Sevilla (2-1), Betis (4-0), Huesca (2-0) and Elche (1-0), in the match that curiously caused the dismissal of Gaizka Garitano and the three points of Bilbao were taken by Cádiz (0-1), Celta (0-2), Real Sociedad (0-19 and Barça (2-3) in Marcelino’s debut.
It does not seem that the Asturian coach is going to make many changes in the eleven with respect to his eleven type, with that 4-4-2 so characteristic of his ideology. The eleven could be the one formed by Unai Simon under sticks, Ander Capa, Yeray, Nuñez and Balenziaga in defense (keep in mind that Iñigo Martinez still injured and Yuri left yesterday at the last minute), From Marcos, Dani Garcia, Victor and Muniain in the center of the field with Williams and Raul Garcia as more advanced men.
We must also take advantage of the good moment of these last three players in a match in which we must win yes or yes to regain the pulse of LaLiga and overcome places in the table.
