Getafe host Valencia on Saturday at 8pm (UK time) looking to drag themselves away from the relegation scrap.
Jose Bordalas’ side are enduring a wretched run of form which has pulled them down to 15th in the table, just three points clear of the relegation zone. But Valencia aren’t quite safe yet either, with Los Che sitting 12th, just six points above 18th.

Getafe vs Valencia build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
After a relatively solid start to the season, many had Getafe pinned for another push at European qualification. However, it’s all gone terribly wrong over the past few months for the Madrid side, who have lost five of their last six La Liga games, picking up just one solitary point during that time. If Bordalas doesn’t turn his side’s form around soon, they could be facing a return to the Spanish second tier for the first time since 2016/17.
While they only sit three points above Getafe themselves, Valencia head west in better form than their Madrid counterparts. Javi Gracia’s men pulled off a dramatic 2-0 win over Celta Vigo last time out, with both goals coming in second-half stoppage time, meaning their only defeats in their last eight La Liga games have come at the hands of Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid — Los Che have taken 12 points from a possible 24 during that time, pulling them closer to the top half of the table.
The last time these two sides met, we were served with an entertaining 2-2 draw which saw a red card for both teams and a 99th-minute equaliser from Valencia. Will we get a repeat of that action here?
- Getafe (vs Real Betis): Soria; Djene, Cabaco, Chakla, Olivera; Nyom, Arambarri, Maksimovic, Cucurella; Angel, Hernandez.
- Valencia (vs Celta Vigo): Cillessen; Correia, Gabriel, Guillamon, Gaya; Wassm Racic, Soler, Blanco; Gomez, Lee.
Getafe are free from injury and suspensions heading into this weekend. Valencia, meanwhile, are without Cristiano Piccini, while Denis Cheryshev is a doubt. Mouctar Diakhaby has recovered from a hamstring problem.

Players to watch:
- Getafe: Nothing has punctuated Getafe’s horrendous recent form more than their lack of goals, with Bordalas’ side netting just once across their last six games and failing to score in their last five. It hasn’t helped that their top scorer, Angel Rodriguez, who has five La Liga goals to his name, hasn’t found the net in any of his last seven appearances, and has scored just once in his previous 14 games. However, Rodriguez did score in the 93rd minute to put Getafe 2-1 up the last time these two sides met, firing home the rebound after Sofian Chakla’s effort hit the post. Bordalas would love nothing more than for Rodriguez to rediscover his golden touch against Valencia this weekend.
- Valencia: Another player to find the net during that 2-2 thriller back in November was Yunus Musah, who displayed all of his pace and dribbling ability to run free of the Getafe defence and fire Valencia in front in the 22nd minute. Since then, Musah has received regular minutes for Valencia, while also picking up his first two senior caps for the United States in friendlies against Wales and Panama, although he is still eligible to play for England, who have capped him 32 times across various youth levels. Still just 18 years old, Musah is a brilliant hybrid of the terrifying speed seen in traditional wingers, and the defensive work rate and slick passing seen from box-to-box midfielders. He’ll be looking to double his goal tally against familiar opposition this weekend.
