Quique Sanchez Flores was sacked as Getafe manager in March with the club, based on the outskirts of Madrid, facing a return to the second division. They replaced him with their former boss, Jose Bordalas, who had Getafe punching well above their weight in the UEFA Europa League a couple of seasons ago. However, his aggression and intensity has taken its time to pay off in results.
The home team do, though, come into this on the back of an absolutely vital 1-0 win away to Real Betis, who have little to play for as they sit firmly in the top six. Omar Alderete’s 69th minute winner means they begin this weekend’s round of fixtures sitting just outside of the bottom three and the relegation places.
Whilst Bordalas’ input may have taken its time, it is very much beginning to finally rub off on his players and just in the nick of time. That aforementioned 1-0 win at Betis means they have suffered just one defeat in their last four matches.
After being beaten by Real Madrid in the final of the Copa del Rey in Seville a few weeks ago, Osasuna have recovered relatively well as they continue to try and finish in the top seven of La Liga and earn, as a result, UEFA Europa Conference League qualification. The Pamplona club begin the weekend sitting seventh with two games left of the season.
Under the management of Jagoba Arrasate, Osasuna have flirted with qualification for European football for the last couple of seasons and now the Pamplona club can taste it. Their most recent outing, a 2-0 win at home to Athletic Club, made it two wins in their last three matches.
In what is quite a low-scoring league anyway, Osasuna are the embodiment and representation of a side that can be successful playing such an overtly reactive style of football. They are the lowest scorers in the top-half by some margin and, in fact, their 36 games so far this season have consisted of just 73 goals.
There is a lot to play for with two games of La Liga to go and this specific encounter has a lot riding on it at both ends of the table. If results go against them this weekend, Getafe could head into the final day of the season firmly in the bottom three and destined for the drop to the Segunda. Osasuna, on the other hand, could strengthen their grip on a top seven finish and a return to European football for the first time since they reached the semi-finals in the 2006/07 campaign. Osasuna have notched just 34 goals in 36 games, whilst Getafe have one of the most defensive and aggressive styles of football so a low-scoring encounter is expected for this one, regardless of the match result.
TIP: UNDER 2.5 GOALS
