A couple of weeks ago, Valencia had their match at home to Granada postponed due to a fire in the city with Ruben Baraja’s Valencians sitting in the top-half of the table and challenging for the top seven and the European spots. Their most recent outing saw them collect a point against champions-elect Real Madrid in controversial circumstances at Mestalla, last weekend.

Last Saturday evening, Valencia went 2-0 up in the first half an hour of the match with goals from Hugo Duro and Roman Yaremchuk. Vinicius Junior scored a brace to bring the game back level but the second-half was marred by a horrific injury sustained by Mouctar Diakhaby. Madrid thought they had nicked the win deep into stoppage-time when Jude Bellingham scored a header but the referee blew for full-time literally as the Englishman glanced the ball into the corner – he was then sent off for his protestations.


In his second stint in charge of the club, Jose Bordalas is once again getting his Getafe side to punch above their weight as they aim for a top seven finish and potential European qualification. The Madrid-based outfit have actually been a lot more entertaining team to watch than a typical Bordalas team would usually be.

That was shown in great detail last weekend as they shared a 3-3 draw with Las Palmas at the Coliseum, last weekend. Jaime Mata and Mason Greenwood helped Getafe race into a 2-0 lead before Sandro got a goal back. Getafe then went 3-1 up with a strike by Nemanja Maksimovic. Sergi Cardona and Munir, though, brought the Canarians back to all square before the hour mark.



As mentioned, Valencia are missing key defender Mouctar Diakhaby as he suffered a severe leg injury against Real Madrid, last weekend.

PREDICTED XI (4-4-2): Mamardashvili; Foulquier, Ozkacar, Mosquera, Gaya; Perez, Pepelu, Guillamon, Canos; Yaremchuk, Duro

UNAVAILABLE: Diakhaby (Injured)



Getafe have two suspension issues for this weekend’s visit to Valencia as both Djene and Omar Alderete are missing for that reason, whilst Mauro Arambarri is out injured.

PREDICTED XI (4-3-3): Soria; Carmona, Duarte, Alvarez, Rico; Maksimovic, Milla, Moriba; Greenwood, Mayoral, Mata

UNAVAILABLE: Djene (Suspended), Alderete (Suspended), Arambarri (Injured)



This one has become the ‘Jose Bordalas derby’. A rivalry had begun during Bordalas’ first stint in charge of Getafe before the Spaniard then swapped Getafe for Valencia a couple of years ago and the matches between these two sides tend to be fiery with lots of cards and lots of stoppage-time. Given the nature of the recent matches involving these two, an entertaining but controversial encounter is to be expected at Mestalla with both teams scoring seeming quite likely.
