SPA La Liga, 27th round

Posted on Posted in Short previews


Getafe v Huesca; 20:45

Betting suggestion: Getafe -0,75 @1,80 Pinnacle 

Short preview: Without any doubts, Getafe is the biggest surprise of this season so far. They are enjoying the season so far, with 42 points in 26 rounds, keeping the 4th place and believe it or not, the Champions League position with only 6 points less than Real Madrid! Huesca was almost cut off during the winter break, but they returned pretty strong, winning 10 points in last 5 matches and they are currently only 3 points below the relegation zone. In last round, they surprised Sevilla, and I believe that confidence jumped on a pretty high scale but Getafe plays a very “particular” football, with low possession (42,2% on average), plenty of long balls, lots of crosses, using the width, very aggressive, fighting for 2nd balls, actually some kind of English version of football, which isn’t really popular in Spain, but it brings success to this small team from the south of Madrid. Huesca started playing pretty much the same football, trying with early crosses, taking shots from everywhere, using long balls as well, but with 5 men defense. Still,I think that Getafe uses these tactics with bigger success for a longer period and that Huesca should struggle against them.
