Match Preview & Team News

Leganes vs Getafe predictions and tips for Friday night’s South Madrid derby that will take place at Butarque. After back-to-back La Liga defeats, Pepe Bordalas’ Getafe will be keen to bounce back when they face local rivals Leganes.

Little to celebrate for Getafe so far in the new year

Getafe were defeated just before Christmas for 1-0 at Villarreal. At home their form was solid tough as they recorded 13 points in their last five games and were confident ahead of their derby against Real Madrid at Coliseum Alfonso Perez. A win in that match would have significantly increased their chances of finishing in the top four. Things, however, didn’t go following the plan for Pepe Bordalas’ men who succumbed to Los Blancos with a straight 0-3.

Keeper David Soria made terrible mistakes, and the whole team will want to get back to winning ways immediately. They are coming into this weekend’s Derbi del sur de Madrid on the back also a defeat to Badalona in the Copa Del Rey for 2-0. Despite that result wasn’t pleasing for them, we need to remember that they made several changes and that, before those two consecutive defeats in La Liga, Getafe were in shining form with seven wins and just one defeat in the previous ten games.

This Friday’s clash against their fierce rivals is a great opportunity for Getafe to get back to winning ways and close the gap between themselves and the 4th place to five points. Getafe have also qualified for the next round of the Europa League.

Leganes have been inconsistent

It has been a very inconsistent campaign for Leganes, who have won only one of their first 15 La Liga matches. Los Pepineros have started to show some progress recently under boss Javier Aguirre but the road is still long. Against Barcelona and Sevilla they went very close and only lost with 1 goal margin (1-2 and 1-0) . They are now unbeaten in their last four La Liga matches with two wins against Celta Vigo and Espanyol and two draws away from home against Alaves and Valladolid.

Even if Leganes are still in 19th place, those recent positive results have shown them the light at the end of the tunnel. If they beat Getafe in the derby and other results go their way, they could make it out from the relegation zone.

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

All considered, there are 12 places and 16 points difference between those two rivals. Surely Lega are improving, but we do not see how they could have been made the small favourites ahead of this clash. Man for man, Getafe are the better side, and we expect them to be fully focused and edge this derby. Backing Getafe to win looks a valuable option and we would suggest a 2-1 as a Correct Score.

Goals Market Prediction

Both teams have been rather shaky at the back in recent weeks. Leganes are improving their attacking threat and we expect goals from both ends in what is going to be a close derby business.
