LaLiga – Getafe – Athletic Bilbao on Match-day 10
Tuesday’s clash between Getafe and Athletic Bilbao, sees sixteenth take on sixth in the League.
Getafe’s campaign so far has seen them accrue eight points this season
Getafe’s recent run of poor form will be worrying for manager Quique, with a 0-0 draw to Rayo Vallecano in their last fixture, which followed a defeat to R Madrid. Deep Blues will be fired up for this next match, but mustn’t throw caution to the wind.
Also, Getafe need to find a way to generate wins on a consistent basis, as they’ve recorded five losses in their last nine fixtures. Their position is sixteenth in the League and they have eight points, that is, 2W, 5L and 2D having won two fixtures, drawn two meetings, and lost five fixtures.
When Getafe host Athletic Bilbao, they will do so on the back of one win, one dart, and three losse on their own ground.
Getafe will have 11 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
It is likely that one key players will miss Tuesday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Quique and his Getafe team.
Athletic Bilbao have 17 points to their name, going into this tie
Ernesto Valverde will know at the end of this next match, whether Athletic Bilbao’s season is back on track, having lost their last fixture and drawn against Seville before that.
Also, Athletic Bilbao keep finding ways to win, having secured five victories in their last eight fixtures is astonishing this season. With a sixth position in the league and 5 wins, 2 losses and 2 draws, they currently have 17 points in the League having won five games, drawn two meetings, and lost two games.
Athletic Bilbao have won two matches and drawn one game of their three League matches away from home this season.
A win in this fixture, would take Athletic Bilbao’s points from 17 to 20, so far this season.
Good atacking and defensive team
Defence begins with attack and Athletic Bilbao have defended well as a team, borne out by conceding six goals in their previous matches. Every player has contributed to them delivering a solid defensive display this LaLiga season. Athletic Bilbao will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (17). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Alex Berenguer (3), Oihan Sancet (3), and Inaki Williams (3).
Athletic Bilbao are likely to be missing one of their key players when they start Tuesday’s game, due to injury and illness.
