Granada CF and Getafe square off in Spanish La Liga soccer action from the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes on Friday afternoon.
Granada CF enter this match sitting in 9th place, holding a record of 11 wins, 5 draws and 11 losses tied with Villarreal on 38 points after back-to-back draws following a 1-1 tie with Levante in their last match before the hiatus for the Coronavirus pandemic. In the match against Levante, Granada fell behind after just 11 minutes and the goal would hold up until the hour mark where Darwin Machis would get Granada back on level terms. Both sides would have their chances down the stretch, but the two sides would ultimately share the spoils as the match finished all square. Machis leads Granada in scoring with 6 goals along with 3 assists while Carlos Fernandez and Antonio Puertas each have 5 goals. Roberto Soldado and Angel Montoro each have a team-high 4 assists for Granada while Rui Silva is the #1 goalkeeper for Granada, conceding 1.12 goals per 90 minutes with 10 clean sheets in 26 league appearances this season.
Getafe on the other hand, come in sitting in 5th position on 46 points with a record of 13 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses, tied with Real Sociedad after a scoreless draw with Celta Vigo in their last match before the pandemic shutdown. Getafe arguably deserved a result after owning 56% possession against Celta, outshooting their opponents 19-3 in terms of goal attempts and 6-2 in regards to shots on goal, but Getafe just couldn’t find the breakthrough goal to send them ahead. Angel Rodriguez leads Getafe in scoring with 10 goals this season while Jaime Mata has 8 goals and 3 assists. Damian Suarez, Jason and Marc Cucurella each have a team-high 4 assists for Getafe on the year. David Soria is the top goaltender for Getafe, conceding just 0.89 goals per 90 minutes with 12 clean sheets in 27 league appearances this season.
These first games back are hard to gauge as you don’t know which teams are going to take a more timid approach to their first match back as everyone’s getting their legs underneath them but other teams may just want to come out full boar and take a shot at catching the other team off guard. Either way, the last six meetings between the two in La Liga has seen both teams score, so with not much of an edge to find otherwise, I’ll side with both teams to score at plus money in this one.
