Getafe vs Leganes: Home side could extend lead in Champions League race

Getafe vs Leganes: Home side could extend lead in Champions League race

Getafe could extend the gap between them and fifth place Alaves if they can beat Leganes on Saturday afternoon.

Few would have put money on or expected Jose Bordalas’ side to be sat fourth place and in a healthy position to qualify for the Champions League at the start of the season, but that is now a fact and they will be looking to continue their superb run against Leganes.

Getafe have been in excellent form, winning four of their last six and picking up two draws, whilst Bordalas’ side have been racking up the goals too with strike force Jaime Mata and Jorge Molina grabbing the attention of many onlookers.

A win on Saturday will see the Madrid based side go nine five points ahead of Alaves, who host Atletico Madrid this weekend.

Leganes arrive at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez in in-different form, having lost last time out to Girona and lost three in their last five.

Whilst they sit eight points ahead of the relegation places, Mauricio Pellegrino will know that the gap can be closed in a matter of rounds.

Team News

Amath Ndiaye and Markel Bergara will miss out for the home side but other than that, Bordalas has a pretty fit squad to select from.

For the visitors, Kenneth Omeruo is suspended, meaning Diego Reyes is expected to feature in defence, whilst Alexander Szymanowski is still ruled out along with Youssey En-Nesyri.

Expected XI’s

Getafe: Soria, Suarez, Cabrera, Djene, Antunes, Foulquier, Arambarri, Portillo, Maksimovic, Mata, Molina

Leganes: Cuellar, Reyes, Siovas, Bustinza, Nyom, Perez, Recio, Silva, Rodriguez, Carillo, Braithwaite

Prediction

Getafe are seven games unbeaten but they have only kept one clean sheet in their last six games. Leganes suffered their first home defeat against Girona last time out and they will be looking to bounce back.

3-0. We do not expect anything but a Getafe win.
