Real Sociedad visit struggling Getafe

Real Sociedad visit struggling Getafe

October 29, 2017 Off By Kristofer McCormack

Real Sociedad head to a Getafe side desperate for points.

El Geta are winless in four after a surprisingly good start to their campagin. Despite sitting in 14th, another loss might see Getafe slip into the early season relegation battle.

Real Sociedad form hasnt been much better than the host as they have won just one of their last six games in the league. Eusebio will be hoping that his team can carry momentum from their European campagin this season into this fuxture. A win for La Real could see them climb above Leganes into seventh if results go their way.

The visitor can add Illaramendi to the list absentees after he got sent off in their daraw against Espanyol last week. Zurutuza, Martinez, Rodrigues and Agirretxe  are also out with injury. Getafe meanwhile will be without Pacheo, Montero and Shibaski.

Past fixtures at this stadium favour Sociedad, who are unbeaten in their last three visits, although they have only won one in that streak. It promises to a be a bit jagged with both sides missing key men and although history favours the visitors, Getafe have already shown this season that they are capable of a shock.
