Soccer Getafe CF

Getafe Club de Futbol was founded in 1946 and refounded in 1983. They have participated in Spain’s top-level football for 12 years from 1994 to 2016. They were relegated after the 2015/16 season but made a return immediately after the 2016/17 season after defeating Huesca and Tenerife to make the playoffs and earn a promotion.

They made it to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Cup in 2008, losing to Bayern Munich via the “away goals” rule. Getafe has also qualified for the UEFA Europa League twice, in 2010/11 and 2019/20, the latter as a result of their 5th place finish in the final 2018/19 La Liga table, their best finish ever in the top flight.

37-year old Jorge Molina led Getafe with 14 goals scored last season. The Alcoy, Spain native signed with Getafe as a free agent in 2016 and immediately scored 20 goals in his first season with the club. Molina has scored a total of 43 goals in a total of 117 appearances for Getafe. Jaime Mata also scored 14 goals for Getafe last season. The 30-year old striker from the Spanish national team scored 41 goals for Villadolid from 2016-18 before moving to Getafe in 2018. He has scored 15 goals in 36 appearances for Getafe.

What are the Moneyline Odds?





CD Alaves


Odds from as of 8/27/19

Soccer Alaves

Deportivo Alaves was founded 98 years ago as Sport Friends Club and is recognized as the third most successful Basque club behind Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad. They have played in the La Liga since the 2016-17 season and finished 11th in the final table for the 2018/19 La Liga season.

In their European competition debut, they made it to the final of the 2001 UEFA Cup, losing 4-5 to Liverpool on a “golden goal”. They also reached the final of the Copa del Rey in 2017 where they lost 1-3 to Barcelona. Overall, they have spent 37 seasons in the Segunda Division and only 15 in the La Liga. However, they have kept their place in the top flight since 2015.

Argentinian Jonathan Calleri led Alaves with 9 goals last season. The 25-year old from Buenos Aires started his career for the All Boys and played for Boca Juniors before a series of loans that ultimately led him to Alaves last season. Calleri joined RCD Espanol on a one-season deal. Alaves added forward Lucas Perez who played 15 matches for West Ham United last season. The club also netted German striker Joselu who played 46 matches for Newcastle United from 2017-2019. The 29-year old scored the winning goal during Alaves’ 1-0 opening match victory against Levante.

Soccer Who Wins?

Getafe finished 5th in the La Liga last season and barely missed out on a Champions League berth. They enter this match as the soccer betting favorites to beat Alaves. On the other hand, Alaves was 11th during the same season and nine points behind Getafe in the final La Liga table.

Getafe has lost just once in their last six head to head meetings with Alaves, going 3-2-1 SU against their opponent. Overall, Getafe has also lost just once in their last six matches played across all competitions with two wins and three draws. On the other hand, Alaves has not lost in its last six matches across all competition with three wins and three draws.

Both teams have displayed good form as of late and I think this will go down to experience and talent which Getafe has more of than Alaves. Add the fact that this will be played at Getafe’s turf and I’m picking them to win this match. Prediction: Getafe
