Getafe Team News

Quique Sanchez Flores´s team is looking to make the European breakthrough this season after a 2-year drought. After they made the Europa League in season 2018/19, where they achieved a notable success by entering the knockout stages, they started faltering and had to settle for midtable finishes.

With two consecutive wins over Sociedad and Osasuna in mid-September, it seemed they were starting to turn around their poor form, but then entered another slump. The point they managed to win away from home against Vallecano in the previous round is a step in the right direction, with a couple of “easier” games coming up against teams from the lower end of the table.

Athletic Bilbao Team News

The all-domestic team from the Basque Country currently finds itself amidst a 4-your European drought. During that period the only bright moment was winning the Supercup two seasons ago, which means Ernesto Valverde has to find a magic formula to bring Athletic back to the European stage.

The primary goal is to make the Europa League, but there are rumours circulating that the board and the coach both agree their current squad has enough quality to fight for a spot in the Champions League.

The home defeat they suffered last Saturday to Atletico Madrid was their first one since the start of September, ending their 4-game unbeaten streak. Today´s clash seems like an ideal opportunity for them to regain momentum before the clash against Barcelona, but if we scratch beneath the surface, we immediately notice this game will be a very demanding task.

Getafe vs. Athletic Bilbao Prediction

Bilbao have a very unfavourable h2h tradition with Getafe; it is so bad we can freely say that Getafe have turned into a bogey team for them. The last time Bilbao managed to win at Coliseum Alfonso Perez was more than six years ago. In the meantime, they only beat them once in season 2020/21 at home.

Getafe´s form is slowly rising, which should be enough for at least one goal after they failed to find the back of the net in their last two games. On the other hand, Bilbao are boasting a very efficient offense, which has been averaging almost 2 gpg and will be boosted by Ander Herrera, who will return after serving a one-game suspension.
