Getafe’s wait for a first win of the season in La Liga continues, but they will have another opportunity to move off the foot of the table on Monday when they host Celta Vigo. The visitors will be looking to end a two-match losing streak.
La Liga Preview
To say it has been a disappointing start to the new La Liga season for Getafe would be an understatement. They are rooted to the bottom of the Spanish top-flight, having failed to win this season. Celta Vigo are in 15th coming into this weekend, but will need to end their run of defeats.
Getafe are in danger of being cut adrift at the bottom of La Liga at this early stage of the season, as they have picked up just two points from nine games. It is a disappointing start to the season for the side that were playing in Europe just 12 months ago.
They have scored just three times, while they have conceded 13, which is the joint-worst defensive record in the Spanish top-flight this season. They have at least ended a seven game losing streak over recent weeks, as they have collected draws against Real Sociedad and Levante in their last two games.
Celta Vigo will be anxiously looking over their shoulders already given the form that they have been in. They have lost their last two, which has taken their tally of defeats for the season to six. Only Alaves and Getafe have lost more frequently this season.
Celta could drop into the relegation places should results go against them this weekend, and they will be looking to avoid a third straight defeat at all costs. Their last defeat came on Sunday evening, as they were beaten at home by Champions League-chasing Sevilla 1-0.
Getafe vs Celta Vigo Head to Head
Celta Vigo are unbeaten in their last three matches against Getafe. Their 0-0 draw in March 2020 ended a run of five without a positive result against Getafe. However, last season’s 1-0 victory in this fixture in May ended a run of eight without a win against this weekend’s rivals.
Getafe vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Getafe have lost against Celta Vigo just twice in the last six years. It could be their perfect opportunity to get a first win of the season, against a side themselves that are struggling for form.
