We were just wondering what kind of match to pick among the abundance of events on Saturday. Anyway, Allfootballpredictions chose the present you the game from 2nd round of LaLiga between Getafe and Bilbao.
Getafe team news and preview
Getafe is so close to participating in Champions League last season. They performed great during the whole season and cemented the 4th place most of the time, surprisingly or not. We should all greet and applaud the great job done by their manager Pepe Bordalas. During the first match against Atletico Madrid, Getafe lost their main striker Molina as the latter got an early red card. That will inevitably weaken their performance in attack.
Athletic Bilbao highlights
Bilbao is flying high at the moment as in the last round they beat Barca with that amazing goal of Aduriz. But it wasn’t just the individual class of their striker, the overall performance was great, the defensive play, in particular, set apart. All, familiar to the Spanish football know that Bilbao performance last campaign was divided into 2 parts. During the 1st part under the tutelage of Berizzo, they tried to play attacking football with high ball control and defensive line. That hadn’t worked out for Bilbao as they recorded too many losses. During the 2nd part, somewhere in December, Bilbao was taken by their current manager Gaizka Garitano. He improved the performance of the team as a whole, focusing on the defense and lethal counter-attacks. As a consequence, the team started winning their matches and finished 8th, with the same points as the 7th placed Espanyol.
Today’s football prediction 24.08.2019: Getafe vs Athletic Bilbao
Considering the style of play of both teams, their H2H matches last season and the absence of Molina, we think that Under 2.5 Goals is the most obvious outcome for the match.
