• Getafe beat Granada 3-1 when the sides last met back in October.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored three of each clubs’ last six matches in all competitions.
  • Granada have won eight of their 13 home games this season.
  • Getafe have won six of their 13 away games this season.

Hard to know how either team will perform following their 3-month break

Both teams last league games were back in early March and both sides ended the day with an extra point to their names. Granada drew 1-1 away at fellow mid-table side Levante while Getafe were held to a goalless draw at home by relegation battlers Celta Vigo. Getafe sit 8pts clear of Granada heading into Friday’s clash and boast a goal difference that is +11 better off than their hosts’.

However, Granada head into this game as the form favourites having won three, drawn two and only lost one of their last six competitive matches, as Getafe have suffered three defeats and picked up one draw and two wins during that same period. Getafe claimed all 3pts when the pair last locked horns in October, running out 3-1 winners in their own backyard thanks to goals from Angel, Arambarri and Timor.

Getafe have outperformed Granada so far this season

The hosts have secured eight wins from their 13 home games this season while Getafe have won six of their 13 away trips, so you can see why it is going to be difficult to pick a winner this Friday. The hosts have only drawn twice at home and their guests have only played out three stalemates on the road, which suggests that we will more than likely see a winner this Friday.

Granada score an average of 1.23 goals per home game and concede a mere 0.62 goals while Getafe score an average of 1.23 goals per away game and concede 0.92 goals, all of which suggests we will be in for a tight, tense and low-scoring affair between these two clubs. Only 38% of Granada’s home games and Getafe’s away trips have seen both teams score this season and that is why we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0 on Friday.

Friday nights’ match could go either way

Friday’s clash really does feel like it could go either way this weekend which is why we have backed a double chance bet on the home and away win. Getafe have outperformed Granada so far this season, scoring more and conceding fewer goals, which is why they sit four places above Friday’s hosts in the La Liga table. We’re predicting Getafe will claim a 1-0 win on Friday but the double chance bet covers us if Granada end up securing all 3pts instead.
