Getafe vs Atletico Madrid (Prediction, April 13th)

GETAFE-VS-ATLETICO-MADRID-13-april-2014-prediction

After a brave display of power in Champions League against FC Barcelona, Atletico Madrid return to La Liga action to defend their title chances. Titan Bet gives them 1.45 odds to win in the match against Getafe, a team battling to avoid relegation, but considering not even Messi could score against Atletico we’re not seeing Courtois conceding against Getafe.

Looking at the form of the two teams you can easily spot the difference in form; Atletico is unbeaten in their last seven La Liga matches while Getafe managed to win once in their last five. The hosts also have a -20 goal difference and have Gavilan, Lago and Moya on the injury list. You can’t really predict them to at least draw against Atletico as their away form is as bad as their home one.

Atletico has to win this match if they want to keep their momentum and stay on top of La Liga. Against them could speak the fact that they are fresh from a very demanding Champions League match, could be too tired to focus fully or even worse commit mistakes in the backline. They can play without Turan and Costa and are expected to win with a great goal margin.

Over 2.5 goals is at 2.05 with Titan Bet, both teams to score at 2.20 but we are going to bet 8 units on Atletico winning both halves at 2.15 with the same bookie.

Real Sociedad vs Valencia (Prediction, March 16)

REAL-SOCIEDAD-VS-VALENCIA-16-march-2014-prediction

Real Sociedad walk into the match against Valencia while having a goal set: the three points that will put even more distance between them and Sevilla. Giving the recent win against Barcelona it is easy to see why the bookies see Sociedad as the overall favourites to win.

After that win against Barcelona, Real Sociedad went on to lose two games in a row, even against Rayo Vallecano, the 19th placed La Liga team, which has a -32 goal difference. Sociedad was leading the game twice, yet every single time, Vallecano proved to be fearless and equalized only to pull the stunner on the 67th minute. Up until then Real Sociedad have been better at home than away, but this record might not end up standing after they host Valencia.

Valencia on the other hand find themselves in a slightly better form after managing to get a point from the match with the fourth placed Athletic Club. To make matters even worse for them Sergio Canales said in a recent interview that if he were to score on Sunday against his former club, he will be celebrating because his days at Valencia are well in the past.

Valencia have been undefeated in five out of their last six matches, and many predict them pulling an upset on the hosts. But looking at the statistics of the head to head games, one would easily notice that in the last five meetings Real Sociedad have won all of them. Ladbrokes has a Valencia win at 3.40, a draw at 3.40, and our pick is 8 units on a Real Sociedad win at 2.10 with the same bookie.

Villareal vs Celta Vigo (Prediction, February 15th)

VILLARREAL-VS-CELTA-DE-VIGO-15-february-2014-prediction

Villarreal hosts Celta Vigo this Saturday in la Liga in which one would look the absolute favorite considering the team’s positioning in the table, yet considering the recent results, some bookmakers tend to favor Celta to be the winner in this match, even though the hosts should win this on paper.

Villareal is a good team, on the 5th place of La Liga, they sport a positive goal difference and three points in front of real Sociedad. The 4-2 loss to Real Madrid may not count as much in the long run, especially if they manage to fix their defensive block as the offensive one rests on the shoulders of Gio dos Santos. After their relegation in 2012, the hosts will be out to show they can do better than they did in their previous La Liga campaign.

Celta on the other hand is on the 11th place, with a negative goal difference and 26 points. On the bright side of things, they have managed to win against Real Sociedad, Almeria and Osasuna. The bottom flight of La Liga table is so tightly connected that seven teams are separated by merely two points, that’s why each and every match has importance.

The visitors are aware of the pressure put on them, and they managed to get back on track, by winning surprisingly against Valencia, and a goalless draw against Athletic Club Bilbao. Many seem to go for a Villareal win, but at the same time, Celta Vigo should not be disregarded. For the same reason we decided to place a bet with 7 units on the number of goals to be over 2.5, at 1.72 with odds from TitanBet.

Getafe vs. Zaragoza (Recap)

Recap

Getafe vs. Zaragoza

Friday, March 1st 2013, 21:00 CET

The match between Getafe and Zaragoza ended just the way I have been expecting: a neat, comfortable 2-0 win for Getafe. This also means that I have won the bet I placed on Getafe last week.

Striker Adrián Colunga scored the first goal of the match in the 21st minute, after he knocked the cross of Pedro Leon over the goal line. The second goal came in the 61st minute, when Sergio Escudero added his.

What is the most interesting fact about this game is that both teams finished the match with 10 players. Zaragoza lost a player in the 60th minute when the defender Glenn Loovens was dismissed after receiving the second yellow card for handling. It was the moment when Sergio Escudero took advantage of Pedro Alcolea’s lack of concentration and scored one goal resulting from a free kick.

One essential fact of this match is that Zaragoza could sink into the drop zone in case it wins at Sevilla on Monday. You can also find more information regarding the performances of each team from La Liga here: http://www.goal.com/en-us/results-standings/61/la-liga/table.

All in all, it seems that Getafe are constantly evolving and improving their strategies, and their results are getting better and better with every match played.

Result:+9.9 units, bet won

Getafe vs. Zaragoza (Prediction)

Prediction

Getafe vs. Zaragoza

Friday, March 1st 2013, 21:00 CET

The football teams Getafe and Zaragoza are meeting on the 1st March at La Liga.

The last meeting between the Spanish teams took place last year, on the 6th of October and it was won by Getafe with a 1-0 score. The football player who brought Getafe the victory that day was Diego Castro, who scored the first and only goal of the match in the 64th minute.

In fact, Getafe have won one match out of the latest five head-to-head confrontations against Zaragoza. Zaragoza have two matches and the other two matches ended in draw.

On the other hand, if I were to judge by the last five matches played by each team, Getafe are the undeniable favourites. While Zaragoza has 2 defeats, 3 draws and no victory, Getafe have 2 defeats and 3 victories achieved against Mallorca this year on the 23rd of February (3-1), against Celta on the 16th of February and (3-1), and another one against Deportivo from the 2nd of February (3-1).

All in all, I think there is no doubt that Getafe are playing their best football and have started this year in amazing shape. Therefore, I am going to place a bet on Getafe’s victory. I bet 10 units at 1.99. The odds I used are from IBCBET.
