La Liga betting: Getafe vs Malaga


Matchday 14 of La Liga goes this weekend and one match to watch out for is between Getafe and Malaga, two teams separated by only three points in the table.

Malaga CF come into the match off the back off a convincing 4-0 win at home over Valencia last week. It was their first win in La Liga in five games and they will try and use that momentum to get a result as they visit Getafe at Estadio Alfonso Perez.

Manager Maunel Pelligrini will be happy to see defensive midfielder Sergion Sanchez return to the squad but is still without former Brazilian international Julio Baptista who is out with injury. Still, the squad is flush with talent which is why they currently sit in the final Champion's League spot at the moment.

The visitors haven't won on the road since Sept 1 but sport a modest away record of 2-1-3 (W-L-T).

Malaga are close to even with their opposition in the lines with offering them at 2.66 for the outright victory. To lead at halftime the odds increase to 3.30 while the halftime/fulltime result for them is at 4.50.

Getafe look to level up to fourth spot in the standings as they currently sit in seventh with an even record 6-6-1. They have now won two straight including last week's 2-0 win away at Espanyol and will be motivated by a chance to get into the top four.

At home, they've been hit or miss with three wins and three losses - switching between win and loss every other match -  while there have been 19 goals scored in total during those matches. You may notice that they played a Copa Del Rey match a few days ago that resulted in a 0-0 bore draw but quite a few reserves played in that allowing for regular starters to rest and prepare for this contest.

I like the draw result which sits at 3.30 but if you feel the hosts will be able to go level in the table with Malaga then you can take them at 2.62.

I also feel the under 2.5 here at 1.75 is the better selection in the O/U selections given the stinginess of Malaga while on the road - five goals between all teams in their six away games.
