The visitors are flying yet the hosts have also looked strong in their own stadium and that should mean an entertaining game with plenty of goals

The Coliseum Alfonso Perez may not be one of the most intimidating statiums in La Liga, yet this season the division's biggest teams have found their visits to Getafe extremely tough.

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla all recorded wins in their respective matches against Los Azulones, but by single goal margins and Pepe Bordalas' side were worthy of at least a point in all three of those encounters.

Villarreal, meanwhile, were thrashed 4-0 back in September while Real Socidedad were beaten 2-1 last month, with Getafe's last home match seeing them produce an emphatic 4-1 win over lowly Alaves.

The Madrid outfit must, therefore, be taken extremely seriously by a Valencia side that has hopes of managing a creditable title challenge following an unbeaten start to the season.

bet365, who are live streaming the match for UK-based customers with an active or funded account, offer the hosts at 2/1 (3.00), while Valencia can be backed at 13/10 (2.30) to win their fifth successive away match in La Liga and the draw is priced at 12/5 (3.40)

Having already put in some impressive performances in front of their own fans, Getafe will be ready to once more compete with one of the division's best sides and the hosts should at the very least be able to get on the scoresheet.

Geta have netted in their last five home league matches (including against both Barcelona and Real Madrid) while Valencia have conceded in all but one of their away games this season.

Both teams to score is offered at the understandable price of 8/13 (1.61), although more appealing is the price of 21/20 (2.05) for goals at both ends and over 2.5 strikes in the match.

This selection has proved profitable in four of Valencia's six games on the road this term, while also paying out in four of Getafe's last five league encounters at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
