It could be a historic afternoon in the Spanish capital but we think the hosts will have to wait for goals in their final game of the campaign

Getafe have surpassed all expectations in La Liga this season and having already secured European football next term, Jose Bordalas' side are aiming to secure a top-four finish on the final weekend of the campaign.

Villarreal visit the Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Saturday and the hosts know they need to avoid defeat to keep alive their hopes of a place in next season's Champions League.

The side from the south of Madrid are level on points with fourth-placed Valencia so know that if Los Che win at Valldolid, Getafe will finish fifth.

Latest odds

The Coliseum Alfonso Perez has been a real fortress this season, with only Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid winning more home matches than Getafe.

Los Azulones are offered at 13/20 (1.65) with William Hill to record their 12th home win of the season, and will be confident considering they won 2-1 at Villarreal when the sides met back in January.

The side coached by Javi Calleja are priced at 17/4 (5.25) and Villarreal have won just two of their last 15 away games (although both those wins have come in the last month). The draw is available at 3/1 (4.00).

Team news

Getafe have no new injury concerns with long-term absentees Amath Ndiaye and Victorino Antunes missing for the capital club. Villarreal too have no new injury worries ahead of the final game of the season.

Preview

Saturday could be the greatest day in Getafe's history if the club manages to qualify for the Champions League, but to do so they will almost certainly have to win.

There could therefore be some nerves among Los Azulones' players, and Bordalas' side have not been overly prolific early on in matches this season.

Indeed, 30 of their 46 goals this season have come after the break while at home, only nine of their 26 goals have come before half-time.

Tips and predictions

Getafe to score under 0.5 goals in the first half is offered at evens (2.00) and this looks like a strong selection given the hosts' record. It looks even better when considering that only four teams have conceded fewer first-half goals away from home than Villarreal.

The Yellow Submarine have kept first half clean sheets in five of their last eight away games, and the statistics certainly point to a repeat this weekend.
