Valencia vs Getafe Match Preview
Getafe are enjoying a strong season and they are in good shape to make it even better by knocking Valencia out of the Copa del Rey.
The club from just outside Madrid lead this quarter-final tie 1-0 on aggregate after a goal from substitute Jorge Molina in the 77th minute of the opening leg.
Avoiding defeat at the Mestalla Stadium would be therefore good enough to send Getafe into the last four and dreaming of a third appearance in the final of the King’s Cup, emulating their achievements of 2007 and 2008 when they lost to Sevilla and Valencia respectively.
Sixth in La Liga table, Pepe Bordalas’ side are one place and two points ahead of Valencia who have improved their home form considerably with seven wins and two draws in their last nine matches at the Mestalla.
The ratio of recent victories suggests Los Che are capable of turning around this tie, but it should also be considered that Getafe have won four of their last six matches and their latest defeat to Atletico Madrid was their first away from home since the very first weekend of the season – at Real Madrid.
That ability to grind out results on their travels means the club nicknamed the Azulones should not be underestimated here and we will back them to avoid defeat and progress to the semi-finals.
