Getafe to Push Deportivo Closer to Segunda Division

February 26, 2018

Getafe are set to put another nail in Deportivo's coffin in midweek.

Relegation-threatened Deportivo defeated Getafe in September but punters are getting the right price about the Dark Blues turning the tables on Super Depor in the reverse fixture.

The Spanish Primera Division head to head between Deportivo and Getafe is almost the other thing going for Super Depor going into Wednesday’s game in the 26th round of matches. Deportivo, which was a participant in UEFA events not that many seasons ago, is 19th on the Spanish Primera Division ladder with four teams – Levante, Las Palmas, Malaga and Super Depor – appearing to be fighting over one berth among next term’s elite. Deportivo is 0-3-7 in its last 10 Spanish Primera Division games, Super Depor have yet to beat a team ranked in the top nine and one’s collateral form analysis indicates that they are vastly inferior to Getafe in spite of the result of their September clash.

According to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Getafe enjoys a 14-2-3 lead over Deportivo, including the Dark Blues boasting a progressive advantage of 6-1-0 over Super Depor when just the results of matches featuring top-seven sides count. Moreover, Deportivo’s treatment room is more crowded than those most of its Spanish Primera Division rivals so everything is conspiring against Super Depor. Back Getafe at odds of 1.92  with Jetbull.

Villarreal must win at Eibar to stay in the hunt for one of the Spanish Primera Division’s four UEFA Champions League spots and the Yellow Submarine are fairly priced at 3.3  with 888Sport to defeat the Gunners for the second time this season. Villarreal’s Spanish Primera Division road results against the league’s top sides have been excellent – it has drawn at Atletico Madrid and won at Real Madrid, Valencia, Celta, and Girona – so the Yellow Submarine will have positive thoughts away to Eibar on Wednesday.

Former Villarreal striker Cedric Bakambu scored a hat-trick in the Yellow Submarine’s 3-0 Spanish Primera Division home victory over Eibar in September and, while the Democratic Republic of Congo forward is in limbo as he tries to engineer a transfer to Chinese Super League team Beijing Guoan, his former side have accrued 20 points from their last 10 Spanish Primera Division games to occupy the fifth rung on the ladder. According to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Villarreal holds an 11-1-7 edge over Eibar, including progressive leads of 5-0-0 and 6-0-1. In simple terms, the results of Spanish Primera Division matches involving good teams demonstrate that Villarreal is significantly stronger than Eibar, with the Gunners being 2-0-8 versus higher ranked opponents and losing seven of those 10 games by multiple-goal margins.

Atletico Madrid looks like a Spanish Primera Division home banker against suspension-hit Leganes on Wednesday but, in the quest for excellent betting value, one is going to pick Tuesday’s match between Girona and Celta to end all square at odds of 3.4  with BetVictor. Girona and Celta shared six goals equally when they met in Vigo earlier this Spanish Primera Division term, only one point separates the sides on the ladder and one’s collateral form analysis cannot split them with a 8-3-8 dead heat.

Below are one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form numbers for the full midweek round of 10 games.

Espanyol 3-3-13
Girona 8-3-8
Malaga 4-6-9
Getafe 14-2-3
Athletic 5-1-13
Eibar 7-1-11
Atletico Madrid 14-2-3
Betis 7-3-9
Las Palmas 0-1-18
Alaves 6-6-7
