Team News

Villarreal
Getafe
  • Defenders Eric Bailly and Juan Foyth will be assessed ahead of Friday's game but are still flagged as doubts and could miss out.
  • Santi Comesana and Francis Coquelin should start together in midfield. After much analysis, Marcelino seems to have found his favoured eleven.
  • Getafe scored three last week against Celta with a three in attack formation. Jaime Mata scored twice and won man of the match, he should have his spot reserved next to Borja Mayoral and Mason Greenwood.
  • Nemanja Maksimovic returned after three games absent and should keep his place in midfield against Villarreal.
  • Gaston Alvarez returns from suspension.

Prediction

  • Villarreal welcome Getafe to La Ceramica on Friday night in an aim to extend their unbeaten run to five games. Only three league places separate these two - indicative of the six-pointer nature of this match.
  • Defender and club captain Raul Albiol told the press this week that the team 'has found the way', suggesting to fans that the tumultuous period - seeing them go without two consecutive wins all season - could be behind Villarreal.
  • Getafe still look confident and dangerous despite the exit of Enes Unal for Bournemouth, expect both teams to score here.
