Getafe vs Villarreal Prediction: La Liga Match on 16.04.2022

Villarreal will need to respond following a disappointing run of results, as their place in the Europa Conference League next season looks in danger. They will have a good opportunity to bounce back with a victory this weekend, as they travel to Getafe.


La Liga Preview

This season is petering out quicker than Villarreal fans would have been hoping for. There would have been a belief within the squad that a Champions League place could be attainable this season, but they have fallen well short in that goal, as they currently sit eleven points off Atletico.

It also looks incredibly unlikely that they will qualify for the Europa League, as they come into this fixture eight points adrift of Real Sociedad. Instead, they are clinging onto the Europa Conference League spot. However, they could be replaced in seventh this weekend if they fail to win for the fourth game running.

Villarreal has recorded just one win in their previous five, and have fallen to two defeats in their last three. They were at least able to avoid losing for the third game running in the league last weekend, as Alfonso Pedraza scored on the hour mark to save a point against Athletic Bilbao.

Getafe are located at the opposite end of the standings, as they come into this round of fixtures in La Liga currently 14th. They still aren’t safe from the threat of relegation though, as they are just four clear of Cadiz. Their recent form has been very short of wins, as they have recorded just a single victory in their previous five attempts.

Getafe were beaten for the 13th time in La Liga in their most recent fixture, as they suffered a 2-0 away loss against Real Madrid.

Getafe vs Villarreal Head to Head

Villarreal has been extremely dominant in recent fixtures against Getafe, as they have picked up victories in the previous five meetings. Each of their last two wins have been by a 1-0 scoreline. Getafe’s last win against their rivals this weekend came back in January 2019, as they won 1-0 away from home.

Getafe vs Villarreal Prediction

Time is running out for Villarreal to get back on track in La Liga, as their spot in seventh could be taken off them this weekend. However, the recent records suggest that this is a fixture that they have enjoyed in recent seasons, and I could see them picking up a third straight 1-0 win against Getafe.
