Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Getafe will be looking to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Granada when they take on Espanyol on Tuesday evening. Los Azulones welcome trio Maksimovic-Mata-Arambarri back to the squad as they served their bans at the weekend, and it is no wonder the capital club are seen as favourites to win the midweek fixture. Getafe are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and even though the game will be played behind closed doors, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Champions League-chasing side.
Los Periquitos did well to beat ten-man Alaves 2-0 at home ground, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against los Azulones. Espanyol goalkeeper Diego Lopez returns to the starting line-up after serving his ban against Alaves. In their last meeting in the suburbs of Madrid Getafe crushed Espanyol 3-0, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
