Villarreal vs Getafe
A massive three points are at stake for a Villarreal side that were relegated as recently as 2012. They currently sit in the relegation zone having won just one of their last 12 La Liga (LL) matches (W1, D6, L5), managing only one clean sheet during that span.
The hosts are nevertheless five competitive games unbeaten under Luis García (W1, D4) after grinding out a 2-2 stalemate at home to Espanyol in the Copa del Rey last 16 on Wednesday. Consequently, Villarreal have now drawn four matches in a row, with three of those games ending 2-2, indicating that they are not far off a winning run.
Encouragingly for them, Villarreal have won their past four home meetings against Getafe, with the latter drawing a blank in each of the last three. However, Getafe find themselves in seventh going into matchday 19, and they head to the Estadio de la Cerámica with spirits high after a dramatic 1-0 victory over Valladolid in the Copa Del Rey.
Despite having failed to keep a clean sheet in their previous seven LL trips – and registering a 1-1 draw in six of those matches – Getafe boast the second-fewest goals conceded (15). They are now unbeaten in their last eight away league games (W2, D6) and remain within striking distance of the top six.
Players to watch: Ex-Leicester City midfielder Vicente Iborra is set to make his LL debut for Villarreal. For the visitors, Jaime Mata has twice rescued a point away from home this season.
