Preview: Getafe vs. Celta Vigo - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Monday's La Liga clash between Getafe and Celta Vigo, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Getafe's search for their first victory of the 2021-22 La Liga campaign will continue on Monday evening when they welcome Celta Vigo to Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

The home side are currently bottom of the table, having picked up just two points from their opening nine matches, while Celta occupy 15th spot with seven points to show from their first nine games.

Getafe finished eighth, fifth and eighth in La Liga between 2017 and 2020 before posting 15th last term, and it does appear that the team will face a battle against relegation during the 2021-22 campaign.

Indeed, a record of two draws and seven losses from nine matches has seen them collect just two points, leaving them bottom of the table, and they are one of only two sides - the other being Levante - yet to record a victory in Spain's top flight this season.

Getafe lost their opening seven matches of the campaign against Valencia, Sevilla, Barcelona, Elche, Rayo Vallecano, Atletico Madrid and Real Betis before drawing with Real Sociedad and Levante in their last two.

Now under the management of Quique Sanchez Flores, the Deep Blue Ones have a busy end to October, taking on Celta, Granada and Espanyol before opening November with a trip to Villarreal.

Getafe have only lost one of their last eight league games against Celta, but two of the last three meetings between the two sides have finished level.

Celta, meanwhile, will enter the contest off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Sevilla last weekend, with Rafa Mir's second-half effort proving to be the difference between the two sides in Vigo.

The Sky Blues, who finished 15th in La Liga last term, have won two, drawn one and lost six of their opening nine matches of the 2021-22 campaign to collect seven points, which has left them in 15th.

Eduardo Coudet's side ended September with back-to-back wins over Levante and Granada but have lost their two October fixtures against Elche and Sevilla without scoring a goal.

Celta will now face Getafe, Real Sociedad and Rayo Vallecano before welcoming Barcelona on November 6, and the team will be eyeing a second successive win over Getafe, having recorded a 1-0 victory when the two sides last locked horns in May.

Coudet's team have only found the back of the net on seven occasions in the league this term, though, and four of those have come from their two strikers Iago Aspas and Santi Mina.

Team News

Getafe will be without the services of Jakub Jankto and Sabit Abdulai for Monday's clash through injury, while Erick Cabaco, Vitolo and Jaime Mata are all doubts.

Head coach Flores will have been pleased with certain aspects of his team's performance against Levante last time out, so it would not be a surprise to see the same XI sent onto the field.

Enes Unal is perhaps the player pushing hardest to break into the side, but Sandro Ramirez could again get the nod through the middle in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

As for Celta, Renato Tapia and Jose Fontan will be unavailable for selection through injury, but the visitors are otherwise in good shape approaching Monday's encounter.

There are not expected to be any surprises in the away side's starting XI, with Mina and Aspas operating as the front two, and Nolito, Brais Mendez and Denis Suarez lining up in a deeper area.

Tapia's absence means that Fran Beltran will feature as the holding midfielder, while Hugo Mallo and Javier Galan are expected to continue in the full-back areas.

Getafe possible starting lineup:
Soria; Suarez, Dakonam, Cuenca, Olivera; Florentino, Timor; Arambarri, Maksimovic, Alena; Sandro

Celta Vigo possible starting lineup:
Dituro; Mallo, Murillo, Araujo, Galan; Beltran; Mendez, Suarez, Nolito; Aspas, Mina


SM words green background

We say: Getafe 1-1 Celta Vigo

This match has a draw written all over it; there is not an awful lot between the two sides in terms of quality, and Getafe have shared the points in their last two encounters. It would not be a surprise to see a home or an away victory, but we have had to settle on a draw taking everything into consideration.
