Getafe came close to securing a top-four finish last season but ultimately fell just short, finishing two points behind Valencia in the final Champions League qualification spot.
The capital outfit are making another challenge for the top four this term, though, and currently sit just two points off Atletico Madrid after 29 matches of the 2019-20 campaign.
Real Sociedad will have the chance to reclaim fourth on Thursday night, but Getafe are very much in the race despite the fact that they have won just one of their last six league matches.
Bordalas's side have lost to Granada and drawn with Espanyol in their two games since returning to action on June 12, while they entered the lockdown period off the back of a goalless draw with Celta Vigo.
Eibar, meanwhile, have lost to Real Madrid and drew with Athletic Bilbao in their two matches since the season resumed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Jose Luis Mendilibar's side have finished 10th, ninth and 12th in their last three La Liga campaigns but are facing a battle to stay above the relegation zone this term.
Indeed, a total of 28 points from 29 matches has left them in 16th spot in the table, just three points clear of 18th-placed Mallorca on the same number of fixtures.
The omens are not exactly fantastic for Los Armeros ahead of this weekend's match, meanwhile, considering that they are winless in their last six games against Getafe in Spain's top flight.
Not since November 2015 have the Basque outfit overcome Getafe in La Liga, while they have the second-worst away record in Spain's top flight this season, picking up just eight points from their 14 matches.

As for Eibar, Ivan Ramis remains on the sidelines through injury, but the Basque outfit otherwise have a full squad ahead of this weekend's contest.
There are not expected to be many changes from the side that impressively held Athletic on Wednesday night, meaning that Pedro Leon and Kike should keep their spots in attacking areas.
Getafe possible starting lineup:
Soria; Suarez, Dakonam, Etxeita, Olivera; Nyom, Maksimovic, Arambarri, Cucurella; Mata, Molina
Eibar possible starting lineup:
Dmitrovic; Correa, Oliveira, Arbilla, Cote; Leon, Escalante, Edu, Orellana; Kike, Enrich
We say: Getafe 2-0 Eibar
Getafe are certainly due a victory, and it is difficult to back against the top-four hopefuls this weekend. Eibar have a lot of talented players, particularly in forward positions, but they have struggled on the road this season. In truth, we are expecting an extremely routine home victory for Bordalas's side.
