Getafe vs Ajax: Match preview and lineups
Much of football fans thought last season’s Getafe parties were a coincidence, but as things stand now, it seems they were fooled. Namely, the team from the outskirts of Madrid is playing fantastic this season. Without a doubt the best indicator for that is the current table. It shows us that this team is in third place in the table which brings the Champions League standings at the end of the championship, which Gezafe lost last season when they were overtaken by a Valencia team just before the end.
After a fantastic season in which Ajax reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and won the title of champion of the Netherlands, everyone expected that this team would easily reach the rankings among the sixteen best European teams. Unfortunately for all the fans it still was not the case.
Getafe team news:
It is quite right to say that Getafe is, like last season, the most pleasant surprise of the Spanish Primera. This epithet can be affixed to this club despite the defeat of a few days ago in the domestic championship against Barcelona.
With that defeat, Getafe’s four-match winning streak of four games ended.
But despite that lost encounter, Getafe made a great impression on Camp Nou and was a better team until the first goal. Getafe remained third in the standings and are now turning their attention to Europa League, where they play against strong Ajax, a squad that played in the Champions League semi-finals last season.
Getafe is a good and solid host. He has shown himself this way throughout the past, and is similar to this season in which he is 7-3-2 in Primera and receives less than goals per league duel. In the Europa League, those figures are even better as he has conceded just one goal in three duels.
Probable lineup: Chichizola, Suarez, Gonzalez, Dakonam, Olivera, Portillo, Fajr, Timor, Kenedy, Rodriguez, Mata.
Ajax team news:
Ajax played Champions League this season and the group that included Chelsea, Valencia and Lille was definitely not comfortable. However, Ajax was well-versed in it all the time and came to the moment to play the last game in his stadium and that he needed a draw too.
When Ajax was defeated by Valencia at that point of the season Ajax lost three games in a row without a goal scored. This is an incredible statistic for the Amsterdam club in recent years. In the last ten years, he has never lost 3 games in a row.
It is interesting to note that Ajax is extremely rarely sharing points this season. From the first day of September until today, he has played only two such matches. A home derby against PSV (1-1) and a legendary Champions League game this season at Chelsea (4-4).
Probable lineups: Onana, Mazraoui, Martinez, Blind, Tagliafico, Van den Beek, Alvarez, Tadić, Ziyech, Babel, Huntelaar.
This would be an open match. That is why we expect a lot goals. Not only that, but we also believe that both teams will score.
