Sevilla and Getafe will be action in La Liga for the first time in the new year when they face off at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday (January 8). The hosts have picked up six wins from the last six meetings between the two teams and will look to keep the juggernaut rolling.
Sevilla maintained their recent run of fine results on Wednesday, steamrolling Linares Deportivo 5-0 in the Round of 32 of the Copa del Rey. While they have put together a run of seven games without defeat across competitions, Jorge Sampaoli’s men return to La Liga, where they’re without a win in six outings.
After a horrid first half of the season, Sevilla sit 18th in the standings, one points off 17th-placed Espanyol outside the relegation zone. Meanwhile, Getafe were dumped out of the Copa del Rey with a 3-2 loss against Levante on Tuesday. The Azulones now return to La Liga, where they secured a 2-0 win against Mallorca in their last game of 2022 to snap a two-game winless run.
With 17 points from 15 games, Getafe are 14th in the league table but could rise to tenth with a win this weekend.
Sevilla have put together a fine run of form in recent weeks and will head into the weekend looking to pick up where they dropped off. Sampaoli’s men have enjoyed the better of this fixture in the last few years and should extend their dominance over an inconsistent Getafe side and steer clear of the relegation zone.
Prediction: Sevilla 2-0 Getafe
This match will start from 11:00 pm
This match will take place on 8 January, 2023
Sevilla will be missing Jose Angel Carmona through suspension due to his red card against Celta last time out, but the team will be boosted by the returns of Ivan Rakitic, Gonzalo Montiel and Tanguy Nianzou, who were all banned for the team’s last league fixture.
Alex Telles, Thomas Delaney, Marcao, Papu Gomez and Jesus Manuel Corona are all expected to again miss out through injury, while Karim Rekik remains a doubt.
Youssef En-Nesyri scored three times in the team’s Copa del Rey win over Linares Deportivo, and he will again lead the line in this match, while Erik Lamela could have played his way into the XI with his performance in the cup fixture last time out.
Getafe, meanwhile, are again expected to be without the services of Mauro Arambarri, but the team did not pick up any fresh problems in the Copa del Rey clash with Levante.
