Getafe will be looking to extend an unbeaten run in their La Liga H2Hs with Deportivo Alaves to four (W1, D3) when the two teams meet at the Estadio Mendizorrotza this weekend.
It’s been a dismal start to the new league season for Alaves so far, as they’ve lost both of their opening La Liga fixtures. Curiously, both of those defeats yielded a single-goal margin, with the winner in each arriving no earlier than the 79-minute mark. A 2-1 away defeat to Granada last time out now means the ‘Babazorros’ have netted under 1.5 goals in ten of their previous 11 La Liga outings, 2019/20 included, scoring a miserly average of 0.36 goals per game during that sequence. Indeed, a genuine lack of firepower up front saw Pablo Machin’s men finish the last season with the division’s fourth-worst scoring ratio of 0.89 goals scored per La Liga match.
Meanwhile, in a true ‘Getafe style,’ the visitors secured a narrow 1-0 home win over Osasuna in their first league game this term. In fact, José Bordalás’ men registered a clear majority (71.43%) of their La Liga triumphs last season without conceding a goal (10/14). Moreover, Getafe often tend to win tight when away from home, as 66.67% of their top-flight victories on the road back in 2019/20 came via a single-goal margin (4/6). But, getting on the scoresheet could be quite daunting for the ‘Azulones’ here, considering they’ve drawn a blank in three of their previous four competitive trips to Alaves while scoring only once in the remaining one.
