On Friday night, Las Palmas and Getafe go head-to-head at the Estadio de Gran Canaria in a midtable La Liga affair.Las Palmas form guide
The Islanders are experiencing a solid campaign in La Liga, as they are currently in 11th place in the table.
Despite being expected to struggle this season, Las Palmas are closer to the European spots than the relegation zone, seven points, as opposed to eight points clear of the league’s bottom three.
Garcia Pimienta’s team may be in a relatively lofty position in the table, but they have taken just a point from their last two games against Osasuna and Real Betis.
However, Las Palmas have a strong recent home record in La Liga, as they have won three of their previous four league games on home soil. Their recent La Liga games have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five goals in their last eight matches.Getafe form guide
The visitors are in eighth place in the table, six points adrift of the European spots in the Spanish top flight. Jose Bordalas’ team heads to the Canary Islands on the back of an eight-game unbeaten run in La Liga.
Last time out, Getafe recorded a 2-1 win over Almeria. The game was a rare high-scoring one for the visitors, as their previous four league matches had all produced under 2.5 goals.
The team from the Spanish capital heads into this encounter on the back of an eight-game winless run on their travels in the Spanish top flight. However, Getafe have drawn their last four La Liga games away from home.
Their recent away games in the Spanish top flight have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in seven of their previous 11 games.What am I backing?
I expect this game to be a relatively close game, with few goals, which is why the bet I am backing is under 2.5 goals scored.
