Elche CF and Getafe CF go face-to-face at the Martínez Valero Stadium in one of the most intense clashes of matchday 32 of the Liga BBVA. With 32 and 31 points respectively, both teams will be seeing this game as a final.
After two consecutive draws (Athletic Club and Villarreal CF), Elche are looking for a good result against their direct challengers Getafe. They go into the match in good form, as Fran Escribá explained. “The team is going very well at a key time in the season”, he said. Escribá added that “the team is aware of what’s at stake and we’ll try to connect with the fans from the off”. Álvaro Giménez, Edu Albacar and Manu del Moral will miss the game through injury.
They will face a Getafe in a confident mood after their important victory against Valencia CF last week. The Madrid team, who will be without suspended Pedro Mosquera, will go to Elche hoping they can draw on what Cosmin Contra calls the “Mestalla spirit”. “I want the same attitude and sacrifice as in the Valencia match”, said the Rumanian manager.
