From 8pm on Saturday, the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez stadium hosts an important matchday 26 Liga BBVA clash between Getafe CF and RCD Espanyol.
The Madrid side, which last won ten matches ago, will be trying to escape its rut against an opponent it has not beaten at home in its last seven attempts. "It is a vital match for turning things around. Last match we started to play a little better. Espanyol is a very hard-working and tough team with a lot of quality up front", said Getafe manager Luis García, who will be without the suspended Lisandro López and the injured Pedro Mosquera.
For their part, Espanyol, despite losing last Monday to Villarreal CF, travel to the south of Madrid with hopes of taking a step closing to the European spots. "We expect a difficult game against Getafe. Hopefully we can take advantage of their situation and they will make mistakes", highlighted Espanyol's assistant coach, Alfredo Tena. The Uruguayan Christian Stuani and the Mexican Héctor Moreno will miss the match for their accumulated yellows.
