La Liga returns this weekend with an intriguing clash as Villarreal, underperforming in 14th, travel to Getafe. Below we take a look at the betting angles for this match.

Getafe vs Villarreal Tips

  • Draw and over 2.5 goals at 10/1
  • 2-2 at 12/1

Draw and over 2.5 goals at 10/1

Getafe have been in reasonable form of late, but they have struggled to secure wins. Their last four results were: lost 2-1, won 3-2, lost 4-3 and drawn 2-2. Goals have been shipped at both ends which makes the 8/11 on BTTS Yes worth considering on this occasion. 

However, we can push the boat on for this particular game and look for a big-priced winner. Villarreal have scored in each of their La Liga matches so far and although they have come up short in several matches, have what it takes to go toe-to-toe with Getafe. Both of these sides are likely to finish mid-table and there isn’t much to choose between them on paper. 

If we expect both teams to score and it to be a draw at the end of the day, we can find some excellent value by taking the 1-1 out of the equation. I love the look of the draw and over 2.5 goals for this fixture, which would see any high scoring draw land. At 10/1, it’s a huge price for what should be a relatively open encounter. 

2-2 at 12/1

Using the logic seen above, we can also back a correct score. Although a 3-3 or 4-4 scoreline is an outside possibility and would return us a winner, the 2-2 seems the most obvious outcome. Given 1-1 is as short as 5/1, backing both teams to find the net twice delivers us the 12/1 price that we are happy to take on. 

Villarreal could do with keeping XI men on the pitch, having gone down to ten men in their past two away trips, but if they can do that, they should be able to damage a shaky Getafe defence. This mid-table encounter should produce fireworks.
