Looking at the 1×2 market first which could not split the two sides. The first half justified the closeness of the market pre kick-off but the longer the contest went on, the more the host Getafe dominated. Getafe stormed the second half and rewarded backers @ 2.85. The draw had been the favourite @ 2.75, a price which shortened in price after an extremely tight opening 45 minutes when the scores were tied at 0-0.
Moving onto the Asian handicap market for this contest where, with hindsight, Getafe was the way to go. The two clubs were barely split as the draw was offered as a saver on both teams. Getafe -0 @1.85 backers were winners and the slight favourite at kick off.
Finishing on the Under/ Over market where, as mentioned in the preview for this game, the value was with the Over 1.75 @ 1.98. That said, for 45 minutes the match did look unlikely to produce entertainment or goals. Getafe scored soon into the 2nd half and the match livened up, their 2nd goal ensured punters which hit the value got a half-win and the rest of their stake back.
An upbeat and effective Getafe got themselves a vital win over a disappointing Real Mallorca, who never got settled and ran out 2-0 losers at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez
The host improved the longer this even-looking contest went on and thanks to a highly impressive second-half display, brushed Real Mallorca aside with a fully deserved victory.
Mallorca never really got going but at least during the first half, they prevented Getafe from gathering momentum or generating serious opportunities. The host fancied their chances at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez and made that count with a high tempo and effective second 45 minutes.
Arriving into the match just three points above the drop zone, Getafe began better but never sustained their positive start. Real Mallorca meanwhile was cautious but competitive.
The visitors thought they had a penalty from nothing as the break approached, but VAR soon showed an attacker to be offside in the build-up to what was already a very soft handball.
After a drab and lacklustre opening half, Quique Flores’ men were superb once the game resumed. a brilliant bit of team play resulted in ex-Real Madrid striker Borja Mayoral drilling a low shot past the keeper for 1-0.
Getafe didn’t drop back or sit on the lead. Instead they maintained the intensity and deservedly grabbed a second goal in the 78th minute to seal their 2-0 win. Once more Mayoral was the hero but it came from a bad backpass as Mallorca crumbled. The goal added shine to their performance and the result, it was a reward for the fact the home side continued to press high and pressure Mallorca.
