Betting Analysis

Looking at the 1×2 market first, where the favourite for this game Sevilla was a comfortable winner @ 1.83. Getafe began at @ 5.0 and although they never came anywhere near close to winning the match, a draw would not have been unjust.

Moving onto the Asian handicap market for this contest. Sevilla -0.75 got a half-win for their backers at 2.08. The home side did hold a 2-0 lead for a while and was heading to a full-goal win for their backers. However, Getafe did merit a goal sooner than it eventually came. The half loss for the Getafe backers was more than fair.  Getafe +0.75 punters lost half their stake which they would settle for having reality by two goals, though in reality, the team could easily have got a point

Looking at The Under/Over market last of all was set at 2 goals. As outlined in the preview the low line was always worth taking on by betting Over 2, and any followers of that suggestion would have won @ 1.88. Getafe is a defensively minded side but with them going behind in the first half, the match opened up notably as they chased the game. The under/over line was not wrong in its positioning pre kick off, but the game ended up going over due to Sevilla’s set-piece goals.


Match Summary

Thanks to two goals from set pieces in the first half, a fired-up Sevilla got a much needed win to hold off Getafe at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Extending their strong run against Getafe in head to head matches, Sevilla moved out of the La Liga relegation zone after recording this narrow and extremely nervous victory.

Lowly Sevilla began confidently, with plenty of possession inside the Getafe half. The host looked to make their pressure count before the half-hour mark, yet Joan Jordán and Ivan Rakitić both saw shots kept out from the busy Getafe keeper early on.

The hosts continued to show more ambiton as by contrast, Getafe remained in their shell happy to sit back. Sevilla deservedly broke the deadlock in the 36th minute when Marcos Acuña brilliantly headed home from Rakitić’s free-kick.

Getafe thought they had found an immediate leveller but Enes Ünal effort was deemed to be in an offside position by VAR.

The second half started in an open manner with Getafe taking risks to find a route back into the contest.

The visitors gradually started to look the stronger side and came within inches of finding an equaliser, Mayoral directed header just wide of the post.

Getafe continued to ask questions as Sevilla sat back and tried to kill the momentum. The away team were left to rue wasteful finishing from Mayoral and Ángel Algobia as soon as Sevilla doubled their advantage through substitute Rafa Mir.

The sub finished confidently on his head from Oliver Torres’ accurate delivery down the right side.

Getafe gave themselves a late lifeline as Majoral finally got his name on the scoresheet, a similar headed style goal to make it 2-1 beyond Bono.

Sevilla held on to secure their first league victory at home but overall, a draw may have been the more just result. Fair scores are 1-1 and 2-1.
