Villarreal are looking for a win to confirm the improvement shown in recent league games

Villarreal CF have found their way. And now it’s time to stay on course. The Yellows will be looking to achieve this with a win against Getafe CF at the Estadio de la Cerámica (Friday, 9pm CET). The Submarine’s improvement has been evident in recent league games. In the last month of competition, the Yellows have picked up a total of three draws and a prestigious win away to FC Barcelona (3-5).

In full growth, Marcelino’s side will be looking to take advantage of the positive momentum and get the win on the same stage where they already deserved more against Mallorca (1-1) and Cádiz (0-0). Getafe will not make it easy. The team coached by Bordalás is a gritty side, with the ability to compete in any setting. Although they are stronger at home, Los Azulones have scored at prestigious grounds such as those of Athletic Club, RC Celta, Atlético de Madrid, Real Betis and Sevilla FC.

Borja Mayoral is excelling as a goalscorer for Getafe. The striker from Madrid is the second top scorer in the championship. With 15 goals in 24 games, he is one of the great revelations of the season in LALIGA EA Sports. Almost 47% of the goals scored by Getafe in the domestic championship have been scored by the Spanish striker.

At the Submarine, the goalscoring responsibility has been shared throughout the season, to a greater extent, between Gerard, Sorloth and Morales, who have scored 24 of the 34 goals in LALIGA (42%).

Getafe are tenth with 33 points, while Villarreal are 13th with 25 points.
