The upcoming La Liga clash between Alaves and Getafe on Saturday promises an intriguing battle between two midtable sides.

Alaves, currently in 11th place, will host 10th-placed Getafe at the Estadio de Mendizorroza. Both teams are eager to finish the season on a high note, making this match a crucial encounter for both sides.

Form and Recent Performance

Alaves

Alaves have had a mixed season since their promotion from the second tier, accumulating 42 points from 36 matches.

Their recent form, however, has been shaky, with a 5-0 defeat to Real Madrid marking their fourth loss in five away games.

Nonetheless, Alaves have been solid at home, losing just one of their last seven matches at Mendizorroza.

Getafe

Getafe, on the other hand, have faced a tough spell, losing their last three matches without scoring.

Their latest 3-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid, powered by an Antoine Griezmann hat-trick, has left them in a precarious position.

Despite their struggles, Getafe remain in 10th place with 43 points and aim to secure their first top-half finish since 2019.

Team News and Lineups

Alaves

Alaves will likely field a strengthened lineup after rotating players in their midweek match.

Key players such as Nahuel Tenaglia, Javi Lopez, Carlos Vicente, Jon Guridi, Carlos Benavidez, Giuliano Simeone, and Kike Garcia are expected to return to the starting eleven.

Goalkeeper Jesus Owono, who has started the last two matches, should retain his place.

Getafe

Getafe are dealing with several injuries, including top scorer Borja Mayoral and Mauro Arambarri, both sidelined with knee issues.

Domingos Duarte and Juan Iglesias are also out with shoulder injuries. Despite these setbacks, Djene is fit to return and will likely feature in central defence alongside Omar Alderete.

Coach Jose Bordalas might introduce changes, with Yellu Santiago, Jaime Mata, and Juanmi Latasa all contenders to start.

Prediction

Considering the recent form of both teams, this match is expected to be tightly contested.

Historically, six of their last seven encounters have ended in draws. Given their current standings and performance, a 1-1 draw seems a likely outcome for this weekend's fixture.
