Getafe and Elche, direct rivals for permanence and separated in the standings by only four points, they face an important game for which the Madrid team arrives depleted of troops and the Elche team with doubts due to the poor performance it is showing as a visitor.
The Madrid team has described this match as “final” and for so important appointment José Bordalás will not be able to count with two of his most important men in the squad, the Uruguayan Damián Suárez and the French-Cameroonian Allan Nyom.
These absences they will force Bordalás to look for an alternative for the right wing. The two clearest options for the Alicante coach are to transfer to the Togolese center-back Let me to the right-handed side or to bet on the youth squad Juan Iglesias, who this season has already played four games although he has not participated with the first team since January 20.
To the margin of those two casualties, Bordalás neither can count on the Uruguayan central Erick Cabaco, who this week underwent surgery for a tear in the internal meniscus of his right knee and will not be able to play for about two months.
In attack, the offensive potential of the Getafe. Jaime Mata will serve his second penalty game and the colombian ‘Cucho’ Hernández, injured, has said goodbye to the season. In this way, the attacking references are Ángel Rodríguez and the Turkish Enes Unal, who has not yet scored in the league in the 19 games played.
In this way, and in the face of such low, the Japanese Take kubo He could return to a title he has not enjoyed since February 6 against Sevilla.
Elche, on the other hand, is obliged to add in his visit to Getafe to stay out of the descent after two consecutive days, played at home, in which he has not managed to score.
The team from Elche, improved in image and points from the arrival on the bench Fran Escribá, you also need to pass your pending subject as a visitoras they have lost in their last six away games and haven’t won away for five months.
Elche did not have much time to prepare for the game against Getafe, since this Wednesday they played the postponed match in Seville, where they fell (2-0) and wasted the opportunity to increase their income on the relegation zone.
The Valencian coach has left side Alberto Barragán, injured last week, while Juan Francisco Martínez ‘Nino’ and Emiliano Rigoni, casualties in Seville due to physical problems, they are doubtful.
Escribá does not contemplate making rotations, since he sees the team in a good state, so it is possible that he will give continuity to the Colombian Helibelton Palacios on the right wing.
The coach of the Elche team foresees a physical match, so the presence of the Congolese midfielder Nuke Mfulu by Raúl Guti It could be one of the novelties in the line-up to surprise a Getafe that won in Elche in the first round.
