Poor form has made Valencia quite struggling last season, but Getafe has an even worse record than the Bats. Therefore, having the home field advantage in the first round will be a great advantage to help coach Pepe Bordalás’ team open up the opportunity to win when Getafe is playing deadlocked away.
It is easy to see that Valencia lost themselves last season when they could not compete for a place in the European Cup this season. With the quality of the squad decreasing, the goal of competing for the top 6 position in the new season also becomes quite far away for the Bats in the new season. However, Getafe is not too difficult a opponent for Valencia in the first round.
Valencia’s head-to-head record is clearly not good against Getafe, in the last 10 encounters they have only won 2 victories. But it is not difficult to realize that Mestalla Stadium will be a great fulcrum for the Bats when they are still maintaining a series of 4 unbeaten matches when receiving the nearest Getafe, so the victory of coach Pepe Bordalás’s and students’s team. still very bright.
