Getafe vs Ajax Prediction and Betting Preview 20 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-0
Getafe vs Ajax PredictionBreathing heavy under Basel’s neck for majority of the Europa League group campaign, Getafe were made to settle for a place behind the Swiss giants – who finished tops of Group C. Just a single point shy of the group summit, Jose Bordalas’ men will feel deprived of that highly-coveted top spot.
Match status: 2019/20 Europa League - Play Offs - 1/16-finals
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe)
However, the home side can prepare a comprehensive list of things to boast of, despite losing first-place in Group C. They put on a good show throughout the tournament and really should have usurped Marcel Koller’s side to the summit of the standings.

Meanwhile, Ajax were sent crashing from Group H of the UEFA Champions League with Valencia and Chelsea beating them to the top-two spots. It was indeed a tight affair between these three sides and qualification really could have gone either way.

Now castaway to the disparaged Europa League, the Sons of the Gods will be required to put in a good shift in this fixture against Getafe to have any chances of advancing any further in the competition. Expect goals down both ends at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez Stadium.

Getafe vs Ajax Team News

Getafe had ended their group stage campaign with a terrific win at home, over Krasnodar. The score-line was 3-0, and all three goals had come in the span of ten minutes, late into the second half.

The onslaught that Getafe conducted on their visitors during the final stages of the game was really a sight to watch. It showed their fighting spirit, and the dedication to win, something that the Spanish top flight has been missing this season.

As of now, Getafe are placed third in the table, even above the likes of Atleti, Sevilla, Valencia, etc.

Keep note that Getafe had missed out on a CL ticket the last season, in the last match-day of the prior league campaign. They are adamant to not let anything of that sorts happen again.

Elsewhere, Ajax took a detour from their CL competition, after crashing out of the group stage on the final day. In a thrilling game at home, the team was beaten by another Spanish opposition – Valencia.

The score-line was a paltry 0-1, and it finally put an end to the dream run of Ajax in Europe’s premier competition. After their magnificent attempt for the treble in 2018-19, great things were expected from the Dutch side. This sense of hurt could really do some harm for Getafe this Thursday.

Getafe are a podium contender in arguably the best league in Europe, while their opposite number comes from the comparatively inferior Dutch league. On top of that, Getafe have the home advantage as well.

Going on, while Ajax are heavyweights in the Eredivisie, the lack of proper competition there could hurt them in European fixtures. It was really evident in the way they crumbled under pressure against Tottenham in the CL semis the last season, after having had the momentum.

As such, expect the hosts Getafe to avoid a loss at the least this Thursday. However, do give due respect to the awe-inspiring football Ajax have been playing the last two seasons. They have scored goals in plenty throughout these last two years and seems in no mood to stop.

Ajax: Quincy Promes, Joel Veltman, David Neres Campos, Perr Schuurs and Zakaria Labyad.
