Getafe welcomes Ajax at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez in a match from the 1/16-finals of the Europa League
Getafe welcomes Ajax at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez in a match from the 1/16-finals of the Europa League. This is first leg between these two teams. Let’s preview it with our Europa League predictions.
Although they lost two of their matches in Group C, Getafe finished second and progressed towards the knockout phase of Europa League. Jose Bordalas’ team left Krasnodar and Trabzonspor behind, being bettered only by Basel who won the group. The Swiss team is the only one who managed to beat Getafe in this group.
Getafe are performing in a great way under the management of Bordalas. For a second consecutive season this small club is a Champions League contender in La Liga, currently being third in the standings. This all due to the work of the manager and his boys, because the club is not having enough budget to sign world class players.
For Getafe this game comes few days after the team’s 1-2 loss against Barcelona at the Camp Nou. Angel scored for the visitors in the second half, but Barca managed to keep their advantage until the end.
For Ajax this tie comes after a dissapointing performance in the Champions League. The Dutch side had a good chance to qualify for the 1/8-finals of the competition, but their home defeat against Valencia in the last game sent them to Europa League.
Now Ajax have another chance to prove that they are a very capable team in Europe under the management of Erik ten Hag. The legendary Dutch club is currently leading the standings in the Eredivisie, having 6 points advantage in front of the second AZ. During the weekend Ajax hosted RKC Waalwijk and celebrated a dominant 3-0 win.
That’s our Europa League predictions for the match between Getafe and Ajax from the 1/16-finals of the competition. Which one of these two teams will take an advantage here? It looks really unpredictable.
