The 2020-21 edition of La Liga is back in action with another group of matches this weekend as Valencia take on Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Saturday. Both teams have been inconsistent this season and will need a victory in this fixture.
Getafe are in 15th place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have been well below their best over the past few months. The Madrid-based outfit suffered a 1-0 defeat to ten-man Real Betis last week and cannot afford to drop points in this fixture.
Valencia, on the other hand, have endured a particularly difficult campaign and find themselves in 12th place in the league table. Los Che eased past Celta Vigo in their previous game and will want to put in a similar performance on Saturday.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place in November last year and ended in a 2-2 draw. Both teams created several chances on the day and will want to edge their opponents to a victory on Saturday.
