Friday Football Tips: Get on Getafe for cards in Cadiz

Getafe can see plenty of cards again against Cadiz

Paul Higham is banking on plenty of Getafe card when they visit Cadiz for a relegation showdown in La Liga on Friday night...

  • Only four Cadiz home games have had over 2.5 goals

  • Getafe had 11 cards in last two trips to Cadiz

  • Back 11/2 Bet Builder for La Liga relegation scrap

We've got an intriguing relegation battle to kick-off this week's La Liga action on Friday night with Cadiz hosting Getafe.

Just a point separates the two sides in what is a congested relegation scrap where as many as eight teams are fighting to avoid finishing in the two remaining spots in the drop zone, with Elche seemingly dead and buried.

Even 10th-placed Mallorca are only six points above the relegation zone, and there's so much traffic around that a bad run of games could easily see a side tumble donwards dangerously.

Both Cadiz and Getafe have picked up a couple of wins recently to keep their heads above water, but a victory here would be huge for the winner but a dagger for the loser.

That jeopardy also brings our old friend the half-time draw into play.

Cadiz in hot form at home

Cadiz have won three on the spin at home and are unbeaten in nine so are rightly favourites at 31/20 against a Getafe side with just two away wins all season - one of those coming against bottom side Elche.

Getafe have lost four of their last five away from home but they did draw at Atletico Madrid and only lost 1-0 at Barcelona so they have been competitive - and you couldn't rule out a draw here at 9/5.

Back under 2.5 Goals & HT draw in Cadiz v Getafe & over 4.5 Getafe cards


Goal may be hard to come by here given not only the situation but the teams involved - Cadiz have kep three straight clean sheets at home and have had just four of 12 home contests go over 2.5 goals.

These two also occupy the bottom two spots in La Liga for possession and shots on target - so it's not exactly a winning formula for a goalfest.

Where they both do rank highly though is in the card count, and this has the potential to go nuclear in terms of cards being dished out especially to the away side.

Getafe have had 11 cards in total from their last two trips to Cadiz, and even in the reverse fixture this season they had six yellows and a red an an ill-tempered clash, so expect some carry over from that.

I think Getafe can get over 4.5 cards here in reasonable comfort at 2/1.
