Getafe – Almeria
Getafe meets Almeria in a game from the 41st round of the Spanish Segunda Division.
This game is important for both teams, as they are still chasing their goals in the final two rounds of the season. Getafe continues their quest to return to La Liga, while Almeria has still not guaranteed their survival in the Segunda.
Right now Getafe are 3rd in the current standings, having 64 points won so far. This is five points less than the 2nd Girona and one more than the 4th Tenerife. Even if we accept that it will be difficult for Getafe to beat Girona for the 2nd place and qualify directly for La Liga, they still have to make sure that they will at least participate in the playoffs.
As for Almeria, they are currently four points above Alcorcon and the relegation zone in Segunda Division. They need a win to guarantee their survival in the second tier of Spanish football. In the final two games of the season, Almeria is playing against Getafe and Reus Deportiu. Can they achieve their goal and remain in the league?
