On Sunday 29, Athletic Club will play Getafe CF at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez. For the Lions, the objective is clear: maintain the consistency which was missing at the beginning of the LaLiga Santander campaign.

Gaizka Garitano’s squad will travel to the south of Madrid in high spirits after last week’s 4-0 thrashing of Real Betis at San Mamés, a complete performance which put three important points on the table.

Currently sitting in eighth place in the LaLiga Santander table, Athletic will try to collect three more points in a stadium where they’ve managed favourable results over the last decade. In the last nine visits, the Lions have notched three wins, four draws and two defeats.

From the present-day squad, Iñaki Williams and Raúl García have scored a couple of goals against the Madrid-based outfit. Attacking-midfielder García was the last lion to score in Getafe’s backyard, grabbing Athletic’s goal in 1-1 draw during last year’s edition of this fixture.

The side managed by José Bordalás have 12 points, just like Athletic, with three wins, three draws and three losses. Getafe are 11th in the standings with eight goals for and nine against, compared to Athletic’s 11 to nine.
