The Getafe and the Real society, bottom and second classified, respectively, will play a duel marked by the judgment that the coach of the azulón team will experience, Joseph Miguel Gonzalez “Míchel”, who could leave office if he loses his eighth consecutive game, while the visitors arrive with the good news of the recovery of their goalscorer Alex Isak.
Michel monopolizes almost all the focus of the meeting, marked by the bad moment of Getafe. The azulón team never started a season so bad. Up to seven defeats in a row with twelve goals against and only two in favor have placed in a critical situation a team that until not long ago walked its name around Europe.
His last game, against Betis (2-0) at the Benito Villamarín stadium, did not leave a good feeling. Unlike in other defeats -Atlético de Madrid (1-2), Sevilla (0-1), Barcelona (2-1) or Valencia (1-0), the clash against the Verdiblancos showed the worst side of Getafe, unable to generate football and chances and with little defensive strength.
That defeat was similar to others such as those suffered against Elche (0-1) or Rayo Vallecano (3-0), in which Getafe showed the shortcomings of a group in need of morale and with a lot of pressure to get results. Michel he hopes that his players will get their best version to show that he is right in one of the sentences he left after losing at Benito Villamarín: “We are not bad enough to have seven defeats,” he said.
For now Michel has enjoyed the patience of its president, Angel towers, who endures the pull and trusts his coach. At least until this Sunday. Later, it could be another story. And, meanwhile, the Getafe coach will have to face his “final judgment” with some important loss.
Almost certainly, you will not be Victor Machin “Vitolo”. The canary has not yet fully recovered from muscle discomfort. The Czech will not be able to play either Jakub Jankto, with a severe ankle sprain and Sabit Abdulai, goes down until February due to a torn ligament.
Nevertheless, Michel could recover two troops, the Uruguayans Erick Tobacco and Mauro Arambarri, which, except for surprise, will start the duel from the bench. The rest of the squad will be available to try to beat Real Sociedad.
Real Sociedad recovers for the match against Getafe its Swedish scorer, Alex Isak, after two weeks of injury, with the aim of confirming, in the day before the October break, the Champions League positions that he currently occupies or even access to the leadership.
The Gipuzkoan team has begun to overcome the scourge of the injuries of several basic players, since up to ten of its players coincided with the loss, and it has done so with an outstanding in LaLiga, in which it has been installed second classified and with a note lower but with approval in Europe, where it remains undefeated although it is true that also without winning.
Imanol Sheriff already recovered to its extreme Ander Barrenetxea for the European match against Monaco and with the return of Isak It already has many variants in attack.
The Basque team is solvent away from home, they have only lost to Barcelona and dominated with authority their duels against Cádiz and Granada, and now they will try to confirm that firmness as a visitor against Getafe that almost always gives them problems. The last six games between the two teams have been divided between three Madrid victories and as many from San Sebastian.
European attrition may provide the alternative, within the wide range of resources and strength of Sheriff, to players like Gorosabel, You Normand or Barrenetxea in the starting team at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.
