Total crisis in Getafe

The team has lost four in a row and has not scored in the entire month of February. Bordalás does not give the key with the scheme. Kubo and Aleñá, absent.


Something happens with Getafe. The team is adrift, the results do not arrive, the classification does not help and, to top it off, off the pitch all the noise that arrives is negative. A new defeat against Betis puts in check a project that seemed to be heading towards Europe, but could end up in the Second Division if the situation is not reversed. The data speaks for itself. They have lost five of the last six games. The other was tied against the one who is already a direct rival for maintaining the category: Alavés.

It could be casual or undeserved, but it is not the case. Getafe accumulates 539 minutes without scoring a single goal. Nor does it generate chances. Has a shot on goal in the last four games. The great strength of the team in recent years has also lost strength: defense. Today, two absurd penalties committed by Chakla have deprived his team of getting a valuable point at Benito Villamarín.

The signings are another unknown. Aleñá and Kubo came as offensive revolutionaries. After weeks of entries and exits, they seem committed to the substitution. Bordalás changed the scheme to a 4-2-3-1 for them and had faith in them, but the defeats have condemned them. Against Betis, both substitutes. Chakla, another of the arrivals in the winter market, came to improve the unstable defense due to injuries and irregularity. Far from being strong behind, he has made big mistakes.

Until 2021, Bordalás had no doubts. The 4-4-2 was immovable. Always a band was Cucurella and the center was occupied, except by injury or unforeseen, Arambarri and Maksimovic. Depending on the match, the other side was for Nyom or he would put another forward to reinforce his offensive potential. After trying the 4-2-3-1 without much success, the coach has found a new variable: the 5-4-1 in order to alleviate the weakness in the rear. The Cabaco-Chakla-Djené trio did not work either, although the attack is the main concern.

Team problems

Bordalás has already confirmed at a press conference that the team left with fear against Real Madrid, after Djené injured Lucas Ocampos in the tense duel of Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán. In addition, he revealed that the center-back was very affected by all the criticism he was receiving for the action and expressed his dissatisfaction because the club had not come out in defense of either the player or the team.

Before the Royal Society, Bordalás himself had a scuffle with Carlos Fernández, which led to his expulsion. This Getafe, which for years has proven to face adversity with victories and courage, is already the worst in its history in the First Division, a year after being the best. It falls again and its moment is critical. At the moment, they are still out of relegation, but they only have a three-point margin for Valladolid.
