Getafe are in 19th place in the La Liga standings and are set to face a relegation battle this season. The Madrid-based outfit held Athletic Bilbao to a 0-0 stalemate last week and will want to take it up a notch in this game.
Deportivo Alaves, on the other hand, are in 17th place in the league table at the moment and will need to work hard to move up the standings. The Basques suffered a 2-1 defeat against Granada in their previous game and will need to bounce back in this fixture.
