Preview: Levante-Getafe

Levante and Getafe both need the points when they kick off Week 9 of La Liga on Saturday.

Levante boss Juan Muniz on expecting a close encounter: “It’s likely to be a tight match.

“Anything can happen, these games are always forecasted to be close. We’re both in need of points and rediscovering ourselves with a win. That would be good.”

Getafe boss Jose Bordalas on the need to bounce back: “I’d be concerned if the team weren’t scoring goals.

“We have a goal difference that’s more or less normal for our situation, but it’s necessary that goals are spread throughout the team.

“Goals from our strikers will come and everything will stabilise itself.”
