Update: The game has been canceled! Inter Milan even announced the withdrawal of the team from all competitions because they had been in contact with the infected Rugani from Juventus at the weekend.
Inter Milan vs Getafe Soccer Betting Predictions
It is probably the top game in the round of 16 of the Europa League, even if it may not sound like it at first glance: Inter Milan against Getafe. The third in the Italian league meets the fourth in the Spanish league – two top teams, each playing a really strong season in their country.
On the way to the round of 16, Inter eliminated Ludogorets Razgrad from Bulgaria in the intermediate round fairly effortlessly (2: 0, 2: 1), while Getafe caused quite a coup, because the small team from the Madrid suburb threw Ajax Amsterdam, the previous year’s semi-finalists the Champions League, from the competition (2: 0, 1: 2).
Two strong teams are dueling in the round of 16 – so the game should take place at all. Because the corona virus crisis not only keeps the whole of Italy and thus all Serie A teams in suspense, it has also reached all of Europe.
Games on Italian soil have all been postponed, games with Italian participation take place in camera. Milan is also the epicenter of the corona virus – but the game is scheduled to take place on Wednesday afternoon.
However, Getafe vehemently opposes this, because the Spanish club does not want to compete – the health risk is too great. “We asked UEFA to find an alternative to hosting it in Milan,” Getafe’s President told Spanish radio on Tuesday evening: “We don’t want to travel to the epicenter of the corona virus. If the situation does not change significantly, Getafe will not travel to Italy, “said the club president, who even wants to accept a defeat at the green table:” If we should lose the game, we will lose it. I will not be the one who takes a risk. ”
However, a decision by UEFA is still pending, which is why the game will also take place according to the current status – therefore it is possible to predict the game between Inter Milan and Getafe.
Inter Milan – Statistics & current form
If the game takes place as planned, a very close affair awaits us – because both teams are incredibly difficult to beat and play a strong season. Inter even has hopes for the championship, even if they have suffered a severe blow recently.
Two bitter bankruptcies against the master competition
The Nerazzurri suffered a bitter 0-2 defeat at rival Juventus Turin last weekend. It was the second bankruptcy in the second key duel for the Scudetto in a row, the weekend before Inter lost to Lazio Rome 1-2.
The three-way battle for the title in Serie A has become a duel between Lazio and Juve due to these two defeats, Inter dropped back to third place, eight points behind Inter and nine on Juve – but still a catch-up game in hand.
In front of these two bankruptcies against their direct competitors, Inter presented themselves in dazzling shape, as the Lombards remained undefeated for 16 league games in a row. Inter is particularly powerful in the Giuseppe Meazza stadium at home. Here Inter has only suffered one defeat in the league so far (just against Juventus).
Inter against Getafe a duel at eye level
Despite the two dampers recently, the Nerazzurri are slightly favored in the Europa League duel, at Inter Milan vs. Getafe speak the odds for the Italians, at least in the first leg. If we take a look at the betting odds for the type of bet “Who gets ahead”, we see: The status of favorites varies greatly depending on the betting provider – many assume a duel at eye level.
So while Inter is struggling to get ahead in the Europa League, no streak can be made good in Serie A. For the time being, the battle for the championship title is suspended, Italy has officially canceled all sporting events due to the Coronavirus crisis until April 3, so Serie A is also paused.

Getafe – Statistics & current form
Getafe will be a real chunk for Inter Milan, there is hardly a more uncomfortable team to play against.
Most recently, there was a song about this in the intermediate round of the Europa League Ajax Amsterdam: The top Dutch team bit their teeth in the second and third leg of the club from the Madrid suburb, could hardly record any goals at all – and was ultimately surprisingly thrown out of the competition.
Ajax was already biting teeth at Getafe
The reason for this is the good organization as well as the running and tackling strength of the Spaniards. Hardly any team works so well as a unit, is so difficult to crack. Bordala’s team usually operates in the same system, the flat 4-4-2. Two defense bars form against the ball in front of the penalty area, whereby the players always remain active and bite the opponent who bites the ball. Bordalas already likes to practice a toxic man orientation in the middle of the field.
Getafe is not even particularly low on the defensive, the team simply works against the ball at all times, defending together as a team according to a clear plan.
Strong defensive alliance
The numbers also make this clear: Getafe have conceded no goals in six of the last eight games, and coach Pepe Bordalas’ team has won five of these six games.
In the away table La Ligas Getafe ranks third – has conceded only twelve goals in 13 appearances.
A tough game with little chance of scoring can be expected, according to the taste of Getafes, which allow incredibly few chances to score.
Probable lineup of Getafe:
➲ Soria – Suarez, Etxeita, Djene, Olivera – Nyom, Arambarri, Maksimovic, Cucurella – Deyverson, Mata
