Getafe play host to Rayo Vallecano on Sunday
Los Franjirrojos will be looking to complete a league double over the hosts, having cruised to a 3-0 victory in September’s reverse fixture.
Getafe failed to pick up successive wins for the first time since January as they were held to a goalless draw by Real Betis last Monday.
This followed a 2-0 victory at Celta Vigo on April 20 which saw their two-game losing streak come to an end.
With four games to go before the 2021-22 campaign draws to a close, Getafe are currently just five points above the relegation zone as they sit 15th in the La Liga table after picking up 36 points from 34 games.
Elsewhere, Rayo Vallecano were denied a third win on the trot last time out as they could only salvage a 1-1 draw against Real Sociedad.
They are now unbeaten in all but one of their last six outings — claiming two wins and three draws — with a 1-0 loss at Alaves on April 16 being the only exception.
With 41 points from 34 games, Rayo Vallecano are currently 11th in the league standings, two points off Valencia in the top half of the table.
