• Getafe suffered their heaviest ever home defeat in the Primera to date against Real Sociedad in January 2011 (0-4).
  • That 4-0 defeat remains the only home defeat suffered by the Blues against the Basque side, with Getafe winning all of the other five.

  • Luis Garcia has only suffered one defeat in seven meetings with the Blanquiazules as a La Liga manager (W3 D3), though that came in this season’s return fixture.
  • Getafe have lost four successive league games; they have never lost five in a row in a single top-flight campaign.
  • Real Sociedad said goodbye to a run of five successive victories last week as they lost 5-1 for the fourth time since returning to the top-flight.
  • Getafe and Real Sociedad substitutes have each scored just one goal this term; a joint-low together with Almeria.
  • Carlos Vela has participated in three of Real Sociedad’s last four away league goals (two goals, one assist).
