Match Preview: Getafe (N)

11 July 2022

Preston North End will take on Getafe on Tuesday morning in front of more than 300 supporters making the journey from the UK to Spain.

North End will take on the La Liga side in Campoamor at 10.45am local time, and fans are able to attend the game without a ticket, free of charge. Full information for those coming to watch the fixture can be found by clicking here.

Unfortunately, due to logistics, there will be no live stream of this match, however you can follow updates live on social media.

PNE have been in Alicante since landing late on Friday evening, and have certainly been put to work in the Spanish heat.

Getafe are enjoying a pre-season camp themselves, training at the Pinatar Arena, located in Murcia around an hour outside of Campoamor.

The friendly against the Lilywhites will be the first of their pre-season preparations, with the Spanish side set to undergo a schedule involving five fixtures, with the likes of CD Leganes and Elche to come later in July.

Managed by former Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores, Getafe will be looking to improve on their 15th-place finish from the 2021/22 campaign.

Their main man during that season was Turkish forward Enes Ünal, who netted 16 times in the league, and he has reportedly attracted plenty of interest from top European sides this summer.

In terms of PNE team news, Ryan Lowe has a 23-man squad to choose from in Spain, with Sean Maguire having missed out on the camp due to an injury he picked up against Bamber Bridge.

Match Report: Getafe 2 PNE 1

12 July 2022

Hundreds of PNE fans were in attendance in Spain as Ryan Lowe’s side were beaten 2-1 by Getafe.

North End had gone ahead inside the opening two minutes of the game through Ryan Ledson, but two goals from Gastón Álvarez Sosa in the second half turned the tie around.

The PNE fans were still arriving in their numbers from Benidorm when Ledson turned the ball home, with Robbie Brady’s cross from the right being met at the back post by the central midfielder to open the scoring early.

Brady was involved again on five minutes, sending in another great cross, which Brad Potts sliced over the crossbar.

Republic of Ireland international Brady went into the book on 31 minutes after one of his challenges led to a bit of a melee by the North End touchline, in a half where decisions didn’t go the way of the side in red.

Getafe created a couple of chances after the hydration break just after the half-hour mark, with Carles Aleñá being denied by Freddie Woodman, before Sosa headed over in injury time.

Sosa scored early in the second half, though, as a Getafe free-kick was blocked but not cleared, and the central defender slammed home when the ball fell to him.

PNE made wholesale changes on the hour mark, with everyone but Ben Woodburn and Ben Whiteman being replaced.

Getafe came close to taking the lead just a couple of minutes later, with a flicked header from a corner going across the face of goal and bouncing back out off the post, before being cleared.

Sosa then scored the winner for his side six minutes from time, winning the header from the corner and beating Cornell.

PNE thought they’d got an equaliser late on through Alan Browne with a clever backheeled finish, however he was flagged offside.

PNE line-up: Woodman (Cornell, 60); Storey (Diaby, 60), Lindsay (Bauer, 60), Hughes (Cunningham, 60); Potts (Olosunde, 60), Whiteman (Amaral, 73), Ledson (McCann, 60), Brady (Coulton, 60); Johnson (Browne, 60), Woodburn (O’Neill, 73); Riis (Evans, 60).
