Opponents Getafe, managed by former Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores, are preparing for a sixth successive season in the Spanish top flight, after finishing 15th in the table in the 2021-22 campaign.

The most eye-catching of their results from last season came in January, when they defeated eventual La Liga and European champions Real Madrid 1-0 at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

Turkish striker Enes Unal scored the only goal of the game in the ninth minute.
