Stadium: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe)
There won’t be a team called Getafe next season in La Liga. The fairytale is over. The team has become entirely unfit for play, and Atletico must beat them under any circumstances.
Five defeats in five games. What’s there to talk about? There is no such team anymore. That’s it. It was already dying even under Bordalas, and without the coach who created everything there, nothing good could be expected. The time when Getafe was fighting for a place in the league is over. It’s time to pack your bags for the Segunda.
By the way, do you want to know a fun fact? Getafe have not scored against Atletico in 20 consecutive games. Do you think that Getafe will be able to come close to Atletico’s goal, let alone score? I seriously doubt it.
Atletico have a tough start to the season. And it doesn’t matter that the team has never lost. The point is that if they do win, it is a colossal task. In this case, the last two meetings for Madrid ended 0-0. The opponents were Salzburg and Athletic.
Atletico are desperate for points at the moment. Simeone’s side has a realistic chance of winning the league title again. But they have to beat clubs of the caliber of Getafe to do so. Please go out and take them out in the first half. I do not see any other options.
Expert Betting Tips
Purely because Getafe plays at home, the bookmakers give relatively high odds on Atletico. I suggest we don’t make anything up and play the Madrid side. On paper, they are the absolute favourites for this encounter.
