Getafe vs Atletico Madrid

, KO: 21:00 May 15, 2024, Estadio Coliseum
Atletico Madrid

Getafe host Atletico Madrid in a midweek La Liga fixture with both teams looking to end the season on a high. Getafe have been out of sorts lately and should find things difficult against Atletico Madrid, who have looked solid lately.

Getafe head into Wednesday’s clash off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Cadiz in their previous La Liga fixture. That was the second straight defeat for Jose Bordalas’ men who have actually picked up just two wins from their last 11 matches.

That poor run also extends to their home fixtures as Getafe have picked up just one win from their last five matches at Estadio Coliseum. They were beaten 2-0 by Athletic Bilbao in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

In contrast to Getafe, Atletico Madrid were victorious last time out in La Liga as they triumphed 1-0 over Celta Vigo. They have now picked up five wins from their last six La Liga matches and will be keen to maintain that run till the end of the season.

Although things have not been particularly smooth on their travels, Atletico Madrid have still won two of their last three away matches. First Diego Simeone’s men claimed a 2-1 victory at Villarreal before edging out Mallorca 1-0.

How the bookies view it: Atletico highly fancied

Atletico Madrid have been installed as overwhelming favourites among the bookies and are priced at 4/5 by bet365 to claim the win. Getafe are considered outsiders with a home win valued at 15/4 while a draw is set at odds of 5/2.

Head to head: History favours Atletico

Atletico Madrid have a 27-4 advantage with 11 draws from 43 previous matches against Getafe. However, the last two meetings have ended in draws with both teams battling to a 3-3 scoreline in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch: Griezmann & Morata have Getafe’s number

Antoine Griezmann and Alvaro Morata often do well in this fixture with both men scoring three goals each in the last three meetings. Griezmann is priced at 15/8 by bet365 to score any time while Morata is valued at 6/4 in the same market.

With Borja Mayoral still out injured, Mason Greenwood will be the one to watch for Getafe. The forward has eight La Liga goals and is priced at 7/2 by bet365 to get on the score sheet on Wednesday.

Probable line-ups

Getafe are not expected to make too many changes, with Jamie Mata likely to continue in attack for the injured Borja Mayoral.
Alvaro Morata was a second half substitute for Atletico Madrid against Celta Vigo and could be given a start on Wednesday.

Getafe: Soria, Angileri, Rico, Alvarez, Djene, Carmona, Maksimovic, Milla, Santiago, Greenwood, Mata
Atletico Madrid: Oblak, Savic, Witsel, Hermoso, Azpilicueta, Llorente, Koke, Riquelme, Correa, Griezmann, Morata

Anything else catch the eye? Expect goals in open contest
