Atletico Madrid vs Getafe
Spanish La Liga
Date: 30 December 2020, Wednesday
Kick-off at 18:15 UK/ 19:15 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Atletico Madrid aim for a win against Getafe on Wednesday to stretch their lead over Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga title race.
The two Madrid based clubs are locked on 32 points at the top of the table, but Diego Simeone’s men have played 2 games less than their cross city rivals.
The Rojiblancos have been the most consistent side in the league and this seems to be their season to lift the title. There have been 10 wins from their 13 games so far, while points were dropped on 3 occasions in the form of a defeat and two draws. Interestingly, the team that defeated them in Spain this year is Real.
Meantime, Getafe are struggling this season and occupy the 13th spot in La Liga table.
They managed to beat Cadiz (2-0) and hold Celta to a draw (1-1) in the recent two games, but this unbeaten streak came after a disastrous run of 7 games without win.
Their defense, which was the backbone of last season’s success is no where it used to be, while the attacking unit remains blunt. They can no more squeeze out 1-0 wins and it is not a surprise that they are reeling at the bottom half of the league table.

Atletico Madrid vs Getafe Prediction
With an unbeaten home record in the season and an excellent home record against Getafe, 10 match winning streak without conceding a goal, the current La Liga leaders can be backed to win in Wednesday’s clash.
We can also take the home win to nil as an alternate value option considering Getafe’s troubles in front of goal and the 5 clean sheets Atleti kept in their 7 home games this season.
I will also take the correct full-time score 2-0 since the same scoreline is seen in 4 of their last 5 h2h meetings at this ground.
