Atletico Madrid vs Getafe
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 26th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).

Los Indios is second in the LaLiga table, keeping the holders Barcelona under pressure. They will have to win their upcoming games and hope that the Catalans falter in one of two of their matches.

After a loss to Dortmund in the Champions League back in October last year, they are unbeaten in all competitions. In 4 of their recent 4 competitive games, the score was less than 2.5 goals. They are fresh from a 0-3 away win against Huesca who are at the bottom of the table.

Only two teams have never lost a home game this season, one is Alaves and Atleti is the second. With such power at home, their opponents for Saturday will need a special performance to upset Diego Simeone.

El Geta are 6th in the table still in contention for Europa League qualification. There is a 10 point difference between them and the Red and Whites. With a 2 match win streak going on they will be high on morale in this upcoming match.

With those recent wins, they are unbeaten in their last 5 competitive fixtures. Only one game was lost by Getafe in the last 10 matches in all competitions. That defeat was against Barcelona in the league. Three of their last 5 matches were low scoring affairs, and they had a clean sheet in 3 of those matches.

An 11 match unbeaten run exists in matches away from home for the “Deep Blues”.  In 10 of those matches both the sides found the net. The common score was 1-1 which came in 7 of those games.

With two sides on unbeaten runs in the home and away games respectively, we can be sure for this match to be as close as it can get.
