Getafe vs Atletico Madrid
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Thursday, 16 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Jose Bordalas’s men are currently placed sixth in the table, and in possession of the final direct-entry ticket into the Europa League. With just two games remaining in the season, they have no chance to make it into the Champions League. However, their Europa status is so far not confirmed as well.
The seventh-placed Bilbao, currently level on points with this team, are furiously going after a top-six finish. Fortunately though, they are pitted against tough customer Sevilla this Thursday.
In the meantime, Bordalas’s men are supposed to take on one of the best teams in the league – Diego Simeone’s men.
Considering the great form Los Colchoneros are in, their impressive h2h superiority over this rival in h2h clashes, and finally the struggles of their counterparts – expect Atletico Madrid to dominate proceedings at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
However, they will have to be careful, taking into account the desperation of the hosts.
Getafe vs Atletico Madrid: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Simeone’s men are on a five-game winning run against this rival.
- They had also recorded 22 of the previous 26 overall wins.
- They have kept clean sheets in the previous 17 encounters in a row.
- The guests are on a five-fixture winning run at this stadium.
- The last the home team scored a goal here was back in 2011.
Getafe vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction
Bordalas’s men were held to a goalless draw on the road the last match-day, by Alaves. In the meantime, the Colchoneros recorded a 1-0 win at home the past game week, against Betis.
As things stand, Simeone’s men are easily the favorites. They are unbeaten in the last 16 fixtures on the trot, and have scored two or more goals in three of their former five match-ups. Keep note that they have also kept clean sheets in five of their last eight overall fixtures.
On the road, they are on an unbeaten run of eight trips, and their last away loss had in fact come against Real Madrid.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in nine of their preceding ten overall fixtures, and remained so in five of their last six appearances at this venue.
Moreover, the Colchoneros are on a five-match winning run against this rival, and they had recorded 22 of the preceding 26 h2h wins. Frighteningly, they have kept clean sheets in the former 17 meetings in a row, and are on a five-game winning run against them at this venue as well.
Considering these stats, expect a dominating win by Atletico Madrid this Thursday.
