Getafe vs Atletico Madrid
Spanish La Liga
Date: 15 August 2022, Monday
Kick-off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Atletico Madrid will enter the new La Liga season in the highest spirits following some impressive displays in the recent friendlies.
Los Colchoneros demolished Italian Serie A heavyweights Juventus last Sunday 0-4. Striker Alvaro Morata stole the show by completing a hat-trick against his former side.
Diego Simeone’s men were unusually inspired offensively in the recent pre-season checks. They have also bagged four goals against Numancia and Cadiz each and they have dispatched Manchester United 1-0 in the meantime as well.
Atletico Madrid will thus be hoping to maintain the impeccable pre-season form into the new La Liga campaign.
They should have a nice chance to do so on Monday against Getafe who have been far less impressive in their tests this summer.
As a matter of fact, Getafe are winless in the previous five summer exhibitions. Unlike Los Colchoneros, Getafe have been struggling badly to create clear-cut openings up front this summer.
Getafe have scored just one goal in the last five outings and it has come in a 1-1 stalemate to FC Cartagena four weeks ago.
Getafe ended pre-season with back-to-back 0-1 defeats to the likes of Elche and Albacete. Quique Sanchez Flores and his troops will, however, hope they can use the home court advantage here knowing that seven of their eight wins in the entire last season have come at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Getafe vs Atletico Madrid Head-to-head
- On top of form, Atletico Madrid will have tradition on their side here since they won nine and drew one of the last ten outings against Getafe.
- Atletico Madrid bagged six goals in two victories over Azulones in the previous term of La Liga.
- As many as 12 of the previous 14 head to head affairs between these two rivals ended with fewer than three goals scored.
Getafe vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Atletico Madrid have been impeccable in the pre-season and they will enter this season opener in much higher spirits than their counterparts who are winless in the previous five outings.
Knowing that Los Colchoneros have also won nine and drawn one of the previous ten H2H encounters with Getafe, we have no other option but to back the visitors to win at the 1.90 odds.
