Saturday’s Primera Division fixtures will end with Atlético de Madrid v Getafe on our website. Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet application.
The Spurs could fail the season
Atletico are the reigning Spanish champions, but the team will probably not be able to defend the title, given their 17-point gap to the leader. “The mattresses are only fifth, two points behind the first quartet. In the last round, Diego Simeone’s side lost away to direct rivals Barcelona 2-4. For many, that defeat was expected, given the atmosphere in the dressing room, which is not the best. Atletico have a good squad, but no game; the club is in danger of failing the season. Four players will not take the field due to injuries.
Getafe are on the rebound
We have already written many times in our predictions about Getafe’s comeback in the Primera. The club was already approaching Segundo, but the appointment of Kike Sanchez Flores as head coach turned things around. Now the team has already risen to 15th position, with a solid gap of 7 points from the relegation zone. In the last round, Getafe confidently defeated Levante 3-0, the victory being their fourth in six meetings. Only Vitolo will be unable to help the side in this fixture due to an injury.
It was a thriller in the first leg as Getafe took a 1-0 lead on 74 minutes before being downed. With time remaining, the Spurs managed to snatch a 2-1 win thanks to a Luis Suarez brace.
Atletico is the favorite here, because despite the good form of Getafe, the “mattresses” squad is clearly stronger and much will depend on them. We don’t expect bright and attacking football here, both teams are not of that style. We’re betting on a total of less than 2.5 goals.
