Atletico Madrid travel the short distance to Getafe in order to get their domestic season form back to winning ways after some poor performances in the league. When the fixtures had been announced, not many people would have anticipated Getafe to be higher in the league, when these two sides kick off at 18:30 local time on Saturday.

Home Team: Getafe

getafe CF betting on footballGetafe finished last season in a promising 8th position, narrowly missing out on the European places by finishing three points below Sevilla. Due to the competitiveness of La Liga, going one better and getting into Europe would still be a challenge for Getafe, but they have started this season with a strong intent so far.

After providing a stern test for Real Madrid on the opening day, despite losing 2-0, they have managed to bounce back getting 7 points from the next possible 9, without conceding and beating Sevilla 2-0 in their own backyard in the process. Therefore, they have proved they can prove to be a test for anyone, and they’ll now be able to prove themselves again when Atletico Madrid come to town.

Away Team: Atletico Madrid

atletico madrid bet on footballLast season’s Europa League winners, and this year’s European Super Cup winners have managed to maintain their star players and added signings such as young French start Thomas Lemar and Portuguese winger Gelson Martins. However, their domestic form this season has gotten off to a slapdash start.

Their sole victory in the league this season was a narrow 1-0 home win against Rayo Vallecano. Their other results including losing at Celta Vigo, drawing at Valencia and being held at home to Eibar 1-1. The club have only scored three goals in four games, and usually their rock hard defence is rarely troubled but they have conceded an average goal per game which is far above their standard from last season.

Will they be able to pull off an impressive result at Getafe to kick-start their domestic form?

Head to Head (H2H)

la liga betting.footballGetafe have been unable to not beat Atletico Madrid since 2011, but what’s more incredible is that they have only managed to get one point and no goals, I repeat, no goals in the 11 most recent fixtures between the two. Atletico Madrid had scored 24 goals past Getafe in a row without a reply in all those fixtures.

On that occasion in 2011, Getafe had won 3-2 but little did the fans know that night it would be the last time they celebrated a goal against their local rivals. Atletico Madrid have won seven times in a row at home to Getafe including a few 3-0 wins and one 7-0 battering. At Getafe, Atletico Madrid have won on their last three visits, 0-1, 0-1 and 0-2. Ruthless.

Getafe vs Atletico Madrid Predictions and Betting Tips

Atletico Madrid are at 3/4 to come away with the spoils, with Getafe at 9/2 to get the victory. A draw is priced at 23/10. With Atletico Madrid having a reputable tough defence, and Getafe’s defence only conceding to Real Madrid this season, some may expect there to be few goals when the sides meet on Saturday.

Not only that, but even in the head to head, it has been 11 matches since both teams have scored in this fixture. A 0-0 draw is looking low at 6/1, so despite its likeliness, I like to think there may be a few more goals this time around. The most likely score line is a 1-0 away win at 4/1, which would be my ‘safe bet’ but for a more lucrative success, I’d tip a 2-1 away win at 17/2.

Incredibly, its 1/6 for there to be less than 3.5 goals in the match, suggesting not many goals will be scored in this match, but be daring and bet on there being more than 3.5, and you will be rewarded with odds such as 7/2.
