Getafe Preview – Is their playstyle still effective or have teams caught on?

Getafe Club de Fútbol was as high as 4th at the midway point in the season, and the dream of Champions League football was not as unrealistic as first imagined. They now find themselves sitting in 6th place and Champions League at least for this season is no longer a possibility.

However, with 54 points in the league; the same as Real Sociedad beneath them, the azulones need to get positive results in their final two matches to avoid the lengthy Europa League qualification stages that can impact their small squad size at these periods of time next season.

Is burnout this season having an impact on their performances? Since the restart, they have only scored 6 goals in 9 matches.

Our betting prediction:
Porto Win Both teams to score

(odds taken 1500 GMT, Tuesday 14 July)

Scoring a plethora of goals may not be the mantra of Getafe coach Jose Bordalas, as the 6th placed side has scored fewer goals than Granada and Real Betis in 10th and 13th respectively. The winning art to their success this season has been in defence, where they boast the joint third defence in the league.

the high intensity 4-4-2 that has shades of the play produced in the ties opponents Atletico, seems to be slowing on the momentum that was producing the results that had been so effective earlier in the season. A large portion of the goalscoring burden has fallen on Angel and Jaime Mata who have 49% of the side’s goals in the league this season.

Should the rest of the team not help out with the goalscoring workload, The likes of Sociedad and Valencia could overtake them in the Europa League places altogether.


Atletico Preview – Are Atletico turning into potential Champions League Winners?

A real flip in performances for both sides here, before quarantine, Atletico Madrid were proving inconsistent in their results and building up a staggering pace of draws especially away from the Wanda Metropolitano.

However, since the restart, Atletico is unbeaten registering 6 wins from 9. Diego someone has seemed to awoken is usual well-oiled machine and all pistons are firing for the Atleti side, keeping 5 clean sheets in the process and scoring 16 goals. A healthy output of 1.77 goals per game.

A key man this season that is not often mentioned for Atleti is Alvaro Morata. the sides top scorer in the league with 12 goals have been vital. Providing more than 25% of all Atletico Madrid’s goals for the season.

Atleti seems to have found that stellar defense again. often winning by scoring 1 or 2 goals but keeping a clean sheet or only conceding the one goal in the game. the Liverpool result in the Champions League seemed to be the catalyst for this upturn in form.

The only issue at this present moment is the number of draws they have amassed over the course of the season. especially away from home. 10 matches that Atletico has been involved in away have resulted in a stalemate, a figure that reflects a poor points tally of 66, 13 points behind Barcelona.

Getafe vs Atletico Madrid Betting Advice

The reverse fixture which took place at the beginning of the season was a 1-0 to Atleti, a solid win with a clean sheet. A common result for Simeone’s side, one that we are likely to see again Thursday night.

Key Facts – Getafe vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tip

  • Getafe have 1 win in 9 games
  • Atletico Madrid have 5 clean sheets in 9
  • Getafe’s Angel has 7 goals at home


The Thursday evening game is bound to be a highly intense game where both teams set up in similar fashion. It is easy to assume that Atleti has the better of Getafe when it comes to individual talent. Atletico Madrid have seen 7 different goalscorers in the last few matches meaning goals can come from anywhere.

Getafe on the other hand will have to rely heavily on the attacking pair of Angel and Mata, strikers who haven’t seen much to celebrate since the return of fixtures. If Getafe is going to look to get anything out of the game, then these two players, in particular, are needed to win the game.

Even if they manage to find a way to create problems for the Atletico side, the small issue of beating Jan Oblak is the next hurdle. The Slovenian has had a stellar performance this season and will be looking to add to his second-best tally of 16 clean sheets this season.
