Preview: The previous campaign didn’t feature many highs from an Atletico Madrid perspective. Even during a below-par season, Diego Simeone’s men still found it within themselves to maintain their stranglehold on this particular fixture, winning home and away versus Getafe whose search for a first H2H win since 2011 resumes here.

Getafe – Madrid-based outfit to kick on under QSF? 

Successive 15th-place finishes ensured a sixth consecutive spell in La Liga for Getafe, who looked in serious peril after losing their first seven games. However the decision to install Quique Sanchez Flores as head coach proved to be inspired. The former Watford tactician completely transformed the fortunes out on the pitch. Although momentum had faded by the end, as they won only two of their final 15 fixtures (D8 L5).

Azulones wouldn’t win any of the final five games, scoring just twice, as they limped to safety in the end. So it will be intriguing to see which version of Getafe appears on Matchday 1: the one hungry in the early weeks of Sanchez Flores’ tenure, or that which ran out of steam. Regardless, we can expect a competitive showing at Alfonso Coliseum Perez, where Barca, Real Sociedad and Real Madrid all came unstuck in 2021-22.

Key Stat: Quique Sanchez Flores oversaw 15 La Liga home games after he was appointed manager in October last year. The 57-year-old’s record in these games was commendable: W7 D6 L2, with his team scoring 19, conceding 10 and keeping ten clean sheets.


Getafe Win or Draw



Atletico Madrid – Big improvement needed on 2021-22 showing?

At the beginning of 2021-22, Atletico Madrid were the team to beat in Spain after pipping Real Madrid to the league title – their 11 in all and second of the Diego Simeone era, which is now entering its twelfth term – the season before. As it transpired, they were indeed beaten. Well beaten. Surrendering the title back to their Madrid rivals in meek fashion, beaten into third where they were 16 points adrift by the end.

In an effort to address last season’s shortcomings, many anticipated a big summer in the transfer market. Thus far, though, incomings have been restricted to three new faces, none of which get the pulse racing. And yet, if Simeone can get his team playing in a similar vein to the second half of last season, when they won 10 of the last 14, most notably at home to Real Madrid, then perhaps a title tilt could materialise.

Key Stat: For a team renowned for being near-impregnable defensively, Atletico Madrid did find clean sheets harder to come by in 2021-22. This was especially true away from home where they only shutout three teams (Osasuna, Elche and Rayo Vallecano).

Getafe Vs Atletico Madrid Betting Advice

There were many low moments in Atletico Madrid’s season last time round – like losing four consecutive La Liga games under Simeone for the first time – but their record away to the lesser lights of the division had to be right up there. Last season saw Los Colchoneros fail to beat all of last season’s bottom four finishers on the road (D1 L3), and they begin this season away to a side that placed a point above the drop zone.


Getafe Vs Atletico Madrid – Key Facts:

  • Last season saw Atletico Madrid come from behind to win home and away against Getafe, who were denied a point courtesy of 89th and 90th minute winners from Diego Simeone’s gritty outfit.
  • Until last season, though, there had been 13 consecutive La Liga meetings between the duo seeing Under 2.5 Goals and Both Teams To Score NO.
  • Goals may once again prove scarce then. Particularly should both teams pick up where they left off last term. Getafe conceded in only one of their last six home outings, while Atletico Madrid allowed just two goals across their final four fixtures.


Getafe’s miserable history with this fixture is well-documented, going 19 league and cup games without so much as scoring prior to last season. The drought is over, however, after notching four across their pair of league encounters in 2021-22. Atletico needed late goals to win both, though, as Getafe finally found their competitive edge. The hosts looks a spot of value, then, to improve further and claim at least a point.
