Getafe vs Atletico Madrid is one of the most interesting matches that will be played in the round on Thursday, July 16, 2020 in La Liga. It is a Madrid derby, with two teams that want to play in European competitions next season. The match is scheduled at the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez in Madrid. Our tip was chosen from the offer of the Betano bookmaker, the one that displays the best odds.
Getafe was all season in the top six in La Liga
Getafe is in sixth place, two stages before the final, with only three points more than Athletic Bilbao, which is out of European positions. The whole season was in this area and it would be a shame to be overtaken at the end. In the last four stages we saw a tired team, which won only two points out of twelve possible. He has two more meetings to play, with Atletico Madrid, at home, and Levante, away. He needs a victory to continue to hope for a presence in the Europa League. If he goes on the last line, he can get out of this area, right now, at the end. Jaime Mata is the team’s top scorer, with twelve goals scored.
- Probable team (4-3-3): Soria – Nyom, Dakonam, Cabaco, Olivera – Maksimovic, Arambarri, Timor – Jason, Mata, Cucurella
- Coach: Pepe Bordalas
- Suspended: Xabier Etxeita, Damian Suarez
Atletico Madrid has achieved its goal
For Atletico Madrid this has been a transitional season. Let’s not forget that he gave up eight players, quite important, even before the start of the current edition of La Liga. Qualifying for the Champions League can be considered a success. I don’t know if Simeone is hoping for something like that, after those changes at the beginning of the season. There were oscillating periods in which he had emotions that he would not achieve the goal. From now on you can think of more for the next edition. With two or three more valuable players he can compete without problems, with Real Madrid and Barcelona, for the title of champion in 2021. He proved once again that he is a valuable technician. Alvaro Morata has scored twelve goals this season
- Probable team (4-2-3-1): Oblak – Arias, Gimenez, Savic, Lodi – Niguez, Partey – Carrasco, Llorente, Koke – Diego Costa
- Coach: Diego Simeone
- Injured: Sime Vrsaljko
- Suspended: Mario Hermoso
Getafe vs Atletico Madrid Picks
Getafe has eleven consecutive defeats in direct meetings with Atletico Madrid. Before these games he had a period in which he did not give up on his own field in front of the opponent. It’s time to remember the matches of that time. It is the motivated team from this meeting. He needs the three points to keep his distance from Athletic Bilbao. It is worth the risk on a success of the hosts, but I will choose a slightly more moderate prognosis, in which to include a possible equal result.
Our Prediction: 1x
