Back Getafe to get a result at home to local rivals Atletico Madrid
Getafe face local opponents Atletico Madrid, and the odds suggest the hosts can emerge victorious in this derby.
The home side has been in great form in the league with only two losses in their last ten league matches. Those defeats came versus Atletico Madrid late last season and Real Madrid on match week one of the current campaign. Getafe are a physical side and defensively solid. They are still not afraid of committing men forward. They will go for the jugular because the visitors rarely control the play but wait for the perfect moment to kill the game.
Atletico Madrid has recently been poor on the road and got just a point from their first two away games this season. The side usually turns up on games that really matter, but this one doesn’t fall into that category. Plus, it’s still very early in the season for them. Atleti’s strength lies in defensive organisation, and they usually win when they open the accounts first. In the absence of defender Stevan Savic, Atletico’s Diego Godin will likely fill in at the back.
Getafe can exploit the gaps, and value there is value in backing the hosts to win.
Key Match Facts
- Getafe is yet to concede two goals at home – a run of 10 league games now.
- Antoine Griezmann has been involved in two of the last three Atleti’s goals against Getafe – 2 assists.
