Atletico Madrid vs Getafe Prediction and Preview – 22/09/15
Spanish La Liga preview – Atletico Madrid vs Getafe prediction
Diego Simeone will not have major worries with injury concerns. There could however be selection concerns with Angel Correa looking good to grab a starting berth. There will be question marks over which system he will utilise.
For the away side, Emiliano Velazquez will miss out due to a clause that does not permit him to face his parent club. Santiago Vergini is a possible replacement for Fran Escriba. There are still injury doubts over the availability of Roberto Lago and Karim Yoda. Last game goal scorer Stefan Scepovic should retain his starting place.
Atletico Madrid: 4-3-3 formation: Oblak; Luis, Godin, Gimenez, Juan Fran; Koke, Gabi, O. Torres; Correa, F. Torres, Griezmann
Getafe: 4-2-3-1 formation: Guaita; Vigaray, Alexis, Vergini, Suarez; Lacen, J. Rodriguez; V. Rodriguez, Lafita, Leon; Scepovic
- Atletico kept a clean sheet in their last 9 matches against Getafe in all competitions
- Atletico won their last 6 home matches against Getafe in all competitions
- Getafe lost their last 6 away matches in La Liga
- Atletico are undefeated in 17 of their last 19 matches in La Liga
- Getafe are losing at both half-time and full-time in 5 of their last 6 away matches in La Liga
Atletico have taken 9 points out of the possible 12 after the first four matches. There is still a concern on their home form with Diego Simeone’s side netting only two goals in their first two league games at the Calderon. Simeone will like to try new formation at home against Getafe with bigger competition for later in the season.
Getafe picked their first points of the season with a win in the last round against Malaga. The Madrid-based club would like to kick on and Escriba will hope that his players can go on a run of points. However, history is against them with Getafe losing their last six consecutive away outings in the Spanish top flight.
Calderon is a tough place to come to and win points for opponents. Simeone’s side is a tough nut to crack at home. With the side looking to grab as many points as possible to stay in the title race, Getafe will have a tough task at hand. Expect Atletico to win.
