La Liga

GET vs ATM: Match Prediction, Preview & Kickoff

When Getafe hosts Atletico Madrid in the fifth round of La Liga fixtures, they will be looking for their first win of the season. They have yet to earn a point this season and are now ranked 19th in the league. Meanwhile, after a 2-2 draw with Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, Atletico Madrid grabbed temporary control of the table with 11 points.

Getafe has struggled in both offense and defence as they prepare for this encounter; they have only scored one goal in five games, with three of those games producing over 2.5 goals. They had just suffered their greatest loss of the season, losing 3-0 to Rayo Vallecano, ahead of this encounter.

It was their eighth loss in ten league games; they only won one of those games and failed to score in eight of them.Getafe has failed to score in seven of their previous ten league matches away from home, and they have failed to score in 19 meetings with Atletico Madrid.

The last time Atletico conceded a goal in a match against Getafe was in 2011. Atletico will be trying to improve on their previous two results as they look to prolong their dominance over their hosts. They've drawn two straight games coming into this one, though against considerably harder opponents.

Atletico Madrid has three victories in five league games, remains undefeated in six games this season, and has scored two or more goals in three of those games. Atletico Madrid has kept three clean sheets in their last five games and is unbeaten in their last ten league games.

Joao Felix, who was sent off in the draw with Athletic Club, will miss this game.

SUMMARY:

Getafe are coming off a bad run in the league, with no wins and only one goal in their last five games. In addition, they haven't scored in 19 encounters with Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid are the clear favourites, and they should be able to overcome their two-game scoring drought. I'll back Atletico Madrid to win this match against a team that hasn't had a great scoring streak. The game will be played today at 6:30 PM Nigerian and UK time.
