Getafe vs Atletico Madrid Preview, Betting Tips and Odds

Getafe vs Atletico Madrid predictions for Thursday’s match in La Liga.

Getafe played out a goalless draw away at Alaves on Monday night and have now gone without a win in their last four league games, while Atletico Madrid won 1-0 at Real Betis on Saturday to make it 14 matches unbeaten in La Liga. A heated encounter between these two sides back in April saw Atletico Madrid claim a 1-0 win thanks to a first-half goal from Morata and both teams end the game with 10-men.

Atletico Madrid head into Thursday’s clash as the clear form favourites with four wins and two draws from their last six outings, ahead of Getafe who have drawn three, won one and lost two of their last six league games. The visitors sit 12pts and three places above Getafe in the La Liga table but can’t afford to drop any points as Sevilla are on the same points as Atletico heading into the final two games of the season.

Atletico Madrid are the draw specialists on the road
Our prediction for under 2.5 goals being scored in Thursday’s clash and the game ending in a draw is backed up by plenty of statistics. The last six meetings between Getafe and Atletico have produced under 2.5 goals, as have four of the hosts’ last six league games and Atletico’s last two outings. Under 2.5 goals have been produced in 56% of Getafe’s home matches this season as well as in a whopping 78% of the visitors’ away trips in La Liga.

In terms of a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 1-1 draw between the two clubs this Thursday. Both teams have scored in 50% of Atletico’s away games this season as well as in three of the visitors’ last five matches. Getafe score an average of 1.39 goals per home game and concede an average of 1.00 goals while Atletico score an average of 1.17 goals per away game and concede 0.89 goals, which ties in nicely with our prediction for a 1-1 draw.

We’re expecting a close game at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez
Getafe have drawn six of their last ten in La Liga and Atletico have drawn ten times on the road this season and are unbeaten in their last 14 league games, so you can see why we’re predicting a draw on Thursday. Getafe have only lost four times at home this season but haven’t won any of their last six games against Atletico while the visitors have drawn five of their last seven away trips, suggesting that a stalemate is the most likely result.
