Getafe come into Sunday’s meeting unbeaten in their last six. Strong defensive displays have been at the heart of recent successes; Luis Garcia’s side have not conceded in their last four matches and they also managed to shut out Atletico Madrid the last time Diego Simeone’s side visited (although that came in the second leg of their Copa Del Rey tie after losing the first game 3-0). Atletico have failed to win on their last four trips here though.
Simeone’s side have also won just one of their last five games and look destined to take third spot. Odds of just over evens for a win away to a Getafe side pushing for European places therefore look too short. A win for the home side and they would remain in contention to sneak into the Champions League places at just five points behind Real Sociedad who currently occupy the much sought after fourth berth.
With more motivation, more confidence and a great recent record here against Atletico, all the value lies with a Getafe win at odds of 31/10 (BetVictor). Getafe have only scored thirteen of their thirty eight goals this season in the first half so it may also be worth gambling on a draw at half-time before the hosts sneak the win in the second half. Draw/Getafe in the half-time/full-time markets pays at 8/1, also with BetVictor.
