Betting Tips for the game
Atletico Madrid have been excellent over the past three months as they are currently on an 18-game unbeaten streak across all competitions. Los Colchoneros are still trailing Barcelona and hope to reduce the five-point gap. Diego Simeone’s boys have been amazing on home soil of late, having won 12 and drawn three of their last 15 competitive outings.
Getafe have also enjoyed a strong run of form over the past two months, having suffered just one defeat in their last twelve games across all competitions. They enter the fray on the back of a five-game unbeaten streak, which includes a solid 4-0 home win against Alaves last time out in La Liga. In addition, Getafe followed this up with a narrow 1-0 home triumph against Valencia in Copa del Rey in midweek.
Atletico Madrid should be able to grab all three points here despite the fact that Getafe have been more than decent over the past few months. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Atletico Madrid to win at odds 1.57.

We can’t see too many goals in this one as Atletico are well-known for their defensive capabilities, while Getafe have struggled to score more than once per game on the road throughout this campaign. Furthermore, the most recent five meetings between these two sides have ended with under 2.5 goals. Our total goals prediction fancies under 2.5 goals at odds 1.53.
