Atletico Madrid will be desperate to get back to winning ways on Saturday evening when they welcome Getafe at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. The defending champions suffered a heavy 4-2 defeat against Barcelona and lost their fourth spot in the standings to the Catalans in result, while Getafe trashed Levante by 3-0 and managed to put some distance between themselves and the danger zone.

Atletico Madrid v Getafe Predictions and Preview
Atleitco Madrid’s struggles continued last week, as the defending champions now trail by 17 points behind arch rivals Real Madrid and have slipped to fifth place in the table after losing to Barcelona. Diego Simeone’s men have been out from the title race for a while, but losing out on a Champions League spot for next term would be catastrophic.
Welcoming Getafe, seems like the perfect chance for Atleti to return to winning ways, as Los Colchoneros are unbeaten in 21 consecutive games against this opponent.
Quique Sanchez Flores’s side has been on fantastic form and has only one league loss since the end of November – a run that allowed them to climb above the danger zone. Getafe currently hold a five-points lead over 18-th placed Cadiz and although the Blues are capable of upsetting Atleti, their poor away record means that the champions should have what it takes to take three points this weekend.
Atletico Madrid vs. Getafe full time result odds
Atletico Madrid will be without Antoine Griezmann, Marcos Llorente and Geoffrey Kondogbia, who are all injured. However, Diego Simeone’s men can’t get this one wrong, as they won just two of their last eight games and have slipped to fifth place in result.
Getafe, meanwhile, have done much better recently, with only one loss in their last 10 La Liga games. Quique Sanchez Flores will have his full squad available and although his men have performed well recently, they are winless in their last 14 games on the road and will find it hard to get a result against the defending champions in their back yard.
Atletico Madrid vs. Getafe over/under odds
Four of Getafe’s last five away games have seen under 1.5 goals, so you can place a bet for a repeat of that scenario on Saturday at 7/4. If you are looking for a safer option, you can go with Under 2.5 goals at 7/10, while you can combine this with a victory for Atleti for a total odds of 31/20.
Atletico Madrid vs. Getafe correct score odds
The last two times Atletico welcomed Getafe at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano, Diego Simeone’s men earned 1-0 victories. Quique Sanchez Flores’s men are winless in their last 14 away La Liga games and have lost five of those by the same result. Therefore, a narrow 1-0 home win is 4/1 as part of our Atletico Madrid v Getafe tips.
Atletico Madrid vs. Getafe first goalscorer odds
With Antoine Griezmann still injured, Luis Suarez will be the man to watch in the first scorer market ahead of this Atletico Madrid vs. Getafe clash. The Uruguayan netted his first La Liga goal since November last week in the 4-2 defeat against his former side Barcelona and now has a total of eight league goals. The 35-year-old is a 3/1 favourite to break the deadlock on Saturday, while the odds raise to 19/1 if you pair this with a 1-0 win for Atletico.
