After a brave display of power in Champions League against FC Barcelona, Atletico Madrid return to La Liga action to defend their title chances. The best betting broker for original accounts gives them 1.45 odds to win in the match against Getafe, a team battling to avoid relegation, but considering not even Messi could score against Atletico we’re not seeing Courtois conceding against Getafe.
Looking at the form of the two teams you can easily spot the difference in form; Atletico is unbeaten in their last seven La Liga matches while Getafe managed to win once in their last five. The hosts also have a -20 goal difference and have Gavilan, Lago and Moya on the injury list. You can’t really predict them to at least draw against Atletico as their away form is as bad as their home one.
Atletico has to win this match if they want to keep their momentum and stay on top of La Liga. Against them could speak the fact that they are fresh from a very demanding Champions League match, could be too tired to focus fully or even worse commit mistakes in the backline. They can play without Turan and Costa and are expected to win with a great goal margin.
Over 2.5 goals is at 2.05 with First online sports betting website, both teams to score at 2.20 but we are going to bet 8 units on Atletico winning both halves at 2.15 with the same bookie.
