At the 1st Round of La Liga, one of the most interesting matches is Atletico Madrid vs Getafe, at Wanda Metropolitano, in Madrid. Last season Getafe showed all their abilities and took 5th place in Primera División. In 38 games, Getafe won 15 and drawn 14 matches, what is a really great result for such a team. Like every season in Spain, we saw lots of changes, especially between middle-class teams. Getafe showed a strong character and was able to compete for the right to participate in the Europa League without qualifications this year.

Even playing at the peak of their game, for Atletico Getafe is a comfortable opponent. During the last 2 season, Madridistas won all 4 La Liga matches whitout conceding any goal and scoring 7 in total. The Indians this year look much stronger, even selling several very talented and strong players. In this match, the most interesting thing is how Atletico will start the season and show their new players. So read our thoughts on this Atletico Madrid vs Getafe match here below.

 

Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid took last season second place in La Liga. They lost only 6 games during whole season and showed really strong character and defensive abilities. They conceded only 29 goals in 38 matches, which is a very confident result in such a difficult league. In Champions League, even after winning at Wanda Metropolitano against Juventus, they lost with final aggregate score 3:2. Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hattrick and smashed their chances to play in Quarter-Final.

In general, the off-season has made a lot of changes in the squad. Antoine Griezmann finally joined Barcelona for 120m €, Lucas Hernandez left the club for Bayern Munich for 80m € and Rodri departured to Manchester City for 70m €. These transfers are the main for the squad, as at once three strong leaders left the club. However, they brought young Portuguese super talent Joao Felix for 126m € and several other interesting players. We hope that after these changes the quality of the game will remain the same and the team will continue to show excellent results in Spain and beyond.

The team accentuates the game on defense and they do it very well. During the preparatory games, Felix has already shown his abilities, scoring several goals. Honestly, he looks even more confidently than experienced Griezmann, who left to Barcelona. Unfortunately, Sime Vrsaljko will miss the next match due to knee surgery. Diego Costa and Angel Correa have red card suspensions, both of them will be able to play only after this game.

 

Getafe

Getafe brilliantly played last season and showed themselves from the very best side. Pepe Bordalás showed great results, as he promoted team from Segunda Division to 5th place in LaLiga in 3 seasons. This team finishing offseason without any big signings and departures, as the main squad leaders stayed in the squad. In general, the team remained the same as last season. This is good because the players are well aware of the tactics, know each other and prepared for weak and strong sides of the game. They need to continue in the same way and finally break 4 defeats in a row against Atletico Madrid. Getafe can’t score at Wanda Metropolitano since the 2010 year.

Of course, this will be a very difficult task to play as good as it is possible. They should be strong in defense, as now with Joao Felix they really look more dangerous. The team is well prepared and will fight to the very end. We believe that this game will not be devastating. Unfortunately, Vitorino Antunes will miss the match against Atletico due to cruciate ligament rupture.
