La Liga 2022-23
This season, Atletico Madrid can already throw all its strength into the championship of Spain. The club flew out of the Champions League, which deprived the fans of even the usual playoffs. After the fiasco in the Copa del Rey against Real Madrid, the team lost all hopes, except for La Liga.
For 19 rounds of the current championship, the club recorded 10 wins and four draws, which corresponds to 34 points and the fourth position. In the last two matches, the team defeated Valladolid (3-0) and Osasuna (1-0).
It’s unlikely that Getafe’s low-scoring record will hurt Atlético Madrid’s defensive record and just one of the last nine games they’ve managed to score twice.
Moreover, last Sunday the guests suffered their fifth defeat in a row, and lost twice in a row with a score (0-1).
Club president Ángel Torres backed Quique Sánchez Flores to ensure the team’s survival during his third tenure at the club. This is despite the fact that Getafe are currently only one point short of what they had after 19 games in the last competition.

Most likely, due to the class and huge tournament motivation, Diego Simeone’s wards will take control of the game, which will eventually lead to a confident victory and three tournament points.
We assume that in this match you can expect a lot of attacks and scoring chances. Atletico play well in defense, while in head-to-head meetings they often show scoring games.
Prediction for this match: Atletico Madrid win in 1st half.
- Total over 2.5 goals.
