Getafe vs Atl. Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
The fans of Getafe have been looking forward to the city derby against Real Madrid all week long. With a bit of luck, they take the seventh place and they can dream aloud of European football. However, Atletico Madrid is not in the mood at all and is already looking forward to the Europa League final of next week.
The weeks of truth have arrived for Getafe. The PhD student initially went for life preservation, but the people of Madrid greatly exceeded their own expectations. With just two rounds of play, the blues shirts are only two points away from the seventh place, a place that entitles them to participate in the preliminary rounds of the Europa League. Of course, the season is already successful, but as a matter of course Los Azulones are now full of European football. Defender Vitorino Antunes: ‘The home game against Atletico Madrid is our Europa League final!’
With four wins and a draw Getafe is in any case in blood form. Last weekend, low flyer Las Palmas was tied to 0-0 by a late goal thanks to a late goal from club top scorer Angel Rodriguez, who kept the European dream alive. The results in their own Coliseum, however, are disappointing in recent weeks with only one victory in the last four home matches. With only 32 opponents, the strength of the Madrid squad clearly lies in the rear, although coach Jose Bordalas can not rely on right back Damian Suarez this weekend. Good old Francisco Molinero (32 years old) is his intended replacement. Experience enough, because Antunes (31 years old), Sergio Mora (38 years old) Angel Rodriguez (31 years old) and Jorge Molina (36 years old) have already passed the thirty of the thirties.
For Atletico Madrid, the derby against Getafe is in fact nothing more than a compulsory number. Not only did Los Colchoneros already have their ticket for the Champions League, barely four days after Getafe-out, they are waiting in Lyon for the Europa League final against Arsenal. It is therefore not surprising that trainer Diego Simeone will rotate and keep his belts on the sidelines.
Simeone is usually not so rotated, but in this game the Argentine has absolutely no appetite. According to Marca, he even planned to kick off the second team, but the Spanish Football Federation stuck out. In order to prevent a distortion of competition, Atletico Madrid is obliged to draw a minimum of seven players from the first team. In itself also understandable, given the interests that are still at stake for Getafe and its competitors. However, the football association can not prevent Simeone most likely to opt for lesser gods such as Axel Werner, Stefan Savic, Kevin Gameiro and Fernando Torres, while the intended base forces for the cracker against Arsenal are likely to play at half strength.
