Getafe vs Atl. Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
Some are already qualified for Europe, the others are still fighting bitterly for participation: If the small Madrid derby between Getafe and Atletico Madrid is on the agenda in the Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Thursday, there is a lot at stake, especially for the home side.
Getafe is fighting to move into the Europa League, the Azulones are in sixth place with the same point Real Sociedad in the neck, so they urgently need three points in the fight for European qualification – otherwise there is a risk of falling to seventh.
Atletico meanwhile can go into the derby less determinedly, after all, the team of coach Diego Simeone has already secured the ticket for the Champions League.
But as you know the colchoneros, they will not give up a meter of grass voluntarily, a bitter duel is to be expected. This is shown in the game Getafe vs. Atletico also when looking at the odds, which are very balanced.
For Getafe, the derby is nothing less than moving to Europe, but the team from the Madrid suburb would have to score three times again. The team of coach Pepe Bordalas has only succeeded once since restarting La Ligas.
Since then there has been only one win in nine games (1S / 5U / 3N) – not really the record of a Europa League aspirant, but since the competition is also weakening considerably, Getafe remains in sixth place.
Most recently, on Matchday 36, 0: 0 for the relegation candidate Deportivo Alaves was again lean, but the point gain was sufficient to keep the Real Sociedad tied in the fight for the EL qualification at a distance, as Getafe won the direct comparison against the Basques who in the end counts in the event of a tie.
The point in Alaves was just enough from a table, but Getafe’s trainer Pepe Bordalas was not satisfied with it. “We always want to win the games. The point does not mean a lot to us. ”At least Bordalas was impressed by the effort of his team,“ I am satisfied with the work that the boys have done ”.
Hard work, strength and team spirit has always been the hallmark of Bordala’s team. With these virtues Getafe wants to secure participation in the Europa League for the second time in a row. However, this goal will only be difficult to achieve with a tie – because there have been too many of them recently and over the entire season.
Getafe have accumulated six draws in the last ten games, twelve throughout the season. Only two teams shared the points more often, just the upcoming opponent Atletico is one of them, the Rojiblancos have 15 division of points.
This sixth place should be maintained or even improved, but it won’t be easy in the small derby against Atletico.
While every point counts for Getafe, the best three of which are of course retracted, Atletico Madrid has no more pressure before the derby. The Rojiblancos already have participation in the Champions League in their pockets.
“Our goal was to finish in the top four, and we have already achieved that,” said Diego Costa, the scorer after the 1-0 home win against Betis last matchday. But now putting your feet up doesn’t really match the mentality of the team, as the attacker explains: “We still have two games to go and want to win to keep the momentum going.”
Atletico wants to end the season well and take his strong form to the Champions League, so a drop in performance should be avoided. The Rojiblancos are already 14 games unbeaten, six of the nine games since the restart have been won – five of them without conceding a goal. So Atletico is Atletico again.
In Getafe, too, one can assume that the colchoneros will again, as usual, hold up against it, just as it suits the character of the team.
Meanwhile, central defender Mario Hermoso will not be able to get involved in the small derby, he is serving a red ban. Since Jose Maria Gimenez is suffering from an ankle injury, Felipe and Stefan Savic should form the defensive couple. Joao Felix also has problems with his ankles, but Diego Simeone can draw a lot from the rest, the broad squad benefited the coach and the team last.
