Atletico Madrid vs Getafe Match Preview
Getafe have an astonishingly poor goalscoring record against Atletico Madrid (see stats above) and improving it will be among their first priorities in this La Liga opener.
You have to count back 16 league and cup meetings to find the last time Getafe breached the Atletico defence, with the list of subsequent results proving the perfect illustration of just what Diego Simeone’s side are all about – because it’s chock full of 1-0 and 2-0 victories.
Although you would expect it to be more of the same here, there is scope for variation due to the vast changes in the Atletico squad this summer. Out have gone Diego Godin, Filipe Luis, Juanfran, Lucas Hernandez, Rodri and, of course, Antoine Griezmann.
The new arrivals, yielding a transfer profit of over £40million so far, are Joao Felix, Marcos Llorente, Mario Hermoso, Kieran Trippier, Renan Lodi, Hector Herrera and Felipe as Simeone builds a team he hopes will challenge for La Liga and the Champions League.
Getafe, of course, have qualified for the Europa League and even threatened to gatecrash the big boys’ party for a time last season, with manager Jose Bordalas doing a fantastic job during his reign of nearly three years which began in the Segunda Division.
The new-look nature of the Atletico squad could be a concern for their supporters here, but pre-season results have been very impressive and we are backing it to be business as usual at the Metropolitano.
