Soccer predictions this week for Getafe – Atl Madrid
Getafe and Atletico Madrid will go head to head at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez in a match from the 37th round of La Liga. Let’s take a look at it in our soccer predictions for this week, shall we?
Once again Getafe won’t be able to reach their dream of qualifying for the Champions League. For a second consecutive season Jose Bordalas’ team looked close to this goal, but being unable to walk the walk until the end. At this moment Getafe are 6th in the standings with 54 points, but just three points behind the 5th Villarreal. It’s still a good season for them, but just not as good as they wanted to be.
Despite of failing again to reach the Top 4, Getafe deserve a lot of compliments for their performance. They are still a very small club, which is doing great things in one of Europe’s best competitions. Being 6th in La Liga is still a major success for Getafe.
Bordalas’ team is without a win in its last four matches. In their last game Getafe visited Deportivo Alaves, but the game ended without any goals being scored – 0-0.
Atletico Madrid will try to keep the third place in a competition with Sevilla. Right now Los Colchoneros are third in the league with 66 points, but the 4th Sevilla have the same amount of points. Two wins in the last two rounds will guarantee Atleti the third spot.
Three wins and two draws – that’s how Atletico’s current form looks like. In the previous round Diego Simeone’s boys hosted Real Betis in the capital and they needed a late goal from Diego Costa to win. The Spanish international recieved an assist from Yannick Carrasco and put the ball in the net.
Two of Spain’s best teams are facing each other at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez. It’s Getafe’s last home game for the season, while Atletico Madrid won’t make it easy for them.
