Getafe vs Atletico Madrid Tips and Prediction
Between 2018 and 2020, Getafe placed eighth, fifth, and eighth in Spain’s top division. However, over the past two La Liga seasons, they have placed fifteenth, narrowly avoiding relegation the previous year.
The fans will be expecting an improvement in 2022-23 after the Deep Blue Ones only earned 39 points from their 38 league games in 2021–22, leaving them just a point ahead of Granada in 18th position.
Getafe has played six friendlies this summer, which is a lot for them. However, they have lost their last two games against Elche and Albacete without scoring, which raises some questions going into this match.
While playing four friendlies this summer, Atletico defeated Numancia, Manchester United, Cadiz, and Juventus while scoring an impressive 13 goals.
Last season, Simeone’s team finished third in La Liga, 15 points behind champion Real Madrid. They also lost in the quarterfinals of the Champions League and the last 16 of the Copa del Rey. This coming season, Atletico will undoubtedly try to compete with Real Madrid and Barcelona for the top spot in the table.
They have strengthened their team this summer with the additions of Nahuel Molina and Axel Witsel, while Saul Niguez and Alvaro Morata have returned to the Wanda Metropolitano after loan stints at Juventus and Chelsea, respectively.
It will be interesting to see if the capital giants are able to match Real Madrid and Barcelona this season, as both clubs appear to be in good shape heading into 2022–23. First-team departures include Daniel Wass, Hector Herrera, Sime Vrsaljko, and Luis Suarez.
Last year, Atletico defeated Getafe twice in the league, including a victory at Wanda Metropolitano in February. They haven’t suffered a loss to the Deep Blue Ones in the top division of Spain since November 2011.
Getafe has the potential to make this a difficult match for Atletico, but Simeone’s team is in terrific shape going into the new season, therefore we anticipate the Red and Whites to win their opening game of the 2022–23 season.
