Atletico Madrid vs Getafe 19/08/19

19 August 2019

Atletico Madrid and Getafe go head-to-head at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano for their 2019-20 La Liga opener.

The hosts have enjoyed a successful pre-season campaign having five triumphs in six warm-up matches this summer (W5, D1). It was an adequate response to the run of poor form from the final stage of last season that has seen Los Colchoneros fail to pick up a win in three consecutive LL matches (D2, L1). Still, the Wanda Metropolitano has been a fortress in 2019, as Los Rojiblancos allowed just one defeat in 12 home games across all competitions since the turn of the year (W9, D2, L1). Eight of those victories have been accompanied by a clean sheet, with five of them ending with the same 2-0 scoreline. What’s more, Atletico have outplayed Getafe to nil in all nine of their previous H2H meetings here, netting 2+ match goals on every single occasion.

Meanwhile, the visitors feel far more comfortable at home as just 23 of their total of 59 LL points they’ve collected last season have come on the road. Additionally, no team has played out more away draws than Getafe last term (11), with more than half of them ending with the same 1-1 scoreline (six). Also, they have scored one goal or less in four of their last five LL away fixtures, with three of a total of four goals they’ve netted in that period coming beyond the hour mark. Another frustrating fact for Jose Bordalas is that his side has failed to beat Atletico in all 15 of their previous H2Hs across all competitions (D2, L13).
