Getafe vs Atletico Madrid (La Liga, 26.10.2014)

There’s more to El Clasico for La Liga this weekend as Atletico Madrid face Getafe in an attempt to get back into the Champions League race. The bookmakers favor the visitors to win this match and not only because they are the current La Liga champions, but also as a result of the impressive Champions League win where they managed to score five goals in the second half and keep a clean sheet.

Getafe are doing quite well in La Liga, they have seven points from the last three matches and their late result is a deserved last minute win against Real Sociedad. Yoda scored both goals during extra time and kept Getafe with a positive goal difference. On Wednesday the team returned to training but without Arroyo, Leon and Vazquez nursing different injuries. Cosmin Contra divided the players in two groups and had the ones starting against Sociedad work different kind of exercises than the rest of the group. Getafe have the means to produce an upset, as the technician managed to save the team from relegation and even make them better.
Atletico Madrid lost only once this season, at the hands of Valencia, but Diego Simeone managed to pick the team up in time to destroy Malmo in Champions League with goals scored by five different players. During yesterday’s training session, Gabi, Tiago and Ansaldi made rehabilitation exercises and with no return date set, Simeone is left to hope it won’t take too much, especially for Gabi who has the better chances to feature in Sunday’s match. Atletico are the better team out of the two, and with all of the key players available you can easily bet on an Atletico win at 1.61 with Ladbrokes.

Getafe to win has 6.00 odds and a draw has 3.75 odds. Getafe looks a more organized team than they were last season, which could end up in not so many goals. Despite that 7-0 win from last season, Atletico always found it difficult to break Getafe’s defense, which outs value on the over 2.5 goals betting market. Yoda to score anytime has 4.50 odds, Mandzukic 2.15, Cerci 3.25 and Raul Garcia 3.00. We are going to bet 8 units on the second half with most goals at 2.10 with Ladbrokes odds.
