Atletico Madrid v Getafe Preview, Primera La Liga, Saturday, 23rd November 2013

Atletico Madrid are playing like a side that has real potential of winning the Primera La Liga Title this season and with being only just 3pts behind current league leaders Barcelona Diego Simeone and his players will be fully aware that to keep those hopes alive they must win this game on saturday night.

Getafe are also playing well and although they have lost 5 times already this season they have still racked up an impressive tally of 20pts from their opening 11 games played and currently occupy 6th place in the league table and are right on track for a European place next season if they can continue putting up points on the board.

Atletico Madrid v Getafe Team News

Atletico Madrid Team News:

The hosts will be without their current top goalscorer for this game as Diego Costa continues to receive treatment for torn fibres in his thigh and this is obviously a major blow for the home side. Other than this though manager Diego Simeone has a full squad to choose his starting line up from which should see Adrian come in and lead the attack up front in what is likely to be a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Diego Costa is the clubs current top goalscorer so far this season with an impressive 13 goals from 13 matches played.

Getafe Team News:

The visitors have no reported injuries or suspensions for this match, so manager Luis Garcia will be able to play his strongest lineup for this one which is likely to consist of a 4-2-3-1 formation with Adrian Colunga coming back into the team to lead the attack up front.

Midfielder Pedro Leon is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 4.

Atletico Madrid v Getafe Match Betting Odds Market.

Atletico Madrd are the clear odds on favourites to win this game despite their current top goalscorer Diego Costa not being involved and their current best price of just 1/4 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) does look extremely short indeed.

The Draw has been the outcome in the last two meetings between the two clubs and certainly a possibility on saturday night with Atletico Madrid missing their star striker and Getafe having Calunga back, so odds of 21/4 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) could be a sensible cover play here.

Getafe are not expect to win this game and considering their last victory at the Estadio Vicente Calderón came back in 2010 it should come as no shock to see the online bookmakers having the visitors priced up at odds of 14/1 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers) to cause what would be a major shock on saturday night.

Atletico Madrid v Getafe Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Atletico Madrid should still win this game with the likes of David Villa, Adrian and Garcia all involved in the attack but their current price available is way too short to even consider taking as without Diego Costa they are certainly not as strong as they would be.

Getafe will obviously relish the opportunity to cause a huge upset by winning this game on saturday night and with the return of Adrian Colunga who will lead the attack up front for the visitors they do have a player that can score goals and Luis Garcia’s side could very well get at least one in this match.

The goal stats don’t see this game seeing many goals scored and without Diego Costa involved the case becomes even stronger so such markets like Total Match Goals, Under 2.5 Goals and Time of First Goal could be places to look at in the search for value.
