Atletico vs Getafe: prediction for the La Liga fixture
On February 4, Atletico will host Getafe for the La Liga clash. Do visitors have a chance to put an end to their losing streak? The answer is in our prediction.
Atletico can concentrate solely on La Liga now. Madrid got eliminated from the Champions League and even failed to get a Europa League play-off spot. After a defeat to Real in Copa del Rey, team has no other commitments aside from La Liga.
After 19 matches, Los Indios have 10 victories and four draws, delivering 34 points and a 4th position in the standings. In two latest matches, team secured victories over Valladolid (3:0) and Osasuna (1:0). Diego Simeone's men are disciplined on defense as always, they conceded only two goals from five latest matches.
Llorente and Savic will miss the upcoming game.
Getafe are unlikely to break through the Mattresses' defense. Only in one of nine latest matches the Blues managed to score two goals. Moreover, visitors suffered five defeats in a row. Capital club lost two consecutive games by the same score of 0:1.
Club's president Angel Torres voiced his support for Quique Sanchez Flores, who is desperately trying to save the team from relegation in his third reign as club's head coach. Visitors have one point less than they had after 19 matches of the previous season.
Munir el-Haddadi, Arambarri will miss the upcoming match.
Ставка Correct score 2:0
Atletico won 3 of 5 latest head-to-head matches
Ставка Goals in both halves - yes
In 3 of 5 latest matches of Atletico goals came from both halves
Ставка Goal in the first half - yes

Any capital derby may go either way, but we are not expecting a surprise this time. Diego Simeone's men should be able to get the game under control, which will lead to a comfortable victory.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) on Atletico
We are expecting a high-scoring game here. The Red-Whites are solid defense, but they usually score many goals in head-to-head matches. Moreover, in each of three latest head-to-head matches no less than three goals were scored.
Our second bet is on total over 2,5 goals
