Atletico Madrid 1/3 to beat Getafe in Saturday’s La Liga clash

Competition: La Liga

Market: Atletico Madrid to beat Getafe

Odds: 1/3 @ Bet365

Spain’s top league continues this weekend with yet more games that will be full of excitement and intrigue. The league table has seen a lot of movement in recent weeks, but Barcelona remain at the top as they continue to tighten their hold on the La Liga trophy. Every side in the top half is desperate to chase them down, and Atletico Madrid are no different, and they host Getafe on Saturday.

Atletico Madrid have been in very good form this season and they are Barcelona’s biggest challengers. After 17 games they have won 10 times, drawn six and lost just once, while they have scored 25 goals and conceded just eight times. All of this has resulted in the side picking up an impressive 36 points. However, they have still nine points behind Barca at the top and, despite winning four of their last five games, their most recent ffailurecame in their last match as they were beaten. Atleti need to return to winning ways and quickly if they are to put pressure on the runaway leaders.

Getafe have been in good form this season and they are looking to poach an unlikely spot in the Europa League. After 17 games they have six wins, five draws and six defeats, while they have scored 22 goals and conceded 16 times. This has culminated in Getafe picking up 23 points, meaning they are just four behind Villarreal in sixth. With all of this in mind, we are backing Atleti with odds of 1/3 from Bet365.
