Competition: La Liga

Market: Atletico Madrid win

Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport

Smelling a real chance to make a return to winning ways in midweek, Atletico Madrid will make the trip to the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez on Tuesday evening.

Starting with the hosts, while Getafe might have managed to hang onto their La Liga status with time to spare last season, Azulones find themselves in the midst of a real nightmare this time around. Already firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap, the Blues are now one of just two top-flight sides who are yet to get a single point on the board. With the mood in their camp at a real low, Head Coach Míchel will be more than aware that his side face another overwhelming test in midweek. Last seen over the weekend putting in another woeful display, Getafe were blown away thanks to a 3-0 drumming against Rayo Vallecano on the road. More worrying, along with Tuesday’s hosts still waiting to get a single point from any of their opening five La Liga contests, it should also be noted that Míchel’s side have managed to bag themselves just a single goal so far.

As for the visitors, only managing to open this year’s Champions League campaign with a point at home against Porto, Atletico Madrid would have also been disappointed to have played out another 0-0 stalemate over the weekend. However, dominating large spells against Athletic Bilbao, Diego Simeone’s side are still tipped as a leading pick to defend their La Liga crown this season. Marking their return from September’s international break with a deserved 2-1 victory against Espanyol earlier in the month, Colchoneros are unbeaten in each of their last 10 top-flight contests continuing on from last season. Holding a rampant record against Tuesday’s hosts and unbeaten against Getafe across any format since way back in 2011, Simeone’s defending champions should be smelling a real chance to pick up maximum points in midweek.
