Atletico Madrid vs Getafe for the Spanish La Liga championship match on Sunday at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
Next Sunday, 18th August 2019, Atletico Madrid and Getafe face each other on matchday 1 of La Liga (Spain). The match has kick-off at 21:00 at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium (Madrid).
Last season’s runners-up kept busy with the transfer market this summer and have been involved in big moves so far.
Although the Antoine Griezmann talisman changed sides with rivals Barcelona, Atletico has already found themselves a substitute by Portuguese wonder boy Joao Felix, who put pen to paper for a colossal amount.
Getafe had an impressive season and lost their place in the Champions League by no more than two points. The visiting team have lost just nine occasions throughout the season and have been able to rack up forty-eight goals on their behalf while conceding thirty-five.
With Atletico forming a formidable team with their new signings, it seems more than likely that Getafe will be the victim of that full force when travelling to Madrid this weekend.
Clashes between the two teams
All five previous meetings have seen Atletico win.
Their last meeting saw Atletico reach the top with a score of 2-0.
Getafe has conceded in the last five meetings.
The last ten clashes have seen only one team score.
Diego Simeone’s men failed to dethrone Barcelona for two straight years. However, the hosts have indeed built a very intimidating squad that seems able to compete with the best in Spain and Europe.
The home team is unbeaten in their last eight home matches and has scored ten goals in the previous six home matches alone.
Simeone’s latest signing, João Felix, is indeed improving from some preseason performances and is a great option to be mindful of in the last third.
