Atletico Madrid is welcoming Getafe to Wanda Metropolitano in round 16 in the Spanish LaLiga.

Atletico is having the best season in years, and they are at the top of the LaLiga table with 32 points, 26 scored goals, and only 6 conceded goals in 13 games. Atletico has 3 wins in their last 3 games, and they have scored 8 goals while conceding only 1 goal in those 3 games. In their last LaLiga game, Atletico was playing against Real Sociedad on the road, and they have had 41% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 6 shots inside the box, and 78% of the correct passes. Atletico was the better team in this game, and they were defending well, and they were able to score 2 goals in the second half. Atletico Madrid has won this game 0-2. Suarez is the leading goalscorer for Atletico with 7 goals, while Felix and Llorente added 5 goals each. Trippier and Correa have each added 4 assists. Grbic is still in quarantine, while Herrera is still questionable. The latest news from Atletico Madrid is that Diego Costa will be leaving the team in January, but his destination is still unknown. I think Atletico is the biggest favorite to win LaLiga this season, and they would absolutely deserve it.

After 7 games without a win, Getafe is now on a 3-game streak without a loss, while winning 2 of those 3 games. Getafe is outside the relegation zone, but only by 2 points. Getafe is now in 13th place with 17 points, only 12 scored goals, and 15 conceded goals so far. In their latest LaLiga game, Getafe was hosting Celta Vigo, and they have had only 38% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 0 big chances created, and only 71% of the correct passes. After getting ahead in the 7th minute, Getafe conceded a penalty kick in the 17th minute, and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. Getafe has scored 5 goals in their last 3 games while conceding 2 goals, and there are some signs of improvement in their game. Rodriguez is the leading goalscorer for Getafe with 4 goals, while Mata and Hernandez added 2 goals each. Hernandez also has 3 assists. Mollejo is questionable for this game, while Cabaco, Nyom, and Suarez are all suspended because of the yellow cards. I think Getafe will end the season outside the relegation zone, but that’s about it from them this season.
