Why bet on Atletico Madrid?
As we already mentioned, Atletico Madrid need a victory in order to finish the current year at the top of La Liga. Until now, they have 32 points thanks to a 10-2-1 record; Real Madrid also have 32 points, but they have played two more games than Atletico Madrid.
Atletico’s only loss was against Real Madrid (2-0) a couple of weeks ago, but they just beat Real Sociedad 2-0, and they also beat Barcelona (1-0). They have scored 26 goals (third-best in the league) and allowed just five goals (best in the league).
Individually, Luis Suarez is the team’s top scorer with seven goals, while Angel Correa leads the assists department with five. Jan Oblak (goalkeeper) and Joao Felix (striker) are also having a very good season.
“Los Colchoneros” are a very well-balanced team. Defensively, they are very patient, and they also are masters of the counterattack.
Diego Simeone is one of the best managers in the world. He has been Atletico’s manager since the 2011-12 season, but he has won La Liga only once (2014); he knows it’s time to win it again, and the players back him up.
Atletico Madrid haven’t lost at home this season; they have a 6-1-0 record. They also have a 6-1 record against the spread at home and a 3-4 over/under record at home.

Getafe lost against Real Sociedad and Sevilla, but they managed to win against Barcelona, proving that they are more than capable of pulling the upset at Wanda Metropolitano.

Getafe have won just one game on the road (Cadiz). They have an 1-3-1 record; they also have an 1-2-2 record against the spread when playing on the road and a 3-2 over/under record also on the road.
Discarded Players and Projected Line-Ups
Joao Felix didn’t play against Real Sociedad due to injury, but Diego Simeone expects the young player to be back on the field next Wednesday. Defender Sime Vrsaljko should be back too.
Nevertheless, Ivo Grbic and Hector Herrera will be out due to injury, while Kieran Trippier will be out for the next 14 games due to suspension after violating FIFA’s gambling rules for players.
Atletico’s expected lineup is Jan Oblak, Stefan Savic, Felipe Monteiro, Mario Hermoso, Marcos Llorente, Sime Vrsaljko, Koke, Yannick Carrasco, Thomas Lemar, Joao Felix and Luis Suarez.
