Team News: Getafe
There is just the sole fitness concern for the Getafe boss José Bordalás to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Oghenekaro Etebo (Unknown Injury) won’t play. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Damián Suárez and Xabi Etxeita.
It looks as if Azulones could opt for a 4-4-2 system this time and select David Soria, Mathías Olivera, Erick Cabaco, Djené Dakonam, Allan Nyom, Marc Cucurella, David Timor, Nemanja Maksimovic, Mauro Arambarri, Jaime Mata and Jorge Molina.
Team News: Atlético Madrid
Atlético boss Diego Simeone has multiple availability issues to deal with. João Félix (Ankle Injury), Sime Vrsaljko (Knee Injury) and José Giménez (Ankle Injury) are not ready for selection. Mario Hermoso is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
From our viewpoint, Atleti appear most likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 system, going with Jan Oblak, Santiago Arias, Felipe Monteiro, Stefan Savic, Renan Lodi, Saúl Ñíguez, Thomas Partey, Ángel Correa, Marcos Llorente, Koke and Diego Costa.
We feel that Getafe may not find it easy to see themselves scoring against this Atlético Madrid side who we reckon will emerge victorious.
We’ve gone for a very even match with a 0-1 advantage for Atlético Madrid at the end of the match.
