Our football match prediction:
Atletico Madrid will be looking to bounce back from a shocking 1-0 loss to Espanyol when they host Getafe at their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on Matchday 18. Los Rojiblancos aim to keep their hopes of winning La Liga title alive and there is every chance they will go all guns blazing at los Azulones when the two teams face each other in a small Madrid derby. Diego Simeone’s men are eyeing their third consecutive win at home and we predict that they will return to winning ways in the Spanish top flight this weekend. Getafe, on the other hand, are on the right track to secure La Liga survival as they sit in 8th place in the standings ahead of their first match of the year, but beating Atletico Madrid away from home is easier said than done. The hosts want this in more than the visitors and they are likely to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match.

However, he was struggling to find his best form in the 2015/2016 campaign and it is no surprise he netted just 12 goals for Chelsea in the national championship.
