Our match prediction:
Getafe and Atletico Madrid take on each other at Coliseum Alfonson Perez in the local derby. Los Rojiblancos came from behind to beat Eibar at the weekend and they will be looking to keep their title hopes alive with a triumph over los Azulones in the suburbs of Madrid. Getafe are on a three-match losing run in La Liga and given that they produced an awful display in a 3-0 loss at Malaga, it is not difficult to predict that they fail to put an end to the negative trend on Sunday. Atletico Madrid need to keep on winning if they are to stay in the race for the trophy and considering that Diego Simeone welcomes Juanfran, Diego Godin and Filipe Luis back to the starting line-up, we are tempted to put our money on the Estadio Vicente Calderon outfit this time out. Los Rojiblancos are eyeing their sixth consecutive win over los Azulones.
