Getafe - Atletico Madrid Betting Preview: Back both teams to score in the Madrid derby

Our man in Madrid, Phil Kitromilides believes neither side will keep a clean sheet given Getafe's strong scoring record at home and Atleti's firepower up front
Sunday night sees Atletico Madrid make the short trip down the road to face Getafe in a derby which should make for an interesting encounter. Getafe have been on a quietly-unspectacular run which has seen them go six games unbeaten, during which time they have amassed four wins and two draws.

Atletico, meanwhile, missed the chance last week to move back into second as they could only manage a draw with Valencia. Though los Colchoneros' home form has been imperious, on the road Atleti have been less convincing and have won just two of their last eight away games.

BetVictor offer them at 21/20 (2.05) to claim the win, while Getafe can be backed at 29/10 (2.10) with the draw priced at 5/2 (3.50).

Looking at Getafe's results this season, it is impressive to note the frequency with which they score in their home matches.

Indeed, of the 14 league matches they have played at home, Geta have only failed to score once.

Having netted against both Barcelona and Real Madrid, Getafe look likely to score again on Sunday evening, and backing both teams to score at 10/11 (1.91) looks appealing.

Getafe have scored in each of their last 10 home matches, while Atleti always look likely to get on the scoresheet making this a solid selection at an attractive price.

For a value bet, try backing Getafe to score in both halves at 19/4 (5.75) which, given their propensity for scoring at home, might just prove to be a shrewd move.
