This Wednesday, Getafe hosts Atletico Madrid in a La Liga encounter where both teams will play for prestige, having largely achieved their seasonal objectives.

Despite this, Atletico Madrid needs just a point to guarantee fourth position in the standings.

Getafe has been one of the most inconsistent teams this season, with a fluctuating form that has seen them alternate between strong and weak performances throughout the campaign.

Recently, they have struggled, conceding two consecutive losses, including a defeat to relegation-threatened Cadiz. In that match, a solitary goal by Ruben Alcaraz from the penalty spot secured the win for Cadiz. Interestingly, Getafe's matches have often been low-scoring affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last four home league games.

The match against Cadiz also saw a flurry of yellow cards, a common occurrence for Getafe this season. Currently, Getafe has managed just one win in their last six league games, indicating their struggle to find form.

On the other hand, Atletico Madrid, under the guidance of Diego Simeone, have had a solid season, though they might have hoped for more. While there is a slim theoretical chance for them to climb to third or even second place, it is highly unlikely given the current form of Girona and Barcelona.

Nonetheless, Atletico is in good form, having recorded three consecutive wins. Their latest victory came against Celta Vigo, with Rodrigo De Paul scoring the decisive goal in the dying moments of the match.

Away from home, Atletico has also performed admirably, winning four of their last six matches. They have won five of their last six league matches, underscoring their strong finish to the season.

Historically, Atletico Madrid has dominated Getafe, remaining unbeaten in their last 24 matches against them in all competitions.

In terms of team news, Getafe will be without several key players due to injuries. Borja Mayoral, Domingos Duarte, Gorka Rivera, Juan Iglesias, and Mauro Arambarri are all sidelined.

Atletico Madrid also has some absentees, with Nahuel Molina, Thomas Lemar, and Vitolo unavailable. Additionally, Jose Maria Gimenez and Mario Hermoso are major doubts.

This match is likely to be a tight, low-scoring affair, but with Atletico's current momentum, they are expected to come out on top.

Forebet predicts a win for Atletico Madrid with under 2.5 goals scored, reflecting the recent form and historical dominance of Los Colchoneros over Getafe.
