Current Form
Azulones suffered a 2-1 loss to Cadiz CF away on 12 May as they extended their winless run to two matches in the Spanish top-flight.
Getafe are also winless in their last two matches at home in the league having recorded one draw and one defeat at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.
Meanwhile, Atletico emerged as 1-0 winners over Celta Vigo at home on 12 May as they extended their unbeaten run to three matches in La Liga - three successive wins.
The Mattress Makers have won two of their last three away matches in the league while the other game ended in a defeat as the visitors.
Team News
Getafe players Juan Iglesias, Domingos Duarte, Borja Mayoral and Mauro Arambarri could be absent due to their injuries, but the club has no suspension worries. 
Atletico, on the other hand, also do not have any suspension concerns, but Nahuel Molina, Thomas Lemar and Marcos Paulo are on the club's injury list.
"It is an important win, it was needed," Atletico manager Diego Simeone said after his side's victory over Celta.

"Between the international break, the games against Leganes, Barcelona and Qarabag [in the Champions League], it was a long wait for a win. But that is why we worked like this today. The team showed once again that it can suffer, and that they do not mind sitting back to defend a result.

"We also had chances ourselves -- like when [Celta goalkeeper] Sergio saved from [Antoine] Griezmann. Celta are strong at home, and had scored in all their other games."
Getafe and Atletico played to a 3-3 draw in their last meeting in La Liga and the game took place at the Estádio Cívitas Metropolitano on 19 December 2023.
Therefore, the Mattress Makers are undefeated in their 22 league games against Azulones having recorded 18 wins and four draws.
