Commentary

Minute   Description
That's all from us today folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
Atletico secure a hard fought victory over Getafe, with Koke scoring the only goal of the game. The visitors had a very strong side playing today and their quality players managed to see the game out, despite a very nervous finish after Getafe were awarded a penalty late on. However, Oblak produced a great save to deny Getafe an equaliser and they secured all three points. Atletico now sit six points clear above Real Madrid, with just one game remaining in LaLiga.
FULL-TIME: GETAFE 0-1 ATLETICO
90'+3 That's the final whistle!
90'+1 Portillo is shown a yellow card late on.
90' There will be a minimum of three minutes added time played.
88' Victory today should seal second spot for Atletico even if Real Madrid win later this evening, however their rivals do have a better goal difference, so if Atletico lose their final game of the season and Real win, it would see their rivals finish above them.
86' ATLETICO CHANCE! Torres with a great opportunity to double Atletico's lead which would well and truly wrap up the three points for the visitors. Correa broke quickly on the counter, his cross into the box was headed away, but it then fell straight to the feet of Torres around the penalty spot, who fires an effort at goal but it goes well wide.
83' Getafe are playing much better now, as Atletico begin to sit deeper and deeper which is inviting the hosts to come onto them. However, they don't really look like scoring, the penalty chance perhaps being their greatest opportunity to score tonight.
78' Oblak appears to have taken a knock to the head after gathering the rebound from the penalty, perhaps getting a nick on the head by the onrushing Getafe players. However, after some medical treatment it looks like he will be fine to continue.
77' PENALTY SAVED! It appeared to be a good penalty by Fajr, with the ball heading into the bottom corner of the net. However, Oblak is a world class goalkeeper and he pulled off a phenomenal save, much to the disbelief of the Getafe players.
76' GETAFE PENALTY! Angel goes down in the box after a coming together with Godin. It looks to be a very soft penalty as the striker went down very acrobatically with what looks to be very little contact inside the area, after nicking the ball away from the centre-back. However, the referee awards the penalty straight away, despite the protests of the Atletico players.
74' Pacheco with possibly his first touch of the game tries to play a ball back to his goalkeeper but he plays a terrible pass and it goes straight out for a Atletico corner! Luckily for the hosts, the corner by Gabi is equally has bad as it goes out of play before it gets to the penalty area and Getafe have a goal-kick.
72' Shortly after the final Atletico change, Getafe also make their final substitution, with Remy replaced by Pacheco.
70' Atletico make their third and final change of the game, with Koke coming off and he has been replaced by Correa.
67' As it stands here, Atletico will remain in second position in LaLiga on 78 points which is six points ahead of Real Madrid, with just one more game left to play. However, Real do play later on this evening and could cut the gap to three points once again. Meanwhile Getafe will stay in eighth position on 52 points and are likely to just miss out on European football.
65' Neither side have been able to carve open any chances to score in this second half, as the pace of the game has dropped and is very stop-start at the moment as the game is interrupted by substitutes and fouls by both teams.
62' Griezmann is the other Atletico player to head off the pitch, he has been replaced by Fernando Torres.
Atletico make their first change of the game with Simeone perhaps looking ahead to Wednesday's final now. Diego Costa is replaced by Kevin Gameiro.
60' Getafe make their second change of the game, with Flamini the man coming off and he has been replaced by Sergio Mora.
58' Gabi is now down after he has the ball smacked in his face by his own teammate! Partey was clearing the ball deep in his own half, but he strikes the ball straight at the Atletico skipper, who is receiving medical treatment. However, he should be fine to continue.
55' Another yellow card is shown here, with Mathieu Flamini the latest player to be cautioned after his late challenge on Filipe Luis.
Atletico continue to look comfortable, with Getafe not threatening to score an equaliser here. How long will Simeone leave it before he starts making changes, perhaps taking a few of their star players off in order to rest them for the Europa League final on Wednesday.
53' Getafe make their first substitution of the game, with Ndiaye the man coming off and he has been replaced by Angel Rodriguez.
49' Thomas Partey is the third player to be shown a yellow card in this game, for hhis strong challenge on Ndiaye.
48' Atletico have started the second half just as they did in the opening few minutes of the first half, they are controlling the ball and Griezmann has already found space behind the Getafe defence, but the linesman had his flag up for offside.
46' The second half is underway!
A game of few chances but it is Atletico who have the lead here after an early goal by Koke, following some poor defending by the hosts. Getafe grew into the game, but haven't really troubled the visitors and a lot of their possession has been in the middle of the pitch, not troubling the Atletico defence.
HALF-TIME: GETAFE 0-1 ATLETICO
45' That's the half-time whistle!
43' Despite their spell of possession, Getafe are struggling to create any chances at goal, with Oblak not yet having a real save to make and the two Getafe strikers haven't had many touches on the ball, especially Remy who looks very isolated at times.
40' The game is starting to become a little scrappy now and the tackles are starting to fly in, which is frustrating Atletico and especially their bench who are furious with a few of the decisions.
38' Not long until the break now, can Getafe get back into the game before the half-time whistle? Or, will Atletico double their lead and possibly wrap the game up.
36' Godin is the first Atletico player to be shown a yellow card after the defender voiced his frustration at a decision by the referee.
32' The first yellow card of the game is shown to Faycal Fajr, for his late challenge on Juanfran which has left the defender in a lot of pain on the pitch.
31' Getafe now have a free-kick of their own in an excellent shooting position, after Partey commits the foul right on the edge of the penalty area. Antunes fires an effort at goal, he gets it up and over the Atletico wall but their isn't enough pace on the effort and Oblak makes a routine save.
29' Atletico have a free-kick in a decent position to whip the ball into the box from the right. Griezmann is standing over the ball and is set to deliver the ball into the penalty area. However, he gets too much on the ball and the Getafe keeper comfortably gathers the ball in the air.
26' GREAT CHANCE! Costa should've scored and doubled Atletico's lead! It was excellent play in midfield by Koke and Gabi, with Costa then being set free through on goal and he only had the keeper to beat. However, he fires his shot straight at the keeper who made himself big and made a superb stop, but Costa should be scoring there.
25' Getafe win a free-kick just inside the Atletico half of the pitch, they take it short and Suarez fires a very ambitious effort at goal, which flies high over the crossbar. Wasted opportunity.
24' The pace of the game has dropped in the last few minutes as Atletico allow Getafe a spell of possession of their own, however the hosts have a very tough job of trying to break them down, as the visitors look very comfortable right now.
21' Getafe win their first corner of the game, as Antunes sees his cross into the box blocked by Juanfran. Set pieces could be very important for the hosts today, they are very good in the air and may find their opportunities limited in open play.
17' The striker is back up and running, he looks fine to continue. However, he doesn't look very pleased with a Getafe player who he feels tripped him up.
16' Costa is down injured right now, clutching his left knee and he looks to be in some pain. Let's hope it's not anything serious as that could put his involvement in the Europa League final in doubt.
13' Atletico are sending a few long balls up to Costa, looking for the striker to win the aerial challenges and set Griezmann off into space who is always lurking close by. Apart from the goal, Getafe have defended well against the two Atletico strikers so far.
10' It was poor defending by Getafe for the goal, just as they were starting to grow into the game themselves they switched off at the back and you can't do that against a side like Atletico, who have quality players throughout their team who will punish you.
8' Normally it is the other way around, as Griezmann turns provider to Koke today. The striker found space deep in the Getafe final third, then turned and played a simple ball to Koke, who was given so much time and space to pick his spot and fire Atletico into the lead.
GOOOAAALLL! ATLETICO LEAD! Koke with a superb finish to put Atletico into an early lead. The midfielder was given far too much space just inside the penalty area and he fired his low effort straight into the far bottom corner of the net. The goalkeeper had no chance of saving that!
This is much better by Getafe, they have now settled into the game and are enjoying some possession of their own. However, much of their play is in the middle of the pitch and they aren't getting close to the visitors defensive third.
7' Getafe are struggling to get a touch on the ball at the moment, they are being forced to sit deep in their own area as Atletico continue to dominate the possession charts. The home side are looking to break quickly on the counter-attack when they do nick the ball back, however their strikers are very isolated right now.
2' Early dominance by Atletico here, they got the game underway and are playing the ball nicely around the pitch, getting into good positions already. However, Getafe are getting lots of players behind the ball and are managing to keep the visitors out of their final third at the moment.

The team news is in, here is how the two sides line-up this afternoon...
Meanwhile Getafe sit in eighth and are looking to gain a place in the Europa League, despite being tipped for relegation at the start of the season. Getafe are unbeaten in their last five, winning four of those and will fancy their chances of extending their current run today against an Atletico side who will surely have one eye on the Europa League final.
Atleti's form in the league has been indifferent of late, they suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Espanyol last weekend, their first domestic home defeat at the Wanda Metropolitano. Their current run may be down to the upcoming Europa League final against Olympique de Marseille on Wednesday.
Atletico Madrid take the short trip across the city to play against local rivals Getafe in their penultimate La Liga game of the season. They are hoping to finish in second place above Real Madrid this season, who currently sit third, for just the 19th time in 86 seasons.
Good afternoon and welcome to our LIVE match commentary of the LaLiga clash between Getafe and Atletico Madrid.
