Getafe 10-men held league topper Atlético de Madrid on 0-0

Getafe 0-0 Atlético de Madrid: Atletico Madrid once again missed out on a chance in La Liga after failing to take advantage when Getafe played with 10 men with only a goalless draw.

The result seems to give Barcelona and Real Madrid a boost in the race to become league champions.

Real Madrid bounced back from behind to beat Elche 2-1 after Karime Benzema blasted home two goals late in the competition, closing the gap to just six points behind Atletico.

Barcelona can close the gap with just four points behind the leaders by beating this Comfortable Huesca.

Getafe had to play with 10 men when Allan Nyom was ruled out in the 70th minute before Luis Suarez’s effort hit the post and Moussa Dembele twice missed a chance to score.

They failed to find a solution to score, meaning Diego Simeone’s side have won just two of their last seven games in all competitions, while on Thursday they travel to Chelsea for the Champions League.

Atletico need to bounce back to turn a 0-1 deficit at Stamford Bridge.

“We did everything we could but the ball didn’t go into the goal. We were just content with grabbing one point,” said Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

“It was a match I was hoping for. However, one fixed point allowed us to move forward,” Simeone said.
