Commentary

That's all for tonight! Thank you for joining us.
Atletico Madrid will take this win and hope to continue on this trajectory for the rest of the season. They were unable to defend their league title win last season, with Real Madrid comfortably running away with it. Simeone's side will hope that they write a different story this season. Getafe, on the other hand, will not be happy with their performance in front of goal. They need to improve their finishing if they don't want to be dragged into a relegation battle again this year.
Atletico Madrid start their season off with a convincing win. It wasn't easy, but they managed to score three against an organised Getafe side and keep a clean sheet despite the hosts getting some good chances. Morata was the star of the show, scoring the first two goals. Griezmann scored the third ten minutes after coming off the bench. Felix came close to scoring as well, but he'll have to settle for the three assists.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: GETAFE 0-3 ATLETICO MADRID
90' + 2' Atleti's late free-kick at the edge of the box is taken by Griezmann, who goes straight for goal. His shot is right at Soria, and the ball hits him hard as he makes the save.
Y. Carrasco
Yellow Card
90' Carrasco gets a yellow for pulling Portu back whilst Getafe were on the attack. A very obvious booking and Portu is understandably not happy. The resulting free-kick doesn't lead to much.
89' De Paul attempts one from distance, but it's well wide! Final minutes here in Getafe.
86' Getafe will certainly be disappointed with their finishing today. They had eight shots, five in the second half, and not a single one was on target.
Á. Correa
João Félix
83' Felix should certainly be happy with his performance tonight. He is replaced by Correa.
Matheus Cunha
Álvaro Morata
83' Morata comes off to thunderous applause by the away supporters, making way for Cunha.
Mata
E. Ünal
81' And that's both Getafe strikers off as Unal is replaced by Mata.
Moisés Parra
Borja Mayoral
81' Parra makes way for Mayoral.
João Félix
Assist
75' Felix with a hat-trick of assists tonight, with a great through-ball to feed Griezmann.
A. Griezmann
Goal
75' GRIEZMANN GETS IN ON THE ACTION, AND IT'S THREE FOR THE VISITORS!!! He receives the ball just outside the box, takes a few touches to get himself more central, and somehow manages to shoot the ball in between two defenders to score.
71' Soira comes out to collect! It looked like Atleti were going to score a third with more combination play between Felix and Morata, but the Getafe keeper decided to run off his line and grab the ball.
68' Atletico have had two shots on target, one in each half. Both have resulted in goals. They've certainly been efficient.
Jaime Seoane
N. Maksimović
63' Seoane comes on for Maksimovic.
63' UNAL ALMOST PULLS ONE BACK! From a free-kick, Unal tries to curl one into the net, but it goes over the bar.
A. Griezmann
T. Lemar
62' Getafe defenders surely aren't happy to see this substitution, with Griezmann coming on for Lemar.
R. De Paul
Marcos Llorente
62' Llorente comes off for De Paul.
Y. Carrasco
Saúl
62' Niguez, who has been targetted by Getafe all game makes way for Carrasco.
João Félix
Assist
59' Felix did well to react and move the ball quickly to ensure that the opportunity was not wasted.
Álvaro Morata
Goal
59' IT'S TWOOOOO!!!! AND IT'S THE FELIX-MORATA COMBINATION AGAIN. Getafe lose the ball in such a key area and it's a critical mistake. Felix passes it onto Morata, who smashes the ball into the roof of the net.
Portu
Carles Aleñá
58' Alena makes way for Portu, who can offer a bit more of an attacking threat from midfield.
Carles Aleñá
Yellow Card
55' Alena gets booked for tripping Felix.
52' GETAFE CHANCE! They find some space, and Unal makes a run on the left with the ball. No defender is near him as he takes the shot, but it sails a bit over the bar.
48' It has been very stop-and-start so far in this half, with lots of tactical fouls and sloppy play.
46' The second half is underway!
Atletico need to remain calm if they want to get these three points and start their season off with a win. Getafe have been attempting to exploit the right-hand side, targeting Niguez and Reinildo, and it's worked thus far.
Atletico lead, courtesy of a Morata goal which came from a great through ball from Felix. Getafe's best chance to equalise came late in the half, with Mayoral hitting the cross bar with his left-footed shot from close range.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: GETAFE 0-1 ATLETICO MADRID
41' WHAT A CHANCE FOR THE HOSTS! Getafe get the ball on the right-hand flank, and the cross comes in for Mayoral. His shot slightly bounces, which isn't ideal, but it somehow still hits the crossbar, with Oblak nowhere near it!! So, so close to an equaliser there!
39' In the early stages of the match, Atleti were certainly seeing more of the ball, but now it's a bit more of an even affair in terms of possession. Getafe have had 44.4% while Atletico have had 55.6%.
38' ALENA HITS ONE! And it's close! He surprisingly attempts the long-range shot, and it's just wide. Though it looked like Oblak had it covered if it was on target.
36' Felix with the shot from right outside of the box! It's deflected and goes well wide as a result. The corner that follows doesn't lead to much for Atleti.
33' Felix receives the ball through a cross from the other side of the pitch after a throw-in, but he's offside again.
30' Time for a cooling break for the payers. Thirty minutes have passed, and Atleti are clearly the side that has been on top for most of this half.
28' Felix is in the box anticipating a cross, and he's pushed from behind. The fans want a penalty, but the ref deems it too soft and play continues.
25' Getafe have some possession in the final third, but so far, it hasn't led to anything. They seem to be attacking from the flanks and trying to find the head of either Mayoral or Unal with crosses into the box.
22' Both teams playing aggressive so far, and it seems like the referee is constantly blowing his whistle, with ten fouls so far! Tensions are high, and there is a lot of fighting spirit from all the players on the pitch.
E. Ünal
Yellow Card
19' Unal is booked for a bad foul on Reinildo.
João Félix
Assist
15' It was Felix with the assist who was able to shake his defender off and get the ball to Morata's feet. Great piece of skill from the youngster!
Álvaro Morata
Goal
15' GOAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL! That didn't take long! Atleti find the gaps and capitalise. They win the ball back in midfield and it's Morata whose left-footed shot finds the bottom left corner, giving the visitors the lead.
12' Good attack from Atleti! They get the ball into the box, and an attempted pass is blocked by a Getafe defender. However, the replay shows that Felix is obviously offside in the build-up.
9' Atleti are seeing a majority of the ball right now, but the home team's rigid 5-3-2 shape isn't letting much go through right now. It's still very early - let's see how long they can hold on.
7' Atletico go on the attack, but Niguez commits an offensive foul on Duarte in the build-up.
3' Savic fouls Mayoral in the early minutes by catching his ankle very late in his challenge. He somehow escapes a yellow.
1' And we're underway!
Players are on the field, and kick-off for both teams' first LaLiga match of the season is moments away!
Diego Simeone has faced Getafe 19 times as a manager in LaLiga without losing (W17 D2), his best unbeaten record against a single opponent in the competition.

Both Getafe and Atletico Madrid will be hoping to get their 2022/23 La Liga campaign off to the best possible start. Last season, Getafe finished just one point outside of the relegation zone, and they will be hoping that they aren’t in a similar situation this season. Atletico were 15 points behind champions Real Madrid last season, and the expectation this season is that they mount a more serious title charge.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of this La Liga fixture between Getafe and Atletico Madrid at the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez!
