Result: Getafe 0-2 Atletico Madrid
Date: 22 September 2018
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Pérez
Atletico Madrid finally returned to winning ways in LaLiga after seeing off Getafe 2-0 at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.
Diego Simeone's men were pushing for a return to winning ways after dropping points in their last league encounters, although they defeated AS Monaco in the Champions League in the week.
Simeone got the start he had hoped as he his side went after 14 minutes, with David Soria deflecting Thomas Lemar's fierce strike into his own net.
The hosts managed to carve out a chance in the 29th minute through Damian Suarez, but Atletico defender Gimenez popped up with a timely block to deny the forward.
Unfortunately, that proved to be the final chance of the half as Los Rojiblancos went into the break with a one-goal advantage.
