The defending Spanish champions will make the short trip across town for the Madrid derby at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
"I've only seen the match against Sevilla (that Getafe lost 2-1) and I liked it," said Mourinho on Saturday. "It's nothing new for me.
"I liked the coach [Luis Garcia] and how he organises his team and his ideas. I admire his work since I got to La Liga.
"It seems like a very well balanced team in all its aspects."
Mourinho went on to highlight Getafe's quality and playing style.
"They are well organised, defend well, are aggressive, come out well on the counter-attack, are strong with set pieces, have a very skilled team with a lot of players, almost all of the same level, and have a bench which is very well balanced with first-team players," explained the Portuguese.
"Since my arrival [in La Liga] the matches at Getafe have always been difficult, and tomorrow will be no exception."
Madrid were held to a 1-1 draw by Valencia in their opening game of the season last weekend.
