Half-Time Report: Mario Mandzukic gives Atletico Madrid lead at Getafe

A Mario Mandzukic goal gives Atletico Madrid a 1-0 half-time lead against Getafe in their La Liga match at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

A Mario Mandzukic goal late on in the first half has given Atletico Madrid a 1-0 lead away at Getafe in this evening's La Liga match at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

The game began in untidy fashion, with the first chance coming in the ninth minute when Juanfran's cross into the box was teed up by Mandzukic for Mario Suarez, but the shot flew wide of the target.

Moments later, Medhi Lacen met a loose ball on the edge of the Atletico box, but the Getafe man's effort also whistled wide of the post.

Both sides continued trading half-chances throughout most of the first half, with the hosts performing admirably against the Spanish champions.

However, just when it seemed like it would be level at the break, Atletico broke the deadlock when Arda Turan's saved effort was met on the rebound by Mandzukic.
