Real Madrid vs Getafe Preview
The final game of this matchday in LaLiga again features table-topping Real Madrid. They are back at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano, a modest venue but one that looks increasingly like it may be soon hosting a league winners party. With Barcelona continuing to slip up, Real Madrid will be 4 points clear with 5 to play if they can see off Getafe here.
They do have a 100% record since the restart and will complete a 6 point swing that has seen them take control of this title race if they win here. They can’t afford to fall into the trap of thinking the job is done though. Los Blancos still have to visit San Mames this weekend which will not be easy at all and anything short of maximum points from this fixture would give Barcelona hope again.
It’s never straightforward against Pepe Bordalas’ Getafe. Despite struggling to find their feet again following the restart, this is still a Geta side that has only lost 1 of their last 7 league fixtures. They got their first win since the resumption by beating Real Sociedad 2-1 last time out to push themselves back towards the Champions League race but Europa League qualification for the second season running is starting to look like a more realistic target now in truth.
It’ll be interesting to see what kind of team Bordalas picks here. Some coaches have opted to rest a host of key players in their most difficult fixtures and effectively prioritise games where they see more potential for picking up points. There is some logic in that but they do have a couple of big players to bring in given neither Djene Dakonam nor Jorge Molina started their Monday night game.
We might see some light rotation from Zinedine Zidane too with two tough games coming in the space of four days. The likes of Sergio Ramos, Casemiro and Karim Benzema should start again though with Zizou keen to maintain a core spine to this side in every game, something that wasn’t the case the last time Los Blancos clinched the title.
Real Madrid vs Getafe Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Real Madrid
Getafe are always awkward to play against but Real Madrid don’t really look like a side that is going to drop points at the moment. While opposing teams have all enjoyed good spells against them, Los Blancos just have the touch of extra quality in the final third and a ruthless streak which ensures they see off opponents and it’s likely to be a similar story here against a Geta side, which for all they’ve achieved, has failed to beat ‘big three’ opposition since returning to LaLiga in 2017.
