Getafe vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Getafe were edged out 1-0 at Villarreal last time out to end their seven-game unbeaten La Liga run – in which they had won five games.
Real Madrid have undergone a turbulent campaign so far but are unbeaten in 13 across all competitions – winning eight in that time – with just one defeat in their last 19, at Real Mallorca.
Zinedine Zidane’s side sit two points behind Barcelona at the top of the table but have drawn their last three successive matches.
The visitors are unsurprisingly favourites for this encounter at odds of 5/6 with a Getafe victory priced at 16/5 and the draw available at 27/10.
Madrid have eight clean sheets in 13 and 10 in total all season, so under 1.5 goals at 5/2 appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 10/11.
A ‘double chance’ on Getafe to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 19/20 while a Madrid win/draw outcome is at 1/5.
If you fancy the Madrid side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 7/4.
One to watch for Getafe: Angel Rodriguez has already equalled his La Liga goal tally of eight for the campaign from last season and has 12 in total in 2019/20. Is at 33/10 to score here.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Karim Benzema netted a highly credible 30 goals last campaign for Madrid and already has 16 from 23 in the league this time out. Is priced at 59/50 to find the net in this game.
Long shot: Madrid have kept eight clean sheets in 13, while Getafe have conceded just twice in their last seven games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 10/1.
