Getafe vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Real Madrid are out of the title race in La Liga – they languish 13 points behind league leaders Barcelona and are also out of all cup competitions.
Recent league victories over Real Valladolid, Celta Vigo, Huesca, Eibar and Athletic Club, coupled with a loss at Valencia and draw at Leganes, do not carry great significance, although the return of boss Zinedine Zidane has revitalised the club and rejuvenated their confidence.
They travel to an in-form Getafe side, who are on course for their first ever Champions League qualification but are battling off stiff competition from both Valencia and Sevilla – whom they defeated last time out.
One to watch for Getafe: Striker Jaime Mata has been a revelation for Los Azulones this season – he has 14 league goals to his name so far this term and netted twice in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Sevilla. He is at 6/4 to score anytime here.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Karim Benzema has netted 30 goals this season including 10 in his last seven – he has scored each of Madrid’s last eight goals, a new club record, and is at 6/5 to find the net here.
Long shot: Real Madrid have failed to score in two of their last nine domestic games while Getafe have not conceded in their last two home games and have the strongest home record in the division. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 11/1.
