Getafe vs Real Madrid Match Preview
Despite their dominance in Europe, the failure of the Royal Whites in the La Liga have always been a thorn in their eyes. Barcelona have delivered eight league titles in the last eleven years, and Real had to contend with just two.
They just cannot extend this streak any longer.
This season seems to be the best opportunity for Zinedine Zidane’s men to go after the domestic crowns considering the struggles Barca are going through right now.
At this halfway point of the season, Real are trailing by just points behind the Blaugrana, and a satisfactory performance in the second phase of the league campaign should fetch the Los Blancos their elusive title.
Getafe vs Real Madrid Prediction
Getafe were on the road the last match-day, and were defeated 1-0 by Villarreal. The red card given to the guests early in the second half might have played a big role in the loss though.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid were once again held to a draw in the league, as they played hosts to Athletic Bilbao. A win was necessary for Zidane’s men after their stalemate at the Camp Nou, but unfortunately, their barren run extended another match-day.
This weekend, the three consecutive draws by Real Madrid will play a significant role in determining the outcome of the match. Despite playing a better game than that of Barca, Zidane’s men are placed below them in the table, and this will definitely drive them to toil hard for a win somehow.
Moreover, in terms of sheer talent, experience, and stature, Real are dimensions above Getafe, and it really is not that much of a challenge for the 13-time champions to go after the three points if they are in the mood.
They are also placed second in the table, and have lost just a single game so far in their league campaign. Furthermore, the team is unbeaten in their last thirteen straight fixtures, and in their past six fixtures on the road.
Most importantly, Los Blancos had won ten of the preceding eleven h2h clashes, and recorded 17 of the prior 18 such wins. At this venue, they won four of their last five visits, and seven of their last nine as well.
Considering these observations, Real Madrid are tipped to record a win this Saturday in the La Liga.
However, understand that Getafe had been one of the best teams in the competition the last season. They have also maintained that kind of form this time around too.
In fact, Getafe had won six of their previous seven overall match-ups, and were unbeaten in 17 of their prior 19 appearances at home.
Moreover, at home, they have secured a combined scoreline of 9-0 from their previous three games, and the only two losses they suffered here at this stadium this season had come against Barcelona, and the other in the Europa League.
Taking into account these additional information, it’s adjudged that, with the aid of the home advantage, Getafe should find the back of the net at least first. Thus the BTTS option seems very promising this weekend.
