Getafe vs Real Madrid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Thursday, 25th April 2019
Kick-off at 20.30 UK/ 21.30 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Real is virtually assured of a top-three finish, and is under no kind of pressure as far as their league standing is concerned. The team might like to gun for the runner-up spot, but frankly, the fans would rather the team concentrate on building a team for the next season. It’s funny to think of, but it seems as if the team has raised its level at this point in the season when every trophy is out of hand.
Getafe has been truly a revelation for the Spanish league this season. No one expected them to give a tough chase for the top-four spots, but now their dream is about to come true. They have a two-point lead at the fourth spot and need to defend it for further five match-days.

Getafe vs Real Madrid Prediction
Real faces a stern test this Thursday, and for new coach Zidane, a game to show his mettle to the fans. Getafe has been one of the best sides in the Liga this season, and a win against them on the road will definitely improve the currently dwindling fan-numbers.
H2h ties surely put Real as favorites. They won an astounding last ten encounters in a stretch, and 17 of the last 18 as well. At this venue, Real won the last four straight ties, and seven of the last eight. Moreover, Getafe was winless in four of their last six fixtures, whereas Real was unbeaten in six of their last seven.
Expect the fired-up Real to win this game. But their attacking style surely would give Getafe something to work on. And with their form this season, which saw the team finding the back of the net in 12 of their last 13 home ties, and scoring two or more goals in six of these last eight – BTTS is almost locked in this Thursday.
