Real Madrid will be desperate for all three points when they take on neighbors Getafe in the matchday 33 of the Spanish La Liga season 2015/16.

They have just taken 2 points from their last 12 matches and are currently bookies favorite to relegate to Segunda Division this season.

This will be a straight win for Real Madrid, but I expect them to do it comfortably. The Blancos are likely to go on attacking from kick-off, so the match is likely to see 2 or more goals in the first half.
