Real Madrid vs Getafe
Spain – La Liga
Date: Tuesday, 9 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium.
The Royal Whites are the reigning champions of the competition, and are trying their best to repeat the heroics of the past season. However, arch-rivals Atleti have simply been superb this season, and this has put Zinedine Zidane’s men under immense pressure.
The 13-time European champions are already placed third in the table, trailing seven points behind the toppers, and that too after playing two extra matches.
Suffice it to say that Zidane’s men have no option but to give their utmost on the pitch, and secure the win at any cost.
They do have the solace that they are at home this Tuesday, and are pitted against the struggling Jose Bordalas’s men, who are placed 13th in the table. Do also note that these guests have been dismal on the road for the past several weeks.
On top of that, the Los Blancos also have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years.
By the looks of things, expect Real Madrid to emerge victorious this Tuesday at the Alfredo Stefano Stadium.

Real Madrid vs Getafe Prediction
The Royal Whites orchestrated a 1-2 comeback win on the road the last match-day, against Huesca. In the meantime, Bordalas’s men lost 3-0 on the road the past game week, against Sevilla.
Going on, the Los Blancos were unbeaten in 12 of their past 14 overall fixtures, and they had won 16 of their former 21 appearances at home. Note that they are also on a 12-game winning run at home in h2h clashes.
On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in 14 of their past 18 overall matches, and they remained so in ten of their preceding thirteen road trips.
Taking these observations into account, expect Real Madrid to deliver a winning performance this Tuesday at their home.
