Real Madrid – Getafe
The current leader in La Liga Real Madrid will try to move a step closer to the title when they host Getafe on Thursday. Let’s preview this match at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano in the capital.
Real Madrid are absolutely flawless since the end of the COVID-19 quarantine – five wins from five games played. Because of Barcelona’s mistakes away from home Los Blancos are now two points ahead the Catalans at the top of the league. Right now Real Madrid are the number one favourites of winning the La Liga title.
In the previous round Real Madrid had a visit to Espanyol in Barcelona which they won with 1-0. The winning goal was scored at the end of the first half. Karim Benzema made a marvelous assist to Casemiro who put the ball in the net behind Diego Lopez’ back. It was an amazing goal by Real Madrid. In the second half Los Blancos kept their advantage, while Zinedine Zidane picked the Brazilian duo Vinicius and Rodrygo from the bench.
Despite of few poor results since the restart of La Liga Getafe are still having a chance to finish 4th and qualify for the Champions League for a first time. At this moment they are 5th in the standings with 52 points, but just two ponts without the 4th Sevilla. Chance for Top 4 is still there, but Getafe need an improvement – they won just one game since the league got restarted.
This game was in the previous round against Real Sociedad at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez. Jaime Mata was the hero for Jose Bordalas’ team, scoring twice in La Real’s net.
What can we expect from the La Liga clash between Real Madrid and Getafe on Thursday? Surely Los Blancos are the favourites here. They are perfect since the league was restarted, so it’s going to be very difficult for Getafe here.
