Real Madrid travel to Getafe for the early morning La Liga action. Real will be looking to get themselves back on track after being knocked out of the cup midweek. Cristiano Ronaldo, Kroos, Bale, Rodriguez and Benzema will be looking to get Real back purring as an offensive unit as the team has struggled to take their chances in recent weeks. After winning twenty two in a row Real have now struggled to get themselves back on track. Carlo Ancelotti will look to the Balon D'or winner Ronaldo to lead by example here and put Getafe to the sword.
Getafe are one of the sides struggling in La Liga, their lack of goals is the problem with only five goals scored at home they are obviously not going to win many games scoring that little. Defensively though they have only conceded nine at home and did put in an excellant performance against Barcelona holding them to a 0-0 draw. Getafe have shown that they can pack the midfield and play good defence when pressed high by a side like Barca or Real. Tomorrow will be a huge ask but it is an early morning game and there is a chance Getafe could spring another surprise here.
Not a game I love here but i am taking the draw at half time. I think Getafe will just sit back and hope that Real's misfiring forward line continues to misfire. If Real score early of course they could roll Getafe but I think Getafe hold on long enough to make this one interesting for us.
