Real Madrid is welcoming Getafe to Estadio Alfredo di Stefano in a postponed game of round 1 in LaLiga.
Real Madrid is in a slump, but they are pushing through somehow. Real has won only 2 of their last 6 games, including their last game against Huesca at home. Real was the dominant team in that game with 66% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. After conceding a goal in the 48th minute, Real Madrid has snapped out of their slump, and they have scored 2 goals, and Real Madrid has won this game 1-2. With 43 points, 37 scored goals, and 19 conceded goals, Real Madrid is in 3rd place in the LaLiga standings, and they have a chance to take over second place from Barcelona with a nice win here. Benzema is Real’s leading goalscorer with 10 goals and 5 assists, while Casemiro added 4 goals. Rodrygo, Carvajal, Valverde, Vazquez, Hazard, and Ramos are all injured, while Militao, Isco, and Odriozola are still questionable for this game. All these injuries are just part of the problem for Real Madrid right now, and the rumors that coach Zidane will be fired are getting louder. Real is playing in the Champions League soon, and they better get some consistency.
Getafe is also one of the teams in bad form, and they are struggling on both ends. Getafe has won only 2 of their last 9 games while losing 2 of their last 3 games. During their last 3 games, Getafe has scored only 1 goal while conceding 8 goals, and their defense is in shambles. Getafe has scored only 17 goals so far this season, they conceded 26 goals, and they are in 13th place with 24 points. In their last LaLiga game against Sevilla on the road, Getafe was terrible with only 24% of ball possession, 0 shots on goal, 1 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and only 64% of the correct passes. Getafe was hanging in the game in the first half, but they conceded a red card in the 54th minute, and they conceded 3 goals in the second half. Getafe has lost this match 3-0. Rodriguez has scored 5 goals for Getafe so far this season, while Mata and Cucurella added 3 goals. Hernandez added 3 assists. Poveda is injured, Chema is questionable, while Djene and Bordalas are suspended because of the red cards. Getafe is not playing well, and their descent has only just begun.
Getafe hasn’t won any of their last 3 games against Real Madrid, and they will really miss the players that are suspended. Real Madrid is far from their best form, but they are still a much better team than Getafe, on both ends. I’m taking Real Madrid at home to extend their winning streak.
