Getafe vs Real Madrid: Match preview
Real will be looking to get back on the winning track after finishing 2019 with three consecutive draws. They are going to the outskirts of Madrid, near Getafe. They have a difficult task ahead of them, as Getafe is excellent this season as well. This team is equally fighting for the Champions League places.
Getafe team news:
Getafe is a big outsider in this match no matter what, and tradition does not support the home team. They have not beat Real in La Liga since August 2012. Still, Jose Bordalas’s team has been playing great this season. They are ranked sixth in La Liga with 30 points, just two points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid.
They have been unbeaten in the last nine games and have also gained the Europa League knockout stage. Getafe will be without the services of Mathias Oliver, who is suspended, while Kenedy, Enric Gallego and Markel Bergara are also expected to miss the match due to injuries. On the other hand, Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio are injured, while club captain Sergio Ramos will miss the match due to a suspension.
Probable lineup: Soria; Suarez, Djene, Cabrera, Nyom; Jason, Arambarri, Maksimovic, Cucurella; Molina, Mata.
Real Madrid team news:
With ten wins, seven draws and one defeat in 18 matches, Zidane’s team amassed 37 points.That is just two points less than the leader Barcelona, who is hosting the big rival Espanyol this weekend.
This team has been undefeated in all competitions since 19 October and appearance in Mallorca. Still, they have finished 2019 with three draws, scoring points with Valencia, Barca and Athletic.
Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio are injured while club captain Sergio Ramos will miss the match due to a suspension.
Probable lineup: Courtois; Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Mendy; Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos; Isco, Benzema, Rodrygo.
Getafe is more than capable of giving Real Madrid solid resistance on the home field, especially if we take into account the absence of some Real’s players. It is precisely because of Ramos and Marcelo’s absence on defense that we believe Getafe can score. The fact that Real has managed to save the net only 5 times in 12 appearances this season also supports us.
