The Spanish La Liga season has thrown up many twists and turns up to this point, and while it may not be quite on the same level of the English Premier League in terms of regular chaos, there are definitely plenty of talking points to get through as this bizarre campaign ventures on into the month of February. Today, we’re going to take a look at a game between two sides in very different positions this season – Real Madrid and Getafe.

Real Madrid

Zinedine Zidane has often been hailed as a genius and a hero for what he’s been able to accomplish since turning from player to coach, but for whatever reason, things haven’t quite panned out for him and Real Madrid so far this season. Both on the pitch and off of it they seem to have issues embedded within the core of their squad and if he doesn’t fix it soon, we could get to a point whereby their local rivals are champions-elect with plenty of games to spare.

Team News

Rodrygo, Valverde and Hazard have all been definitively ruled out of this game whereas Ramos is unlikely to be available until April due to a knee problem. Militao will be able to return from a recent suspension but Vazquez, Isco, Odriozola and Carvajal are all fitness doubts.

Getafe

Getafe were once recognised as a rising force in the Spanish system but as the years have gone on, they’ve fluctuated in a way that has really highlighted the ongoing struggle that comes with breaking into the upper echelons of La Liga. This season is proving to be a bit trickier than they may have anticipated as they sit just four points above the relegation zone, but with a game in hand, they’ll go into this fixture with nothing to lose.

Team News

Arambarri is back after a recent suspension but Dakonam is banned after a red card in his last outing. As a result of that, Cabaco is being lined up to start due to the latter’s absence.

Factors to Consider

  • In their last meeting just a few weeks ago, Real Madrid beat Getafe 3-0.
  • Real Madrid have won two, drawn one and lost three of their last six games.
  • Getafe have won two, drawn one and lost three of their last six games.
  • Real Madrid have scored nine goals and conceded eight in their last six games.
  • Getafe have scored five goals and conceded 10 in their last six games.

Conclusion

Getafe are going to scratch and claw as the tend to do in many of their games this season, but we do think Real will start to turn up the heat now that they can see the La Liga title slipping away. We don’t think they’re going to blow the visitors out of the water by any stretch of the imagination but we do think they’re going to pick up all three points which, given how well Atletico are doing, is vital right now.
