Competition: La Liga
Market: Real Madrid win
Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport
Looking to regain their spot at the top of the table this weekend, Real Madrid will make the trip to a struggling Getafe on Sunday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Getafe might have once again impressed many across Spain last season, The Blues are enduring a real crisis. Putting in another worrying display on home soi last weekend, José Bordalás’ side were hit with a 1-0 loss against Cadiz and they still hold just a four-point buffer over slipping into the bottom-three. Really failing to build off of that 3-0 victory against an inconsistent Valencia back in February, Getafe have failed to win any of their last five top-flight matchups. Facing what will be another stern test at The Coliseum Alfonso Pérez on Sunday night, it’s also worth highlighting that Bordalás’ men have recorded just a single win in their last 12 straight top-flight contests. Gaining a reputation for their extended issues in the final third, Sunday’s hosts have scored just a single strike in over 400 minutes of action.
As for the visitors, playing out a 0-0 stalemate away at Anfield earlier in the week, Real Madrid extended on their Champions League adventure on foreign soil. With the mood in their camp likely to still be at a real high, Zinedine Zidane’s men know that victory this weekend can see them reclaim their spot at the top of the La Liga table. Likely to still be boosted by that impressive 2-1 win against bitter rivals Barcelona in the El Clasico, the former French icon finds his side enjoying an extended 14-match unbeaten run on either side of the international break, a run that stems back to the end of January. Smelling what is a golden chance on their travels this week, it should also be noted that Los Blancos hold a rampant record against Sunday’s hosts. Winning each of their last four straight meetings against Getafe, we’re backing a similar outcome this weekend.
