Real Madrid vs Getafe Preview

Real Madrid vs Getafe

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Santiago Bernabéu

Date: 19th August 2018

Kick-off time – 21:15 GMT

Real Madrid begin their La Liga campaign with this Madrid derby game against Getafe and Julen Lopetegui will be desperate to get his first competitive win as Los Blancos boss in this game.

Madrid have not made the right start under Lopetegui after they suffered a shocking 4-2 loss against city rivals Atletico in the UEFA Super Cup.

One thing that loss showed was that they will most likely need some new players and Florentino Perez needs to bring out the checkbook or they risk being left in Barcelona’s trail yet again this season.

This game is as difficult as it gets for Madrid as Getafe has proved to be one of the most physical and defensive team in the Spanish top flight.

The visitors narrowly missed out on Europa League qualification last season, after ending the campaign with the 3rd best defensive record.

Getafe has spent more than £20 million on reinforcements this summer, so we expect this season to be even better than their impressive debut campaign back in the top flight.

Getafe have got themselves ready for the new season by picking up 3 goalless draws and 5 straight clean sheets ahead of this match.

Real Madrid have won the last nine meetings between these two teams, however, both teams have found the back of the net in their last five meetings.

Real Madrid are heavy favourites with bookmakers to come out on top in this tie.
