Getafe vs Real Madrid
Competition – Spanish Primera
Stadium – Coliseum Alfonso Perez
Date: 25th April 2019
Kick-off time – 20:30 GMT
Getafe will look to continue their fairy-tale season that could end with them finishing inside the top four when they take on Real Madrid in this game.
The home side have been in fine form this season and are currently 4th in the league table, however, just two points separates them from Valencia who are also having a fine end to the season.
They play Madrid after an impressive 3-0 win over Sevilla in this very stadium and they would be keen on another giant killing that would send a strong message to their remaining opponents.
Getafe have won 8 of their last 9 home games in all competitions and Barcelona were the last team to beat them here so Real Madrid have a huge task ahead of them.
Madrid have enjoyed some sort of a resurgence since the reappointment of Zinedine Zidane as their manager and he will be facing one of his most difficult tests since his return in this game.
Los Blancos have secured a return to Champions League football next season after they opened up a ten points gap over Getafe ahead of this game.
They are just 4 points behind city rivals Atletico Madrid and it would be a thing of pride for them to finish second in the league table ahead of Atleti, which is one reasons they would be keen on winning this game.
Real Madrid beat Athletic Bilbao in their last league game and come into this game having won two of their last three games with one draw.
Bookmakers have priced Real Madrid up as slight odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game while Getafe will start a home game as underdogs which isn’t a regularity.
Goal markets point to a lively game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Karim Benzema is favourite to score the opening goal of the game followed by Gareth Bale and Jaime Mata.
This game gets underway at 20:30 BST.
