Getafe vs Real Madrid betting preview
Real Madrid are definitely among the most in-form teams in the world at the moment. The Blancos made a slow start to the season but they are now firmly back in business.
As they prepare to face Getafe in La Liga on Saturday, they’ll be going into the game on the back of a strong record. Zinedine Zidane’s side hasn’t lost since January, a record that proves their invincibility.
Having also just eliminated Liverpool to qualify for the semi-final of the Champions League, Real Madrid’s confidence is currently over the roof. That coupled with last week’s win over Barcelona has made the Blancos strong contenders for the title.
They sit only a point behind table-toppers Atletico Madrid and a win on Sunday could see them usurp their rivals at the top of the table, depending on the results of the Rojiblancos.
Unfortunately, though, Real Madrid will have to do it without a number of players. The Blancos were missing a few players when they played both Barcelona and Liverpool last week.
Sergio Ramos, Lucas Vazquez, Raphael Verane and Eden Hazard are all out injured and are not expected to feature against Getafe on Sunday.
The home side also has its own problems. Getafe have won just once in their last 12 matches in the league and their form has been a real source of worry. They are also just three points above the relegation zone and are, therefore desperate for points.
That means Real Madrid cannot underestimate them. This is a game between two teams with important missions, Real Madrid fighting for the title and Getafe battling to avoid relegation.
Betika has a 1.73 odd for punters who pick Real Madrid to win, while a win for Getafe is also priced at 5.60. Meanwhile, a draw is priced at 3.70.
