Real Madrid vs Getafe Prediction & Match Preview

Real Madrid vs Getafe
Spain – La Liga
Date: Tuesday, 9 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium.

Buoyed by a hard-fought 2-1 win over Huesca, Real Madrid will be looking to keep their La Liga title hopes alive when they take on Getafe at Alfredo di Stefano Stadium. 

Los Blancos showed character in their last league match, with the team coming from behind to beat Rojo Martin’s troops on the road, and, no doubt, they regained a much-needed confidence.

Even though both Sergio Ramos and Eden Hazard remain in the recovery room, home win should be considered as Zinedine Zidane’s troops are eager to melt Atletico Madrid’s advantage in the La Liga standings. 

Los Azulones, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Sevilla, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Real Madrid’s party in the local derby. 

Dakonam, who was sent off in the defeat to los Sevillanos, is sidelined through suspension.

Team News:

Madrid will again be without a number of first-team players for Tuesday's contest, with Rodrygo Goes, Federico Valverde and Eden Hazard all definitely out, while Sergio Ramos underwent a knee operation on Saturday and is unlikely to be unavailable for selection until April.

Lucas Vazquez, Dani Carvajal and Isco are also all doubts, while Alvaro Odriozola was injured against Huesca and now faces a battle to prove his fitness in time for the match.

Eder Militao will be back from a suspension to ease Madrid's concerns at the back, but Zidane has a problem in midfield as Toni Kroos's booking against Huesca means that the German is suspended.

Marcelo is an option to start in midfield but 20-year-old Antonio Blanco, who has been on the bench twice in the league this season, is being tipped to make his debut in the middle of the park.

As for Getafe, Mauro Arambarri will be available, having served a suspension against Sevilla, but Djene Dakonam is banned due to the red card that he picked up on Saturday.

Head coach Bordalas is expected to resist the temptation to make wholesale changes for Tuesday's clash, but Erick Cabaco is in line for a start due to Dakonam's absence.

Arambarri could replace David Timor in the middle of the park, meanwhile, but Jaime Mata, Carles Alena and Marc Cucurella should again feature for the away team in attacking positions.

Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Nacho, Varane, Militao, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Blanco; Vinicius, Benzema, Asensio

Getafe possible starting lineup:
Yanez; Suarez, Cabaco, Chakla, Nyom; Hernandez, Maksimovic, Arambarri, Alena, Cucurella; Mata
