Real Madrid were held for the first time in La Liga this season in their previous fixture, and they will be immediately looking to get back to winning ways this weekend against Getafe. However, the hosts will also be looking to recover, as they were beaten in their previous fixture.
La Liga Preview
There have been very few lows for Real Madrid throughout 2022, but last weekend’s draw against Osasuna would certainly rate among their biggest disappointments. Madrid were wasteful throughout that fixture in front of goal, and the tie ensured that they were overtaken in the league standings by Barcelona.
However, they will have the perfect opportunity to bounce back to winning ways this weekend. Madrid’s form this season remains rock solid, as they have won six of the seven fixtures that they have played. They have scored the second-highest number of goals, and have allowed just seven. But, they will need to ensure that a victory is picked up this weekend, as they can’t afford to allow Barcelona to open up an advantage.
Getafe come into this fixture in the bottom half of the standings, as they sit 14th in La Liga. They have picked up just two victories from the seven fixtures that they have played, and they have allowed the second-highest number of goals in the Spanish top-flight.
They saw an excellent run of form brought to an end last time out, as their two-match winning sequence was snapped following defeat against Valladolid. The goals in the 3-2 defeat for Getafe were scored by Borja Mayoral and Damian Suarez.
Getafe vs Real Madrid Head to Head
Real Madrid has only picked up one victory in their previous three matches against Getafe. That win was recorded in April, as they won 2-0 at home. However, this exact fixture last season saw Getafe run out 1-0 winners. Getafe has also avoided defeat in three of their previous four home fixtures against Madrid.
Getafe vs Real Madrid Prediction
Real Madrid don’t actually have the best record away from home against Getafe, and that could be a concern coming into this fixture. However, the number of goals that the home side are conceding this season will give them a chance, which means that we would still expect the Spanish champions to come out on top this Saturday.
