Before going into this Thursday’s Premier League fixture, both teams have been involved in other games. Let’s check out the latest results that they have been getting to have a clear idea about their current form.
Recent form in all competition (last five matches): LDWDW
Azulones have been getting a mixed results recently, winning two, drawing two and losing once out of their last five. Their latest league fixture was positive though as they beat Sevilla 3-0.
That win puts Jose Bordalas’ side temporarily sitting fourth in current La Liga standings. In order to keep that top four seat, Getafe must take all three points this midweek against Madrid.
Recent form in all competition (last five matches) :WLWDW
Los Blancos themselves have been in a pretty good form in their last few games. Zinedine Zidane’s side were collecting three wins, one draw along with one defeat in their last five fixtures.
Madrid’s latest match was a convincing 3-0 home victory over Athletic Bilbao. This midweek, Los Blancos are set for another tricky test as they face top four candidate, Getafe.
Bordalas has some unavailable names for this midweek tie as Ndiaye and Antunes are still injured. Meanwhile, Dakonam is also out as he is suspended for this massive Thursday fixture.
There’s some doubts regarding Foulquier’s condition, though he might still be able to make the squad. The home team will be counting on Jaime Mata and Jorge Molina’s duet up front to get them goals.
Zidane also has couple of players out this Thursday as Sergio Ramos and Alvaro Odriozola both injured. Nacho will be taking Ramos’ spot in that central defensive setup, partnering with Raphael Varane.
Isco looks to get the no in that attacking trio along with Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. Madrid will continue to target all three points on their travel this midweek.
Head to Head Records:
The last five meetings between both teams have been dominated by Madrid as they won all of them.
Their latest match up was on August 20, 2018 at Santiago Bernebau which was won by Los Blancos 2-0.
Playing away won’t stop Madrid from trying to dominate the tie from start to finish. Zidane’s side are chasing that runners up spot to give them a target to fulfil until the end of this current season.
However, Getafe themselves also have massive ambition in finishing at that top four spot. Madrid should still be favorite to win this tie, but the home team have potential to produce a shock result.
Final Score: 1-2
