Our match prediction:
After making a great comeback in the Champions League quarter-final against Wolfsburg, Real Madrid will be looking to extend their winning run in La Liga to seven matches when they take on Getafe in the local derby on Saturday afternoon. Los Blancos have been in a thrilling form of late and thanks to a 4-0 win over Eibar the capital club melted Barcelona’s advantage in the La Liga standings to just four points. Zinedine Zidane’s men are high on confidence ahead of the Getafe game and seeing that los Azulones are on a 12-game winless run, we predict that the visitors will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football game. New Getafe boss Juan Esnaider will make his debut against Real Madrid, but we do not believe that he will have a reason for celebration after the match. You should bear in mind that los Blancos are after their seventh consecutive win over los Azulones.
