Nobody expected Real Madrid to be just four points behind FC Barcelona a month ago, but the Catalans' form has dipped lately and now Madrid have a chance to put some pressure on them and see if it pays out at the end of the season.
Zidane's men visit Getafe in what should be a manageable match for them after beating Wolfsburg last Tuesday. Getafe are fighting to avoid relegation but they have been terrible lately, sacking coach Fran Escribá in the past week.
It will be extremely important for Madrid to get the game out of Getafe's reach as soon as possible, and Zidane is not expected to make many rotations today. Casemiro, Ramos and Danilo are out of the squad list and that means that either James or Isco will make the starting XI in the midfield line. Varane will also have a chance to start for the first time since he picked up the muscle injury with France.
Location: Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, Getafe, Spain.
Kick-off time: 16:00 PM CET, 10:00 AM Eastern.
