Real Madrid visit Getafe just days ahead of their crucial Champions League match against Tottenham and after a long FIFA break which has allowed Los Blancos to recover key players Marcelo and Karim Benzema. Knowing that the schedule is going to get quite busy for Madrid, Zidane might make some rotations in this one in order to keep some of his starters like Kroos or Modric fresh for the following games.
Getafe predicted XI: Guaita, Suarez, Dakonam, Cala, Antunes, Bergara, Arambari, Jimenez, Fajr, Ndiaye, Molina.
Real Madrid predicted XI: Casilla, Nacho, Varane, Ramos, Theo, Casemiro, Isco, Ceballos, Asensio, Ronaldo, Benzema.
However, this is still a must-win for Madrid. Barcelona will visit Atletico’s Wanda Metropolitano later this Saturday and Los Blancos will most certainly try to put pressure on Messi and Co. ahead of such a tough away game.
Carvajal, Keylor Navas, Gareth Bale and Mateo Kovacic are not available for this game as they are still recovering from their injuries.
