Getafe and Real Madrid are facing each other at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez
Getafe and Real Madrid are facing each other at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez in both teams’ first games for the new 2020. We expect it to be a really competitive match, so let’s take a look in our La Liga predictions today.
Jose Bordalas must be aknowledged as one of the best managers in La Liga right now, because for a second consecutive season he’s turning Getafe into one of the most decent teams in the league. Last year he almost qualified the club for the Champions League and now they continue to do well – Getafe are 6th in the standings, just 2 points behind Atletico Madrid and the Top 4.
Getafe are not a team with stars in it or very expensive players, but what Bordalas successfully did is creating a very good atmosphere and a really united squad. Sometimes it’s even better than having a lot of stars, who are unable to creat a team, though.
Getafe have lost just four games so far in La Liga and it’s a proof for their quality.
On the other hand Real Madrid are desperate to start winning again after three consecutive draws in the league. Because of this Los Blancos are now two points behind the leader Barcelona. Zinedine Zidane and his players are aware – it’s time for them to start winning again. But it’s difficult at the Coliseum.
Most likely Real Madrid’s star signing during the last summer Eden Hazard won’t be avaliable once again. The Belgian winger is injured again, which is bad news for Madrid. Luckily for Zidane, he has a lot of options to choose from. Both of his Brazilian talents Vinicius and Rodrygo are eager to play and prove themselves.
That’s our La Liga predictions for the game between Getafe and Real Madrid on Saturday. This won’t be an easy start of the new season for Los Blancos and they are aware with this. They will need to be at one hundred percent here.
