Live Match Real Madrid VS Getafe March 3 2018 Kick Off 19:45 GMT
Zinedine Zidane’s men may already be planning for next Wednesday’s match against PSG in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League. But Zidane will need to focus his team as Madrid have drawn three league games and lost one directly before European competition this season. They remain in third place in the league (51pts, W15, D6, L5), but Valencia sit just one point behind.
Getafe are coming off of a convincing 3-0 home win over Deportivo La Coruna earlier this week, and they have just one loss (W2, D2, L1) in their last five La Liga matches. With European qualification in their sights, they sit in 10th place (36pts, W9, D9, L8), just five points from sixth-placed Villarreal.
Madrid are likely to field an alternative squad ahead of this game. In addition to the upcoming Champions League clash against PSG, los Blancos could have up to three regular starters out due to injuries, Marcelo, Kroos, and Modric.
