Getafe vs Real Madrid Spanish La Liga Date: 2 January 2022, Sunday Kick-off at 13:00 UK / 14:00 CET Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Getafe made it five straight La Liga games without a defeat to escape the red zone. They will find it very difficult to maintain such a streak in the first game of the year as leaders Real Madrid come to visit Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Sunday afternoon.
Los Blancos have been by far the best team in the league in the first half of the season. They are deservedly eight points clear at the top of the standings with a record of 14 wins, 4 draws, and 1 defeat in 19 games.
The team led by Carlo Ancelotti finished the last year with a narrow 1-2 victory away at Athletic Bilbao.
Karim Benzema ended his phenomenal year in style, bagging a brace inside the opening seven minutes of the affair at San Mames Barria.
The French forward is the competition’s top scorer with 15 goals to his name so far in the season.
For the sake of comparison, the entire Getafe team notched no more than 12 goals in the opening 18 outings of the campaign.
This record keeps Getafe as the worst attacking team in the division. Nevertheless, we have to admit that the hosts improved their defensive showings significantly following the arrival of Quique Sanchez Flores on the bench.
Azulones shipped just one goal in the last five league matches and they could be a tough nut to crack for table-toppers here.
