Real Madrid have stuttered in the defence of their La Liga crown, having already dropped points an astounding eight times in 21 games. Such inconsistencies have meant that Los Blancos are lagging behind neighbours and league leaders Atletico Madrid, who are seven points ahead with a couple of games in hand. Zinedine Zidane’s men, though, returned to winning ways this past weekend with a 2-1 win at Huesca. Getafe, on the other hand, have endured a dip in their levels this term as well. Having established themselves as top six hopefuls in each of the last two seasons, the Azulones have been well off those standards so far in the ongoing campaign. In fact, Jose Bordalas & co. have managed to win just six games till date, which means they are 13th with 24 points on the board, just four points outside the drop zone.

The corresponding fixture last season saw Real Madrid eke out a narrow 1-0 win, courtesy a Sergio Ramos penalty in the 79th minute. Ahead of the latest meeting between the two sides, The Hard Tackle takes a closer look at the encounter.

 

Head coach Bordalas is expected to resist the temptation to make wholesale changes for Tuesday’s clash, but Erick Cabaco is in line for a start due to Dakonam’s absence.

Arambarri could replace David Timor in the middle of the park, meanwhile, but Jaime Mata, Carles Alena and Marc Cucurella should again feature for the away team in attacking positions.

Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Nacho, Varane, Militao, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Blanco; Vinicius, Benzema, Asensio

Getafe possible starting lineup:
Yanez; Suarez, Cabaco, Chakla, Nyom; Hernandez, Maksimovic, Arambarri, Alena, Cucurella; Mata

Real Madrid vs Getafe build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

Inconsistency has characterised Real Madrid’s campaign so far. Zidane’s side looked to be turning a corner when they strung five wins together in December but since that run was broken at Elche (1-1), it’s been just three wins from six played. It subsequently leaves them seven points behind leaders Atletico Madrid but having played two games more than Diego Simeone’s men. At home, they’ve suffered three losses while picking up six wins; their most recent game against Levante ended a four-match winning streak when the visitors ran out 2-1 winners, that should give Getafe — the other Madrid club — some confidence.

José Bordalás’ team need every positive vibe going their way as they go into this game on a three-match winless run (two losses and one draw) with both of those recent defeats coming on the road (5-1 v Athletic Club and 3-0 v Sevilla). In fact, they’ve won just twice away from home all season, and even those victories were against sides below them in the table (2-0 v Cádiz and 3-1 v Elche). Also against them is Getafe’s record at their Madrid neighbours; one win from 15 previous visits, and that came in February 2008 when Ikechukwu Uche’s effort handed Michael Laudrup’s men a famous 1-0 win.
