Real Madrid VS Getafe Live Football Score 08 October 2022

Real Madrid will be bidding to return to winning ways in Spain’s top flight when they make the trip to Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Saturday evening to face Getafe. Los Blancos were held to a 1-1 draw by Osasuna in the league last weekend, which saw them lose first spot in the table to Barcelona, while Getafe will enter the match off the back of a 3-2 home loss to Real Valladolid. Getafe are in their sixth straight campaign at this level of football, finishing eighth, fifth and eighth between 2018 and 2020, but the last two seasons have been a struggle, claiming 15th and 16th respectively.

The Deep Blue Ones have found it difficult to show consistency in the early stages of this term, meanwhile, with a total of seven points from seven matches leaving them in 14th position in the table. Getafe recorded back-to-back wins over Real Sociedad and Osasuna after a heavy defeat at Valencia on September 4, but they were unable to build on the victories, losing 3-2 at home to Real Valladolid last time out. Quique Sanchez Flores’s side will be aware of the size of the task awaiting them this weekend, but they will be the fresher of the two teams, as Real Madrid were in Champions League action on Wednesday night.

Getafe have only actually lost one of their last three league games with Los Blancos and recorded a 1-0 victory in the corresponding game between the two sides last term, with Real Madrid only picking up one point from their last two visits to Coliseum Alfonso Perez in Spain’s top flight. Real Madrid, as mentioned, were in European action on Wednesday, making it three straight victories in the 2022-23 competition by beating Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 at Bernabeu.

Goals from Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior ultimately proved enough to overcome the Ukrainian giants, and Los Blancos are now in a commanding position in Group F ahead of their final three games in the section. Los Blancos have won 10 of their 11 matches in all competitions this term, but they were knocked off the top of La Liga last weekend, having been held to a 1-1 draw by Osasuna.

Vinicius Junior sent Carlo Ancelotti’s side into a 42nd-minute lead at Bernabeu, but Kike Garcia levelled the scores early in the second period, and the reigning champions were unable to find a second, which has left them second in the table, albeit with the same number of points as Barcelona (19). Real Madrid will travel to Ukraine next week to face Shakhtar in the European Cup, while they have the small matter of El Clasico next weekend at home to Barcelona, and it will be fascinating to see which team is at the top of the table heading into the break for the 2022 World Cup.

Getafe will have Luis Milla back from suspension for this match, and the 27-year-old is expected to come into the starting side in central midfield.

Both Mauro Arambarri and Jaime Seoane picked up injuries in the defeat to Real Valladolid last time out, which will rule them out of the contest with the Spanish champions.

Head coach Sanchez is expected to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack, with Enes Unal and Borja Mayoral again set to play as the front two, while Carles Alena and Angel Algobia should retain their spots in midfield.

As for Real Madrid, Thibaut Courtois has now missed the team’s last two matches with a back injury, and the Belgium international has also been ruled out of this match.

Ancelotti is not taking any risks with the goalkeeper, so Andriy Lunin should keep his spot in the side, while Dani Ceballos is definitely out of the contest due to a hamstring problem, which could potentially sideline him until the early stages of 2023.

Real Madrid are otherwise in strong shape heading into the match, and there is likely to be a return for Luka Modric, who was an unused substitute against Shakhtar due to a recent injury.

Real Madrid can move into first place in La Liga with just a draw on Saturday, but they’ll be expect to win as they travel to Getafe. Real are 6-1-0 on the season and trail leaders Barcelona on goal differential, while Getafe are in 14th place with seven points and a 2-1-4 record.

Getafe: Nothing significant here for Getafe other than Carles Alena needing to be cautious. He’s gotten four yellow cards so far this season, and one more will see him earn a suspension.

Real Madrid: Los Blancos have been without Thibaut Courtois as he deals with a nerve problem. Highly-rated Ukrainian goalkeeper Andriy Lunin has filled in across the last two games, allowing a goal in both. Still, even staying on that path should be enough for Real to get the win.

LONDON — It was as good a home debut as Matt Turner could have wished for. Not only did the United States men’s national team keeper keep the first clean sheet of any goalkeeper at the Emirates Stadium this season, but he did not do so by default. After a first half which he could have spent sat on a deckchair in his own penalty area, in the second half Arsenal’s summer signing was called into action as Bodo/Glimt tried to force their way back into the match after the break.

After 50 minutes of glorious inaction, Turner was called upon to keep Arsenal in the ascendancy. He delivered in style. Hugo Vetlesen’s initial shot had been blocked in the penalty area but the ball broke to Amahl Pellegrino, whose low drive went through the legs of both Gabriel and Rob Holding. That gave Turner precious little time to react but he dived quickly to his right, his parrying glove pushing the ball to safety.

The next time he had to make a save the game was already won but there was a clean sheet to protect. Again Turner had to be quick in his reactions, a low cross to the near post where his defense had allowed an unmarked Ulrik Saltnes to run across him. The Bodo/Glimt midfielder clipped a shot at goal, Turner’s glove was up quickly enough to slow its momentum towards goal, allowing Holding to clear on his goal line.

These were the sort of moments that made the 28 year old an All Star in MLS, where he was voted the league’s best goalkeeper in 2021. It is early days in the Premier League but the move to Europe does not appear to have dulled Turner’s reflexes. But then the questions that hung over him were never about his shot stopping.
