Real Madrid 1/4 to beat Getafe in Saturday’s La Liga clash
Competition: La Liga
Market: Real Madrid to beat Getafe
Odds: 1/4 @ Bet365
The international break comes to an end this weekend as the clubs across Europe and the world return to duty. Real Madrid travel to Getafe on Saturday as they look cut the gap on those above them having taken just 14 points from seven games, a paltry total considering the talent in their team. Getafe, on the other hand, sit 12th in the table following a solid start.
Getafe have been in solid if unspectacular form this campaign taking eight points from their seven games. Their last three games have seen them earn one win, struggle to one draw and suffer a single defeat. Their current position in the table means there are no immediate relegation danger, but a win on Saturday would really aid their survival bid. Getafe have scored nine goals so far, but conceded seven times, and the prospect of keeping Real Madrid quiet in front of goal will be one of their biggest challenges this season.
The visitors, on the other hand, have been in fairly poor form which has seen the fans become impatient with the double Champions League winners. Four wins from seven has seen Los Blancos to just 14 points, meaning they are already seven points behind Barcelona, who are in fantastic form. A loss against Getafe is unthinkable as it would surely see them fall further off the lead, while it would also see them lose to a side that they are expected to beat comfortably.
Even though Madrid have struggled recently, the smart money backs an away win considering their immense talent. As a result, Bet365 are giving odds of 1/4 for Real Madrid to beat Getafe on Saturday.
