It’s been an amazing campaign for Getafe, who are on course to qualify for the Champions League. The Azulones have exceeded all expectations, and their extremely reliable home form has been a major part of their success. The hosts will be looking to pick up another three points in front of their own fans, and they will fancy their chances of upsetting Los Blancos, especially after breezing past Sevilla last weekend.
There are two Getafe players who have helped fire them up the table this season. Both Jorge Molina and Jaime Mata have been in excellent form, and both players could realistically reach the 20-goal mark this campaign. They’ve each recently added their name to the score-sheet with Molina netting three in his last two outings, whilst Mata struck for the first time since early March last weekend.
Each of these two players are also able to convert penalties, so you’re likely to get a good run for your money by backing either.
We’re going to side with Molina, as he has a little more experience, and having scored twice last week, he’s in excellent form.
The next of our Getafe vs Real Madrid betting tips is Jorge Molina to Score Anytime at 5/2 with Sporting Bet. This is a standout price in this market.
Only six sides have been to this ground and managed to leave with maximum points. Barcelona managed to win 2-0 in January, whilst Valencia did the same earlier in the campaign, but the hosts generally host their own here, and they won’t be overrawed by the visit of Real Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane’s side were much improved at the weekend, as they eased past Bilbao. Karim Benzema’s hat-trick proved the difference between the two sides, but the Frenchman will be desperate to improve his side’s form on the road. They’ve lost five times on their travels this campaign, and recently suffered a defeat at the Mestalla.
They won’t find this easy, although Vinicius could come back into the side, and that will give them added impetus going forward.
It’s going to be a busy summer at the club, and they will want to end this season on a high. They are still chasing down Atletico Madrid, and they have a ten point cushion on today’s opponent, but that doesn’t mean it will be easy. Getafe have conceded five goals in seven games here, and even if Real Madrid manage to squeak through, it is likely to be by a single goal.
Real Madrid have netted in every away game since mid-November, and they are highly likely to get on the scoresheet here. Getafe have kept just three clean sheets in eight home matches, and this could be a very entertaining contest.
BTTS is odds-on in this tie, but it’s highly likely to land, and it’s the first of our La Liga predictions for Thursday night. The best price is 7/10 with Ladbrokes.
Getafe have been largely underrated by the bookmakers this season, and their standout season has been a delight for punters. They are the outsiders here for obvious reasons, but despite losing to both Barcelona and Atletico here, it’s difficult to trust Real Madrid on the road at the moment.
They beat their neighbours 2-1 here last season, but Getafe have significantly improved since then, and their 3-0 victory over Sevilla was very eye-catching. Los Rojiblancos have been back in form recently, so it was a notable scalp for the hosts.
The home side don’t get many draws here, with just one of their home matches ending all-square, however, this game could feasibly end in a stalemate.
