Real Madrid vs Getafe La Liga LIVE Football Score 18 April 2021
Real Madrid will be aiming to make it five La Liga victories in a row when they travel to Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Sunday evening to take on Getafe. Zinedine Zidane’s side are currently second in the table, one point behind leaders Atletico Madrid, while Getafe occupy 15th position, just four points outside of the relegation zone
Getafe have finished eighth, fifth and eighth in their last three La Liga campaigns, but they are currently struggling towards the wrong end of the table, with a total of 30 points from 30 matches leaving them in 15th position, just three points clear of the relegation zone. There is no getting away from the fact that it has been a disappointing campaign for the club, and they will bring a five-game winless run into this weekend’s contest, including a 1-0 loss to Cadiz last time out.
Jose Bordalas’s side have actually only picked up one victory in La Liga since January 20, and the fact that their next two in the league are against Real Madrid and Barcelona is an indication of the seriousness of the situation that they currently find themselves in. Getafe’s away record this season is the second-worst in Spain’s top flight, picking up just 10 points from 14 matches, while they have lost their last three in the league against Los Blancos without scoring a goal.
Real Madrid have certainly had their problems this season, but it could be a very successful end to the campaign for the club as they are battling for two major trophies. Wednesday’s goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield saw them advance into the semi-finals of the Champions League courtesy of a 3-1 aggregate success, and they will fancy their chances of overcoming Chelsea in the last four to advance to yet another European Cup final.
Zidane’s team also picked up a huge result in La Liga last weekend as they ran out 2-1 winners over Barcelona in El Clasico to move into second position in the table.

Real Madrid make a short trip to the Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Sunday evening to take on Getafe in what is a must-win game for Los Blancos. Zinedine Zidane’s men are only one point behind fierce rivals Atletico Madrid and have their eyes fixated on a potential 35th La Liga title.
Real Madrid find themselves in incredible form, having just secured qualification to the Champions League semi-finals. They also emerged victorious in the recent El Clasico against Barcelona. Home side Getafe are winless in five straight games but can prove to be tricky customers on their day. They held Atletico Madrid to a goalless draw in March, and Real Madrid know better than to take their next opponents lightly.
