Getafe face a formidable challenge in their 2020 La Liga (LL) curtain-raiser, as they take on Real Madrid at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, determined to snap an 11-game losing streak in top-flight H2Hs (D1, L10).
The hosts’ seven-game unbeaten LL run (W5, D2) suffered a blow on the brink of New Year, with Villarreal pulling off a narrow 1-0 home win to prevent Getafe from reducing a two-point gap on fourth-placed Atletico Madrid. Nonetheless, Jose Bordalas’ men have picked up four victories in their last five LL home matches, beating their opponents by at least a two-goal margin on each of those occasions. What’s more, they have shut their rivals out in all four of their previous competitive home outings, scoring two or more goals in three of those matches. An impressive home form might help Getafe bring their five-game winless run in top-flight home H2Hs with Real Madrid (D1, L4). It will be vital for Getafe to open the scoring here, as they’ve returned just four points from six LL games that have seen them concede the opener (W1, D1, L3).
The visitors will, meanwhile, be desperate to end a three-game winless LL run (D3), especially knowing that they’ve drawn a blank in both of their previous LL outings. Despite the fact that they come into this showdown unbeaten in their last four league road trips (W2, D2), Los Blancos have not been as convincing as expected away from home this term, with just 43% of their total league points coming on the road. Additionally, Zinedine Zidane’s men have scored only 39% of their LL goals away from home, netting one goal or less in five of their last seven LL away fixtures. On the other hand, they boast the joint-best defensive away record, having shipped just six goals in nine LL road trips so far this season.
