Hot Streak at Risk
Real Madrid remains undefeated in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League. However, last weekend they ended up drawing in a match in which they were heavily favored (-275). That was enough for them to fall to second place.
As for Getafe, the Blues suffered a heartbreaking loss at home, which made them fall out of the top 10. Summing up, neither can’t afford to lose, making this a must-watch game. Los Blancos come in as the betting online favorites, but last season they suffered a lot when they visited the Alfonso Perez Coliseum.
Let’s check the latest Spain La Liga odds, stats, injury reports, and Spain La Liga lines for Getafe vs Real Madrid. We’ve plenty of Spain La Liga Vegas odds for you to consider.
Getafe: Not Afraid
Getafe is in fifteenth place thanks to a 2-1-4 record. They’re three points away from climbing to the top 10 or falling to the relegation zone. That should be enough for the Blues to go all-in right from the start this Saturday.
Curiously enough, they’ve performed better when facing title contenders, or teams considered dark horses, like Villarreal and Real Sociedad. Three weeks ago, they drew 0-0 to Villarreal and later defeated Real Sociedad 2-1.
Last week, they played host to Valladolid and lost 3-2. At some point, they were up 2-1 thanks to Borja Mayoral and Damian Suarez, who scored in the first half. However, the defensive unit couldn’t hold up in the second. Overall, the Blues have allowed 15 goals. Only Elche C.F. has allowed more, with 18. That must change if they don’t want to end in the relegation zone.
Here’s another thing that must change. The team’s top scorer is Gaston Alvarez, who plays centre-back. Mayoral, Enes Unal, and Munir El Haddadi must take a step forward. Mayoral used to play for Real Madrid and AS Roma, while El Haddadi used to play for Barcelona. In other words, the talent’s there.
The Blues offer a +550 price in the sportsbook to win straight up. Considering they only lost four of their last 20 games at home, that’s very tempting.
Real Madrid: Breather
Last weekend, Real Madrid couldn’t defeat Osasuna at home; the clash ended 1-1. Vinicius Junior scored the opener for Los Blancos, while Kike Garcia scored for Los Rojillos. Real Madrid won possession with 64 percent and took 22 shots in total, 14 more than Osasuna, but they weren’t effective in front of goal.
Midweek, they took a breather thanks to the UEFA Champions League, the team’s favorite competition. They played host to Shakhtar Donetsk and won 2-1. Once again, Junior scored the opener, while Rodrygo sealed the deal.
Karim Benzema, who has scored three goals in La Liga, recently returned from injury, making Los Blancos’ attacking unit even more dangerous. As if that wasn’t enough, players like Luka Modric, Antonio Rudiger, and Eden Hazard didn’t play against Shakhtar, meaning they’ll be at 100 percent for Saturday’s clash.
Keep in mind that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is out due to injury. Andriy Lunin hasn’t done a bad job replacing him, but he has spent a lot of time on the bench, meaning he will need a bit more time to reach his full potential.
As expected, Los Blancos dominate the soccer lines thanks to a -190 price. Considering they’ve won all their road matches so far, that’s also a very tempting deal.

Getafe vs Real Madrid Prediction
Real Madrid learned to suffer last season, and that hasn’t changed. Yes, they’ve won all their road matches, but they’ve also conceded in each game. Plus, two of their four road victories in La Liga have been by one goal. That said, I expect Los Blancos to return to the winning column this Saturday, but not without struggling; that’s why my soccer prediction is Real Madrid winning by one goal. I also expect Benzema to find the back of the net once again.
Score Prediction: Real Madrid 2, Getafe 1
