Expert Analysis and Prediction
There’s not a whole lot of sense in beating around the bush with my prediction n this matchup, seeing as how Real Madrid hasn’t lost a single game at home this season. I know Getafe has recorded a solid winning road mark (6-4-5), but Real Madrid will definitely be locked in and focused on getting the win in this matchup as they look to secure another league title. I’m expecting Karim Benzema to be the best player on the pitch in this clash and I’m expecting the superstar striker to lead Real Madrid to the convincing win.
