class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The hosts are on a terrible run of form but our tipster expects Sunday night's clash will be a tight, low-scoring match at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez
Real Madrid make the short trip to Getafe on Sunday evening in La Liga with Zinedine Zidane’s men aiming to continue their excellent recent form.
Last weekend saw them beat Barcelona 2-1 in the Clasico, a result which came in the middle of their successful two-legged Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool.
It is, then, no surprise to see Los Blancos as clear favourites to win against their less-illustrious neighbours from the south of the Spanish capital, who are very much involved in a battle to avoid relegation.
Getafe vs Real Madrid Latest Odds
Los Azulones have won just one of their last 12 matches and bet365 offer them at 5/1 (6.00) to claim three points this weekend.
The visitors are available at 8/13 (1.62) to record their 10th away win of the league campaign, with the draw priced at 11/4 (3.75).

Getafe vs Real Madrid Team News
Zidane is unable to call upon a number of players this weekend, with Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez, Eden Hazard, Sergio Ramos and Rafael Varane all injured, whilst Nacho Fernandez and Casemiro are both suspended.
Getafe have defender Erick Cabaco and striker Cucho Hernandez both out, and fellow forward Enes Unal is a doubt
Getafe vs Real Madrid Preview
Jose Bordalas’ side begin the weekend just four points above the relegation zone, with their lack of attacking prowess no doubt the reason for their struggles this season.
Getafe are the lowest scorers in the Spanish top-flight netting just 22 goals in 30 matches, with the side failing to score in eight of their last 11 league clashes.
Real Madrid might have problems with personnel at the back but will be buoyed after keeping a clean sheet against Liverpool in midweek, and a goal-shy Getafe side are unlikely to pose the Spanish champions many problems.
Los Blancos have the second-best defence in the division, conceding just 24 times, and they should be able to keep their opponents at bay.
Getafe vs Real Madrid Tips and Predictions
The visitors are offered at evens (2.00) to keep a clean sheet which should appeal, while under 2.5 goals and both teams to score ‘no’ looks like an excellent option at 21/20 (2.05).
