4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup Vs Getafe: Llorente And Vasquez To Start?

Real Madrid will be looking to dominate the La Liga once again when they take on Getafe on Saturday. It’s been an indifferent start for Los Blancos as they are currently sitting in the fifth position and will be adamant to close the gap with Barcelona who are at the top the table at this moment.

Real know a victory in this match would put severe pressure on Barcelona who are scheduled to face Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano. Zinedine Zidane’s side have enjoyed a healthy amount of possession in some games but their shaky start to the season could hand a lifeline to the Catalans who are currently chasing their third title in the last four years.

Zidane has a number of injury concerns but the squad depth he currently has should be enough. On the other hand, Getafe have started the season on a good note as they have collected eight points from the first seven matches and should provide a tough competition to Madrid.

Predicted 4-3-3 Real Madrid Starting Lineup Against Getafe

Defence

Keylor Navas has been a silent hero for the Spanish giants but suffered an injury in Costa Rica’s 1-1 draw with Honduras and is doubtful for this match. With Tottenham Hotspur next in the offing, Zidane is unlikely to risk him and therefore Kiko Casilla will be called up to do his duty.

Sergio Ramos will be at the heart of the Madrid defence. The Spanish international has the knack to score from set-piece situations and Getafe need to be aware of the fact.Raphael Varane has been improving by the day and will have another chance to prove his worth.

Marcelo will start on the left side while Nacho Fernandez will have his chance from the right side.

Midfield

Zidane could tweak his midfield setup keeping in mind the Spurs game. Marcos Llorente will start in the holding midfield role. The 22-year-old came through the Madrid academy and has been trying to cement his place in the starting lineup.

Isco has been the main striking force behind Real’s ruthlessness. The Spanish international will operate from a deeper position and his delayed runs into the box could prove to be a very handy affair. Dani Ceballos will complete three men midfield.

Attack

Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez will be on the two flanks to provide the width for the side. Cristiano Ronaldo will lead the charge from the front.

Here is how they might line up:
