Real Madrid will entertain Getafe at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Saturday night as they look to earn all three points at home. Los Blancos managed to earn a 3-1 win over Chelsea in midweek which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.

Carlo Ancelotti will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and could make some changes to his first XI for this game. Marco Asensio and Nacho will play from the start while Federico Valverde drops to the bench.

4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Getafe


Thibaut Courtois will feature in goal for the Madrid giants after shipping in one goal versus the Blues earlier this month. David Alaba will resume his centre-back partnership with Nacho at the heart of Real Madrid’s backline.

Dani Carvajal will retain his spot at right-back while Ferland Mendy fills in on the other side as the left-back. Ancelotti will instruct his full-backs to be adventurous in the opposition half so that they can create enough chances for their teammates up top.

Eder Militao is suspended for this game. However, Lucas Vazquez will offer cover for the right-back position on the bench.

Ancelotti could opt for a midfield three of Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric as they try to dominate the battle at the centre of the park and engineer some clear-cut chances in the final third.

Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if required.


Vinicius Jr. will hope to put in a productive performance on the left wing while Marco Asensio gets a start as the right-sided wide player. Karim Benzema will lead the charge for the Madrid outfit down the middle after he bagged a hat-trick against Chelsea in midweek.

Both Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic will miss this game because of injuries. However, Gareth Bale and Mariano Diaz will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to impress in the latter stages of the game if needed.
