Football betting tipsReal Madrid is keen on scoring yet another hat-trick when they face Getafe. Expect the Los Blancos to score more than 2 goals as they struggle to try to topple other Primera Division contenders, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

 

 

Real Madrid

A decisive win and a major thrashing against Galatasaray, guarantees Real Madrid’s campaign in the Champions League. Likewise, the club’s impressive performance in Primera Division ensures the club’s bright future this season.

 
The Los Blancos shows no signs of slowing down. Recently, it destroyed Galatasaray with a 6-1 victory courtesy of Isco, Karim Benzema and of course, Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick. Amidst the chaos in the pitch, Umut Bulut was the only entity that prevented Real Madrid from having a clean sheet.

 

Powered by unstoppable pitch warriors, Carlos Ancelotti expects his men to carry the momentum as they face Getafe in the domestic league. Although the latter is neither a threat nor a rival, the club has another victory to clinch in order to compensate for the draw that they incurred against Villareal. Not only will it give them the opportunity to reach the ranking’s top spot, but also the chance to steal the spotlight from Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, which continue to remain undefeated.

 

Getafe

It seems like Getafe will have a hard time replicating their first victory over Osasuna. Pitted against Primera Division giant, Real Madrid, winning seems to be a futile effort. Getafe’s current form is neither satisfactory nor acceptable.

 

Occupying the 14th spot in the ranking, the club is just a few notches away from the relegation zone. Out of their last 5 matches, they have already lost twice, drew twice and only won once. Up against Real Madrid, the pressure becomes even worse as they will be playing in Bernabéu —the Los Blancos’ known territory.

 

The Verdict: Real Madrid to score a hat-trick

The battle against Getafe is no more than a breather for the Los Blancos. As mentioned, they should take such opportunity to compensate for their disappointing draw against Villlareal.

 
Real Madrid plays strong when they are at home. As a matter of fact, they won 13 out of their 20 home matches and scored more than 2 goals. Seeing another hat-trick either from Isco, Ronaldo, Benzema and who knows, Bale, is highly possible.

 

Unfortunately, for Getafe, they have been pretty unsuccessful in their away matches. Figures show that they lost 6 of their most recent away matches and they are in danger of being thrashed and pushed down to the bottom of the domestic league ranking.
