Real Madrid travel to Getafe in the La Liga this weekend and it will be a vital game for both sides.

Real Madrid are back in the title race after two consecutive defeats for Barcelona and Getafe are in danger of getting relegated to the Segunda Division next season after a poor season.

Getafe are 19th in the league table right now and are winless in their last 12 outings.

With just six games left in their current domestic top flight campaign, Juan Esnáider’s side need to win most of their remaining games to survive relegation.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are full of confidence after their wins over Barcelona, Eibar and Wolfsburg recently.

Three-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo struck a hat-trick against Wolfsburg earlier this week and will be looking to add to his tally of 46 goals this season against Getafe.
