Real Madrid host Getafe in an important La Liga clash this Saturday.
Los Blancos have already dropped six valuable points against Sevilla and Barcelona in their last few league games and cannot afford anymore slip ups if they want to win the title.
League leaders Barcelona have seemingly got themselves back on track after a shaky start and Rafa Benitez’s side need to respond now.
Real Madrid have a very good record against Getafe and will look to continue their good run of form against the away side.
The Spanish giants are going through a rough patch at the moment. After a solid start to the season, Rafa Benitez’s men find themselves in a downward spiral.
Following the defeats to Barcelona and Sevilla, Madrid are now set to be eliminated from the Copa Del Rey despite winning their last match against Cadiz. Los Blancos will be punished for fielding two ineligible players in Cheryshev and Mayoral.
New manager Rafa Benitez is under tremendous pressure and is hanging on to the job by the skin of his teeth.
Another negative result could draw the curtains on his career as the Real Madrid manager.
