Real Madrid will aim to continue their good run of form when they welcome Getafe to the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium on Thursday in the Liga, knowing so well that a win will open a four-point lead over Barcelona on top of the La Liga summit.
Meanwhile, Getafe make the trip to the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium having extended their unbeaten record to four games with a win over Real Sociedad on Monday night
Eden Hazard is dropped from this clash following the knock he received against Espanyol in their last game.
Manager Zinedine Zidane will be without the likes of Lucas Vazquez and Luka Jovic as the pair are just returning from their injuries and there will be no need to rush them considering the number of players in his Arsenal.
The away team has no fresh injury concern ahead of the clash against Real Madrid and manager Bordalas could stick with the team which began the victory over Sociedad.
HEAD TO HEAD:
Real Madrid won the last clash against Getafe in an emphatic 3-0 win, the last two matches between both sides ended in a draw and a win for Real Madrid.
