Real Madrid are not having the best of seasons, in fact they are still sitting 3rd in the league table. They will now make a really perilous trip where they will be hosted by Getafe on Thursday. Getafe have truly been the surprise package of the La Liga this season. They are currently sitting behind Real Madrid in the standings and they have been tremendous lately.

Spread: Getafe +0.5
Total: 2.5 Goals
Getafe (14-7-12) have been doing a stunning job in the La Liga this season, I can’t say this enough. They are coming into this match after a massive 0-3 home win over Sevilla. That win helped them overtake Sevilla in the standings and now Getafe are sitting 4th . Should they finish in that position they would get a ticket to the Champions League and all that added revenue. So they are highly interested to keep their spot. Getafe have been dominant at home lately, winning eight of their last nine.
On the other hand, Real Madrid (20-9-4) did not have a very easy job in their home match against Athletic Bilbao. But after a goal-less first half Benzema scored a hat-trick for a clean 0-3 win. Real Madrid have been in really solid form lately, losing just one of their last seven matches in all competitions (5-1-1). They are now sitting at the 3rd spot of the league table with 64 points, 10 points ahead of Getafe. They have not kept a single clean sheet on the road so far.
Real Madrid beat Getafe by 0-2 at home earlier in the season and have now won each of the last ten against Getafe. Real Madrid have also won in seven of their last eight trips here, but Getafe have been excellent this season and can certainly score at least once here.
I will take the Over 2.5 Goals on this one, as Real Madrid will probably concede. They simply cannot keep a clean sheet and Getafe have been excellent at home. There is very good reason in backing the Over 2.5 Goals here.
