Real Madrid vs Getafe (1-0): There is still a lot of League left, it is true, but it is also true that after the victory of Real Madrid against Getafe, the Whites have it in their face to end up conquering the title. Zidane’s men are four points above Barcelona with 15 to play and that today seems like a lot. The white team took advantage of Barcelona’s draw against Atletico Madrid.
Zidane’s men couldn’t beat Getafe until the 79th minute with a penalty goal from Sergio Ramos. A maximum penalty caused by Carvajal and that Olivera committed and that things of fate, the referees, and the VAR, in the 35th minute of the game, a penalty by Carvajal to Olivera went to limbo. An action that could have been decisive and that was not.
The game was not easy for Real Madrid because Getafe was Getafe as always and Real Madrid is Real Madrid for this return of the championship. He doesn’t play well, but he wins. The white team did not know how to impose itself until that minute 79 on a Getafe that went out to ‘eat’. The whites who, with a very slow game and with many failures, were unable to leave their own field.
The Azulon team overwhelmed Zidane’s team with Courtois as their savior with three stops, especially one for Etxeita. Madrid did not appear in the Soria area until the 23rd minute – except for a mirage in the form of a shot by Benzema in the initial minutes; when Vinicius had the goal in his boots, but Soria avoided it with a great save that he repeated minutes later to Isco shot. An occasion for Madrid was born from a penalty by Carvajal to Olivera who went into limbo.
Real Madrid vs Getafe: Sergio Ramos’ goal
The white team improved in the last quarter of an hour of the first half but came to rest without goals. The second half was like the first, Getafe overwhelming a slow Madrid, without ideas and committing many errors in the core and defense, where Mendy did everything wrong. Zidane, seeing that he had to react, removed Isco, Modric, and Vinicius from the field to enter Marco Asensio, Valverde, and Rodrygo. Three players who changed the face of Real Madrid. They gave him ball speed and physical strength and the white team was saved there. It is true that Getafe accused the tremendous physical effort and Real Madrid took advantage of it.
White chances were coming until in the 78th minute, Carvajal went down the wing and Oivera committed a penalty that no one from Getafe protested. Sergio Ramos did not fail and made it 1-0 on the scoreboard in the 79th minute of the game.
With the wind in their favor, Real Madrid played calmer, more comfortable against a Getafe that was no longer pushing as well or as much. That caused Zidane’s men even had some opportunities to increase the score. In the end, no more goals came and Real Madrid ended up winning a very complicated game that leaves the league title closer.
