Real Madrid make the short trip to the south of Madrid to face local rivals Getafe this evening at the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Pérez in the eighth round of La Liga, with the game set to kick off at 9pm local time.
As it was reported earlier, Karim Benzema will miss this game so that he is 100% fit to play against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.
Therefore Federico Valverde, Rodrygo and Vinícius Júnior will most likely form the front three, a combination which was used by Carlo Ancelotti during the Frenchman’s injury.
Luka Modrić has recovered from the injury he picked up during the international break and is expected to start against Getafe.
Real Madrid vs Getafe predicted line-up:
AS predict that Ancelotti will field the following Real Madrid starting XI vs Getafe: Andriy Lunin – Lucas Vázquez, Éder Militão, David Alaba, Ferland Mendy – Luka Modrić, Aurélien Tchouaméni, Toni Kroos – Federico Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinícius Júnior.
