Getafe vs Real Madrid: Predicted line-ups, kick off time, how and where to watch on TV and online
arlo Ancelotti couldn’t have asked for a better first half of the 2021/22 LaLiga Santander season, with his team sitting comfortably at the top of the table, yet he now turns his attention to the new year with Real Madrid facing an away trip to Getafe to kickstart 2022.
Los Blancos will resume their domestic campaign on January 2, with the club a healthy eight points clear of Sevilla at the LaLiga Santander summit, whilst Getafe are involved in a battle to avoid the drop after their years of overachieving.
A COVID-19 outbreak within the Real Madrid camp has put a number of players in doubt for the trip to Getafe, although there is some positive news on this front. Thibaut Courtois, Fede Valverde and Vinicius tested positive for the virus prior to the New Year, but have since returned negative tests and could be involved on Sunday.
However, Eduardo Camavinga is ruled out of the trip, having tested positive for COVID-19 and having picked up a suspension.
