How to watch and stream Getafe against Real Madrid in the United States, United Kingdom and India
Real Madrid are set to face Getafe in a La Liga derby on Saturday at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez. After dropping points against Osasuna last weekend they have conceded the number one position in the league table to Barcelona. Karim Benzema missed a penalty and that proved to be costly for Los Blancos. However, they were back to winning ways in midweek, emerging triumphant over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.
Meanwhile, Getafe suffered a narrow home defeat to Real Valladolid in their last outing. They have been pretty inconsistent with their form in the opening phase of the campaign and have just seven points from an equal number of matches. Quique Sanchez Flores knows that there is very little margin of error against Real Madrid as they will be hungry to reclaim top spot.
