GETAFE VS REAL MADRID (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 25.04.2019

Getafe enter this round of La Liga (LL) matches in fourth place, and going strong at home in the league (W3, L1) since March. Last time here, a 3-0 thrashing of Sevilla saw two first-half penalties hit the back of the opposition net, and also marked the third time in as many home league wins that Getafe have won the second half to-nil.
However, the hosts will need to defy a poor recent H2H history against the ‘Galacticos’. In a troubling stat for them, three of Getafe’s last four LL home meetings with Real Madrid have seen them lose after trailing at half-time.
Real Madrid travel here winless in two LL road trips (D1, L1) having trailed 1-0 at half-time in both. Additionally, Real have also conceded first in their last three LL away games, scoring all but one of their six goals across that sequence in the second half.
Despite being in the midst of a minor slump, Real have won exactly half of the away league matches they have approached as favourites this season. Prior to their last two away games, Real had also won their last five LL road trips, though only one of those saw them win both halves.
Players to watchJaime Mata has been the first Getafe goalscorer in five of his team’s last six LL home wins. Meanwhile, Karim Benzema (RMD) has scored five goals in his last four LL away games – scoring at least once in each.
Stat attack: Getafe have avoided defeat in just a third (33.33%) of the LL home matches this season they have approached as outsiders.
Seven of Real’s last eight LL away games have produced over 2.5 goals and seen both teams score.
A clear majority (five) of those seven games have seen the first two match goals equally-shared.
