How Real Madrid could line up against Getafe

How Real Madrid could line up against Getafe

Real Madrid are again likely to be without the services of Thibaut Courtois for Saturday’s La Liga contest with Getafe.

The Belgium international has missed his side’s last two matches against Osasuna and Shakhtar Donetsk with a back problem and is unlikely to be risked for this contest.

As a result, Andriy Lunin is set to continue between the sticks, while Dani Ceballos will definitely be absent for the Spanish champions due to a long-term hamstring problem.

Luka Modric was an unused substitute for Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Shakhtar in the Champions League, having only just returned from injury, but the Croatian could be back in the starting side here.

Head coach Carlo Ancelotti is expected to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack for this match, meaning that Antonio Rudiger might have to accept a spot on the bench once again.

Rodrygo was on the scoresheet against Shakhtar but could be rested from the start here to allow Modric to come into the side, which would see Federico Valverde moved into the front three.

Fit-again Lucas Vazquez is pushing for minutes at right-back, but Dani Carvajal is set to start once again, while Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior are certainties in the final third of the field.

Real Madrid possible starting lineup: Lunin; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Tchouameni, Kroos; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius
