Real Madrid dominated Getafe in a fairly closed derby (1-0). A good result before heading to Manchester City next Wednesday.
Thanks to a goal from Marco Asensio, the largely overhauled Real Madrid dominated Getafe 1-0 on Saturday at the Santiago-Bernabéu for the 34th day of La Liga, and maintain their good momentum four days before his trip to Manchester for the Champions League semi-final second leg (Wednesday at 9 p.m.).
Numb at the start of the game, Real Madrid found their rhythm somewhat in the second period, once the starters preserved entered the game, and Marco Asensio took the opportunity to unlock the counter in the 70th minute, with a strike from the left from the outside of the surface.
Vinicius thought he doubled the lead in the 76th minute, but his goal from the right was canceled for an offside position. And Asensio almost scored a double in stride, but his diving header (78th) was superbly captured by David Soria.
Thanks to this success, Real temporarily recovers its second place in the standings, lost last weekend to Atlético Madrid, who play Sunday in Elche (4:15 p.m.). FC Barcelona is now obliged to win this Sunday evening (9:00 p.m.) on the ground of its neighbor Espanyol to ensure the coronation this weekend.
