Getafe vs Real Madrid: times, TV and how to watch online
All the information you need to watch the 2021/22 LaLiga game between Getafe and Real Madrid at the Coliseum in Madrid on Sunday 2 January, 2022.
Real Madrid travel across the Spanish capital to face Getafe as Carlo Ancelotti’s side aim to extend their lead at the top of the table in Sunday’s early kick-off as LaLiga resumes after the winter break. Madrid currently hold an eight-point advantage over nearest challengers Sevilla with Betis a further five points adrift in third. Ancelotti has denied that the title is Madrid’s to lose but with Atlético and Barcelona out of the running – Diego Simeone’s side are 17 points off the pace and Xavi’s 18 – the Italian tactician will be quietly confident that he need only keep the ship steady to secure the championship in his first season since returning to the Bernabéu hotseat.

Madrid have lost just one of their 19 Liga games this season and are unbeaten since the start of October, winning nine of 11 in the meantime and crucially beating rivals including Sevilla, Real Sociedad and Barça over the period to exert a virtual stranglehold on the top of the table. Ancelotti has also masterminded wins in recent weeks with a severely depleted squad due to an outbreak of covid-19, a situation that has eased somewhat over the break with the return of Marcelo, Luka Modric, Isco, Marco Asensio, Rodrygo, David Alaba and Gareth Bale.
Thibaut Courtois, Vinicius, Fede Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga are the latest to have returned positive tests in the lead-up to the Getafe game and it remains to be seen if they will be included, with the French midfielder serving a one-game suspension at the Azulones in any case but Ancelotti can call on Casemiro, who served a ban of his own during the win over Athletic.
Getafe have been largely unscathed by the latest covid wave in the capital but Quique Sánchez Flores will have to contend without influential defender Djené, who is suspended, while the Getafe boss will wait for late fitness tests on José Macías, Vitolo and Chema Rodríguez. After a woeful start to the season during which Getafe lost seven on the trot, Sánchez Flores has the Azulones moving in the right direction: the hosts are unbeaten in five and have conceded only once in that run and will be looking to catch the runaway leaders cold in the Coliseum.
