Real Madrid are enjoying a fine start to the season and are currently setting the early pace, sitting two points clear at the top of the table. They are the only team with a 100% record and look determined to reclaim the title following last season’s disappointment.
Los Blancos came from behind to claim a 2-1 victory over Getafe in their previous La Liga fixture. Jude Bellingham was heavily involved once again, netting a dramatic late winner after Joselu had struck the equalizer just after the restart.
The win over Getafe extends a superb record at the Santiago Bernabeu for Real Madrid, who have lost just once in their last 24 home matches, a run stretching back to April 2022. However a slight problem for Carlo Ancelotti’s men is that they are often unconvincing at the back, keeping just one clean sheet in the last five matches in front of their fans.
