Zinedine Zidane bet on Carvajal, Varane, Ramos and Mendi in defense, and Thibaut Courtois was again under the door. Casemiro, Kroos and Modric acted in the midfield, and Isco, Vinicius and Benzema started at the top of the attack.
Getafe started the match with several attacks, but Courtois' good interventions kept the two zeros on the scoreboard. Real responded with a brilliant attack, in which Ferlan Mendy centered a shot on the ground from the left flank, Vinicius caught the ball, but the guard of the guests showed an enviable reflex and saved his goal.
The second half did not offer very accurate shots, but it was in it that the only goal in the match fell.
The winning goal for Real became a fact in the 79th minute. Daniel Carvajal was fouled in the penalty area, forcing the referee to award an 11-meter penalty kick. Behind the ball stood captain Sergio Ramos, who scored his fourth goal in the last six games of "Los Blancos".
The success was extremely important for Zinedine Zidane's team, as they were four points ahead of Barcelona. Getafe remains in 6th place, five points from the Champions League zone.
