Zinedine Zidane's side lose ground in LaLiga title race after draw

Getafe 0-0 Real Madrid: Zinedine Zidane’s injury-hit side lose ground on leaders Atletico Madrid in enthralling LaLiga title race after goalless draw

  • Real Madrid were hit by numerous injuries to key players ahead of the match 
  • Relegation-threatened Getafe were very good value for the point they gained 
  • Zidane’s Los Blancos outfit only managed two shots on target across the game 

Real Madrid lost ground on Atletico Madrid in a tight LaLiga title race after they could only manage a 0-0 draw against relegation-threatened Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez on Sunday evening.

Los Blancos dominated the possession, but undoubtedly rocked by numerous injuries to key players, only managed two shots on target all evening against an obdurate Getafe side. 

Neither team could find the goal they wanted, with the result leaving Jose Bordalas’ outfit one point better off in their battle against the drop but not really helping Zinedine Zidane’s side in their bid to overhaul their city rivals.
