  /  R47

Real Madrid continue to amble through the latter weeks of the LaLiga season, this time drawing 0-0 with Getafe away from home.

2018/2019 La Liga


Match Report

Real Madrid are without a win in three LaLiga matches away from home following Thursday's goalless draw with Getafe.

Zinedine Zidane's side offered scant consistent threat at Coliseum Alfonso Perez, as the hosts battled to a point that keeps them in control of their own destiny in the race for the Champions League places.

It could have been even better for Getafe, who have only won one of their past 19 league games against their neighbours, had Keylor Navas not produced an excellent double save in the second half to keep the scores level.

2' MISS! Benzema's shot wide out

Isco releases Benzema through on goal in the right inside channel with an incisive throughball. The Frenchman takes on the strike first time on his right foot, but fires his attempt wide of the post. A huge opportunity spurned by the visitors.

36' CHANCE! Casemiro steers an effort but blocked

From the resulting corner Casemiro steers an effort towards goal from Isco's delivery, but Olivera is there on the line to save his team with a vital clearance.

39' CLOSE! Benzema's shot saved

Bale surges down the left flank before cutting a low ball back towards Benzema in the middle. The Frenchman takes the strike on his left foot, although the ball is behind him as he pulls the trigger. His effort proves to be a straighforward save for Soria.

54' NICE TRY! Carvajal's shot saved

Getafe clear the danger from the corner, only for Carvajal to take on the strike from 20 yards. He connects well with his attempt, striking towards the top corner, but Soria gets across to make a diving stop.

73' Great saves from Navas!

DOUBLE SAVE! Navas keeps the scores level by producing two solid stops for the visitors. Suarez is allowed too much space down the right flank and he cuts the ball back for Molina. The forward fires a low effort towards the bottom corner, but Navas gets down to beat it away. Mata gathers the rebound and composes himself before going for goal, only for the Madrid keeper to hold firm once again.
