La Liga is now Real Madrid’s to lose after Barcelona went on a run of three successive draws, so a win against Getafe tonight could put them four points clear.

They also have the head-to-head advantage over Barca, so a win tonight will be a huge moment in the title race.

You may have expected Zidane to go with his strongest side to ensure they win, but he’s chosen to leave Eden Hazard out:

Hazard and Benzema have forged a wonderful partnership in recent game and they are exciting to watch, so it will be interesting to see how the fare with out him.
