Spanish La Liga

Starting XI: Getafe v Real Madrid

Real Madrid will be looking to cement their top spot in La Liga when they travel to Getafe on Sunday afternoon.
 
 
The match is scheduled to get underway at 13h00 at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.
 
Carlo Ancelotti's side were dumped out of the Copa del Rey in the week after only managing a 2-2 draw at the Santiago Bernebau.
 
In La Liga, Los Blancos returned winning ways by seeing off Espanyol 3-0 thanks to goals from James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale and Nacho.
 
Iker Casillas is expected to return to the line-up, after missing out against Atletico, while defender Pepe went off injured against their cross-town rivals in the cup.
 
Getafe, meanwhile, come into this clash having only won of their last five matches since the turn of the year, although that win came in their last league clash against Almeria.
 
The hosts will be without Papa Babacar Diawara, who is away with Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nations, while Vicenete Guita and Ángel Lafita Castillo are sidelined through injury.
 
In head-to-head statistics, Madrid boast 20 wins compared to Getafe's five, while two matches have ended in a draw.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Getafe: Codina, Valera, Naldo, Velazquez, Lago, Leon, Alexis, Rodriguez, Hinestroza, Sammir, Alvaro
 
Real Madrid: Casillas, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, James, Kroos, Isco, Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo
