“Mind-Boggling: Rotated Madrid Secure Victory Against Getafe Ahead of Upcoming Showdown with Man City!”
Real Madrid secured a 1-0 win over Getafe in La Liga on Saturday as they prepared for their crucial Champions League semi-final match against Manchester City. The game saw Marco Asensio score the only goal of the match in the 70th minute, but it was a match that lacked excitement and did not get the crowd’s pulses racing. The victory meant that Barcelona now have to beat Espanyol on Sunday if they want to clinch the title this weekend. Ancelotti rotated his squad to rest his key players ahead of the City match, leaving just three of the starting team from the first leg. However, Eduard Camavinga limped off with a knee injury sustained in a clash with Juan Iglesias. Ancelotti assured fans that he would recover quickly and was optimistic ahead of the City match. The first half was uneventful, with no action at either end, and both teams struggling to create chances. The second half saw Madrid pick up the pace and Asensio finally broke through to score the winning goal. Vinicius later scored a second, but it was disallowed for offside. Defeat leaves Jose Bordalas’s Getafe 18th in the relegation zone, level on points with Valencia, who visit Celta Vigo on Sunday.
