LaLiga: Depleted Real Madrid stumble in title race


A heavily depleted Real Madrid side were held to a 0-0 draw at Getafe on Sunday.

The result saw Zinedine Zidane’s men fall three points behind leaders Atletico Madrid.

Real defeated Barcelona 2-1 last week and saw off Liverpool in midweek to reach the Champions League semi-finals.

However, they were without nine players due to either injury, suspension or COVID-19 positives.

Mariano had an early goal chalked off for offside after a VAR review, but Getafe had far more and far better chances.

The draw interrupted a run of four straight league victories for Real Madrid.

Los Blancos now sit in second place with 67 points after 31 games, three behind leaders Atletico who thrashed Eibar 5-0 earlier in the day.
