Real Madrid are 12 points clear at the top of La Liga after they sealed a comfortable 2-0 victory against Getafe. 

The goals from Casemiro and Lucas Vazquez for Real Madrid were enough to get all three points against Getafe. Carlo Ancelotti’s side dominated the whole game. The visitors were well structured and organised defensively until Casemiro’s diving header in the 38th minute. 

Getafe’s players, Unal and Mayoral, were ineffective in the first half, and they did not manage to register a shot on target. In the second half, Real Madrid doubled their goal lead through Lucas Vazquez in the 68th minute. 

Real Madrid won comfortably because they dominated ball possession (69%) and had 26 shots, 8 of which were on target. Getafe had 8 shots in which none of them were on target. 

This defeat means Getafe will stay in 14th position on the league table.

Real Madrid play Chelsea next in the Champions League for the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.
