Match Preview

Life without Cristiano Ronaldo continues when Real Madrid welcomes Getafe to the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday. The Spanish heavyweights lost their star man to Juventus this summer after the Bianconeri agreed to pay a reported 117 million euros for his signature.

Clearly, the importance of the departed Portuguese forward to Los Blancos cannot be overemphasized and Julen Lopetegui's men have already swallowed a bitter pill in that regard. During the week, a resolute performance staged by cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid prevented the European champions from winning the UEFA Super Cup for the third successive year.

For the first time in the history of Real Madrid, they conceded four goals in a final against Los Rojiblancos although Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema managed to secure two consolation goals. In what is Julen Lopetegui's debut in La Liga as the new manager, the capital club will hope the fortune turns in their favor.

In the scope of that, Gareth Bale's rejuvenation could be vital to the success of the European champions as the season progresses with Barcelona and Atletico Madrid all possessing the personnel to put in a strong fight for the league title. The Welshman, having stood out in the preseason, has been tipped to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo by Lopetegui. 

With the likes of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, and Isco all available as attacking options to complement his efforts, this season could be one of the former Tottenham Hotspur winger's best yet should he maintain his fitness.

Sunday's clash could also see Thibaut Courtois make his debut between the sticks for Real Madrid after completing a move from Chelsea earlier this month. The 27-year-old Belgian was in the stands at the A. Le Coq Arena in Estonia when his competitor Keylor Navas conceded four times in the UEFA Super Cup defeat to Atletico Madrid.

For Getafe, the job will simply be to complicate affairs for their host considering the difference in their respective squad depth. A series of impressive performances by Jose Bordalas' side aided them to finish in the eighth position last season and, as a result, they may pose to be a handful coming into the new season.

However, the inconsistency in their performances during the preseason confirms that the possibility of Real Madrid cruising past them also exists. In retrospect, Los Blancos could draw inspiration from the fact that they have not lost against Getafe since August 2012.

The last meeting between the two clubs finished 2-1 and 3-1, respectively, in favor of the Bernabeu outfit.
