Shots but not the end product? Why Getafe vs Real Madrid might ring alarm bells in Madrid.

Real Madrid

Real Madrid edged over their neighbours Getafe securing a 0-1 win thanks to the goal from Eder Militao under Five minutes of the start. Madrid did dominate much of the ball playing it forward for Attackers and creating chances while taking in shots, but the genuine fault came out in the end product of Madrid's Attack.

While having much of the ball in Madrid's half it might have been sinful not to have a shot on target, as things stood, Karim Benzema's absence made a striker dilemma for Madrid but young talents like Rodrigo and Camavinga were able to step up for the team.

Madrid passed the ball beautifully and released Vinicius quite often, but in the end, the finishing was not there.

This lack of finishing might create quite an array of problems for the Champions as Teams like Getafe like to sit back and defence but given a chance, Getafe is ruthless when it comes to Counter, Even against Madrid, they managed to find lots of loose passes converting them into Counters which could really open up the defence.

With a solid backline of Rudiger, Alaba, Militao and Carvajal Madrid looked quite strong on the back had it not been for the defence and some exceptional saves from Lunin Madrid could also have conceded a fair amount of goals to Getafe.

With Madrid chasing the league toppers Barcelona for the title, games like these should be won with pure dominance and with quite a big margin Even though the chances created by Madrid were numerous they failed to convert them into goals.
