Real Madrid secured a crucial 2-0 victory against Getafe, propelling them into the coveted first place in La Liga. 

The hero of the night was none other than striker Joselu, whose brace showcased his lethal finishing and strategic game skill on the field.

Ancelotti’s squad, now two points ahead of Girona after their catch-up fixture, exhibited dominance against mid-table Getafe. 

Joselu, on loan from Espanyol, headed Madrid into the lead in the first half and sealed the deal early in the second, putting his team in control of the match.

The Spanish Super Cup champions, led by the impressive Joselu, created numerous opportunities but couldn’t further widen the scoreline in this derby clash. With a 10-point lead over rivals Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, Real Madrid is poised for a challenging showdown against Diego Simeone’s Atletico on Sunday at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ancelotti expressed his admiration for Joselu’s performance, saying, “(Joselu) is doing everything he needs to stay here, he’s doing spectacularly. It’s a blessing to have a player with this quality.”

Despite a setback with defender Antonio Rudiger forced off, Real Madrid maintained control of the game. Joselu’s second goal, a result of a smooth team move orchestrated by Vinicius, showcased the team’s attacking acumen. However, the unselfish play that denied Joselu a hat-trick, opting to assist Vinicius, highlighted the collective spirit within the squad.

As the team gears up for the business end of the season, Ancelotti remains optimistic, saying, “The team is motivated, fighting, we managed this game well, which was not easy.”

Getafe coach Jose Bordalas acknowledged the challenge posed by Real Madrid, describing them as “the most in-form team in the league.” Despite their efforts, Getafe struggled to recover from the early goal conceded, emphasizing the impact of missed opportunities in such a demanding match.

The suspension of Tchouameni for the upcoming clash with Atletico adds a layer of complexity for Madrid, yet Ancelotti remains hopeful about Rudiger’s recovery. The Madrid derby promises to be a thrilling encounter, with Joselu’s stellar form making him a player to watch.

Real Madrid have the upcoming battles and the highly anticipated clash against Atletico Madrid.
