Real Madrid secure tight 1-0 win at Getafe

Real Madrid bounced back to winning ways in La Liga action as they secured a narrow 1-0 derby win away at Getafe.

Los Blancos made the short trip across the Spanish capital looking to secure a victory at the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side dropped their first points of the campaign in a 1-1 domestic draw at home to Osasuna last weekend but they remain unbeaten in all competitions so far in 2022/23.

Eder Militao’s early header proved to be the eventual match winner as he nodded home Luka Modric’s near post corner.

The visitors pushed hard for a second goal either side of the restart, with Brazilian duo Vinicius Junior seeing his penalty appeal overturned, and Rodrygo Goes’ goal ruled out for a VAR offside.

Fede Valverde’s ambitious effort almost squirmed through to clinch the win, but in the end, the visitors edged over the line to all three points.
