Nacho Fernandez, Dani Ceballos and Isco are preferred by new boss Julen Lopetegui, the trio having worked under the 51-year-old with Spain’s national teams.

Keylor also stays between the sticks, despite conceding four goals in the European Super Cup against Atletico Madrid midweek and the presence of Thibaut Courtois.

Nonetheless, you would have to go back to February 2008 for the last time Getafe beat Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
