Real Madrid tops Girona in Spanish league with 2-0 win at Getafe. Joselu scores twice

Real Madrid's 2-0 win at Getafe puts them back on top of the Spanish league, extending their unbeaten streak to 25.

Real Madrid has once again taken the top spot in the Spanish league, following a comfortable 2-0 victory over Getafe. The match had been rescheduled due to the Spanish Super Cup, and Joselu Mato's two goals secured the win for Madrid, moving them two points ahead of Girona at the top of the standings.

This victory marks Madrid's sixth consecutive win in the league, and they remain unbeaten in 25 matches across all competitions since their 3-1 loss to Atletico Madrid in September. With a 10-point lead over both Atletico and defending champion Barcelona, Madrid is firmly in control of the league.

The Spanish Super Cup, which was won by Madrid last month in Saudi Arabia, had caused the postponement of several matches, including Atletico's 2-1 win over Rayo Vallecano and Barcelona's 1-0 victory over Osasuna. Both teams will be looking to close the gap on Madrid in the coming weeks.

Madrid's upcoming match against Atletico at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium will be a crucial test for both teams. The win over Getafe saw Joselu scoring a header in the 14th minute and a low shot in the 56th minute, securing Madrid's victory. Vinícius Júnior missed two clear chances in the second half, while Getafe hit the woodwork once while trailing 2-0.

Carlo Ancelotti's team has been on an impressive run, winning 20 games during their 25-match unbeaten streak. However, they faced defensive challenges in their match against Getafe, with Antonio Rüdiger getting injured in the first half and not returning for the second half. This forced Ancelotti to improvise with midfielder Aurélien Tchouaméni as a central defender alongside Nacho Fernández.

Getafe, on the other hand, had been struggling with three straight league matches without a win before their victory over Granada. Despite the loss to Madrid, they remain in 10th place in the standings.

Overall, Madrid's victory over Getafe has solidified their position at the top of the Spanish league, and their upcoming match against Atletico will be a crucial moment in the season. With their unbeaten streak and strong performance, Madrid is looking to maintain their lead and secure the league title.
