In the 14th minute, Joselu grabs the opener for Real Madrid. Fede Valverde passes a good pass to Lucas Vazquez, who makes a fast overlap. Vazquez sends a cross to Joselu, who beats his defender to win a header and send the ball into the net. This is Joselu’s 15th goal contribution of the season for Real Madrid. Joselu was close to scoring late in the first half, but the ball was cleared for a throw-in.

In the second half, Mason Greenwood almost scored for Getafe in the 52nd minute. Greenwood runs from the right and shoots a low-driven shot, but the shot hits the post. Getafe would be punished for not converting that chance because Real Madrid grabbed their second. Vinicius Jr takes the ball in the middle of the pitch and passes a great ball to Joselu, who made a smart run. Joselu gives the Getafe defender no time to react as he controls the ball inside and shoots a left-footed strike in the bottom right corner past the keeper. This is Joselu’s 12th goal of the season and Vinicius’ 16th goal contribution.

Despite grabbing another assist, Vinicius misses huge chances to score against Getafe

Vinicius Jr missed one of the easiest chances in his career. After Jude Bellingham passed a great ball to Joselu, the Spanish striker was running towards goal along with Vinicius. Instead of grabbing his hat trick, Joselu decides to pass the ball to Vini. Vini cuts the ball inside to drop the keeper, but his shot fails him as it hits the Getafe keeper’s hand. Vini could've made it 3-0 for Madrid.

Vini gets played a great ball by Bellingham and outpaces a Getafe defender. The Brazilian took too long to release a shot, and the ball hit straight at the keeper. Vini missed another great chance for Real Madrid, as he had three very clear chances today. Real Madrid could've scored more but the Joselu brace was enough to bring them at the top of La Liga with 57 points.
