Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Getafe could line up in Sunday's La Liga clash with Real Madrid.

Getafe will be looking to end a run of five games without a victory in Spain's top flight when they host the reigning champions Real Madrid on Sunday night.

Jose Bordalas's side, who are currently 15th in the table, four points outside of the relegation zone, will again definitely be without the services of Cucho Hernandez and Erick Cabaco through injury.

Dario Poveda, Enes Unal and Sofian Chakla, meanwhile, are all doubts for the visitors, who suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Cadiz in their last match on April 10.

Head coach Bordalas is expected to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack on Sunday, meaning that the bulk of the side that started against Cadiz should again take to the field.

Jaime Mata is likely to lead the attack, with Marc Cucurella and Carles Alena featuring in forward positions, while there could also be a spot further forward for Allan Nyom.

Damian Suarez's expected return at right-back would allow Nyom to push into a more advanced area, with Bordalas likely to be cautious against Zinedine Zidane's team.

Portillo is an option for change in the middle of the park, but Mauro Arambarri and Nemanja Maksimovic are both expected to retain their positions in the starting XI this weekend.

Getafe possible starting lineup: Soria; Suarez, Timor, Dakonam, Olivera; Arambarri, Maksimovic; Nyom, Alena, Cucurella; Mata
