Real Madrid will be keen to respond to a stuttering start to the campaign when they travel to Getafe on Sunday evening, as Bet365 announce the launch of their live streams service on the European football.
The season may only be two games old, but a draw at home to Valencia in the league and a 3-2 defeat to Barcelona in the Super Cup certainly doesn’t represent an ideal start for the reigning Champions.
Jose Mourinho’s men will be keen to get their first competitive win of the season this weekend to get things underway. Winning is a habit and as soon as Madrid get their first victory under their belt, they will feel they can go from strength to strength.
Punters can now watch all the action from the European Leagues live and streaming with Bet365, who also offer free bets worth £200/€200 to spend on any outright or match betting market this weekend -They’ll also refund bets if the game ends 0-0! Exclusive to SqueakyBumTime.com
It is important that this comes on Sunday night too. It may be the early stages of the new season, but can they really afford to fall a few points behind Barcelona? Playing catch up from the word go is not the way to go when defending a title.
The quality they have is under no doubt though and they have a mental toughness about them these days too. Mourinho will demand a performance on Sunday evening and if he gets it, the result should come.
Getafe will be determined to put up a good fight though. They lost their opening game at Sevilla, but in front of their home fans they will want to compete with Madrid from the word go.
Following an up and down season last time out – they eventually finished 11th – Getafe need something to kick-start their form. After five games without a win at the end of last season and just one victory in pre-season, they need to start believing in themselves again.
A positive result at home to Madrid would certainly help achieve that, but it is going to be very tough. They only lost 1-0 in this fixture last year though and another tight contest would suit the hosts.
This one gets underway at 8pm on Sunday evening.
