Real Madrid entertain Getafe in La Liga as Los Blancos look to continue their momentum after their midweek Champions League success over Chelsea.

A Karim Benzema hat-trick powered Real Madrid to a 3-1 first leg triumph at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Ancelotti's side sit 12 points clear at the top of La Liga with eight games remaining and the Italian will be keen to avoid any slip-ups between now and the end of the season.

Here's how Los Blancos could shape up.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Thibaut Courtois (GK) - Continues to produce the goods for Real Madrid, while he has grown into a leadership role over the years.

Lucas Vazquez (RB) - Impressed in the win over Celta Vigo in La Liga last time out, with his ability to carry the ball being a huge asset to Real Madrid.

Nacho Fernandez (CB) - The Spaniard could come in to replace Eder Militao, who was forced off against Chelsea through injury.

David Alaba (CB) - Only Toni Kroos has made more accurate passes per match than the Austrian.

Ferland Mendy (LB) - Produced a strong performance in his return to the Real Madrid side in last weekend's 2-1 triumph over Celta Vigo.

2. Midfielders
