[ad_1]

Real Madrid have now opened up a 12-point lead at the top of La Liga table thanks to a 2-0 win at home to Getafe.

Los Blancos are now within touching distance of clinching the Spanish title with seven league games still to go in the 2021/22 campaign.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side carved out a string of early chances before Brazilian star Vinicius Junior‘s brilliant outside-of-the-boot cross found Casemiro to nod the home side in front.

The hosts looked to step up the attacking pressure in the second period as winger Rodrygo Goes fed in the overlapping Lucas Vazquez to smash them into a des 2-0 lead.

Enes Unal struck the post in added time with a fierce drive, to deny Getafe a late consolation, with the visitors still four points above the drop zone.
