Real Madrid thought they took the lead against Getafe tonight but Mariano was on trial fair offside when he raced.
Los Blancos need to keep winning league games to stay in the race to win La Liga. Tonight’s trip to Getafe, which sits 15th in the table, would normally have been a great chance to get three points on the table.
However, Real Madrid are extremely exhausted at the moment with several key players injured or suspended, forcing Zinedine Zidane to field this team tonight.

It’s not the roster he would have wanted to name in such a potentially crucial game, but he had no choice but to do so.
Nonetheless, Zidane would have thought his side had taken the lead early in the game, when Mariano crossed the defensive line, bypassed the keeper and found the net.
However, he was deemed to have been slightly offside. It’s tight!
