Real Madrid will benefit from improved defence over replacing Ronaldo

The FC panel answer your tweets on whether Zinedine Zidane could save Manchester United and if Neymar is still the biggest name at PSG.
A goal and an assist from Gareth Bale against Getafe got Julen Lopetegui's side off to a perfect start in La Liga.

MADRID -- Real Madrid beat Getafe 2-0 on Sunday night at the Santiago Bernabeu with the visiting team unable to register a single shot on target until late in the game. Keylor Navas remains the team's first-choice goalkeeper despite the arrival of Thibaut Courtois during the summer, and while Getafe showed little interest in attacking until they went two goals down, Real Madrid were assured in their defensive duties.

All in all, with an emphasis on fixing the attack, it seems that Julen Lopetegui...

1. Madrid keep pressure on Barca

Real Madrid kept up the pressure on Barcelona in the La Liga title race with a straightforward 5-1 win at Getafe on Saturday afternoon.

Gary Neville's error-prone Valencia show enough spirit in draw vs. Getafe

VALENCIA, Spain -- Three things from the Mestalla as Gary Neville's first La Liga home game finishes Valencia 2-2 Getafe.

1. Valencia show spirit, at least

Gary Neville's first La Liga home game as Valencia boss did not go exactly to plan, with his team showing spirit to twice come from behind, but not nearly enough guile or inspiration to beat a very limited Getafe side.

On two occasions in the opening stages, Valencia's team and fans were stunned as Getafe, who had just three goals and one...

Real Madrid struggle against Getafe before quality tells in second half

MADRID -- Three thoughts from the Coliseum Alfonso Perez as Real Madrid win 3-0 at Getafe in Sunday's early La Liga kickoff.

1. Madrid up tempo in second half to grind out win

While the 3-0 result was pretty comprehensive, this was not one of Real Madrid's most fluent performances of the season. The first 30 minutes in particular were short on entertainment, as Madrid struggled for any rhythm at all, with simple passes being regularly misplaced in midfield. The front three of Cristiano Ronaldo,...

Three Points: Getafe frustrate misfiring Barcelona

It was a day of frustration for Lionel Messi and Barcelona.

MADRID -- Three observations from Getafe and Barcelona's 0-0 draw in La Liga.

1. This was not a good game

Barcelona's two La Liga fixtures with Getafe were full of excitement last year, with the suburban Madrid side racing into a 2-0 lead before losing 5-2 in the first, then drawing 2-2 at the Camp Nou last April as the Catalan side's title challenge derailed.

There was not so much fun on Saturday. The first half saw little in the way of quality possession and few chances for either side: Xavi...

Looking at the next Conte, Simeone

After the success of Pep Guardiola, Diego Simeone and Antonio Conte in recent seasons, it seems that generation -- those whose playing careers straddled both the 20th and 21st centuries -- is set to produce a number of excellent coaches. Five more are taking their bow at major clubs this season -- here's the lowdown on their expectations for 2014-15.

Claude Makelele, Bastia

Few players are so dominant that their name becomes synonymous with their role, but the "Makelele role" became widespread, at...
