Meanwhile, top will take on bottom tonight as Atletico Madrid welcome Eibar to Wanda Metropolitano, with both teams desperate to secure all three points but for very different reasons.

Atletico will be looking to stay on top while Eibar occupy 20th position, four points from the safety of 17th spot with eight games left.

"I'm sure that the fans are proud of the team and as the coach, I'm really happy because all of the players are very committed. We now face 10 games in the space of a month and it's just the way it is. It's the situation we face, but we're pleased to be in the hunt in both competitions. We're focused because we've got a really important game tomorrow. This group has won a lot but is always hungry for more," said Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane following the team's final training session ahead of Getafe encounter.

"It's been an intense time with demanding games, but the important thing is that we're in very good shape mentally. We face a really tough physical test tomorrow and there are three points at stake. The squad is committed and focused on what'll be a really tough game against Getafe."
