Real Madrid reclaim top spot with Joselu double


Joselu scored a goal in each half as Real Madrid beat local rivals Getafe to return to the top of La Liga.

The former Stoke striker headed home Lucas Vazquez’s cross to put Carlo Ancelotti’s side in front after 14 minutes and a clinical finish early in the second half secured the win.

Mason Greenwood and Borja Mayoral hit the post for Getafe but Real held on to move two points clear of Girona.

Real moved to 57 points, two ahead Girona and 10 clear of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. The leaders host Atletico on Sunday and Girona six days later in games that will be crucial in the LaLiga title run-in.
“If we win the next two games we will have six more points and that will be good,” Ancelotti told a press conference.
“Let’s hope we can count on Rudiger (for Sunday’s derby), I think he can recover. We have two days to try to get him back, it’s a strong blow to the thigh.”
