La Liga Thursday pick of the day from Miller: Real Madrid vs Getafe

Real Madrid can close in on La Liga title with victory Thursday over solid Getafe side. Match time is 4 pm EDT.

Not that Real Madrid ever needs favors anymore, but Atlético Madrid did the Merengues one Tuesday by drawing Barcelona 2-2.

Now, Real Madrid comes into Thursday’s match against sixth place Getafe with a one-point cushion already (and holding the tiebreaker), knowing a win gives it a four-point lead with just five games to play.

I would expect Los Merengues to put on a professional performance, and find a way past a solid side.
