Real Madrid will lock horns with local rivals Getafe in La Liga in a few hours as they look to move back to the top of the table.

Having dropped points against Osasuna last weekend, Los Blancos will be aware that they cannot afford another slip-up ahead of the first El Clasico of the season next weekend.

Keeping that in mind, Carlo Ancelotti has named a strong starting lineup for the clash that will take place at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

With Thibaut Courtois unavailable, Andriy Lunin starts in goal as expected. There is one change in defence as Antonio Rudiger comes into the side at the expense of Ferland Mendy.

The German international is likely to partner Eder Militao at the heart of the defence while David Alaba lines up at left-back. Dani Carvajal is retained at right-back ahead of Lucas Vazquez.

Luka Modric returns to the starting XI after missing the last league game against Osasuna with an injury. The Croatian international captains Real Madrid in the absence of Karim Benzema, who is rested. Toni Kroos makes way for the veteran midfielder.

Aurelien Tchouameni is retained at the base of the midfield by Ancelotti while Eduardo Camavinga also gets the nod in the middle of the park.

It frees up Federico Valverde to line up on the right flank while Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Jr make up the rest of the Real Madrid attack.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Lunin, Carvajal, Militao, Rudiger, Alaba, Modric, Tchouameni, Camavinga, Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius.

Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.

The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid

Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit. 

Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.

Real Madrid not hiding their discontent

The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.

Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit. 

For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.

Real Madrid are suspicious

Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition. 

For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.

As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.

Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
