Real Madrid secured their passage to the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey in midweek with a comfortable 3-1 aggregate win over Valencia, but that win came at a cost as Iker Casillas will miss the next two months after fracturing a bone in his left hand.
Antonio Adan will therefore deputise for the Spanish captain in goal but Sergio Ramos has now served his four-match suspension for abusing officials in the previous round of the Copa del Rey against Celta Vigo.
Gonzalo Higuain is also expected to return after being dropped in favour of Karim Benzema in midweek.
Getafe's winless streak stretched to six games with a 1-1 draw at home to Sevilla last weekend and Luis Garcia is still without a number of first-team regulars for their trip to the Bernabeu.
Angel Lafita, Pedro Leon, Mane, Abdel Barrada and Mehdi Lacen are all still out but Diego Castro does return from suspension and will almost certainly start.
David Abraham was also sold to Hoffenheim earlier in the week so Alberto Lopo or Rafa will come into the back four.
Madrid sent out a warning last weekend that they could be coming back into form just at the right time with big Copa del Rey and Champions League games around the corner and they should have way too much firepower for a depleted Getafe.
Jose Mourinho will be particularly keen to get the game finished as a contest as soon as possible with Barcelona to come on Wednesday night and a victory would increase the pressure slightly on the Catalans and Atletico Madrid, who play later on Sunday.
