Real have won their last seven encounters with Getafe, scoring 30 goals and conceding six in the process.

The former Tottenham star was expected to recover in time to join up with his national team ahead of crucial 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and the Republic of Ireland.

Getafe, who spent last season in the Segunda Division before winning promotion via the playoffs, have lost two of their three home games so far this term.

The 28-year-old will remain on the sidelines for Saturday's LaLiga trip to Getafe but Zidane rejected the notion that reported interest from Manchester United should have persuaded the reigning Spanish and European champions to cash in at a time when France sensation Kylian Mbappe was on the market.

Getafe versus Real Madrid kicks off at 16:15 local time at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez and due to broadcasting laws in the UK, it cannot be shown live.

Meanwhile, Los Blancos have had a stuttering start to La Liga, with poor results and injuries placing them 5th in the league with 14 points.

2 - He is the second coach to win the UEFA Super Cup in consecutive seasons, the first was Arrigo Sacchi at AC Milan in 1990.

"He wants to come back as soon as possible and we will see". He's had two things: the first in Dortmund and then he aggravated something in the soleus.

"He wanted to try and test his injury and something went". I'm neither a doctor nor a physiotherapist.

"We're going to see day by day, to see how he is". I've got confidence in the people who work here. Also, being without Toni Kroos will mean Luka Modric will have to use his experience to turn midfield possession into an attack, as well as getting back to do defensive duties. "That's it. He's okay, relaxed and he knows that those who are dealing with his recovery are doing things perfectly", Zidane said.

Getafe haven't had any injuries sustained over the international break so will likely line up as they did in their last La Liga fixture in their preferred 4-4-2 formation.

"We want him at 100 percent - it could be a week still, or two, but his health is the most important".
