Real Madrid recorded a 5-1 victory at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez to narrow the gap between themselves and league leaders Barcelona to just one point but the Catalans have a game in hand.
Karim Benzema, Isco, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo scored for Los Blancos, while Paulo Sarabia for Getafe.
Real Madrid coach I recently chose to Casemiro as doubles partner Luca Toni Kroos and Modric in midfield because of his defensive qualities; the trio has started in two games against Wolfsburg in the Champions League and their victory against Barcelona at Camp Nou.
Against Getafe, Zidane decided to give airtime Isco and James, dismissing Casemiro and Modric.
Both players Isco and James took their chances and played brilliantly, contributing to the score and playing 90 minutes. James assisted after a Benema lifted his own and scored a goal in the second half.
Isco also scored a fantastic goal after Benzema combinations.
With big games on the horizon against Villarreal on Wednesday and Manchester City in the Champions League, Isco and James will hope that the performance will be enough to justify their choice in the first team starter as the season gradually reaches its peak.
