Real beats Getafe, Ronaldo scores 300th goal in La Liga

  • Zidane told reporters on Friday'It's difficult but not impossible. I'm an optimist until the end

Zidane added: "The team looks better than it did four days ago, I'm sure of that".

"We will have three days of good mood in the squad".

Bale overtook David Beckham as the British player with the most appearances in La Liga by playing his 117th game for Real. He has 14 goals already in this calendar year and 10 in his last five games.

Real are third in the Liga standings on 54 points after 27 games.

But Zidane, who has injury concerns of his own with Los Blancos, rejected the notion it will be a one-sided affair without the presence of the Brazilian superstar. He played with the "BBC" trio of Karim Benzema, Bale, and Ronaldo yesterday, a sign of his possible lineup for the match against PSG.

Real Madrid opened the scoring in the twenty-fourth minute when Gareth Bale finished from inside the penalty area.

"It's true that it's going to be the first time for me", he said.

His second goal was a header in the 78th from a pass by Marcelo.

Ronaldo soon had the ball in the net, but celebrations were swiftly cut short by an offside flag.

Francisco Portillo restored some hope for the visitors with a goal in the 65th minute but Getafe struggled to inspire a comeback with a numerical disadvantage on their back.

Getafe were reduced to 10 men in the 47th minute when Remy caught Nacho in the side of the face with his arm, and, having been cautioned in the first half, was shown a second yellow card followed by a red. Villarreal lost their second straight game. "We continued to play until the end and we were effective up front". In the Champions League, Ronaldo has been converting all season and he leads the scoring charts in the continental competition with 11 goals in his seven matches. The teams in fifth and sixth place receive an automatic spot in the Europa league, while the seventh-place team enters a qualifying round. It is six points behind second-to-last Deportivo La Coruna.
