Real Madrid vs Getafe: Zidane reacts to 3-1 win

Facebook

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has said he is unsure if midfielder pair Toni Kroos and Luka Modric will be fit in time to face Paris Saint-Germain in midweek.

"With a game like Tuesday's coming up it was very important to be in a good mood for the next three days as when you lose you're in a bad way, so it was very important for us to win".

"We will see", Zidane said. He has 14 goals already in this calendar year and 10 in his last five games.

That was his 300th goal in La Liga, in just 286 games in the competition for Real . Barcelona, who have 66, host second-placed Atletico Madrid in a top-of-the-table clash on Sunday, when Diego Simeone's side can reduce the gap behind the leaders to two points with a victory. He played with the "BBC" trio of Karim Benzema, Bale, and Ronaldo yesterday, a sign of his possible lineup for the match against PSG. Against Espanyol the first half was good and the second half wasn't.

The monitoring group said the Turkish army was in control of about 70 per cent of the town, 25km northwest of the city of Afrin. Bulbul and Rajo town centres were previously liberated.

Ronaldo dashed their hopes, however, in the 78th minute heading in Marcelo's cross at the near post. Ronaldo, who had a goal disallowed for offside midway through the second half, was substituted shortly after his second goal.

After Getafe forward Loic Remy was sent off for a forearm smash on Nacho Fernandez, the 10 men got a goal back when Francisco Portillo converted the penalty after Nacho was lucky to avoid a second yellow after taking down visiting forward Jorge Molina in the area. Villarreal lost their second straight game. It was his eighth league goal this campaign.

"What we have to do is play our game without thinking about the atmosphere", Zidane told reporters. His record in the Champions League this season is, of course, ridiculous - 11 goals from seven appearances. The teams in fifth and sixth place receive an automatic spot in the Europa league, while the seventh-place team enters a qualifying round. Deportivo remained second-to-last in the standings, inside the relegation zone.
