Zidane: Madrid Can Still Win La Liga

Zinedine Zidane GETTYIs Zinedine Zidane's time at Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo bagged a brace on his return for Real Madrid as they defeated Getafe 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday night.

The pair remain in the treatment room due to a knee and hamstring injury respectively and whilst Modric is the more likely of the two to be ready in time for Tuesday the duo are not expected to start together regardless of any progress made in the days leading up the game, as the risk would be too great.

Real Madrid have won each of their last eight meetings with Getafe and dabblebet offer Los Blancos at 2/9 (1.28) to claim another victory.

Ronaldo reached the landmark in typically stylish fashion just before the break, making him only the second player after Lionel Messi to score 300 in Spain's top flight and managing the feat in 48 fewer games than his long-standing rival, before completing the scoring late on.

They took the lead in the 23rd minute through Gareth Bale.




Two minutes into the second half, Getafe were reduced to10 men when former Chelsea striker Loic Remy was sent off after picking up his second yellow card. After some patient build-up play, the Welshman unleashed a left-footed effort past Emiliano Martinez.

The referee was quick to point to the spot, but replays showed it had actually been a fine saving tackle, just touching the ball first.

Girona's impressive debut in the league continued in beating Villarreal 2-0, a result that put the modest Catalan club in position to make it to the Europa League. "Now we will keep trying to win, and with five rounds to go we will see what are our chances regarding the European competitions".

The kick off time for the match is 8:45pm Nigeria time. It is six points behind second-to-last Deportivo La Coruna.

Both teams pressed forward in the closing minutes and the match was up for grabs, but Moreno finally got a reward for his persistence, surprising Navas in the 93rd minute to secure the three points for Espanyol, who climb to 13th place.
