Despite the fallen title hopes and enduring a wretched spell, Real Madrid secured a decent victory against Getafe in their La Liga fixture last night.

Nevertheless, attracting everyone’s attention, Cristiano Ronaldo exhibited a proper form, playing a huge part in the Galacticos’ victory.

The match featured four goals, split 3-1. The hosts seemed to be in control over the entirety of ninety minutes, however, it remains true that they missed out on a few opportunities to widen the gap between their opponents.

The first goal of the match came off Gareth Bale. After some patient build-up play, the Welshman unleashed a left-footed effort past Emiliano Martinez.

The former Tottenham star also broke David Beckham’s record of most La Liga appearances for a British player. The superstar has appeared for the Spanish side on 117 occasions in La Liga as of now.

The next two goals were registered by Ronaldo who also left behind an impression over the fixture. The Portuguese scored his 300 and 301st La Liga goals, which played their part in securing his side the much needed three points.

However, what is even more astonishing than the goal tally itself, is that the Real Madrid talisman reached this milestone in 48 fewer games (286) than Lionel Messi (334).

The triumph has allowed the Spanish giants to rest in the 3rd position on the table, 12 points below their arch-rivals Barcelona, who seem to be comfortably relaxing at the top of the table.

With the title hopes vanishing from existence, Zidane could chiefly focus on securing the Champions League, which would better the odds of him staying on at the Bernabeu after this season.
