Real Madrid are on a high these days and they would look to carry that momentum to the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez where they are going to face Getafe CF. The whites produced a magical comeback courtesy their star player Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick against Woflsburg the other day.
Their coach and former French legend Zidane has brushed aside the idea of Getafe being an easy pushover for the Spanish giants because he believes that their opposition gives it their all whenever they play and he will not underestimate them just because they are ranked lower in the table. He also added that a change in manager of Getafe, who he happens to know, could pose an interesting challenge.
Zidane made it absolutely clear that Ronaldo will play that match and he has no intentions of resting him and the striker is also looking forward to playing in that match.
Barcelona lost two matches in a row, one to Real Madrid and other to Real Sociedad, which has narrowed down the gap between two side and perhaps this is why Zidane considers this as an important match because Barcelona’s dip in form could benefit Real Madrid in their bid to win the La Liga title.
“We have gone from a gap of 13 points to 4 and we are not going to let our guard down”, said Zidane
