Real Madrid 3-1 Getafe: 5 Talking Points

PSG confirm Kylian Mbappe and Marquinhos injury boosts ahead of Real Madrid clash

Cristiano Ronaldo got the 300 up in style for Real Madrid, netting the second goal in Saturday's La Liga game at home to Getafe.

Gareth Bale opened the scoring for Los Blancos in the first half after firing home a loose ball from close to the penalty spot and just before the interval, Ronaldo made it two with some neat footwork in the area before clinically slotting into the corner.

Getafe's Loic Remy was sent off in the 47th minute for a second yellow card but the visitors still threatened a comeback at 2-0, when Francisco Portillo converted a penalty, awarded for a foul by Nacho on Jorge Molina. Zidane rested Ronaldo and other starters this week when they lost at Espanyol 1-0.

Bale overtook David Beckham as the British player with the most appearances in La Liga by playing his 117th game for Real.

Real Madrid 3-1 Getafe: 5 Talking Points

He told a press conference: "Before a second-leg game like Tuesday it was very important to have three days in a good mood".

With 11 minutes remaining Ronaldo headed in his second of the net, from a cross by fit-again substitute Marcelo, and was then substituted by Zidane ahead of Tuesday's game, in which his side will defend a 3-1 advantage from the first leg. "We were very good against Getafe, but now we must think about Tuesday".

Midfield pair Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are both doubts for Real's clash with PSG, but Zidane has indicated that he intends to have everyone travel to France and train ahead of the match.

"I don't know, they haven't trained with us", Zidane admitted. "With Kroos and Modric we will see day by day, but what matters is that the players have to be at one hundred percent". "I don't know what would have happened if he played for Atletico, I don't want to even imagine it", Valverde, who suffered repeatedly against Messi while in charge of Athletic Bilbao, said. We'll see if they train with the ball [on Sunday]. "What we must do ourselves is focus on the game we must play, not in if the game is being heated up".
