Real Madrid vs Getafe

Zinedine Zidane

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.

Getafe's performance during the early exchanges showed why they have the third best defence in LaLiga this season, as they sat deep and absorbed significant Madrid pressure.

Getafe could not keep the score at 1-0 entering the interval, however, with Ronaldo doubling the home side's advantage in first-half stoppage time when he collected a smart pass from Benzema before finding the bottom corner to register his 300th La Liga goal. Getafe failed to clear Karim Benzema's cross into the box, and the ball fell neatly for Bale, who swept it confidently past goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

U.S. envoy quits as North Korea talks seem more likely
On Monday, Trump responded to the North's reported overture by saying talks will happen only "under the right conditions". But the US has pressed on with ever tougher sanctions, including a new set on the North's shipping capabilities.

Dani Carvajal almost doubled Los Blancos' lead in the 39th minute with a low strike from 20-yards out that sailed inches wide of the upright. The only thing we have is to look at Tuesday and see who we are going to go with.

Madrid's pressure became relentless thereafter and Benzema nearly got in on the act, but Martinez kept his 16-yard effort at bay after Bale teed him up perfectly.

The evening got even worse for Getafe soon after the break when Remy was sent off.

The motion received overwhelming support from ANC and EFF MPs and was passed with 241 votes in favour versus 83 votes against.

Ronaldo was prominent again twice in quick succession a few moments later, first seeing a header disallowed for fouling his marker, before forcing a remarkable save from Martinez.

Zidane will be hoping that Modric and Kroos can also recover from their respective muscle injuries in time for the game with the duo regular starters for Real when they are fit.

Ronaldo was the latest of the trident to be rested on Tuesday, when Madrid collapsed to a 1-0 defeat against Espanyol. "What we must do ourselves is focus on the game we must play, not in if the game is being heated up". In fact, since January 27 2013, he has never failed to score in this fixture, more than five years of "goal torture' for Getafe".
