Real Madrid 4-0 Getafe
01 : 47 PM - 11/05/2011
Madrid, May 11 (BNA) - Cristiano Ronaldo now sits on 36 league goals following his fourth hat-trick of the season and the Whites demolish a Getafe side struggling to stay alive in La Liga.

Tuesday’s match got off to a slow start for both sides. Real Madrid were satisfied with creating plays and scoring opportunities, while Cristiano Ronaldo put Getafe’s goal in the center of his crosshairs. Following an extraordinary pass by Ozil on 24’, Ronaldo out-jumped Cata Diaz and connected with a perfect header to send the ball into the back of the net. It was a heavy blow for Getafe, who were unable to advance towards Adan; by far one of the easiest matches of his career as the Azulones ended the first half with zero shots on goal.
The visitors pushed their lines forward after the restart, but to little avail. Real Madrid, meanwhile, sought a strike that would all but seal the win. Then on 58’, Higuain beat Ustari to a ball and the deflection landed at the feet of Ozil, The midfielder passed to Cristiano, who dribbled by Cata Diaz and easily scored the tap-in. The strike sunk Getafe, but only made Madrid hungrier.
