Real Madrid 4-0 Getafe
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. Realmadrid.com 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.
