Getafe failed to create clear cut opportunities and as a result of which they could not score. Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo had a great time in the second period. The number 7 player scored a sensational hat-trick and looks in top class form ahead of the game against fierce rivals Barcelona in the Copa del Rey.
Ronaldo was assisted by Di Maria and Ozil respectively for his opening two goals of the game. The third came from 12 yards out when he converted a penalty. The Portuguese superstar was taken off by Jose Mourinho in the 73rd minute to make way for Karim Benzema.
Wednesday’s Spanish Cup fixture against Barcelona is a very crucial one with final tickets at stake. Real Madrid have already lost the La Liga. They will face Manchester United in Europe and it is an open secret that the Champions League is arguably the most difficult trophy to win.
Silverware is extremely important for a club like Real Madrid. While winning the Copa del Rey is plausible, there is much work which needs to be done before the team can put their hands on the Spanish Cup. Barcelona have been in tip-top form. Last weekend’s defeat against Real Sociedad could only propel the Catalan giants towards greater things.
Would Cristiano Ronaldo be able to win the tie against Barcelona single-handedly? The answer will soon be revealed in the first 'El Clasico' of the year 2013.
