Real Madrid mascot imitates Cristiano Ronaldo's pre-match ritual

Bale lashed in the opener in the 24th minute from inside the area at a sparsely attended Santiago Bernabeu, while Ronaldo stretched Zinedine Zidane's side's advantage in injury time of the first half after a through ball from Karim Benzema, scoring his 300th Liga goal.

Getafe were back in the match in the 65th minute, however, when Francisco Portillo scored from the penalty spot after Molina went down under a challenge from Nacho, who appeared to play the ball.

Real Madrid face PSG in the second leg of the Champions League on Tuesday, with a 3-1 lead from the first leg.

Real's victory moved them four points clear of Valencia, who have a match in hand, and provided the flawless build-up to next week's crucial Champions League last-16 second leg against Paris Saint-Germain. Despite coming into the game in the wake of a shock defeat against Catalan outfit Espanyol, the Los Blancos started the game as favourites and looked pretty much the same throughout the game.

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

"We are very annoyed about that but it doesn't change anything and we have to look to the Getafe game, try to play well and win again".

He worked out on the defensive line, at linebacker and at safety during the Senior Bowl in January. It didn't stop him from being named the American Athletic Conference defensive player of the year.

Ronaldo did have his second in the 78th minute, however, when he headed a brilliant Marcelo cross into the back of the net before leaving the field shortly after as he was given a short rest ahead of the PSG clash.

Marcelo, back from injury, also came on for 25 minutes as a substitute, and is likely now to face PSG, but the same can not be said of injured duo Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, who were both absent again.

"They still haven't trained with us, we'll have to see if they do tomorrow", Zidane said. "We're not thinking about an easy game", Zidane said.

"I feel bad that Neymar is injured, he is an important player and PSG will miss him in trying to overturn the 3-1 deficit".

The Madrid coach added that his players had enough experience to not be intimidated by the hostile reception they are likely to get at Parc des Princes.
