Veteran defender Sergio Ramos put on the championship cloak again and saved his team Real Madrid from his guest Getafe's ambush and scored his valuable 1-0 victory goal on Thursday to cement his lead in the Spanish Football League.
At Alfredo di Stefano's stadium, the first half of the match, which was held in the 33rd La Liga round, ended in a negative draw between Real and Getafe after the guests formed some inconvenience for the defense of the royal team in many periods of this half, although it did not constitute a real danger to the goal.
In the second half, the situation did not change much despite the changes made by both teams in the game, which was nervous and rough, which resulted in the warning of 5 players from each team.
In the 78th minute, Carvajal gave Real a golden opportunity by obtaining a penalty kick, from which Ramos scored the game's only goal in the 79th minute, to give Real 3 valuable points.

Ramos raised his score to 9 goals with the team in the Spanish league this season, to be the second scorer for the Royal League in this season after Karim Benzema, who scored 17 goals so far.
With this victory, the Real raised his score to 74 points in the lead, widening the difference with defending champion Barcelona and second-placed club to 4 points.

On the other hand, Getafe's score was frozen at 52 points in sixth place, knowing that it is the team's first defeat in the last 5 matches played in the competition.
