Getafe is a tough opponent

They will try to use Getafe’s weaknesses and work on decreasing advantages.
Sergio Ramos operation
Journalists asked Zidane about Ramos’ operation. As you may know, Ramos underwent knee surgery. He has been in constant pain since the start of January. Sergio was injured but still played in the semi-final of Athletic Bilbao. He wanted to give Real Madrid fans a gift as a SuperCopa title.
