The Blancos head trainer denied to look too far forward after his side’s sixth successive La Liga success
Zinedine Zidane said he was”proud” of his Real Madrid players after passing through a difficult test against Getafe, while insisting”without discomfort you cannot reach anything”.
Sergio Ramos was the hero, scoring the only goal in the penalty area from the 79th moment since the La Liga leaders earned a 1-0 home win on Thursday night.
Following full-back Dani Carvajal had been upended by Getafe’s Mathias Olivera, the Madrid captain coolly converted the spot-kick with 11 minutes staying at Santiago Bernabeu.
The success has been Madrid’s sixth in a row since they extended their edge over stuttering defending winners Barca to four points with five games remaining.
Zidane heaped praise upon his group post-match, but denied to begin getting carried away with their status in the league standings.

“There are just three more factors,” Zidane told Movistar. “They’re three essential factors.
“We needed to win yes but nothing longer. For us changes. We’ve got five finals left.
“We haven’t won anything. I understand this is similar to and till this is finished, we can’t say anything.
“We must keep working. We’re joyful, proud of this group… the attempt, the solidity we reveal, is quite great.
“This is soccer, soccer every 3 days is a brand new narrative. Now we endured a lot, another day against Espanyol too.
“We played against the base team, but they make it hard for you. Without suffering you can’t accomplish anything.”

Zidane, whose in-form Madrid unwanted travel to Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, added:”We understood that we’d endure a good deal. They pressed really high, it’s cost us a bit, but it’s normal.
“I presume that with patience it had been understood that the target could be attained. It’s what we did, have reassurance, since these are crucial moments you need to congratulate the players since it hasn’t been simple, emotionally or physically.”
Following their visit to San Mames Stadium this weekend, Madrid will appear ahead to a different home fixture from Deportivo Alaves on July 10, which includes only three days prior to a meeting with Granada since the fixture list continues to accumulate.
