Real Madrid matchwinner Sergio Ramos was delighted with his goal in victory at Getafe.

Ramos headed home the only goal of the game.

"The season is very long. We will continue to try enlarging our lead over the runners-up and to do things well. We truly deserved to win tonight despite how hard the match was and how difficult Getafe made things for us. It's hard to take points against them and I'm very happy we took three," said Ramos.

"I'm very happy with the season I'm having. I'm finding balance both personally and physically, and I hope to continue performing at this level at Real Madrid for many years.

"We're practicing on set pieces like the one I scored from and they're working out for us. It's important to be focused in set pieces to hurt opponents in attack.

"It's good to be regular throughout the season, but the merit belongs to collective work, which is what's going to help us win titles."
