Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso was delighted with victory over Getafe.

Sergio Ramos scored the only goal of the game.

"This is a very important victory because circumstances made this match more complicated. The wind, the pitch and the cold made it tough. This is no excuse though and we deserved to take three points. It isn't easy to defeat Getafe at their stadium, where they've managed to concede very few goals. We must focus solely on ourselves and on each game at a time. We must keep up the good work," said Xabi.
