Cristiano Ronaldo’s late goal eased Real Madrid to an important win over Getafe that helped them beat a long-standing record, previously held by arch rivals Barcelona.

The Portuguese superstar’s 85th-minute strike saw Madrid claim their 13th successive away La Liga win, surpassing the mark of 12 set by Pep Guardiola’s Barca side from May 2010 to January 2011.

The goal was Ronaldo’s first of the league campaign, the Portuguese having drawn a blank in his three previous La Liga appearances, Metro reported.

“It was important that he scored his first (in the league) and I am happy for him,” said manager Zinedine Zidane.

“We have suffered a lot but it is normal. We know that in La Liga we are going to suffer in all the matches because there is a rival that wants to put you in difficulties. The good thing is that we played a good match, the first half was phenomenal with how we had the ball and with our chances. We have achieved the three points, which is what was most important,” Zidane added.
