Real Madrid made a good start to the new year with a solid 3-0 win over Getafe to briefly climb to the top spot in La Liga ahead of Barcelona yesterday.
While the Catalans managed to regain the pole position with a draw later on, Zidane should still be impressed by the robust performance put in by his side.
While Thibaut Courtois earned most of the plaudits with a stellar performance between the sticks, fans did well not to miss out on the crazy speed Luca Modric notched up during the away fixture.
At 34-years of age the Croatian isn’t exactly considered a young man anymore but he seemed to turn back the clock with an insanely fast run during a Real counter and was clocked at a whooping 33.3 Km/h during the passage of play which led to his goal in the 96th minute.
Fans were quick to notice the midfielder’s pacy run during a post-match analysis and seemed to love the fact that the veteran is still being clocked at speeds that even many youngsters struggle to match.
