Madrid has four matches left as it chases its first league title since 2017.
Zinedine Zidane said he was "proud" of his Real Madrid players after coming through a tough test against Getafe, while insisting "without suffering you can not achieve anything".
Ramos was perhaps fortunate not to concede a penalty himself when, off the ball, he seemed to slip and tread on the foot of Raul Garcia, but Madrid escaped. "Hopefully, it's a small thing and we can see him again before the end of the league [season]", he said during the press conference. It's always a hard game away at Bilbao and we saw it like that.
Reports in the past few days that the club had reached a verbal agreement with former captain Xavi to take over the managerial reigns at the club appear to have been dashed, though, as the 133-times capped Spaniard has reportedly inked a one-year extension to his contract as head coach of Qatari team Al Sadd.
"In those moments of doubt that's when I feel most comfortable".
Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong previously claimed that it "bothered him" watching the Azulones play and said they 'don't want to entertain the fans'.
Bilbao's Iker Munain said Madrid had again been lucky with decisions.
"So there is no euphoria because we haven't won anything yet". "People have to look at themselves and be critical of their own performances". "We are doing very well".
Eden Hazard will miss Real Madrid's game away at Bilbao.
In place of Varane was the Brazilian Éder Militao, who returned to have participation with the team after the 30 minutes played in the victories against Eibar (3-1) and against Real Sociedad (1-2).
