    • Getafe CF
    • Real Madrid
    • 90+4 And that's it from the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez - Madrid survive a second half rally from Getafe to move top thanks to first half goals from Higuain and Ronaldo.
    • 90+3 One last chance for Getafe but Leon's effort is palmed away by Casillas.
    • 90+1 Four minutes of added time.
    • 90' Super last ditch challenge from Ramos denies Manu a clear sight of goal. Corner.
    • 89' Getafe dominate a frantic finish but fail to make much of that dominance. Madrid push up and force the home side all the way back to Mario.
    • 88' Alonso is withdrawn for Mosquera as Pelligrini runs down the clock.
    • 87' Ronaldo breaks for the visitors but his effort dips just wide.
    • 86' Albin draws a free-kick from Garay, which warrants a yellow card. Leon fires goalwards but Casillas punches for a corner.
    • 85' But the visitors and soon to be league leaders break with Guti and Ronaldo. The latter drops his shoulder before firing straight at Ustari.
    • 84' Possession stats for the last five minutes read 55-45 in favour of the home side, who are having a real go.
    • 82' Real begin to play some keep ball in an attempt to run the clock down.
    • 81' Guti replaces brace grabber Higuain in the aftermath of the goal.
    • 80' Celestini's tame effort strikes Garay and falls to Leon. With the goal at his mercy and only Cassilas to beat, the winger fires home to give the home faithful hope.
    • 80' Albin replaces club captain Casquero for the last ten.
    • 79' Cortes' deep cross is well defended by Ramos, as the hosts continue to crank up the pressure.
    • 78' Getafe continue to pour forward but always look suspect to a break. Alonso attempts to find Ronaldo but, without enough angle on his ball, it runs through to Ustari.
    • 76' Casillas' goal is under threat again as Leon whips in the resulting corner but Mario is just eased out of the opportunity by Ramos.
    • 74' Leon cuts in from the left and his dipping, viciously swerving effort is beaten away by Casillas. Superb effort and stop!
    • 73' Getafe work the ball well in a tight spot down their left but if they are to get anything from this game - even further consolation - then they'll have to get the ball forward with more urgency.
    • 71' Higuain flashes a cross across the six yard box that is just beyond Ronaldo - any touch there and that was five.
    • 69' And he draws a free-kick from Casquero in the middle of midfield. Alonso searches out Ronaldo, but the Portuguese star's attempted headed lay-off has too much on it and the move breaks down.
    • 68' And the Madrid legend immediately begins to link the play. Madrid enjoy a period of good possession for the first time this half.
    • 66' And it is van der Vaart - rather anonymous this half - who makes way.
    • 64' The home side continue to have the better of this half as Raul readies himself to come on.
    • 63' Getafe win a corner following Mane's dangerous looking delivery. The delivery is poor but Celestini lobs the ball back into the visitors' box. Miku breaks the offside trap but under pressure rather scuffs his effort and Casillas collects.
    • 61' Leon drives just over the bar of Casillas - that's another chance. If the home side can take one of these opportunities we'll be in for a grandstand finish.
    • 59' Higuain finds himself in acres of space and bearing down on goal following Alonso's searching ball but his touch lets him down and he can only cross too close to Ustari, who collects.
    • 57' This is a completely different game from the first half. Getafe are more than matching their more illustrious city neighbours. Only if they had started the match like they have started the second period...
    • 55' Chance. Manu elects to shoot from distance when he probably would have been better served playing in a colleague.
    • 53' Having said that, Madrid slice the home side open with Ramos and Higuain down the right. The full-back was almost in on goal there but Higuain's attempted back heel lacked the required power.
    • 51' Getafe - following those half time substitutions - look a far more solid outfit.
    • 50' The visitors make little of the free-kick following that cynical challenge.
    • 49' Manu's attempts to burst through the visiting defence are thwarted by throng of defenders. Madrid break with Ronaldo but he is scythed down by Mario, who is duly booked.
    • 48' The home side have rung the changes at half time: Celestini on for goalscorer Parejo and Manu replaces Gavilan.
    • 47' And are on the attack straight away but Ronaldo's attempted through ball is easily cut out.
    • 46 Madrid get the half underway.
    • - The teams are back out on the pitch and the second half is almost upon us.
    • - That frantic first-half left little time for me to re-direct you to the breaking news in Spain that Luis Aragones has rejected an offer to return to Sevilla to take over as coach following the dismissal of Manolo Jimenez. So, here it is.
    • 45+1 Half time with little other action of note.
    • 44' It is getting a little feisty now. A real derby atmosphere despite the score.
    • 42' That goal has really knocked the visitors off their stride and Getafe move toward the break in the ascendancy.
    • 40' Big delay for some injury treatment for Casillas.
    • 38' Getafe grab a contentious consolation. Casillas attempts to reclaim a fumbled cross but Parejo slides in to feed Leon - leaving the Spanish international prone in a heap outside the box. Leon returns the ball to Parejo and the midfielder fires into an empty net amongst calls of a lack of sportsmanship from the visiting players.
    • 38' Buts wait there's life in the home side yet.
    • 37' Great strike from Ronaldo to make it four. The former world player of the year bamboozles the home defence with some sharp feet before hammering home from a tight angle. What a strike!
    • 35' Getafe just cannot get into this one.
    • 32' Should have been four! Ramos meets Van der Vaart's cross with a thunderous diving header that Ustari just manages to get hands to.
    • 31' Granero opens his body and looks to whip his effort around Rafa but the defender stays big and the former Getafe man has to settle for a corner.
    • 30' Big claim for a penalty as Casillas clatters into Miku but the referee brings the play back for an offside.
    • 29' Madrid continue to retain the ball incredibly well and their hosts are chasing shadows.
    • 27' The claims of a penalty from the home faithful are waved away.
    • 25' Granero almost makes it four but his effort whistles past the post.
    • 23' Higuain does it again. Having latched onto Gago's through ball he rounds compatriot Ustari to slot home from close range and put the visitors three goals to the good.
    • 22' Getafe, often the bogey team for the so called bigger sides, could be on the end of a handsome beating here. They are pursuing a very open approach.
    • 20' Gago leads the break away and feeds Van der Vaart, who in turn finds Higuain bearing down on Ustari. The Argentine gets the ball out of his feet before firing across his countryman to double the visitors lead. Clinical.
    • 17' Getafe come again but Madrid break again. Higuain feeds Ronlado and the former Manchester United man draws a sharp save from Ustari. Great effort.
    • 15' Getafe stride forward down the right but Madrid regain possession and break.
    • 13' GOAL!! What a strike. Ustari has no chance as the free-kick swerves this way and that before nestling in the top right hand corner.
    • 12' A quick shift of weight from Higuain has Rafa at sixes and sevens but the full back handles the ball as it flies past his mid-drift. Free-kick just outside the box. Ronaldo over it.
    • 10' Higuain has a half chance but fails to tame a fierce Ronaldo cross and the chance has gone.
    • 8' Casquero intercepts a loose Garay ball forward and looks to free Miku down the right but his cross-field ball has too much on it. Goal kick.
    • 6' The visitors have a free-kick deep in Getafe territory. Granero's cross is easily headed clear but Alonso picks up the loose ball and fires goalwards. Ustari pushes it around the post for a corner.
    • 4 Following a solid period of possession, Alonso swings over a deep cross but it is just too far ahead of Van der Vaart - who gamely stretches but heads well wide.
    • 2 The home side win an early corner. Mario rises highest but his tame header drifts wide for a goal kick.
