    Time:90'
    • Málaga CF
    • Real Madrid
    • 90+2' THERE GOES THE WHISTLE! Benzema heads over the bar and that is the last action of the match. Real go top. Excellent stuff. Thanks for joining our Spanish action this evening. Has been an exciting night.
    • 89' Going to be two minutes added to the 90.
    • 88' The three subs have not exactly weakened Real. They continue to dominate as we head for the final whistle. Canales has been booked for stopping a quick free-kick.
    • 87' Stadsgaard across to tackle Ronaldo. The Malaga defender has enjoyed a decent game this evening and has also scored.
    • 86' Benzema fires wide of goal. Almost added the fifth goal from inside the box. Tight angle. Unlucky.
    • 85' Weligton has brought down Pedro León. That looked a stonewell penalty, but is not given.
    • 84' Rondon knocks a tame shot wide of the goal. Sums it up really for Malaga in this second half.
    • 83' He likes his chewing gum and he will like the look of that La Liga table tonight. Mourinho's men look every inch title candidates.
    • 82' Galatto is alert to come and claim Pedro León's chip. Surely all over here.
    • 81' Canales is on for Ozil. Quality stuff from the German playmaker this evening.
    • 80' Delightful play by Ozil to set up Benzema. His shot is beaten out by Galatto. Fine save.
    • 79' Here comes another chance for Real, but not before Galatto stops a Ronaldo shot.
    • 78' Well, two goals for Ronaldo and two for Higuain. Has been a fruitful night for Los Blancos.
    • 77' Going to be another change out there for the home side. Portillo is on for Apoño.
    • 76' Lovely three-man move. Pedro León chips the ball to Ronaldo who heads to Benzema. The French striker hesitates and his shot is blocked.
    • 75' Pedro León tries his luck from 30 yards. Galatto seems to go down in installments, but he makes the save.
    • 74' Ozil attempts to feed Benzema in the box, but the pass is cut out. Malaga camped in their own half.
    • 73' Good skill by Rondon. Gets the cross in, but Alonso is waiting for that. He clears and Real can build again.
    • 72' Higuaín departs with Bezema introduced. Like Di Maria, Mourinho is quick to pat him on the back. A job well done as they say.
    • 72' Pedro León goes for goal. His shot lacks energy and bobbles wide. Should maybe have looked to play in Ronaldo, who has a pained expression.
    • 71' Pedro León back defending almost immediately. Mourinho has obviously given him orders to track back when the team loses possession.
    • 70' Di Maria gets a pat on the back from his manager as he trots off to be replaced by Pedro León.
    • 69' Sandro Silva replaces Fernando for Malaga.
    • 68' Alonso attempts to sidefoot a shot high into the corner of the net from distance. Over the bar.
    • 67' Chance for Malaga! Mtiliga gets free in the Real box, but over the bar. Needed a bit of composure. Bit of a rash finish.
    • 66' Di Maria turns the ball onto his left, but he can't get hold of the shot. Ball with Galatto.
    • 65' Mourinho punches the air before turning to his subs. Pedro León is going to be coming on soon
    • 64' A FOURTH GOAL FOR REAL! Ronaldo tees up Higuaín and this time he makes no mistake as he drills the ball low into a corner of the net. Fine finish.
    • 63' Ozil feeds Higuaín, but he smashes over the bar. Unlucky. Fine effort from the edge of the box.
    • 62' Alonso heads Gamez's long throw-in out of his box. Real with the ball.
    • 61' Real with 61% of the ball, but they have taken their foot off the gas for a few minutes. Just shows what can happen when a team stops concentrating.
    • 60' Fernando fouls Ronaldo and is going to be booked.
    • 59' Arbeloa is booked for a late chop at Owusu-Abeyie.
    • 58' Ronaldo delivers a cross at pace, but the ball flashes across goal.
    • 57' Nice bit of defending by Marcelo as Malaga threatened to cut through on the right. Luque fires in a shot, but wide of goal from 25 yards.
    • 56' Mourinho continues to chew his gum. He looks far from happy with that goal. Not what is needed.
    • 55' A GOAL FOR MALAGA! Luque's corner is stabbed home by Stadsgaard from five yards. Maybe not all over yet.
    • 54' Casillas flaps at that ball, but Real get it out. The visitors continue to impress, but Malaga have another corner. Alonso needing a bit of treatment.
    • 53' Malaga win a corner which Luque is going to take.
    • 52' Albert Luque replaces Edu Ramos, who looks disgusted with life.
    • 51' Weligton gets involved with Higuain. He slaps the Real Madrid player on the face. Referee never spotted it otherwise he would have been off.
    • 50' Malaga simply been outplayed. This could turn into a rout if the home side are not careful.
    • 49' GOAL FOR REAL! Ronaldo low and hard to the bottom right hand corner of the net. Surely all over now. Quality penalty.
    • 48' Di Maria preparing to come back on as Real keep the ball. Penalty to Real. Edu Ramos brings down Ozil in the box. Stupidity.
    • 47' Real in control in that first period with Ozil and Khedira really working hard. Di Maria is down injured. He will need a bit of treatment. Fernando challenged him there.
    • 46' Real have the ball and they are ready to kick off.
    • 45+1' There goes the whistle! All over for the first period. Los Blancos well on top. A fine first half from them. Really dominant.
    • 44' Looks like Real will be heading top of the table this evening. A minute to be added.
    • 43' Gamez is booked for a late foul on Marcelo. Poor tackle by the home player. Meanwhile, sub keeper Arnau is booked for complaining.
    • 42' GOAL FOR REAL! Ozil races into the box and supplies Ronaldo to tap the ball into the net from five yards. Fine move by Real on the break.
    • 41' Jose Mourinho is not happy about that decision against Ronaldo. He makes his feelings known.
    • 40' The home fans not losing heart. Making plenty of noise. Ozil supplies Ronaldo, but the Real forward is penalised for a foul on Weligton.
    • 39' Owusu-Abeyie too greedy and he has his pocket picked. Wanted too long on the ball and the chance is going for Malaga.
    • 38' Owusu-Abeyie is the latest player to be caught offside. Went too early there.
    • 37' Apono takes the free-kick, but hits the wall and Rondon is offside.
    • 36' Owusu-Abeyie has the ball. Carvalho then fouls Apono on the edge of the box. Malaga have a free-kick.
    • 35' Di Maria picks out Ronaldo. He tries to play a cute little pass, but Stadsgaard is on hand to block.
    • 34' Going to be another booking. Edu Ramos is booked for hammering Di Maria.
    • 33' Real with an astonishing 65% of possession. That tells you enough about the pressure, but Malaga still a threat on the break.
    • 32' Owusu-Abeyie dashes into the box and crosses, but Rondon just fails to connect with the ball. Better play by Malaga.
    • 31' Casillas forced to save from Rondon. That was a fine bit of play as drove to the byline.
    • 30' A bit of arguing between several players. Arbeloa is involved before Alonso is booked for pulling down Apono.
    • 29' Weligton caught out by the accuracy of the cross and the visitors have the lead. That is Higuaín's fourth goal of this campaign.
    • 28' GOAL FOR REAL! Higuaín whacks home a volley at the back post. Superb goal from Ronaldo's cross.
    • 27' Di Maria seeing a lot of the ball out wide for Real. Malaga have plenty of bodies back on that occasion. They divert the ball away.
    • 26' Higuaín is penalised for a late push on Robson. Malaga living dangerously.
    • 25' Fine cross by Di Maria is knocked over his own bar by Weligton with Galatto in no man's land. Did well to get that off his line.
    • 24' What a shot by Khedira! A venomous shot smacks off the bar from 30 yards. So unlucky.
    • 23' Apono attempts a shot from 30 yards. Was always flying wide. Real back on the attack. Wave after wave of Real attacks out there.
    • 22' Stadsgaard seems to be in the right position at the right time. Makes a telling intervention and Malaga can finally get out.
    • 21' Di Maria and Ronaldo link up in the middle of the home half, but Malaga certainly defending well.
    • 20' Alonso with a couple of corners. Neither finds a team-mate. Real at least building up a head of steam. Khedira tries to turn in the box, but Stadsgaard is on hand to clear the danger.
    • 19' Ozil races to the byline, but Stadsgaard turns that behind for a corner.
    • 18' Higuaín hits the post. Superb shot from edge of box before Di Maria fires the rebound wide. So unlucky. Best effort of the night so far.
    • 17' Ronaldo gets a look at goal 25 yards. Tries to get some swerve on that effort, but high and handsome and over the bar. Malaga will take those all night long.
    • 16' Owusu-Abeyie attempts to pick out Fernando, but the ball runs through to Casillas. Real can build again from the back.
    • 15' Fernando tosses a cross into the Real box from out wide, but too much pace on that. It flies over the goal.
    • 14' Khedira is booked for blocking Mtiliga's quick free-kick. Really needless.
    • 13' Ronaldo tries his luck from a free-kick. Must have been 40 yards out. Hits the top of the wall. Wasted chance
    • 12' No team has scored more goals than Malaga this season, but no team in La Liga has conceded more. They've scored 20 and conceded 16.
    • 11' Pepe heads out Owusu-Abeyie's corner. Solid defending at the heart of the defence. No real chances for either side yet.
    • 10' Alonso fouls Owusu-Abeyie. Late one. Lucky to avoid a booking.
    • 9' Arbeloa throws over a cross, but the home side hammer that ball out of the box. Needs to be better than that.
    • 8' Real Madrid will go to 17 points if they win this. A point ahead of Barcelona and Valencia, who played out that terrific match at the Camp Nou with Barca winning 2-1.
    • 7' Weligton takes a tumble, but no foul. Mourinho looking quite studious on the visiting bench.
    • 6' Real Madrid displaying a patient approach. The home side content to soak it up and hit on the break.
    • 5' Quincy Owusu-Abeyie shows a decent turn of pace. Really got hold of that shot from 22 yards, but just wide. Fine bit of play. Good tempo to this one already.
    • 4' This time Ozil delivers from the other side, but Ronaldo heads wide of the target in a crowded area.
    • 3' Real win an early corner. Alonso takes a corner. Ball breaks to Di Maria, but his shot is deflected over. Another corner.
    • 2' Still trying to catch my breath from that Barcelona match. What an advert for the Spanish game that was. Let us hope for more of the same in this one. Real are the men in black this evening, Malaga in blue and white stripes.
    • 1' Straight into this one. The stats are simple: if Real Madrid win, they go top of La Liga.
  • Summary
