    Time:90'
    • Real Madrid
    • Getafe CF
    • 90+3' FULL TIME! Ronaldo makes the headlines again, and that's seven goals in two games for Cristiano Ronaldo! Stunning, and Real reduce Barcelona's lead at the top of La Liga to five points. Thanks for joining our LIVE coverage tonight!
    • 90+2' GOOOAL! RONALDO COMPLETES THE HAT-TRICK! He cheekily chips the penalty down the middle of the goal, and that moves Ronaldo five goals clear at the top of the Liga scoring table
    • 90+1' PENALTY! Ronaldo and Mane chase after the ball along the right channel, and Mane gets the wrong side before sliding into Ronaldo from behind. He might've just got a touch on the ball, but the referee signals for a penalty
    • 90' Benzema receives the ball wide right, and curls in a tremendous ball across the face of goal WHICH RONALDO AND ADEBAYOR BOTH FAIL TO CONNECT WITH! What a chance that was!
    • 89' The Spaniard gets the ball back, takes a touch, and SHOOTS! TIPPED OVER THE BAR BY USTARI! Fabulous save
    • 88' Mere minutes remaining then, as the imperious Xabi Alonso spreads play right towards Di Maria
    • 87' Di Maria gets an unfortunate offside call as the linesman erroniously flags him on the left wing
    • 86' Adebayor breaks clear down the middle, and he unselfishly passes right to RONALDO! WONDERFULLY-SAVED BY USTARI AT THE NEAR POST!
    • 85' Real continuing to huff and puff here, and Getafe do look like shipping another
    • 83' REAL SUB: Adan off, Tomas on
    • 82' Diarra catches Borja late in the middle of the park, and is shown a yellow card
    • 81' Benzema dances in from the left, before squaring the ball just ahead of Adebayor in the box. Ustari then passes the ball straight to Di Maria, who SHOOTS! Just over the near post!
    • 80' The ball is looped to the back stick... and palmed clear by Ustari
    • 79' Di Maria squares from the right to Adebayor, who draws a defender and passes left to Ronaldo who SHOOTS! Deflected wide for a corner
    • 78' That'll do it. Getafe have wilted in this half, and Madrid have punished them for it. Impressive stuff from the hosts
    • 77' GOOOOOAL! BENZEMA SCORES WITH HIS SECOND TOUCH! Xabi Alonso lifts an exquisite ball over the Getafe defence and into the box, which Benzema brings under control with one touch, before knocking the ball into the top-right corner with his second. Absolutely stunning goal
    • 76' REAL MADRID SUB: Adebayor and Benzema on, Ozil and Higuain off
    • 75' Di Maria nutmegs Mane embarrassingly easily on the right wing, drawing a heavy foul from the Getafe defender - who goes into the book
    • 74' Both Adebayor and Benzema are readying themselves on the wing, as Mourinho looks to mix up his forward line
    • 73' Ozil with the ball in acres of space on the left wing, but his eventual ball into the box is headed wide for a throw
    • 71' That's one former Real Madrid man for another, then, as Michel brings on Borja - who played just under 40 senior games for Real in his time at the Bernabeu!
    • 71' GETAFE: Parejo off, Borja on
    • 70' Di Maria drives through the middle of the pitch, before drawing the left fullback and laying the ball off right to Ronaldo. Ronaldo takes a touch, before dinking yet another disappointing ball into the box, which is easily headed clear
    • 69' Boateng catches Alonso late in the middle of the park, and is shown a yellow card
    • 68' Ozil almost connects with a clever ball through the Getafe defence, but Ronaldo just gets in his way and the ball trickles wide
    • 67' Ronaldo finds himself in space on the right again, and once again his final ball lets him down - dinked into Ustari's hands this time
    • 66' Ronaldo charges along the Madrid right, and tries to pick out Higuain with a low cross... under-hit, and easily cut out
    • 65' Miguel Torres passes inside from the right to Boateng, but the Getafe move breaks down as the play is switched left
    • 64' GETAFE SUB: Casquero off, Mosquera on
    • 63' The ball is lofted from the right to Higuain, in acres of space! HUGUAIN HEADS TOWARDS GOAL! HELD BY USTARI! Disappointing effort from the Argentine, who had more than enough time to bring the ball under control
    • 62' Ronaldo and Marcelo exchange passes on the left wing, before the Portuguese winger pings the ball crossfield
    • 61' Di Maria dances around Parejo on the left wing, before lifting a high cross to the back stick which is nodded clear
    • 60' Parejo drives along the left wing for Getafe, before pulling the ball back to CASQUERO ON THE EDGE OF THE BOX! FIRED WELL WIDE! Shocking effort, with the whole goal to aim for
    • 59' That was Ronaldo's 48th goal of the season. Spectacular
    • 58' GOOOAL! RONALDO MAKES IT TWO FOR MADRID! Higuain latches onto a low ball into the box, drawing the goalkeeper out before laying the ball left to Ozil. The German unselfishly squares the ball past Ustari to Ronaldo, who passes the ball into the back of the net. Classy goal
    • 57' Getafe's fans cheer OLE as their side string a series of passes together in Madrid's half, but the final ball is still conspicuous in its absence
    • 56' Adan is back up to his feet, but doesn't look entirely comfortable. Pepe hoofs the ball forwards, as the game gets back underway
    • 55' Colunga chases after a long ball over the top for Getafe, and Adan comes out to slide the ball clear with a tremendously brave piece of goalkeeping. He takes a heavy knock on the shoulder, and stays down
    • 54' Ronaldo stands over the ball... and SHOOTS! SIDE-NETTING! It's a Ronaldo firecracker - up and over the wall at pace. Stunning effort
    • 53' Ozil tries to lift a ball past Boateng, who is penalised for a handball some 35 yards from goal
    • 52' Miguel Torres has the ball in space wide right, but his low ball into the box is intercepted by Carvalho. Carvalho tries to play a one-two with compatriot Ronaldo, but his return ball is over-hit - to much groaning from the Bernabeu
    • 51' Marcelo races towards the box from the left wing, but Arizmendi catches him with a brilliant sliding tackle from behind
    • 50' Marcelo finds Ozil, who in turn picks up Ronaldo some 35 yards out. Ronaldo carries the ball to the left wing, before passing backwards. The ball is eventually pinged to the right corner flag for Higuain to chase, but it goes straight out for a goal kick
    • 49' Higuain exchanges passes with Ronaldo on his way towards the edge of the box, but his return ball is limp and falls straight to a blue shirt
    • 48' Marcelo dispossesses Colunga on the left wing, before firing a low ball along the flank that just eludes Di Maria and flies out for a throw
    • 47' Marcelo is squeezed off the ball wide left, before Getafe counter at pace. The ball is swung into the Real box, but knocked wide of the right post
    • 46' Welcome back for the second half! Getafe have huge mountain to climb if they're to get back into this, but Jose Mourinho won't be happy until his Madrid side put a bit more daylight between themselves and their derby rivals
    • 45+1' HALF TIME! That's it for the first half, and Getafe have grown and grown into this match! Madrid looked in cruise control early on, but they return to the changing rooms lucky to be ahead. Rejoin us in a few moments for the second half!
    • 45' Swung into the middle and HEADED GOALWARDS BY COLUNGA! BLOCKED! COLUNGA FOLLOWS UP WITH A LOW SHOT! JUST WIDE OF THE RIGHT POST! Madrid survive, just!
    • 44' The free kick is slammed straight into the wall, before Diarra concedes another free kick right by the left corner flag with another clumsy challenge
    • 43' The ball breaks to Casquero 25 yards out, and Carvalho only just misses him with a horribly hight boot! If he'd've connected with the Getafe man, that surely would've been a red card! As it stands, it's a Getafe free kick in a dangerous position
    • 42' Looped to the near post... and headed clear by Pepe
    • 41' Boateng carries the ball towards the right wing, where Torres forces a corner off Marcelo
    • 40' Mane picks out Colunga on the left wing, but the latter has just strayed offside
    • 39' Arizmendi is given far too much space as he picks up the ball on the edge of the box ahead of Carvalho. He takes a touch out wide, and SHOOTS! SIDE-NETTING!
    • 38' Di Maria holds the ball up on the left wing, before swinging in another curling ball into the box to RONALDO! HEADED UP AND OVER THE CROSSBAR!
    • 37' Xabi Alonso finds Ronaldo again in the middle of the pitch, and the former world player of the year touches the ball on first-time for Marcelo to chase into the box... but Ustari gets there first
    • 36' The move eventually breaks down in Madrid's third, and the hosts move the ball crisply up to Ronaldo, 45 yards from goal
    • 35' Mane holds the ball up under pressue on the left, before passing to Parejo who knocks the ball all the way back to his defence
    • 34' Parejo doesn fantastically well harrying the Madrid midfield, and is rewarded as a blocked pass falls to Colunga on the left wing. Colunga carries the ball to the corner of the box, and SHOOTS! Saved well by Adan, low to his right
    • 33' Mane with the ball on the left flank now, but his attempted cross is blocked by Di Maria. The ball falls to Parejo, who charges into the box and goes down under Arbeloa's shoulder-barge! Getafe appeal for a penalty, but the referee waves play on
    • 32' Sardinero chases after a low ball along the left wing, but Pepe gets there first to calmly stroke the ball out of play for a throw-in
    • 31' Di Maria tries to counter for Real, but runs into trouble in the shape of Mario, who comes in with a strong challenge on the edge of his penalty area
    • 30' Getafe counter, and swiftly win a corner on the right... which is headed clear by Ronaldo. End to end stuff here, and Getafe are still plugging away!
    • 29' In comes the second corner from the same side... and Ronaldo blazes a volley a mile over the bar
    • 28' Taken to the back stick... and headed backwards by Ronaldo. Ozil lines up a left foot piledriver on the efge of the box... AND HIS SHOT IS DEFLECTED JUST WIDE OF THE LEFT POST!
    • 28' Madrid counter, and Marcelo charges into the box from the left wing. He stumbles under pressure, but does well to force a corner
    • 27' Swung in from the left... and headed clear
    • 26' Colungo plays a clever ball through the Madrid defence for Arizmendi to chase, and Pepe is forced to knock the ball out for a corner under pressure
    • 25' That's a real shame for Getafe, who have fallen behind just as they were starting to look a bit more composed on the ball
    • 24' GOOOOOAL! MADRID TAKE THE LEAD! Ozil picks out a lovely ball to the back stick, and Ronaldo rises to meet it with a prodigious leap before heading the ball inside the far post. Brilliant header, cracking goal
    • 23' A long diagonal finds Higuain in the right channel, and he races off towards goal. The argentine refuses to take on the shot at pace, however - cutting back inside and running into a defender
    • 21' This is better from Getafe, who are finally enjoying some time on the ball. It's all in the back two thirds, however, and Jose Mourinho's team look typically tight at the back
    • 20' Getafe try to build an attack, but Carvalho steps in to sneak the ball away, before playing a lovely low ball for Ronaldo to chase on the left. Ronaldo is stopped with a firm sliding challenge on the edge of the box, however, and the visitors are back in possession
    • 19' Boateng jinks past a couple of white shirts, but his eventual low ball forwards is easily cut out. Madrid look to counter, and the ball is quickly shifted forwards to Higuain who holds it up in the box and SHOOTS! Mis-cued by the Argentine, and gathered by his compatriot Ustari
    • 18' Carvalho lopes forwards for the corner... which is headed clear just ahead of him. Getafe back on the ball, with Boateng
    • 18' Di Maria cuts inside and SHOOTS! Deflected just wide of the top-left corner! Corner ball
    • 17' Mane chucks the ball in short, but Madrid regain possession and switch play to the left and Di Maria
    • 16' Ronaldo ahead of Mane on the Getafe left, conceding a throw-in
    • 15' Cata Diaz toys with Marcelo deep in Getafe's half, and is rather fortunate when the Brazilian fullback slides in with a rash slide to concede a free kick
    • 15' Di Maria eventually goes to pick out the killer ball over the top to Ronaldo, but it's over-hit and Ustari collects
    • 14' Pepe finds Arbeloa on the right, as Madrid enjoy plenty of time on the ball in their own half
    • 13' Alonso switches play left for Madrid, where Ronaldo cuts back inside and passes backwards. Patient stuff from both sides
    • 12' Mane tries to control a long ball on the Getafe left, but Di Maria sneaks in to nick the ball away
    • 11' Lovely stuff from Madrid, as Ronaldo dinks a ball over the top of the defence with his back to goal, but Marcelo is just offside
    • 10' The ball is lofted towards Higuain, who mis-control sends it into the path of RONALDO! The Portuguese shoots inside the box, but it's well blocked
    • 9' Madrid win another free kick in the middle of the park, as Getafe continue their rugged approach to this match
    • 7' Di Maria lofts a Hollywood diagonal up towards Ozil, who brings it under control with a sublime touch. Typically swaggering stuff from Madrid early on
    • 6' Ronaldo and Di Maria stand over the ball... AND DI MARIA HITS IT! Into the wall with his left boot. Waste
    • 5' Ronaldo carries the ball towards the edge of the box, before being hauled down by Cata Diaz. Free kick Madrid, some 20 yards out
    • 5' Pepe plays back to Adan, as Madrid enjoy plenty of time on the ball early on
    • 4' Marcelo finds a yard of space on the left wing, before cutting back inside. He lifts in a lovely cross with the outside of his left foot, which Higuain can only head well wide of the far post!
    • 3' Higuain almost latches onto a dinked ball through the defence, but the referee brings play back for a foul by Di Maria
    • 2' Ronaldo runs into trouble on the left flank, under heavy pressure from Miguel Torres. The winger goes to ground, but the ref waves play on
    • 1' After a moment's silence in honour of Seve Ballesteros, we're underway in this Madrid derby.
    • 20:55 GETAFE: Ustari, Mario, Torres, Diaz, Mane, Boateng, Casquero, Parejo, Arizmendi, Colunga, and Sardinero
    • 20:55 MADRID: Adan, Carvalho, Pepe, Arbeloa, Marcelo, Alonso, Ozil, Diarra, Di Maria, Ronaldo, Higuain
