    Time:90'
    • Málaga CF
    • Real Madrid
    • 90' And no injury time is played as the ref puts Malaga out of their misery. Madrid top for now but Barcelona are up next!
    • 90' Nice run by Buonanotte and he shoots but parried by Casillas, now Fernandez shoots but Casillas holds that one.
    • 89' Callejon is onside but stops running assuming he was off, Ruben able to claim.
    • 87' Ronaldo gets it on target this time but Ruben bats it away!
    • 86' Ronaldo is tripped after outfoxing Demichelis on the left side of the D. Free-kick that C-Ron will take...
    • 85' MALAGA SUB: Monreal on for Eliseu.
    • 84' Malaga are gamely pushing for something, anything to at least answer the boss's probable request to win the half. Madrid have men back though.
    • 82' The corner is cleared by Ozil, Benzema breaks and Ronaldo has it but he fluffs his pass and sends it straight to Ruben.

    • 80' Callejon smacks one over as he gets a feel of the ball after coming on.
    • 79' FERNANDEZ HITS THE BAR! What a shot, a half-volley from wide left on the bounce. Unlucky. Rondon smacks the rebound over.
    • 78' MALAGA SUB: Joaquin has played well but to no avail; Buonanotte on in his place.
    • 77' Ramos and Toulalan collide and the latter wins the free-kick.
    • 76' Are Real good for the title on a showing like this? Or are you unconvinced that they will beat Barca in the big games? Have your say by Tweeting me here!
    • 75' REAL SUB: Di Maria comes off for Callejon.
    • 73' MAlaga's onslaught appears to have faded as Madrid now play some keep-ball.

    • 69' Arbeloa booked for a late and strong challenge on Cazorla.

    • 47' Subdued start to the second half as Malaga stroke it about nicely enough.
    • 46' The second half is underway at La Rosaleda.
    • - Some of you appear confused that Malaga have a strong British support - I suggest you google the words "Costa del Sol" and "British" and see what pops up.
    • 45' Toulalan is down hurt but gets up as play continues. Half time, Madrid cruising thanks to a C-Ron hat-trick and another goal from Higuain.

    • 31' Malaga think they should have a free-kick as Joaquin again goes down easily, Ramos in attendance this time. No way says the ref.
    • 30' Di Maria miscontrols on the edge of the box, back with Ruben.

    • 21' Shot from Khedira is saved by Ruben who drops it but pounces on the loose ball.
    • 20' Madrid back in their customary position three-quarters of the way upfield. Marcelo on it now, to Kaka as they play keep-ball...
    • 19' Swung in by Apono but a smart save by Casillas to palm it away, he had that covered all day.
    • 18' Free-kick Malaga on the edge of the D after Pepe trips Cazorla, the Portugal defender conned by a heavy touch.
    • 17' Madrid stroking it about nicely now. Already in control of this match.

    • 12' Eight goals in last four games now for the Argentine and nine in eight Liga games this season. Wow.
    • 11' GOAL MADRID! Higuain with another goal! He got in with a diagonal run off the line, and with the keeper over-committed he slid it in from an acute angle wide right. Di Maria with the assist, a fine through ball. Ronaldo and Kaka were offside but they were moving back and not deemed to be interfering. Absurd rule.

    • 6' End to end stuff early on in this match - Malaga aren't looking to contain Real by any stretch.
    • 5' Mathijsen with a good clearance from Kaka's cross. Real come again though...
    • 4' A second look at that Joaquin fall shows that was a clear penalty, Khedira with a reckless challenge; Toulalan, meanwhile, pulled his leg away in time so that was the correct decision. Frantic start!
    • 3' Joaquin is clearly tripped by Khedira but the ref waves play on for that too! Ronaldo's was not a pen but that looked nailed on!
    • 2' Ronaldo takes a tumble in the box over Toulalan's challenge but the ref waves play on.
    • 1' The first half is underway.

    • 18:55 Manuel Pellegrini: "We are taking things game by game, analysing it, evaluating it and trying to improve,. But we must learn how to digest this defeat (to Levante), take it on board and get the points from our next match."
