    • 90+4' FULL TIME. A great response in the second half from Madrid as they go eight points clear of Barcelona at the top of the table.
    • 90+2' Mallorca don't look capable of securing a winner and it is a real shame that they will get nothing out of this game having played so well for an hour.
    • 90+1' We will have four minutes of added time.
    • 90' Ramis, Oezil and Benzema get involved in a flashpoint as they shove each other around.
    • 88' Mallorca are furious as the ball hits Ramos in the chest and it is never handball. Ogunjimi's protests earn him a yellow card.
    • 87' Tissone replaced by Alfaro as Mallorca look for an equaliser.
    • 86' Coentrao is booked, for timewasting I believe.
    • 85' GOAL! Real Mallorca 1-2 Real Madrid! It's Callejon! Both Higuain and Benzema fail to convert as Aouate stands his ground, and with the Mallorca defence hesitant the midfielder arrives at the edge of the box with a brilliant, dipping finish.
    • 84' Confirmation that Castro was booked a minute ago. Not sure why.
    • 83' Casadesus is replaced by Jose Luis Marti for Mallorca.
    • 82' Just eight minutes remaining now for Madrid to find the goal that will take them eight points clear at the top of La Liga.
    • 80' Kaka almost pulls out a wonderful pass but the ball to Callejon is cut out by Mallorca.
    • 79' Can Madrid go on and win this now? They certainly have all the momentum.
    • 77' Disallowed! Alonso takes the free-kick and when Ramos rises ahead of Aouate to head home he is ruled offside. Replays show he had just strayed into an offside position.
    • 76' Cendros, already on a booking, is lucky to stay on the pitch when bringing down Ronaldo with a messy tackle.
    • 75' Madrid hit the bar! Ronaldo takes aim some 30 yards from goal in the left channel and surprises everyone by lashing a ridiculous, swerving, dipping effort which cannons off the woodwork with Aouate beaten!
    • 73' A change in attack as goalscorer Hemed is replaced by Marvin Ogunjimi.
    • 72' GOAL! Real Mallorca 1-1 Real Madrid! Higuain draws Madrid level. It is a superb pass through from Oezil and Higuain drifts onto the ball and sees his low effort deflect off Tissone and over Aouate.
    • 70' A stunning effort from Kaka. Coentrao rolls the ball square to the Brazilian, who takes a touch to stun the ball and then sees his curling effort from 25 yards tipped over the bar.
    • 68' Pereira scuffs an effort from 20 yards but Casillas dives to his right to turn the bobbling shot round the post. Ramis is free from the corner but can't reach the ball.
    • 67' Ronaldo gets it all wrong again as he pulls out the stepovers on the left wing and over-hits his cross. The Mallorca fans absolutely lap it up.
    • 65' Ronaldo has been on the periphery of this game and after cutting in from the left he rifles a shot down the throat of Aouate.
    • 63' Oezil pumps a ball into the box but nowhere near a Madrid shirt. Despite the fact they have so many attackers on the pitch now.
    • 61' Double change for Madrid as Fabio Coentrao and Kaka replace Marcelo and Arbeloa. Mourinho doesn't mind doing his three substitutions early, does he?
    • 60' Casadesus is ruled offside when racing onto a ball over the top and into space, but he was in his own half! Terrible officiating.
    • 59' Callejon dived and Ivan Ramis was furious, going head-to-head with the Madrid man.
    • 59' Callejon pulls the ball down in the box and goes to ground claiming a penalty, but the referee is unmoved.
    • 58' Pablo Cendros clatters into Ronaldo, who makes the most of the contact, and earns a booking for his troubles.
    • 57' Tissone goes into the book for taking a free-kick from the wrong position and then showing a bit of dissent.
    • 56' Stat from Infostrada: "Real Madrid had not conceded a first half goal in a La Liga away match since January 3 2011 - a string of 19 away matches in the league."
    • 54' From the set-piece, Hemed rises to meet the ball at the back post but directs his header wide of the post.
    • 53' Ramos gives away possession with a sloppy pass and Fernando Tissone does superbly well to show off some tricks and then win a corner.
    • 52' Mallorca, by the way, have dropped 14 points from winning positions this season, which is the worst in the league.
    • 51' A lovely first-touch from Oezil as he spreads the ball wide and Madrid are knocking the ball around with elan. Ozeil then plays the ball into Benzema, who spins and then whacks his volley over the bar.
    • 50' Ronaldo takes offence at some close attention in the box and squares up to his marker as Madrid win a corner. However, they get the set-piece all wrong as Oezil is caught offside.
    • 48' Pepe looks to release Ronaldo with another searching ball over the top but Mallorca cut off the supply line to the forward.
    • 47' Madrid have replaced Lass with Gonzalo Higuain, which is no surprise whatsoever.
    • 46' KICK OFF!

    • 45+1' Madrid go close with the last kick of the half as a shot whistles just wide of the upright.
    • 45+1' We will have one added minute.
    • 45' Madrid hit the post! Oezil wins a free-kick near the corner flag on the right wing and Alonso whips in a fine set-piece that is headed against the woodwork by Ramos! Pepe can't connect on the rebound.
    • 43' The stats show that Madrid have had 58 per cent of possession but they can't find a way through, with Ronaldo halted as he embarks on a dribble.
    • 42' As things stand, Barcelona can cut Madrid's lead to just two points with a victory against Real Betis tomorrow.
    • 40' A pass finds Callejon on the right wing but his delivery is terrible. The camera cuts to Mourinho, who looks to be fairly unimpressed.
    • 39' GOAL! Real Mallorca 1-0 Real Madrid! You can't say it hasn't been coming. Mallorca go short from a corner and when Castro delivers the cross, Hemed connects with a fantastic diving header to put the ball into the far corner.
    • 37' Ramos snaps into a tackle in midfield and the ball bounces into the path of Benzema, but his first-time volley bounces kindly into the arms of Aouate.
    • 36' It is worth reiterating that Madrid will go eight points clear of Barcelona if they win tonight. Given they have the best away record in La Liga they will certainly expect to.
    • 34' Now Callejon gets some heavy treatment by the touchline as Pablo Caceres ploughs into him. Mallorca aren't afraid to mix things up tonight.
    • 32' It is Ronaldo who takes it in trademark style but his fearsome effort flies straight into the arms of Dudu Aouate.
    • 31' Pepe sprays the ball forward and Ronaldo controls with his back to goal, only to be knocked to the floor. Free-kick to Madrid...
    • 30' The ball squirms into the path of Oezil but again his touch is lacking as he fails to find a team-mate. Disappointing again from Madrid.
    • 28' A good chance for Mallorca. Casadesus takes a square pass in midfield and surges forward, holding off Ramos before sliding a shot low and wide of the far post.
    • 27' Ronaldo appears to be shaping up to release Benzema with a cheeky backheel but thinks better of it.
    • 26' It would be nice to see Madrid bring on Nuri Sahin in the second half to try and keep control of the ball more in midfield.
    • 24' Still little of note from Madrid in the final third and Mourinho is unlikely to be impressed by their efforts in the first half here.
    • 22' A moment of hesitation from Pepe in defence but the Portuguese recovers as Madrid recover.
    • 20' Castro with a snide foul on Alonso in midfield as he chops the Madrid star's legs away from him. Madrid fail to make anything of the free-kick though.
    • 18' Again Madrid start to construct a decent-looking passing move but it collapses when Benzema loses possession 20 yards from goal. Madrid are lacking something in the final third.
    • 16' Diarra intercepts the ball in midfield but while the ball rolls into the path of Oezil, the Germany international can't keep control.
    • 15' Ronaldo wins a free-kick live on the left but Mallorca bundle the ball clear.
    • 14' Hemed finds a bit of space 25 yards from goal and unleashes an effort that flies wide.
    • 13' Jose Maria Callejon shoots into the side netting but is caught offside. Replays show it was a marginal decision at best.
    • 12' Controversy! Casadesus goes into the box and is clearly caught by Diarra as he goes to ground. It looked a penalty at first glance but Madrid are relieved to see the referee play on.
    • 10' Mallorca go close! Victor Casadesus meets a cross from Hemed and tries to flick the ball through his legs and past Casillas with his heel, only to see his effort roll wide.
    • 9' Madrid construct a nice passing move but when Mesut Oezil tries to come infield he is brought to ground by a fair challenge from Gonzalo Castro.
    • 8' Cristiano Ronaldo threatens to get away from his man for the first time but is halted by a cute interception.
    • 7' Alvaro Arbeloa rises well to meet the set-piece as it comes in from the right though and heads clear. Excellent worm from the Madrid right-back.
    • 6' Ramos is caught out when Tomer Hemed blocks his pass and then pulls on the forward's shirt to concede a free-kick...
    • 5' Madrid enjoy their first glimpse of a chance. Sergio Ramos delivers a teasing pass through the heart of the Mallorca defence but Karim Benzema can't quite get on the end of it and control.
    • 4' Xabi Alonso leaps in the air to challenge for the ball but is clattered by a Mallorca player. He gets up, shakes his head and will continue.
    • 3' Madrid are caught napping at a throw-in and Fernando Tissone escapes down the left before driving in a low cross that forces Pepe to stick out a leg and clear.
    • 2' A tame start in Mallorca with Lassana Diarra enjoying some early touches. For the duration of this game I will not be referring to him as Lass, by the way. Not a fan of that.

    • 18.55 Some Opta stats to get you in the mood: "Jose Mourinho’s men are on a run of six straight league wins on the road: the club record is nine from 09/10. Real Madrid are unbeaten at Mallorca in the league since 2005/06 (W3 D2). Real Madrid are the best away side in La Liga this season with 22 pts from 27 available, eight more than any other side (Valencia, 14). If Madrid maintain their goalscoring record (3.6 per game) they will beat the record for a season in Primera (107 in 89/90) by 29."
