    • 71' Goos stat from Infostrada here via Twitter: "Cristiano Ronaldo scores in his 6th consecutive #Ligabbva match. Last Real Madrid player to do this was Van Nistelrooy (7 in 2009)." Follow Infostrada on Twitter
    • 69' GOAL!! Benzema gets his second and Real's third! Wonderful vision from Ronaldo do hit a diagonal pass along the turf and pick out Benzema who finishes first time past Moya! Surely Real are out of sight now?
    • 68' Carvalho goes into the referee's book for a late foul on Pedro Rios.
    • 67' Di Maria juggles the ball as he tries to evade the attentions of Masilela and gets a contemptuous barge from the South African defender!
    • 65' Casillas catches a Getafe corner and his throw launches a swift break. Getafe do well to regroup in a hurry and avoid being caught cold.
    • 63' Remember, coming up right after this match we have Valencia v Atletico Madrid, a very tasty fixture indeed!
    • 61' Just two games into the new league season, and that is already Ronaldo's fourth goal in two games.
    • 60' GOAL!! Ronaldo hits it low to Moya's left and the keeper almost gets a hand to it, but the pace is too much. Real back in front!
    • 59' PENALTY!! Ronaldo is caught by Cata Diaz's stray leg right on the edge of the penalty area and the referee points to the spot! Replays show the foul was committed just outside, but too late! Ronaldo is placing the ball on the spot...

    • 55' Benzema's through ball deflects off a defender and into Coentrao's path and the Portuguese manages to beat Moya! The goal won't count, Coentrao was offside!
    • 54' This time the cross comes in to the near post and Real clear with ease this time.
    • 53' Pepe has to put the ball behind for a corner. Pedro rios's delivery is a dangerous one and Sergio Ramos concedes another corner with a diving header.
    • 52' Real have certainly stepped up up a gear since that chance from Getafe right at the start of the half, and the crowd are responding in kind.
    • 50' SO CLOSE FOR REAL!! Benzema dinks the ball across and Ronaldo hits the post with an overhead kick! The ball bounces out to Coentrao and he has an open goal ahead of him but puts it over!
    • 48' Benzema miscontrols on the edge of the box and the ball runs back to Coentrao. The former Benfica man is leaning back as he shoots and the ball flies high into the crowd.
    • 47' Ronaldo has a look up and lines up a strike... He drills a rasping low effort just wide of the near post!
    • 46' Right from the kick-off Getafe come forward and one shot is blocked before Pedro Rios blazes his follow-up effort over the bar!
    • 46' Getafe get the second half underway! No changes from either side at half-time.
    • 45+1' Half-time is called, and so far Getafe are holding their illustrious Madrid neightbours to a draw.
    • 45+1' Ronaldo strikes, but the dead ball was perhaps too close to the goal for Ronaldo's trademark dipping strikes to have an effect.
    • 45' Coentrao goes on a bursting run forward and is brought down right on the edge of the area! Casquero clipped Coentrao's heels, and gets a booking. No prizes for guessing who will take this fre--kick for Real...
    • 43' Benzema shrugs off his marker as he chases a long ball forward from Pepe, but the flag is up for offside against the striker.
    • 41' real are reasserting their dominance now, stringing together a dozen or more passes as they probe around looking for a way to pick out Ronaldo or Benzema. For the good of the game, let's hope Getafe can go into half-time still on level terms.
    • 39' Miku's second goal of the season has certainly made this Madrid derby a lot more interesting!
    • 38' GOAL!! MIKU LEVELS FOR GETAFE!! Lacen stabs a reverse pass through the Real back line and Miku springs the offside trap, swivels and fires past Casillas right into the bottom corner!
    • 37' Marcelo leaps to head Casquero's cross behind for a corner but succeeds only in heading it off his own crossbar! Carvalho hurriedly clears for a corner.

    • 35' Di Maria whips in a cross that is aimed for Benzema but the France striker is not thinking in the same way and checks his run.
    • 34' SO CLOSE TO A WONDERFUL GOAL!! Marcelo picks out Benzema on the edge of the box and the striker prods a perfectly-weighted first-time gthrough-ball into the path of Coentrao's run. the Portuguese lifts the ball over Moya but it bounces just the wrong side of the far post!
    • 31' Casquero is down again after an aerial clash with Coentrao. The ball is kicked out of play so he can get treatment, but he's on his feet again soon enough. It looks as though Coentrao caught him on the side of the face unintentionally.
    • 30' Getafe still keep int he Real half and Rodriguez is teed up for a strike from 25 yards that flies low and Casillas gets down to save and hold on to it.
    • 29' Pedro Rios hares to the byline to reach a ball over the top and get a cross in, but none of his team-mates are as quick as him.
    • 27' Getafe are already chasing shadows now. Real absolutely dominating the possession. Alonso is now back on the pitch.
    • 25' Alonso has picked up a knock on his ankle. He limps over to the sideline to receive some treatment. The midfielder should be OK to continue.
    • 23' Just in case you were wondering, the first Clasico meeting with Barcelona this season is on December 10 at the Bernabeu. Real Madrid fixtures
    • 21' Ronaldo is penalised for tangling with Valera as the pair fight for the ball, and the Getafe man reacts to the foul. Both get booked.

    • 19' Getafe make progress to the edge of the Real box, but Ricardo Carvalho helps snuff out the attack.
    • 18' The corner is palmed away by Moya but it drops for Sergio Ramos to take a touch and fire into the crowd! The right-back has got an eye for goal, and he should have done much better with that.
    • 17' Marcelo makes a nuisance of himself down the left and wins a corner for Real.
    • 16' Di Maria tries to chip an ambitious effort over Moya's head, but it sails high and wide.
    • 15' Benzema's first goal of the season is a beauty, and the perfect way to warm-up for the Champions League trip to Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday.
    • 14' GOAL!! A wonderful move from Real is capped off by Benzema! Marcelo to Coentrao down the right, squared inside th Ozil and laid off for Benzema to power a finish into the top corner!
    • 11' The Bernabeu crowd is subdued. After this opening spell, they are expecting goals, and soon. They will probably not be disappointed.
    • 10' Ronaldo leaps to meet Di Maria's curling cross and it's a great header on target that Moya has to tip over the bar! Great header, great save!
    • 9' Di Maria controls on the rigth, turns inside and bends a strike wide of the near post. Real have had four shots already. Getafe have barely left their own half.
    • 8' Marcelo's slide-rule pass forward is collected by Mesut Ozil on the edge of the box and the German turns and shoots early, but the effort tamely rolls to Moya.
    • 7' Ronaldo goes on one of his driving runs in from the flank and is brought down by Lacen in midfield.

    • 4' Angel di Maria surges into the box from the rigth and Masilela has to make a vital block at the expense of a corner.
    • 3' Speak of the devil(s), Benzema holds the ball up well inside the Getafe area before spinning and squaring the ball to Ronaldo, who sidefoots wide. First opportunity of the game comes early for Real.
    • 2' Real Madrid have won the last five league meetings between these two sides. Last season they beat them 4-0 here at the Bernaabeu. Cristiano Ronaldo got a hat-trick and Karim Benzema got the other.
    • 1' Real kick off and get this match underway!
    • 18:59 The players are out on the pitch, and we're about to get cracking...
