    • FT Getafe 2-1 Real Madrid
    • 90'+4 It's played into the box but Getafe clear. They are nearly there...
    • 90'+3 Castro lunges in on Alonso and Real have a free-kick...
    • 90'+2 Coentrao has been sent off from the bench! He has said something to the fourth official and has been dismissed. He will serve a suspension for that.
    • 90'+1 We are into the first of four added minutes. Could we have a huge shock on our hands here?
    • 90' Ozil drives into the box but he is denied by a brilliant last-ditch tackle by Alexis.
    • 89' Sergio Ramos is in the box as Getafe desperately hack the ball away from the corner. This is really desperate stuff from Getafe, who are hanging on by their fingernails for a famous victory.
    • 88' Real win a corner, but still no sign of Casillas...
    • 86' Lafita drives into the box but takes a heavy touch and Alonso gets back to make a crucial tackle.
    • 85' Getafe tightening up their defence with the introduction of Lacen.
    • 84' Getafe sub: Lacen on, Barrada - the second goal scorer - off
    • 83' Benzema feeds Callejon on the right, and his low shot is saved well by Moya.
    • 81' Morata is straight into the action as he receives Ozil's pass on the edge of the box but fires over from a good position 20 yards out.
    • 79' Real sub: Morata on, Di Maria off
    • 78' That goal came moments after Callejon replaced Marcelo and Mourinho moved to a 3-4-3 formation. No they have just over ten minutes to salvage a point...
    • 77' Has Jose Mourinho made a mistake going to a three-man defence? Can Real recover? Tweet me
    • 76' What a shock this could be! Colunga takes a long ball down in his path and drives forward down the left past Albiol. With Real exposed at the back, Collunga finds Barrada, who fires past Casillas to give Getafe a sensational lead!
    • 75' GOAL! Getafe 2-1 Real Madrid (Barrada)
    • 74' Benzema latches onto a through ball but Alexis is there again to sweep up. Alexis has had a cracking game at the back for Getafe.
    • 73' Getafe sub: Colunga on, Michel off
    • 72' Callejon is warming up for Real...
    • 71' Alexis is clattered by Ramos as he attempts to clear a Real corner. Typical Ramos.
    • 70' Good effort by Di Maria, who wins the ball in the Getafe half and drives towards the box, but his shot comes off the outside of his left foot and swerves wide.
    • 69' Real go close! Benzema fires the ball into the feet of Ronaldo, whose first touch allows him to volley at goal - but it was straight at Moya.
    • 68' Real becoming increasingly desperate for a goal. Pumping high balls into the box, which Getafe are dealing with easily.
    • 67' Arbeloa finds Di Maria, but his pass towards Benzema is spotted by Moya, who is quick off his line.
    • 65' Xabi Alonso looks to keep the move going with a cross into the box, but he over hits it and Getafe breathe again. Alonso has not been anywhere near his best since picking up that injury at the start of the half - Mourinho clearly resisting the urge to replace him with Khedira.
    • 64' Marcelo rolls the ball back to Ronaldo, whose effort from the edge of the box is blocked.
    • 63' Ozil dribbbles the ball brilliantly from his own penalty area and into the Getafe half. He releases Benzema, who cuts in from the right but delays his shot, which is eventually blocked.
    • 62' It seems as though Lopo has been brought on to man mark Cristiano Ronaldo. Following him like his shadow since coming on for Abraham.
    • 61' Benzema straight into the action as he swivels and shoots from ten yards, but that man Valera denies him with a vital block.
    • 60' Real Madrid sub: Benzema on, Lassana Diarra off. Real go with three in attack.
    • 59' Di Maria fires the ball in from the left but Alexis gets across to deny Higuain, who was waiting to pounce.
    • 58' Getafe chance! Castro fires the ball in from the right and Miku, who has Raul Albiol for company, just fails to make contact with his header.
    • 57' Alonso looks to release Di Maria with a through ball to the right, but the Argentine was never going to reach it. Real have lost some of their composure - dangerous times for them.
    • 56' Ronaldo pings the resulting free-kick straight into the wall.
    • 55' Michel is booked for a late tackle. Real have a free-kick 25 yards from goal.
    • 54' Getafe have equalised through Valera! The free-kick is played in from the right and Valera sneaks between Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos to tuck a free header into the bottom corner. Game on.
    • 53' GOAL! Getafe 1-1 Real Madrid (Valera)
    • 53' Getafe have started the second half well. Real Madrid not being allowed to control the game as they were in the first half.
    • 52' Xabi Alonso is back on the field, but isn't moving very freely.
    • 51' Michel floats the ball into the box, but Alexis appeals to the referee as he appears to be impeded on the edge of the box. Little in it if you ask me.
    • 50' Lassana Diarra gives away a foul 25 yards from goal, and Getafe have a chance with the free-kick here.
    • 49' Lafita takes an embarassingly bad tumble in the box and, needless to say, fails to get the penalty he is looking for.
    • 48' Khedira is warming up.
    • 47' Xabi Alonso has twisted his ankle with no one around him. Off balance as he passed the ball, he fell over in a heap.
    • 46' Getafe get the second half underway.
    • HT Real should be more than one goal ahead, given their dominance. But Getafe created a couple of chances as the half went on - and Abraham will be disappointed not to have levelled with a header. Does Mourinho need to change anything at the break? Tweet me
    • HT Getafe 0-1 Real Madrid.
    • 45' Chance for Torres! Castro cuts the ball back from the right but Torres, in space, skies his shot well over the bar. That was a very good chance for Getafe to equalise against a Real side that have clearly taken their foot off the gas.
    • 44' Marcelo fires a cross in from the left, but Higuain's first touch is poor and Moya gathers.
    • 43' Xavi Torres goes into the book for a clear tug on Ronaldo.
    • 42' Real not too fussed about pressing for a second at the moment. They seem aware that Getafe have offered very little in attack.
    • 40' Arbeloa lucky to get away without seeing yellow for a foul for Miku. The resulting free-kick almost finds Valera at the far post - but the flag was up anyway.
    • 38' Real break down the right through Ozil, who almost picks out the perfect pass to Higuain, but it's a foot too far in front of him and the ball rolls into Moya's arms.
    • 36' Long ball over the top for Ozil bounces all the way through to Moya.
    • 35' Real Madrid's early pressure has receded and Getafe are seeing far more of the game now, as Ramos forced to deal with some danger at the back.
    • 33' Getafe come close! A corner comes in from the left - Casillas misses it and Abraham heads wide at the far post. Abraham runs back to position with his head in his hands. That's as close as the home side have come.
    • 32' Marcelo cuts the ball back to Higuain, but his 'fresh air' kick is one he'll want to forget. To be fair, the ball to him at an awkward height.
    • 31' Getafe seeing more of the ball since falling behind but they have offered very little in attack.
    • 30' Who's better: Higuain or Benzema? Tweet me
    • 29' That's Higuain's second goal in as many league games, and that's why he's keeping Benzema out of the srating team at the moment.
    • 28' Real lead through Higuain, who receives Di Maria's through ball and darts between the two centre-backs, rounds the goalkeeper and steers into the empty net. Lovely finish.
    • 27' GOAL! Getafe 0-1 Real Madrid (Higuain)
    • 26' Di Maria looks to release Higuain, but the Argentine striker has been well marshalled by Abraham so far.
    • 24' Getafe feeling their way into this after that early Real storm. Still no threat to Casillas's goal though.
    • 23' Ronaldo is played in by Ozil, but the Portuguese is just offside. I can't remember the last time the ball was in Real's half. Pure domination by Real so far...
    • 22' The resulting corner seems destined for Sergio Ramos's head - but Abraham makes a crucial flick clear.
    • 21' The free-kick goes through the wall, but Moya does well to palm it away to his left.
    • 20' Real win a free-kick 25 yards from goal, and Ronaldo is standing over the ball...
    • 18' Replays show Ronaldo celebrating before he realised Ozil had struck the bar moments ago. A remarkable miss, it really was.
    • 17' But the pressure from Real is constant. Another attack breaks down as Higuain is penalised for a high foot.
    • 15' Ozil misses an open goal. Ronaldo drives into the box and plays a one-two with Ozil. Ronaldo plays it back to the German, who strikes the bar from from 2 yards! A quite staggering miss by Ozil!
    • 14' Real building another attack down that left side. Marcelo playing a big part for Los Blancos early on.
    • 12' Who will Luka Modric replace in the Real Madrid team if - or when - he arrives at the Bernabeu? Tweet me
    • 11' Marcelo picks out Ronaldo with a ball out to the left. The former Manchester United man finds Di Maria, but the Argentine fails to get the ball back to Ronaldo, who was in space for a shot.
    • 9' Castro, playing at left-back rather than his usual left wing position, heads clear after Xabi Alonso swept the ball out to Di Maria on the right.
    • 8' Tight, neat football from Real as they dominate Getafe early on.
    • 6' Chance for Getafe's Miku, who takes a poor first touch in the box when he should have let fly with a volley. Real opened up there.
    • 5' Abraham clearly tugs Higuain back as he looks to reach Di Maria's through ball, but nothing is given. Penalty if you ask me.
    • 3' Real win a free-kick 30 yards out and Ozil quickly taps it to Ronaldo, who lets fly with a very ambitious - even for him- that flies wide.
    • 2' Lassana Diarra, in for Khedira again, is seeing plenty of the ball early on as Real get a feel for this one.
    • 1' KICK OFF. Real Madrid get us underway.
