  • 89'
    The game is winding down now as Real Madrid prepare for massive celebration at full time. The end of an outstanding season for Jose Mourinho's men. 100 points, 121 goals, and the Liga title.
  • 87'
    Mallorca are risking conceding another goal as they pile men forward looking for a goal. Madrid are finding a lot of space. Can they grab a fifth before the end of the 90 minutes?
  • 85'
    The party atmoshphere has overcome Santiago Bernabeu now and the Madrid fans have started a Mexican wave, they have been waiting for this for three years.
  • 83'
    Ronaldo picks up the ball just outside the area and attempts a powerful left-footed shot at goal but Chco is there again to deny him with a brave block.
  • 82'
    SubstitutionDudú Aouate Juan Calatayud Sánchez
  • 81'
    Mallorca make an unplanned substitution as Aouate suffers an injury while picking up a simple shot in the box. He clutches the back of his leg and goes down. Juan Calatayud comes on for the last ten minutes of La Liga season.
  • 79'
    Off the line from Chico!!! Ronaldo peels off to the back post and attempts a looping header at goal but the Mallorca defender's positioning was spot on as he heads the ball away from danger!
  • 77'
    Madrid make their third and final change as Fabio Coentrao comes on to replace Marcelo at left-back.
  • 76'
    SubstitutionMarcelo Fabio Coentrao
  • 75'
    Madrid are only 15 minutes away from picking up La Liga trophy and the atmosphere is starting to build in the Santiago Bernabeu. It promises to be some show after the match.
  • 73'
    Madrid continue to search for more goals but Mallorca have defended well for the past couple of minutes. However, with so much firepower in the home side, you feel that they will likely create more chances.
  • 71'
    Ronaldo drives through on goal and looks poised to take the ball around Aouate and score but the Mallorca goalkeeper stretches out a hand to palm the ball away from the feet of the Portuguese!
  • 69'
    It looks as if Real Madrid will become the first side in a top European league to reach 100 points in a single season. A truly incredible achievement from Jose Mourinho and his men.
  • 67'
    SubstitutionGonzalo Higuaín Ángel Di María
  • 67'
    Another Real Madrid change now as Higuain comes off to be replaced by Angel Di Maria. There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the striker in recent weeks suggesting he will be off in the Summer. Is this the Argentine's last match in a Madrid shirt?
  • 65'
    Xabi Alonso eventually stamps his authority back on the match and returns to passing the ball at will in and around the centre circle, he really is integral to the way Madrid play.
  • 63'
    Yellow Card Chory Castro
  • 63'
    The match is fairly scrambled at the moment. Both teams are struggling to keep hold of possession.
  • 61'
    It would not be a Real Madrid match without Pepe being involved is some kind of drama. The Portguese went down very easily in his own box to earn a free kick and rashly kicked out at Chori Castro whilst on the ground. If the referee sees that, he's off.
  • 59'
    Madrid counterattack at high pace through Ronaldo who drives forward before sending Ozil down the left of the Mallorca box. The German passes up the opportunity to go for a hat-trick and attempts to pick out Higuain at the back post but Mallorca manage to scramble the ball away for a corner.
  • 58'
    Assist Marcelo
  • 58'
    Goal Mesut Özil
  • 57'
    GOOOOOAAAAAL FOR REAL MADRID!!! Mallorca's comeback is cut short thanks to Ozil, who gets on the end of a Marcelo cross to cushion the ball into the far corner with his weaker right foot. Madrid's three goal advantage is restored.
  • 55'
    The away side have responded well to conceding the third goal. They are playing with more confidence when they very easily could have gave up. Can they come back from a two goal deficit however? It's a big ask.
  • 53'
    SubstitutionBigas Fernando Tissone
  • 53'
    Mallorca make another early change as Fernando Tissone comes on to replace Pedro Bigas.
  • 52'
    Assist Ví­ctor
  • 52'
    Goal Chory Castro
    GOOOOAAAAL FOR MALLORCA!!!! That wasn't in the script for Madrid! Chori Castro receives the ball on the left and rifles a shot towards the near post that proves too hot to handle for Casillas! 3-1.
  • 49'
    Assist Gonzalo Higuaín
  • 49'
    Goal Mesut Özil
    GOOOOOOAAAAAL FOR REAL MADRID!!! Ohhh a lovely finish from Ozil! Higuain finds space in the penalty area and lays the ball off for the German who wonderfully chips the ball into the top left corner over Aouate. Looks like game over.
  • 47'
    A change to report at half-time as Alfaro comes on to replace Michael Pereira. Positive substitution from Joaquin Caparros.
  • 46'
    SubstitutionMichael Pereira Alfaro
  • 46'
    Second half underway in Madrid. The hosts are 45 minutes away from picking up the La Liga title for the 32nd time. Still some football to be played first though, Mallorca still have time to spoil the party.
  • Poor from Ronaldo as it does not get off the ground. Just as the ball is cleared the half-time whistle is blown. Real Madrid looking comfortable at half-time with a two goal lead over Mallorca. Join us in 15 minute for the second period.
  • 44'
    Ronaldo fouled on the edge of the box by Caceres and the Portuguese sets the ball up for a free kick...
  • 43'
    SubstitutionArbeloa Raúl Albiol
  • 42'
    An early substitution needed for Real Madrid as Alvaro Arbeloa is suffering from an injury. Raul Albiol is his replacement at right-back.
  • 40'
    Mallorca really need to step up their if they are to achieve their European aspirations in the last match. They have been an attacking non-entity so far in the match.
  • 38'
    Chori Castro has two opportunities to whip a corner kick into the box but sees his attempts well defended by Madrid. Ramos headers the first to safety and Casillas claims the second out of the air before mounting a counterattack.
  • 36'
    Madrid remain dominant but have took their foot off the gas slightly in terms of their attacking pace. A slow tempo to the match at the moment as we approach half-time.
  • 34'
    Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi had been neck and neck for most of the season in search of the league's top goalscorer award but the Argentine has hit 50 goals to this point to the Madrid man's 46. The Portuguese looks set to lose out on his personal accolade.
  • 32'
    Ronaldo picks the ball on the left but is faced with around six Mallorca defenders in front of goal. The Portuguese fizzes a ball into the centre but with no Madrid players around it is unlikely what his intention was.
  • 30'
    Marti attempts to calm thing down for the away side and decides to keep possession for a few moments. He eventually picks out Chori Castro on the left but the Uruguayan's deep cross is not near any team-mates. Madrid reclaim possession.
  • 27'
    It has been extremely comfortable for Jose Mourinho's side so far. They are receving no opposition in midfield which is allowing Xabi Alonso to dictate possession at walking pace.
  • 25'
    @anti_particle has commented on Twitter that he believes that Madrid will walk away with a 3-0 victory. Any advances on this as Real Madrid go 2-0 up?
  • 23'
    Assist Gonzalo Higuaín
  • 23'
    Goal Karim Benzema
    GOOOOOOOOAAAAAL FOR REAL MADRID!!!! A very nice goal from the hosts! Higuain collects a pass from Ozil inside the area and patiently waits for the run of Benzema before the Frenchman receives the ball and slots the ball into the bottom right corner!
  • 21'
    Another record broken by Cristiano Ronaldo! He becomes the first player ever to score against all 19 rival teams in the same Liga season. What a player.
  • 19'
    Assist Marcelo
  • 19'
    Goal Cristiano Ronaldo
    GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALL for REAL MADRID!!! And its Ronaldo!!! Marcelo receives the ball on the left and clips a ball to the back post for the Portuguese who rises high to bullet a header past Aouate! 1-0!
  • 16'
    Ozil turns cleverly in midfield and drives forward before sending the ball out to Ronaldo on the left. The Portuguese jinks left and right but the eventual shot at goal goes wide of the mark.
  • 14'
    Benzema latches on to a ball over the top of the Mallorca defence but it just gets out of his reach and Aouate dashes from goal to clear the ball from danger. It looks a matter of time for Madrid here...
  • 12'
    Michael Pereira launches an attack down the right for Mallorca and whips a teasing cross into the area but Sergio Ramos is there to intercept the ball with sliding clearance
  • 10'
    A good start to the match from the hosts. Mallorca have barely manged to string two passes together so far but that is mainly due to the dominance in midfield by Alonso and Khedira.
  • 8'
    Some neat link-up play on the edge of the box from Madrid sees Benzema lay-off a pass for Khedira who drives through on goal and lashes a shot at Aouate but the Mallorca goalkeeper remains big to deny the German with a strong save.
  • 6'
    Ronaldo steps up and smashes the ball off the wall but possession gets back into the Mallorca box. Higuain scores!!!!!!!! Wait, no! The linesman flagged for offside! That looked harsh on the Argentine!
  • 5'
    Xabi Alonso fizzes a pass into the feet of Sami Khedira who takes a neat first touch past the defender but is brought down on the edge of the box. Free kick in Ronaldo territory.
  • 3'
    The match has started in relatively typical fashion from Madrid. Xabi Alonso is dropping very deep to receive possession and effortlessly spraying passes to the wider areas.
  • 1'
    And we are off! Despite this game being of no real importance to the hosts, notching up 100 points in La Liga would be a fantastic achievement, one that I'm sure Jose Mourinho will be eager to add to his collection.
  • We are moments from kick-off now as the Mallorca players take to the pitch and form a guard of honour for the champions of Spain, Real Madrid.
  • So, what does everyone on Twitter think is on the cards tonight? Will Los Blancos reach this momentous milestone or will Mallorca spoil the title party?
  • You can follow me on Twitter at @MartinMac1 so feel free to post your thoughts, feelings, and predictions on the match. As always, I will post the best comments.
  • This is the starting XI of Mallorca: Aouate; Cendros, Ramis, Chico, Caceres; Marti, Pina; Bigas, Castro, Pereira; Víctor.
  • The teams are in and this is how Real Madrid will be lining up tonight: Casillas; Arbeloa, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo; Khedira, Xabi Alonso; Higuain, Ozil, Ronaldo; Benzema.
  • Jose Mourinho's side were confirmed as La Liga champions with a victory over Athletic Bilbao at San Mames but there is still a lot to play for tonight. If the home side can claim three points this evening, they will reach a record 100 point tally in the Spanish Primera Division. Mallorca still hold slim hopes of finishing the season in a European place. An intriguing match is in store.
