Live Commentary

  • 86'
    Cristiano Ronaldo denied on the line by Tommy Meyer, but the Portuguese star is able to laugh it off.
  • 84'
    Goal Andy
  • 84'
    And there's the fifth! A slick passing move is finished by Jese Rodriguez and this is becoming embarrassing for LA.
  • 78'
    Another good save from Perk, who stops Morata's shot from close range
  • 73'
    There was nearly a fifth there for Madrid, but Brian Perk was able to rush out and clear from the feet of Ronaldo.
  • 49'
    Madrid is just being mean now. Morata scores to make it 4-1 to the Merengues.
  • 49'
    Goal Morata
  • Halftime now, and Madrid look value for money, comfortably ahead 3-1. Di Maria and Higuain have been superb.
  • 43'
    Higuain should have had his second there with the goal at his mercy, but his hesitation allows a panicked defense from Franklin and Sunders to scramble the ball away.
  • 40'
    SubstitutionAlex Nacho
  • 39'
    Robbie Keane does well to bring another save out of Casillas. If the hosts are to get another, you can bet he'll probably be involved.
  • 36'
    A third for Madrid in this wild first half! Jose Callejon slips behind Galaxy goalscorer Lopes and tucks his shot in the bottom corner.
  • 36'
    Goal José Callejón
  • 23'
    The Galaxy pull one back! David Beckham curls a free kick into the box, and after Omar Gonzalez heads it back across the goalmouth, David Lopes is there to bundle it in.
  • 23'
    Goal David Lopes
  • 20'
    Robbie Keane makes it behind the Real defense, but Casillas is there to make the stop on the Irishman.
  • 11'
    Goal Ángel Di María
  • 11'
    Angel Di Maria comes up big again! Given time, he cuts into the box from the right and gets a nasty left-footed shot inside of Josh Saunders' near post.
  • 3'
    I can hardly describe how excellent that move was from Real. Di Maria split two Galaxy defenders with the pass, and you'd have needed an atomic clock to time Higuain's run any better.
  • 2'
    Goal Gonzalo Higuaín
  • 2'
    And Madrid has already found the net! Higuain gets on the end of a beautiful Di Maria ball and finishes. Too easy
