Live Commentary

  • A terrific Madrid derby with plenty of entertainment. Madrid started the game impressively but soon showed apprehension as Getafe got back into the game thanks to a beautiful solo goal from Parejo. Getafe started the second-half brightly but were punished for a lapse in concentration as Benzema played in Ronadlo for Real's third. Arbeloa's sending off resulted in the men in blue getting a goal back but they couldn't find that elusive equaliser. Big win for Jose Mourinho who will be boosted by the return of Kaka. Will 2011 be Real's year? I'm Ross Mackiewicz and I bid you goodnight. Stay tuned on Goal for post-match reaction.!

  • Been an entertaining game here in the Spanish capital as Getafe have fought back from two goals down to reduce the deficit to just the solitary strike. Madrid dominated the opening fifteen minutes with Ronaldo converting a penalty and di Maria constructing a stunning goal for Ozil. Parejo's piece of genius has got his team right back into this and will be fancying their chances for an equaliser in the second period. Real have their work caught out if they are to claim all three points. Join us for the second-half!

    Diarra with a long range strike that is gathered by Codina into his chest. The Frenchman showing confidence that he lacked before this fine run in the team. Been a real asset to Mourinho in the last few weeks.
  • 41'
    Di Maria again orchestrating beautiful moves as he plays in Benzema who thrashes the ball across goal but no one is there to a poke a toe onto it. Ronaldo didn't anticipate the cross.

    Yellow CardParejo
  • 38'
    Di Maria burst down the right after giving himself a head start thanks to a delicately timed touch but as he steers in his cross into Benzema the ball comes back up and hits the Frenchman on the arm. A reminder of Madrid's advantage on counter-attacks.
  • 36'
    The football on display from Getafe really has been impressive. When Ozil put Real 2-0 up you did fear for them but they deserve a huge amount of credit for they way they have fought back into this contest. Top game at the moment!
  • 35'
    FREE HEADER FOR MANU! But he completely misses it. Beautiful cross from Torres but it may of been offside.

  • 30'
    It was evident in the last ten minutes that Madrid were giving their opponents too much time on the ball and Getafe have capitalised thanks to a piece of genius from Parejo. Improvisation was needed and that's what the home support got.
