Real Madrid return to winning ways with a well-earned victory over Malaga. There is some controversy about Ramos' second goal being offside, but it is job done for Zidane's Madrid as they earn three valuable points against a spirited Malaga side.

That's it from me, Sunaadh Sagar (@sunaadh), tonight. Thanks for joining us, and do check Sportskeeda Football for all the post-match fallout from the game.

Good night!

FT: Real Madrid 2-1 Malaga
...
90+4' Madrid are in firm control of the ball, as they attempt to kill the game off.
...
90+1' CHANCE! Toni Kroos sends in another of his free-kicks, and Demichelis nearly scores an own goal with Morata lurking, but the ball flashes wide for a corner. Morata gives away a foolish foul from the set-piece and Malaga have the pressure valve released on them.
...
90' 4 minutes of added time.
...
90' Lucas Vazquez 'earns' a foul after being tugged back by Jony. Real Madrid are in complete control off the ball. Malaga's attacking threat disappeared with Juankar's substitution.
...
88' Great defending! Munoz shepherds Isco off the ball in the box, after Morata had played the midfielder through on goal.
...
87' CHANCE! Toni Kroos sends in a superb cross from the right wing, but Ronaldo sends his header over the far post. It was academic though, as the linesman raised his flag for offside.
...
84' Michael Santos goes into the book for a nasty lat challenge on Nacho.
...
82' Alvaro Morata comes on to replace Karim Benzema
...
81' ALMOST! Ronaldo is sent clear down the left wing, and he opts to shoot a powerful low shot from a narrow angle instead of crossing to Benzema. Kameni nearly makes a mess of the save, allowing the ball to squirm under him, but his defenders bail him out a
...
79' Toni Kroos' delivery from the left is met by Varane's head, but his effort goes wide off the bar.
...
78' Penaranda comes on to be replaced by Michael Santos
...
77' The tackles are flying in now - Camacho goes into the book for a late tackle on Casemiro!
...
75' OFF THE BAR! It's not Ronaldo's day is it?! The forward controls a ball into the box and then lashes a low drive across goal with Kameni well beaten, but watches in agony as his shot hits the inside of the post and goes out!
...
74' OH MY GOD! WHAT A HOWLER! Demichelis plays the ball back to Kameni, who misses the ball entirely. The Malaga keeper then makes a mad dash to clear the ball off the line, and then makes amends by saving Ronaldo's shot from a narrow angle.
...
74' That's a blow for Malaga, as Juankar was getting great joy against Vazquez!
...
73' Juankar goes off with an injury as Martin Demichelis comes on to replace him.
...
72' Jony sets off down the left wing, and plays the ball wide to an overlapping Juankar, but Vazquez slides in to make an excellent interception.
...
70' Malaga have their tails up now, chasing every lost cause and clattering into every 50-50 challenge.... and they say the Premier League is the best in the world. Ha!
...
68' The crowd jeers for a foul on Ronaldo who was being pulled back as he bore down on goal, but the referee waves play on.
...
67' Jony comes on to replace Chory Castro
...
64' WHAT A CHANCE! Chory Castro runs clear down the left wing and bears down on goal, with Navas making a great diving save from the Malaga attacker's shot. 
...
63' MALAGA ARE BACK IN THE GAME! Juankar makes a mug of Vazquez down Madrid's right wing and charges into the box. He hammers a shot at Navas's near post, with the Madrid keeper making a good save, but the ball comes out to Juanpi, who takes a touch and slams the ball into the net. Real Madrid 2-1 Malaga.
...
63' GOAL JUANPI!
...
61' Great defending! Juankar pings in a brilliant cross from the left and Ramos does well to clear the ball with Chory Castro lurking. Navas gets the ball away subsequently with a powerful punch.

Moments later, Nacho concedes a corner as Malaga ramp up the pressure down Madrid's left, but the visitors are unable to do anything with their corner.
...
59' Ramos is back up again - the man is made of adamantium. Meanwhile, Modric sends Vazquez through on the right with a clever pass, but the linesman flags for offside.
...
58' This is perhaps Zidane's worst fear - Sergio Ramos is down with an injury after Penaranda trods on his feet.
...
55' Malaga have sat back in this half- opting for a damage-limitation exercise. Real Madrid are in total control of the ball and are reluctant to up the tempo, passing the ball around like a training exercise.
...
52' The linesman flags for offside after Toni Kroos sends in another free-kick that narrowly evades the head of Sergio Ramos. Moments later, Recio has an optimistic pot-shot from range, but Navas collects the ball with ease.
...
51' Nacho gets the crowd on their feet with a lung-bursting run down the left, but his low cross aimed at Benzema is cleared out by Mikel.
...
49' Ronaldo sends in a tempting cross to the far post from the left wing, but Benzema is offside and the linesman raises his flag.
...
48' Malaga haven't made the best of starts to the second half, misplacing multiple passes out of play.
...
47' Ignacio Camacho goes down after clashing heads with his own player.
...
46' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Malaga get us underway in the second half, kicking off from right to left
...
The teams have exited the tunnel for the second half. Kickoff is moments away! Will Real Madrid make this a rout? With Sergio Ramos chasing a hat-trick, I wouldn't bet against it!
...
That 2nd goal brought up Sergio Ramos' 50th goal in La Liga. He's the fourth highest scoring defender in the Spanish league of all time.

67 – Ronald Koeman
60 – Fernando Hierro
52 – Pirri
50 – SERGIO RAMOS
