PEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

And that's that. Real Madrid still halfway here, halfway there. Perhaps the absence of Sergio Ramos at the back showed tonight as they conceded 2 cheap goals. But they were forced to work for every single minute of the game by a resolute Malaga side who have a lot of fight in them.

That's all from the yap centre tonight. That was an exciting encounter. Hope y'all had fun following this. You can sell me that bill of goods on Twitter @goddamnhunter.

Arrivederci!
...
92' Real Madrid are lucky if they get out of this game with all 3 points. Malaga have been working their socks off. They have the chance to mount one more attack. But even that gets blocked off and Madrid transition into attack. That should be it.
...
90' 3 minutes added on. 
...
90' Dani Carvajal once again with the lungs and pace down the right flank. But his cross into the box is headed out of danger. 
...
89' Substitution for Real Madrid. Borja Mayoral in, Karim Benzema out.
...
88' Marcelo surges ahead and combines well with the Madrid midfield before trying to release Ronaldo one-on-one. But his ball is stopped before it can reach the Portuguese and Malaga clear their lines.
...
86' Marcelo delightfully frees up Casemiro on the left side and he tries to whip one into the path of Ronaldo who is waiting at the far post but it is cleared away before it comes to anything.
...
85' One more Malaga attack comes to nothing as Kiko Casilla sweeps to take the ball away from the feet of Chory Castro.
...
84' Real Madrid are now set up defensively with more than half of their players staying put in their own half. Benzema and Ronaldo try to combine to produce some magic but Benzema is flagged offside. In fact, Ronaldo should have been flagged offside right before that.
...
81' Real Madrid are on the ball once again but they're more careful with their approach now. They're willing to play it backwards. Safety first.
...
80' Substitution for Real Madrid. Theo Hernandez in, Toni Kroos out.
...
78' OOOOO! MALAGA COME CLOSE AGAIN!

Borja Baston unleashes a shot from the right side of the box but it goes wide off the far right corner as Malaga flounder a glorious opportunity to equalize.
...
77' Casemiro with a flying header inside Madrid's defensive box to thwart another Malaga attack.
...
76' RONALDO MISSES THE PENALTY AND SCORES OFF THE REBOUND!

Poor penalty from Ronaldo- it was not headed towards the side netting and Roberto makes the save with a diving effort to his right. But the ball balloons into the air and falls sweetly for Ronaldo who slots it home unchallenged. Lucky but that'll do.
...
75' Cristiano Ronaldo to take it!
...
74' PENALTY FOR REAL MADRID!

Nothing comes from Malaga's freekick it and Madrid clear their lines. Malaga recycle the ball back to their goalkeeper. Roberto tries to send a long one to the left wing from all the way back but Madird get to the end of it and start a counter. Modric is brought own by Hernandez as he tries to get to the end of a cross from Vasquez.
...
73' Malaga have a freekick in Madrid's half. Can they conjure up something here? 
...
71' Marcelo tries to whip a grounded cross in but it doesn't quite reach Benzema or Ronaldo and Malaga thwart yet another Madrid attack.
...
70' Carvajal once again releases Vasquez clear but his cross is once again poor and it takes a deflection and falls to no Madrid men as Malaga clear.
...
69' Malaga are getting to the attacking third without much of a hassle here. They are stopped but Madrid will want to stop them earlier than that.
...
68' Malaga with poise and intent here. They almost break through once again after splitting the Madrid defence with some quick interplay.
...
67' Dani Carvajal tries to create something out of nothing on the right side but he has to stop as the referee deems his coming together with the Malaga defender a foul.
...
66' Juanpi falls inside the box as Varane was hot on his heels. No penalty says the ref. However, the replays show Varane almost slapping the lights out of Juanpi from behind. Lucky there for Varane.
...
65' Marcelo has kicked Keko down once again and Keko doesn't seem to wanna get up. He is being taken off here. In comes Juanpi Anor.
...
62' OH RONALDO! HOW DID YOU MISS THAT? HOW COULD YOU MISS THAT?

Dani Carvajal with more industry down the right flank, keeps the ball in possession. Modric then finds Vasquez in space and his ball into the box is decent. It is headed in towards goal by Benzema and all Ronaldo had to do was get any kindof touch on it and he fails to do that as the ball goes out- agonizingly close to the far post.
