Real Madrid 3-2 Malaga FT! Benzema 9' Rolan 18' Casemiro 21' Castro 58' Ronaldo 76'


22:41 (IST)25 NOV 2017


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.


22:37 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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.

22:35 (IST)25 NOV 2017

90' 3 minutes added on. 

22:35 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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. 

22:33 (IST)25 NOV 2017

89' Substitution for Real Madrid. Borja Mayoral in, Karim Benzema out.

22:33 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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.

22:31 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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.

22:30 (IST)25 NOV 2017

85' One more Malaga attack comes to nothing as Kiko Casilla sweeps to take the ball away from the feet of Chory Castro.

22:29 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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.

22:26 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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.

22:25 (IST)25 NOV 2017

80' Substitution for Real Madrid. Theo Hernandez in, Toni Kroos out.

22:24 (IST)25 NOV 2017


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.

22:22 (IST)25 NOV 2017

77' Casemiro with a flying header inside Madrid's defensive box to thwart another Malaga attack.

22:20 (IST)25 NOV 2017


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.

22:19 (IST)25 NOV 2017

75' Cristiano Ronaldo to take it!

22:19 (IST)25 NOV 2017


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.

22:18 (IST)25 NOV 2017

73' Malaga have a freekick in Madrid's half. Can they conjure up something here? 

22:16 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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.

22:15 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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.

22:15 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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.

22:13 (IST)25 NOV 2017

68' Malaga with poise and intent here. They almost break through once again after splitting the Madrid defence with some quick interplay.

22:13 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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.

22:11 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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.

22:10 (IST)25 NOV 2017

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.

22:08 (IST)25 NOV 2017


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.

22:06 (IST)25 NOV 2017

61' Substitution for Real Madrid. Luka Modric in, Isco Alarcon out.

22:05 (IST)25 NOV 2017

60' Substitution for Malaga. Penaranda out, Borja Baston in!

22:04 (IST)25 NOV 2017

59' Madrid have a freekick on the left flank near the corner flag. However, it comes to nothing as Madrid cry foul as Casemiro is brought down inside the area. Nothing doing says the ref.

22:02 (IST)25 NOV 2017


Malaga saunter about in the final third before releasing Chory in space in the centre. He is afforded too much space and he lets one rip with his left foot and beats Casilla to equalize. 

22:01 (IST)25 NOV 2017

56' Isco emerges out of the ruins after a coming together with Recio. Malaga are swift on the move after the freekick is taken but Keko's cross is a microsecond too late for Rolan and it comes to nothing.

21:59 (IST)25 NOV 2017

54' Vasquez has had plenty work with here tonight. But his final product is embarrassingly poor. And has been throughout the game.

21:58 (IST)25 NOV 2017

53' Vallejo throws himself in the way of a Penaranda shot to block it but Malaga recover possession. In the end though, a tame effort from 20 yards hardly tests Kiko. Modric is all set to come on for Madrid.

21:57 (IST)25 NOV 2017

Ronaldo cuts one back from the left wing and Kroos goes for it from right outside the area but Roberto somehow gets in the way of it and deflects it out for a corner. Corner comes to nothing however.

21:55 (IST)25 NOV 2017

50' Malaga win a freekick in their defensive half after Marcelo hacks into a Malaga defender. They are now on front foot as they remain patient in the final third. But finally, Keko's cross for Rolan is too heavy and it comes to nothing,

21:53 (IST)25 NOV 2017

48' Lucas Vasquez tries to whip one in but Roberto parries it. Madrid lingering in the final third. 

21:52 (IST)25 NOV 2017

47' Vasquez can't get to the end of a through ball from Karim Benzema and the ball rolls out for a goalkick.

21:52 (IST)25 NOV 2017

46' Real Madrid patient in possession, finding pockets of space with their intricate passing. But just as the try to break into the final third with Carvajal trying to release Vasquez on the right side, he is flagged offside.

21:49 (IST)25 NOV 2017

PEEEEEEEEEP! And we're off again. Real Madrid will attack from right to left as they try to end the night with a bright smile on their faces and 3 points in their kitty.

21:34 (IST)25 NOV 2017

That's that in the first half. A little controversy towards the end but Madrid lead at the break.

21:33 (IST)25 NOV 2017

45+3 Malaga score! No! It's ruled out! What is going on?

Baysse got to the end of the freekick that was taken from almost the halfway line. But it's an infringement as he put his hands on the back of Vallejo to reach the ball.

21:33 (IST)25 NOV 2017

45+1' Malaga try to create from the back once again. But Madrid intercept and are on the counter again. Toni Kroos is brought down in the middle but the ref says play on. Adrien is then hacked to the ground by Marcelo and he gets a yellow card. That's just cynical.

21:30 (IST)25 NOV 2017

45' 3 minutes added on and Malaga are on the front foot. But Carvajal is up to the task and wins a throw-in for Madrid deep into their defensive half.

21:28 (IST)25 NOV 2017


Carvajal with a peach of a cross from the right flank. Ronaldo rises and meets it but his shot is clawed away in desperation by Roberto. Great save!

21:27 (IST)25 NOV 2017

42' Keko can't reach a ball from Recio as it races to the touchline. Madrid have a goal-kick.

21:26 (IST)25 NOV 2017

40' Marcelo floats one into the area but Roberto comes out and claims it to nullify yet another Madrid attack.

21:24 (IST)25 NOV 2017

38' Rolan tries to go for goal as he gets to the end of a Penaranda ball into the left side of the area. But his shot is tame and too far away from the mark.

21:23 (IST)25 NOV 2017

36' Brilliant save by Roberto! 

Lucas Vasquez and Isco combine down the middle to free up Ronaldo inside the area. Ronaldo goes for it with his left foot but Roberto flies with his arms outstretched to nudge it out of relevance. Lucas Vasquez is down. He was laid into by Keko as he played the ball to Ronaldo. He is up now though.

21:21 (IST)25 NOV 2017

35' Paul Baysse in for Juankar.

21:20 (IST)25 NOV 2017

35' Not good news for Malaga. Their no.7 Juankar is being carried off in a stretcher. 

21:19 (IST)25 NOV 2017

34' Juankar is down and the medical staff is on the pitch. Looks like the game will be halted for a brief amount of time.
