PEEP! PEEP! PEEP!

That's that, and Cristiano Ronaldo has ended his drought and put behind a dreadful 85 mins to score the goal that won Real Madrid a precious three points against a superb Getafe outfit. 

A wonderful match to cover, thanks for reading! Anirudh Menon signing out.

Toodle-ooo
...
94'OH GETAFE! OH GETAFE! OH GETAFE! Molina plays the ball forward, Portillo almost picks out Lacen on the counter, but Nacho heads it clear... where Fajr tries an ambitious overhead kick that goes toward the corner flag
...
92' Toni Kroos almost gifts Getafe a point with a horrendous pas back that trickles toward Casilla, but the keeper does ever so well to reach it just before Molina. Madrid are living dangerously here...
...
91' THREE MINUTES ADDED ON
...
90' OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME. A comedy of errors in Madrid's defence ends with Casilla punching Nacho's head off whilst punching the ball straight to Lacen... who smashes an absolute thunderb****** just wide of the net, with Casilla woefully out of position
...
88' OH MY LORD! Bergara finds himself in space inside the box as Molina plays him in with a sublime ball, but the defender's finish is as expected; poor.... and it trickles into Casilla's hands
...
Of course, it was him. Of course, it was him. Isco unlocks Getafe's defence with a wickedly delicious ball, and Ronaldo absolutely leathers it into the bottom corner. 

He may do nothing for 85 minutes, but it's for these moments of magic that you retain your faith in the great man!
...
85' GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! CRISTIANOOOOOOO RONALDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
...
84' Arambarri is taken off for a more defensive option in Bruno Gonzalez as Jose Bordalas prepares his side for the final onslaught
...
83' Isco dances around the edge of the box and curls the ball around the defence and just ahead of Achraf!
...
82' Karim Benzema is taken off after an excellent performance and Borja Mayoral is on in his stead
...
81' OH MY! ARAMBARRI! THE MIDFIELDER RACED THROUGH ON GOAL, BISECTING RAMOS AND NACHO, BEFORE SMASHING THE BALL JUST WIDE! WHAT A CHANCE
...
80' Molina does ever so well to race past Nacho on the outside, but Llorente does brilliantly to stand up to him and bully him into touch
...
79' Achraf tries to play in Ronaldo in behind Antunes, but the Portuguese superstar had run himself offside
...
77' OH PORTILLO! The forward runs into space down the right wing, turns around and with atleast three decent options around him, he passes it straight to Hernandez, who is two yards away from me
...
76' Madrid exchange passes at the edge of the box, but Fajr does supremely well to intercept the ball and win a freekick off Kroos to relieve the pressure on his defense
...
74' Madrid have the ball in the back of the net, but he was a mile offside when smashing the ball in, and the line ref spots that correctly
...
72' HOW! HOW IN HELL DID CRISTIANO RONALDO MISS THAT! ONE YARD OUT FROM GOAL... ONE YARD.... HE MISSES THE GOAL!  Kroos' freekick had been delivered to the far post where the ball had been knocked back across goal to Ronaldo, who was all by his lonesome!
...
71' Substitutions for Madrid as Vazquez is taken off for Isco and Marcelo is withdrawn for Theo Hernandez!
...
69' Molina holds up play well and tries to play in Portillo but Ramos does ever so well to stop the move
...
68' Getafe win a corner, but it's utter rubbish. 
...
67' Getafe takes off Amath (who has run himself into the ground, amazing performance) and bring on the solid, reliable Lacen. 
...
66' Ooooo! On first look it looked close, but on the other angle it was evident.... the ball sailed meekly wide. 
...
65' OOO! FREEKICK ON THE EDGE OF THE BOX FOR REAL MADRID. Guess who's going to take it?
...
62' Amath and Fajr drive at Real Madrid yet again, and win a corner... there is no doubt who are on top right  now... the corner though is futile. 
...
61' Amath runs at Vazquez and wins Getafe a corner... the home crowd are bouncing, loving every bit of it as their team take it to their much more illustrious opponents. A La Liga special, this.
...
60' Djene does superbly to bully Vazquez off the ball... but then gives it straight to Achraf. The young Moroccan, though, is stopped in his tracks by a sliding Antunes takcle
...
58' Nacho goes into the book as he stops Molina from instigating another Getafe counter... Real Madrid are reeling here!
...
57' Portillo has come to life... he sits Achraf down on his haunches with a slick move inside the box but his ball into Amath is closed down well by Nacho
...
OH MY! OH MY! That could well be a Nacho own goal, by the by, but Getafe enact a superb counterattack of their own and Portillo's driven cross is poked in by a combination of Nacho and Molina 
...
56' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! MOLINAAAAAAAAAA!
...
54' nothing comes off the corner
...
53' OH HO HO HO! What a move Madrid! Marcelo's twinkling feet starts a superb Madrid counter that mixes some slick one-touch passes and deft touches to feed the ball back to Marcelo. Juan Cala heads it off Marcelo's afro, back to his keeper who fumbles and Ronaldo almost makes the most of it but the ball wriggles out from under him and to Vazquez. He in, turn is closed down by Antunes, but the ball bounces off to Marcelo who draws a superb save from Guiata with a lovely volley
...
52' Benzema tries a shot/cross that is well read by Guaita and he keeper avoids a potentially embarrassing situation.
...
51' Kroos' delivery is toward the far post where Ramos tries to send it back into the box where it's thumped clear by Bergara
...
50' Ah! Superb turn from Achraf lures Antunes into a foul at the very edge of the box - a little to the right, and Kroos will look to curl it in... 
...
49' Real Madrid counter off a Getafe freekick but Antunes does superbly to marshall the ball off of Vazquez
...
47' Yellow for Toni Kroos as he ploughs into Mauro Arambarri... Getafe are moving further and further up the field
...
46' Getafe start on the front foot, completely oblivious of their role as "minnows" and are pushing Madrid back from the off
...
PEEP! WE ARE OFF AGAIN!
...
PEEP! PEEP! HALFTIME

REAL MADRID LEAD BY THE ONE GOAL THANKS TO THE RETURNING KARIM BENZEMA, BUT GETAFE ARE PLAYING RATHER WELL AND THE SECOND 45 SHOULD BE A BELTER

...
47' Getafe haven't given up the ghost just yet and are pressing Madrid all over the pitch... and this portends well for the second half as well
...
46' Vazquez tries to set up Ronaldo but Djene does ever so well to make sure he gets to the ball first. A  few seconds later Djene repeats the trick - this time on Benzema

Two minutes to be added on
...
45' Another free kick as Antunes smashes into Vazquez for what feels like the 1,346th time. Nothing comes off the freekick near the halfway line
...
43' Real Madrid have the advantage now and are now passing the time playing the ball amongst themselves comfortably
...
40' Oh Damian Suarez... the Getafe man dances past Nacho and Llorente, but the latter gets back and does superbly to stop Damian's run into the box. 
...
OH GETAFE! Ronaldo takes a free quickly and plays the ball forward, Cala slides to intercept but only succeeds in diverting the ball to Benzema's feet. He races into the box, hurdles a challenge, and absolutely leathers it into the bottom corner
...
39' GOOOOOALLLL! BENZEMAAAAAAAA!
...
38' Marcelo tries to pick out Asensio with an ambitious pass but Djene reads it perfectly.... Madrid come right back, though, and Marcelo ends up jinking into the box but once again Djene reads the Brazilian's mind and steps in to stop what could have been a dangerous situation
...
37' Nothing comes off the corner. Yet again
