Coliseum Alfonso Pérez


That's all for today. Goodbye
Next up, Getafe go to Rayo Vallecano looking to recover from back-to-back defeats, with Madrid travelling to Warsaw to play Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.
Real Madrid move to the top of the LaLiga table after a narrow victory over Getafe. It was Militao who scored what turned out to be the winner just three minutes in, getting on the end of a corner from Modric and directing his effort past Soria. The away side dominated throughout but couldn’t get a second to make their lead in the match a comfortable one. Valverde and Modric both struck over in the first half with Rodrygo forcing the goalkeeper into a save, but late drama in the first 45 minutes came through Vinicius. Believing he had kept the ball in on the left, the Brazilian powered towards the box before being taken out by Milla. There was no hesitation from the referee who pointed to the spot, but the game was pulled back with the ball having gone out in the build-up. Ancelotti’s side then had a flurry of shots from Rodrygo, Tchouameni and Modric before they thought they had breathing room. Leading the line, Rodrygo chipped the ball over Soria and into the net after latching onto a pass from Valverde, but VAR got involved to disallow the goal, with the 21-year-old in an offside position. Getafe did have one chance, with the ball falling to Duarte, but he drilled a low shot wide.
90' + 4' Madrid now have a free-kick inside the Getafe half after Vinicius is pushed to the floor by Suarez. He is lucky not to get a yellow card with the Madrid man bursting down the left.
90' + 3' There's a shout for a penalty after Dakonam is clattered into by Carvajal from behind. However, the referee waves for the game to continue.
90' + 1' Madrid have the ball inside the Getafe half and intends to keep it there. Asensio drives the ball forward and plays it to Alaba who is free down the left but his cross is knocked behind for a corner.
90' There will be four minutes of additional time.
89' Getafe have a chance through Milla after a corner is cleared to his feet, but he volleys over after chesting the ball down.

82' Substitution for Getafe. Algobia is replaced by Seoane.
81' Asensio and Nacho are about to come on for Madrid.
80' Madrid have controlled the game and the possession. They have attempted 650 passes so far, their most in a single match this season.
77' Chance for Madrid once again with Soria showing some composure. Valverde smashes it low from outside the box with the goalkeeper collecting the ball on the second attempt. With Vinicius rushing towards him to crash in the rebound, he slowly moves towards the ball before picking it up. For a short time, it looked like the Brazilian was going to get there before him.
76' Valverde spreads the ball from right to left, finding Vinícius with a low-driven pass. Looking for a one-two with Rodrygo on the edge, the striker gets the ball caught under his feet and Getafe win possession.
75' Alaba is given the responsibility to put the ball in from the left, but he curls the ball over the head of everyone and the chance is wasted.
74' Madrid win a free-kick in a crossing position after Vinicius is tripped by Algobia.
71' Madrid lose possession in the Getafe third. Camavinga drives the ball forward and looks for Valverde on the right. Usually careful with possession, Valverde does not look up before returning the ball to the Frenchman, with it rolling instead to the home side.
70' Madrid holds an interesting shape when in possession of the ball inside their own half. Alaba and Carvajal position themselves as wingers, with Modric operating as part of a defensive three with Rudiger and Militao. The Croatian looks to pick the ball up from deep and either carry it forward or play the ball inside with an incisive pass.
68' Madrid have been sloppy in possession in the last couple of minutes. Out of defence, they have launched two passes out of play for a Getafe throw-in.
M. El Haddadi
Borja Mayoral
66' Substitution for Getafe. Former Madrid striker Mayoral is replaced by Haddadi.
Carles Aleñá
66' Substitution for Getafe. Alena is replaced by Manzanera.
63' Poor from Valverde. Under no pressure, he drives a low cross straight at Duarte. The ball then comes to Camavinga who curls it well over from the right side of the box.
60' Getafe have won only one of their last 13 games in LaLiga against sides from Comunidad de Madrid (D3 L9), 1-0 v Real Madrid in January 2022, failing to score in 10 of them. Madrid have lost only two of their last 17 such matches (W11 D4).
58' NO GOAL! Rodrygo was in an offside position when the ball came off Valverde. The check was quick, with the forward quite a far way offside inside the box. The finish was a composed one, but the goal will not count.
57' GOALLLLLL! RODRYGO SCORES! 2-0! MADRID! Under pressure, Valverde knocks the ball towards Rodrygo in the box who chips the ball over the goalkeeper. However, there will be a check for offside.
55' Valverde and Carvajal combine down the right with the latter having his low cross blocked.
54' Modric puts a high cross in from the right that is claimed by Soria.
52' A loud cheer from the crowd after captain Dakonam slides into Vinicius, winning the ball in the process.
50' CLOSE! This time it is Getafe who has an opportunity to score. Alena's effort from outside of the area is blocked by Carvajal, with the ball rolling to Duarte. He then strikes towards the goal with the ball whistling just past the post.
49' HOW HAS THAT NOT GONE IN? Madrid will be questioning how they have not scored a second. Vinicius has the ball down the left and plays it inside to Rodrygo inside the box. He has a shot blocked with Soria also palming away a strike from Tchouameni. Finally, the ball comes to Modric with his effort also blocked.
47' Madrid have a phenomenal record when leading at the break. They are unbeaten in their last 51 Spanish La Liga matches when leading at half-time (W47, D4) dating back to 17th February 2019 against Girona (L1-2).
46' Getafe gets the game back under way for the second half.
46' A low free-kick from Getafe is latched onto by Unal but he can only direct his effort into the gloves of Lunin who claims well.
Madrid have had a lot of joy down the right, so should keep looking to utilise that in the second half. Carvajal and Valverde have combined well with the former regularly running free of his marker. Additionally, Rodrygo has often decided to move into the right channel, causing an overload on that side. For Getafe, they must counter effectively when given the opportunity. Madrid's dominance has allowed them to commit both Carvajal and Mendy forward, meaning there is space for Getafe to get at when they win possession high up in their half.
Real Madrid go into the break with a slender advantage over Getafe. The visiting side struck early, with Militao getting onto the end of an inswinging Modric corner, directing the ball past Soria. The ball did take a slight deflection off the head of Duarte, but it looked like it was going in anyway. Valverde and Modric also powered efforts over, with Rodrygo getting a header on target before VAR got involved late on in the first half. Vinicius thought he had won his side a penalty after being taken down by Milla inside the box. However, the celebration was short-lived. In the build-up, the Brazilian seemingly kept the ball in play down the left, but it had just rolled out for a throw-in.
45' Getafe have not had a shot on target so far in this game.
44' NO PENALTY! As Vinicius was racing down the left, the ball just rolled out of play before he was able to drive towards the box. After a VAR check, no penalty was given. Milla is fortunate that the ball went out of play, as there was no question about the quality of the tackle inside the box.
43' PENALTY MADRID! Keeping the ball in play down the left, Vinicius drives into the box before being taken down by Milla. VAR will check if the Brazilian did keep it in play, however, with the ball possibly going out for a throw-in.
39' SAVE! Really neat play outside the box from Madrid eventually sees Valverde cross the ball towards Rodrygo. Taking it off Vinicius who looked prepared for the header, Rodrygo angles the ball low into the gloves of Soria.
37' Nice play from Madrid. Carvajal slides the ball through to Rodrygo down the right who looks for Valverde in the middle. Starting the move after originally giving the ball to Carvajal, the midfielder sends the ball over from inside the box.
35' Rodrygo is taken down by Milla in the middle of the pitch. As the referee blows for a free-kick, the midfielder throws his hands up in frustration. Modric then launches the ball into the box, but it is cleared away with ease.
33' Tchouameni crashes the ball against the head of Duarte with a powerful shot. Briefly going down, the Getafe man has now returned to his feet. No treatment was required for the defender.
32' Militao goes direct looking for Carvajal who had moved out of his right-back position, but the defender puts too much power on his pass. Soria claims, with Carvajal running back into defence.
30' Modric powers the ball towards Rodrygo looking for the Brazilian to hold it up, but his touch lets him down and Getafe win possession.
28' Carvajal and Valverde look to combine down the right with a quick one-two, but the latter sends the ball out for a goal kick. Bursting into space, Carvajal looks to the sky in frustration as he had lost his marker.
26' Alaba flicks a short free-kick to Modric who crashes the ball over from a tight angle.
24' Getafe had the momentum in the game for a small period, but Madrid have wrestled back control. Vinicius is then crashed into just outside the box and wins a free-kick in a crossing position.
22' SO CLOSE! Getafe almost get an equaliser. Played in down the left by Alena, Angileri takes a touch before driving the ball across the goal and just past the post. The chance came after Tchouameni lost the ball after a loose pass on halfway.
20' Angileri looks for players in the Madrid box, but his cross is poor and is knocked away with ease by Rudiger who had nobody challenging him. Alena then strikes over with a wild effort from distance.
18' Off the left, Alaba squares the ball into the path of Rodrygo who lost his marker but he smashes the ball over.
15' Carvajal gets caught up the pitch after Madrid lose possession, but the direct ball forward out of the Getafe defence is poor and Militao sweeps in to win possession.
13' Getafe have conceded 76 goals against Real Madrid in LaLiga, keeping a clean sheet in only five of their 35 matches against them in the competition – against no side have they conceded more in the top flight.
11' Vinicius looks for Rodrygo inside the box with a cross from the left but the ball is headed clear by Duarte.
10' Vinicius rolls his man on the halfway line before curling the ball towards Valverde who rushes into the box. On the slide, the Madrid man fails to connect with the cross and the ball bounces out for a goal kick.
9' Carvajal cuts the ball back to Modric on the edge of the box but the Croatian sends the ball over the bar with his left foot.
7' Another chance for Madrid. Vinicius sends a searching ball into the box from the left with Carvajal sending it over the bar.
6' Suarez is making his 200th league appearance for Getafe today. However, he is facing a Madrid side that he has lost against more than any other opponent (13).
L. Modrić
Real Madrid
4' After Modric's first corner is cleared over the bar, his second is met brilliantly by the head of Militao. However, the goal would not have happened if the referee had not changed his first decision. He first pointed for a goal kick after the first corner, before changing his mind.
Éder Militão
Real Madrid
3' GOAALLLLL! MADRID TAKE AN EARLY LEAD! 1-0! Bursting towards the near post, Militao latches onto a corner from Modric and heads the ball past Soria. It's their fastest goal this season and their fourth inside 15 minutes.
2' Early chance for Getafe. Mayoral plays the ball towards Algobia who goes bursting towards the Madrid box. Looking for Unal, his pass is intercepted and Madrid win possession.
1' Modric gets this LaLiga match under way.
Getafe have won only one of their last eight home games in LaLiga (D4 L3) after winning seven of their previous 10 at Coliseum in the competition (D3) – they lost their last match at home, against Real Valladolid, and only once they have lost two in a row at home under Sanchez Flores (December 2004).
As for Madrid, Ancelotti makes three alterations to the team that beat Shakhtar Donetsk. Rudiger moves into the defence, replacing Mendy, with Modric preferred to Kroos in the midfield. With Karim Benzema being rested, Valverde pushes up into the attack with Camavinga coming into the starting 11.
Getafe make three changes to the side that was defeated by Real Valladolid last time out. Mitrovic replaces Alvarez in the defence, with Angileri coming in for Iglesias at left wing-back. Midfielder Mauro Arambarri also drops out of the squad due to injury, with Milla taking his place. Former Madrid striker Mayoral starts in attack alongside Unal.
REAL MADRID SUBS: Lucas Canizares, Lucas Vazquez, Marco Asensio, Mariano, Jesus Vallejo, Alvaro Odriozola, Ferland Mendy, Eden Hazard, Toni Kroos, Luis Lopez, Nacho.
REAL MADRID (4-3-3): Andriy Lunin; Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, David Alaba, Antonio Rudiger; Luka Modric, Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga; Federico Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior.

Beating Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 in the Champions League during the week, Madrid will move to the top of the table with a victory here. Level on points with Barcelona, who face Celta Vigo tomorrow, Carlo Ancelotti’s men surrendered their place at the summit after drawing with Osasuna in their previous match. This came after Madrid won all six of their first LaLiga matches, with the Blaugrana now ahead on goal difference.
Two points above the relegation zone, Getafe will be looking to get back to winning ways after losing to Real Valladolid last time out. Winless in their opening four matches, Quique Sanchez Flores’ side then won back-to-back games against Real Sociedad and Osasuna before their recent defeat. They have collected points in two of their last three games against Madrid.
