Getafe Vs Real Madrid: Cristianos Second Restores Madrids Two Goal Advantage

Real Madrid have restored their two goal advantage after a shocking mistake at the back by Getafe. Not for the first time, Getafe diced with death in defence and this time it has proved costly. A dreadful clearance from keeper Jordi Codina fell straight to Mesut Ozil who fed the ball first time to Karim Benzema. The French striker brought the ball forward before playing a slide-rule pass to Cristiano Ronaldo who made no mistake from inside the area, side-footing past the keeper on the fall.

The error has been incredibly harsh on Getafe, who had started the half the brighter of the two teams, but you simply cannot afford to commit schoolboy errors against players of the calibre of Ozil and Ronaldo. The home side really need a quick goal to haul themselves back in it, although with Miku and Manu Del Moral anonymous upfront, they may well need another moment of magic from Dani Parejo. Kaka remains on the bench, although I expect the Brazilian to make a late entrance if the scores remain as they are.
