Getafe 0 -3 Real Madrid

Real Madrid beat neighbours Getafe to briefly move back to the top of La Liga.

Goalkeeper David Soria deflected the ball into his own net as he tried to punch away under pressure from Raphael Varane.

Varane then headed home from Toni Kroos’ free-kick – a decision which stood after a long video assistant replay delay to check for offside.

Luka Modric added a third in injury time from Federico Valverde’s pass.

Gareth Bale forced Soria into two saves and had a hand in Modric’s late goal, but Wales forward has not scored for his club since 1 September.

Seventh-placed Getafe had plenty of chances – 15 shots to Real’s nine – but rarely properly threatened goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois.

Barcelona went back to the top later on Saturday when they drew 2-2 with Espanyol.
