Real thrash Getafe 

Real Madrid beat neighbours Getafe to move joint top of the La Liga table.

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 the Wales forward has not scored for his club since September 1.

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