Commentary

Minute   Description
90' Illarramendi enters the game and replaces L. Modrić.
Three minutes of stoppage time remaining. There's time for one more big chance here, but will it fall to Malaga?
89' Ancelotti is attempting to stifle the ascendancy and tempo of Malaga by making a slightly defensive change of his own. Modric makes his way slowly off the pitch to be replaced by Asier Illarramendi, who'll slot in deep next to Xabi Alonso.
87' Schuster is going for this now! Striker, Mounir El Hamdaoui, comes on to replace defender, Angeleri. Fair play to the former Real Madrid manager, who's going all-out to get something from this! Time running out, though!
86' M. El Hamdaoui enters the game and replaces M. Angeleri.
85' The latest entry of the Ronaldo versus Caballero saga sees the Ballon d'OR winner glide past the challenge of Sergio Sanchez in the middle of the park before once again cutting inside and powering a low shot at goal. It's another minor victory for the Malaga keeper though, as he gets down to make the comfortable block.
83' Ohhh so nearly for Santa Cruz! Duda whips in a free kick from the right-hand side and the Paraguayan looks poised to head at goal, but the ball is just taken off his head by Pepe, who node behind! Another corner to Malaga! The crowd are really getting behind their players now!
81' Malaga are on the ascendancy here! The La Rosaleda crowd are sensing that Madrid are looking a little uneasy at the back now and are getting behind their team with some support. Just under 10 minutes to go, can they grab a point?!
79' Ronaldo looks to be stepping up his efforts to double his tally here. His next attempt sees a swift jink past Camacho before a drilled strike at goal from 25 yards, but it's too central to give Caballero much of a problem. The Malaga keeper makes the save.
77' It's not often at all you say this but this has been a very quiet game for Xabi Alonso and Modric in midfield. They're usually dictating the play from ease in central areas, but they just haven't saw as much of the ball as usual tonight.
75' Sergio Sancheeeeezzz!!! Just over! Some head-tennis inside the Real Madrid box from both sides eventually see the ball fall perfectly for the defender, who meets it to lash left-footed volley at goal, but he just sliced his attempt too much and it goes whizzing past the left-hand post! The chance just fell to the wrong man for Malaga!
