Real Madrid needed a different game. One with 90 minutes of pleasure, one that would help them feel positive again after the farce in the cup in midweek and the whipping received at the hands of Barcelona. Getafe rolled up at the Santiago Bernabéu, the ideal rival for playing well and scoring lots of goals against. The exam passed off satisfactorily even though the crowd's reprimands and the chants of Florentino, resign! started early on. The anger coming from part of the crowd had no effect on the players and, with but four minutes gone, Benzema had already got past Guaita.

It was not just an illusion. The goal had a placebo effect and Madrid managed a first forty-five of good football. With James Rodríguez and Luka Modric on the field, they put together some pretty and precise two-touch moves to find a way past Getafe's pressure. They moved the ball around with good judgement up front and allowed the BBC to get back among the goals. Benzema bagged a brace to draw the attention away from the legal problems he is having in France, and then Bale and Cristiano joined the party to leave the game done and dusted with a four-goal lead built up before half time.

The second half was little more than killing time. Getafe came forward timidly while Real Madrid went into 'training mode', a change of roles that the fans were not happy about. The Bernabéu does not accept its team having a siesta, even though on this occasion they had permission because of the scoreline and the good display they had given in the first half. It was in this period that Alexis scored Getafe's consolation goal from a corner.
