Real Madrid came from behind to beat Getafe 4-1 and move within two points of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid again.

Angel Lafita, courtesy of a deflection, gave the visitors and early lead, but goals from Pepe and Ronaldo meant Los Blancos led at the break.

Isco, who came into the starting lineup after Gareth Bale got injured in the warm up, then made it 3-1, before Michel saw red for a last man challenge on Jese Rodriguez near the end.

There was still time for a fourth though; Ronaldo bagging his 208th goal for Madrid with a cheekily beautiful finish in stoppage time.
