FT: Elche 1-2 Real Madrid
GOAL REAL MADRID! Ronaldo converts from the spot after Carlos Sanchez was penalized for hauling down Pepe on a Madrid corner. We're into the seventh minute of time added now. Surely that's the end.
90+3' PENALTY MADRID!
Boakye scored the goal, heading Fidel's cross past Diego Lopez at the near post, sending the crowd into raptures.
Elche score in injury time to equalize vs Real Madrid. Welp, that's La Liga done and dusted then. (kinda serious)— Thomas Dobby (@ThomasDobby) September 25, 2013
90+2' GOAL ELCHE! All square with only seconds remaining!
89' Morata has replaced Di Maria for Real Madrid.
86' Elche have commited 19 fouls to Madrid's 8. It's been chippy out there. But based on this - and assuming they can get a few goals this season - I see no reason why Elche can't stay up.
84' We also had Carvajal replacing Modric some moments ago.
83' Niguez! Shortly after coming on the Elche substitute blasts one just over the Madrid crossbar!
81' Niguez replaces Coro for Elche.

77' Ramos! The Madrid defender quite nearly heads Ronaldo's header into goal!
76' Ronaldo tries a series of step-overs and is hacked to the ground. That's pretty much the match in a nutshell. On the resulting free-kick he was then booked for not placing the ball at the correct spot!
74' Coro earns Elche's fourth corner and tries to get the fans animated as he goes to take it himself. Madrid deal with it easily.
Elche spread the ball around reasonably well. They also get their full-backs involved in the buildup play. If anything it's their final ball that's lacking.
70' Illarramendi has replaced Isco for Real Madrid.
Elche are currently fielding Richmond Boakye, Juve's talent youngster who played w/Sassuolo last season.— Matteo Bonetti (@TheCalcioGuy) September 25, 2013
67' Really impressive tackle on Coro by Luka Modric, who had tracked back to lend a hand in defense.
The Ronaldo goal:
63' Boakye replaces Marquez for Elche.
62' Just over an hour gone. Madrid lead Elche 1-0 through a Ronaldo free-kick, but overall it's been a rather chippy affair with lots of stops and starts. Madrid have kept 70% of the ball so far.
58' Talking-point! Suarez swerves into the Madrid box and goes down when Khedira stuck out his leg. Obvious penalty shout, but Suarez goes into the book for diving! Probably the right call, but what on earth is Khedira doing sticking out his leg like that?!
Watching replay from behind goal, FK goes right through middle of wall. Also bounces just in front of goalie.— Sid Lowe (@sidlowe) September 25, 2013
