Real Madrid beat Getafe to level league point with rival Barcelona after 3-0 win over their neighbours . 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 1 September.

Seventh-placed Getafe had plenty of chances – 15 shots to Real’s nine – but rarely properly threatened goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. Barcelona went back to the top later on Saturday when they drew 2-2 with Espanyol.
