End of an era

Xavi

For now, though. I leave you with the words of Xavi, who played his last La Liga game for Barcelona at the Nou Camp after a 24-year career at the club.

Afterwards, fighting back tears, he said: "I am the happiest man in the world today and for the 17 seasons I have been [in the first team]. As the coach has said this hasn't finished. We want two more titles and we want to be here with you all again in Barcelona on June 7 [after the Champions League final]."

The way Barca are playing this season, Xavi might just have his way.

Real Madrid 7-3 Getafe

Plenty to ponder for Real Madrid. Will Carlo Ancelotti stay? Will Gareth Bale be heading back to the Premier League? And what of Barcelona. Can they match their 2009 feat of a domestic and European treble? The second leg of that challenge comes in the Copa Del Rey next Saturday against Athletic Bilabo and they face Juventus the following weekend in the Champions League final in Berlin. You will be able to follow both those games right here.

FULL-TIME

Real Madrid 7-3 Getafe

So Real Madrid finish second in la Liga, just two points behind champions Barcelona. It's not a huge gap, but appearances can be deceptive judging by the mood in the Spanish capital. Next season cannot come quick enough.

FULL-TIME

Real Madrid 7-3 Getafe

And that was the last action of the game. All over. Great entertainment.

GOAL

Real Madrid 7-3 Getafe - Marcelo

Seven up, 10-goal thriller. Write your own headlines. Jese Rodriguez steams down the right, squares across the edge of the six-yard box and Marcelo slides in for an easy finish.

GREAT SAVE!

Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

What a parting shot or should that be save from Iker Casillas. Pablo Sarabia fires in from 25 yards and the Real keeper tips over acrobatically.

Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

Galen: Real Madrid wouldn't be Real Madrid if they kept with a coach long term. Capello, Del Bosque. Won trophies but...

Vaishnev: Carlo Ancelloti should not be sacked. Please write a strong article against Perez for his policy as Carlo deserves to be there.

Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

Jese Rodriguez and Javier Hernandez are again carving through the Getafe defence. The latter's shot is well saved, though.

Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

Iker Casillas punches the resulting free-kick clear and receives cheers for his distribution. The home supporters are now crying 'Iker, Iker' as he applauds them in response. It could be the last time he savours the Bernabeu.

YELLOW CARDS

Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

Getafe's Alexis goes into the book for a foul on Jese Rodriguez. The free-kick comes to nothing and Real's Marcelo also receives a yellow card soon after.

Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

Getafe goalscorer Diego Castro is taken off in place of Baba Diawara.

Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

Real's Jese Rodriguez should be on the scoresheet again, but scoops the ball over the Getafe bar with the goal at this mercy.

Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

Do you think Carlo Ancelotti should get the boot? He won the Champions League last season. Strangely, he was also sacked by Chelsea the year after he did the Premier League and FA Cup double. It seems that last year doesn't count for the Italian coach.

GOAL

Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe - Jese Rodriguez

A lovely goal this. Jese Rodriguez plays a beautifully-weighted one-two with James Rodriguez and fizzes his shot into the far corner. That should be game over. Real are well in control now.

Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

Jese is brought down outside the left side of Getafe's penalty area. James Rodriguez steps up, but his curling effort is well saved.

Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

The pace is slowing in this one as the drums rumble from the top of the Bernabeu. Toni Kroos picks out James Rodriguez on the left wing, with the Colombian squaring to Javier Hernandez, but the former Manchester United striker fires straight at Jordi Codina.

Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

Great chance for Getafe's Alexis. Superb run by Pablo Sarabia down the left, he cuts it back to his team-mate six yards from goal but he flicks with his wrong foot wide of the post.

Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

If you don't know much about Martin Odegaard, I can tell you he moved to Real in January from Stromgodset for a fee reported to be about 3m Euro. He made his Norway debut at the age of 15 and the left-footer has drawn comparisons to Barcelona's Lionel Messi for his style of play.

Leslie: Real Madrid vs Getafe is really making this la liga season final an epic one

Now here is a piece of history. Norwegian 16-year-old Martin Odegaard is coming on to become the youngest ever play to make his Real Madrid debut. The teenager is on for Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be La Liga's top scorer again this season.

Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

Real's Cristiano Ronaldo drives down the right side, cuts inside and fires over the top. More goals in this game. For sure.

Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

Almost another for Getafe as Pedro Leon heads a corner towards the Real goal but it is cleared off the line by Asier Illarramendi.

GOAL

Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe - James Rodriguez

This is relentless. Real win a free-kick 25 yards out but on the angle. No problem for Colombian James Rodriguez, who curls into the top corner with venom for his 17th of the season.

Real Madrid 4-3 Getafe

That's a ninth of the season for Javier Hernandez. You wonder what his future holds at the Bernabeu. There might be a fair bit of upheaval this summer.

GOAL

Real Madrid 4-3 Getafe - Javier Hernandez

That didn't take long did it? Marcelo croses into the box from the left, Cristiano Ronaldo somehow heads against the post from about four yards out but Javier Hernandez is on hand to smack in the rebound from an acute angle.

Real Madrid 3-3 Getafe

Fancy some more then? The players are out and Getafe get us under way for the second half.

If Real Madrid wanted to stop Spanish football fans talking about Xavi's departure from Barcelona, they are going the right way about it! Where do you think this game will end up?

bring back our girls: Real are amazing, aren't they? Barca thump them regularly because they can keep them out. Real shame.

Viv: This is why Real has not won anything this season. Very complacent play from goalkeeper/defenders/midfielders.

HALF-TIME

Real Madrid 3-3 Getafe

So to sum up. Cristiano Ronaldo scores a 21-minute hat-trick, a record equalling eighth of the season. He now has 61 goals all in. Meanwhile, Getafe have scored three goals in a La Liga game for the first time this season.

You're going to miss this when it's gone this summer aren't you?

HALF-TIME

Real Madrid 3-3 Getafe

How was that for a half in a game that appeared meaningless? Breathless at times.

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 3-3 Getafe

Jese into the book for a trip on Diego Castro. Another fee-kick for Getafe is an enticing position. But it's just over.

Real Madrid 3-3 Getafe

Almost another for Getafe, who have been practising their shooting this week, clearly. This time it's Pedro Leon who is a whisker wide from 20 yards as Iker Casillas breathes a huge sigh of relief. This game can't end soon enough for him.

Toniwater: back to AC for Carlo where he'll do his best to get AC close to Juve, he may take the national job. Top manager. Silly by Perez

Viv: Carlos doesn't have a good record in terms of league titles. However, I am not convinced Rafael will be better.

GOAL

Real Madrid 3-3 Getafe - Mehdi Lacan

Getafe aren't done here yet. Nightmare first half for Iker Casillas but he cannot do much at all. Real fail to clear a corner and Medhi Lacen fires in from close range. Incredible.

Real Madrid 3-2 Getafe

It's all too much for Real defender Pepe, who is taken off injured. Raphael Varane is on in his place. Looks like a hamstring problem.

Real Madrid 3-2 Getafe

Just catching breath here as Cristiano Ronaldo receives the ball deep in the Getafe area but goakkeeper Jordi Codina dives across to save.

GOAL

Real Madrid 3-2 Getafe - Cristiano Ronaldo

No Mistake from Cristinao Ronaldo. He finds the bottom corner for his 61st of the season. That's his eighth hat-trick this term too.

PENALTY TO REAL MADRID

Cristiano Ronaldo plays his part in this by teeing up the onrushing Javier Hernandez, who is chopped down by the Getafe defence quicker than a lumberjack on heat.

GOAL

Real Madrid 2-2 Getafe - Cristiano Ronaldo

What a way to bring up your 60th goal of the season. Real win a free-kick close to 30 yards out, Cristiano Ronaldo steps up and fires into the bottom left corner.
