Real Madrid kept up the pressure on Barcelona with a 0-1 victory at neighbours Getafe on Saturday, an eighteenth win out twenty one equalling a club record which dates back over 50 years. Luis García's side had already beaten Barcelona in the Alfonso Pérez stadium, and Abdel could have scored when he fire a shot over the bar in the first minute. A quarter of an hour later though Sergio Ramos got on the end of Özil's corner to head past Moyà, and Madrid were in front. Kaká and Benzema went close, and Moyà had to be on his toes to save a Ronaldo free kick, but the locals replied with a header from Miku which Valera just couldn't turn in to the net. After the restart Benzema brought another good save out of Moyà, but Pepe was very fortunate to be let off a penalty appeal when he blocked Diego Costas's shot with his arm. Otherwise though Getafe hardly troubled Casillas in the whole of the second half, and Higuaín could have added to the scoreline had Moyà not pulled off another great stop near the end. Six league wins in a row now for Mourinho's team, and with Barcelona playing later in the evening, the gap at the top has opened up to ten points.
