Real Madrid moved two points clear of Barcelona in La Liga with a 4-2 home win against Getafe.

Karim Benzema gave Jose Mourinho's side the lead after 15 minutes when he converted Mesut Ozil's cutback.

The scores were level at the break, however, as Miku beat the offside trap to slot past Iker Casillas.

The home side regained the initiative on the hour through Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty, after he was fouled by Cata Diaz.

Benzema added his second on 69 minutes when he swept home Ronaldo's pass.

Miku gave the away side a lifeline on 73 minutes when he scored the rebound after Dani Guiza's shot had been saved, but substitute Gonzalo Higuain killed off the visitor's spirited display when he was set up by Kaka.

Madrid next travel to Levante on Sunday, while Getafe host Rayo Vallecano.
