Cristiano Ronaldo's brace boosts Real

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice and set up another goal for Real Madrid in a 4-1 comeback win over Getafe on Sunday in La Liga, as new team-mate Gareth Bale couldn't make his home debut after injuring his leg before the match.

Bale was dropped from Madrid's starting line-up minutes before the match after the club's medical staff examined his left thigh during warm-up at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Things only got worse for Madrid's disappointed fans when Getafe forward Angel Lafita opened the scoring in the fifth minute.

But Pepe scored from a rebound in the 19th minute before Ronaldo converted a penalty in the 33rd, set up Isco in the 59th, and added another goal on a spinning backheel in stoppage time after Getafe had been reduced to 10 men.

• Rigg: Benzema form a cause for concern at Madrid

Ronaldo's 207th and 208th career goals for Madrid in just 205 games moved him ahead of Hugo Sanchez as the club's fifth all-time leading scorer. Raul holds the record with 323 goals.

If losing Bale for what was supposed to be his highly anticipated first game in front of Madrid's fans wasn't a big enough blow, Carlo Ancelotti's side soon fell behind to their modest crosstown rivals.

After Ronaldo had squandered back-to-back scoring chances, the Portugal forward lost the ball and Getafe struck when Lafita's resulting shot took a deflection off Pepe before landing in the net.

But Ronaldo helped Madrid level when he drew a save from goalkeeper Miguel Moya, with the rebound falling for Pepe to tap in.

Ronaldo put Madrid in front by driving a low spot-kick just inside the post after Getafe's Michel blocked his free-kick with his arm inside the area. Ronaldo's quickly taken free-kick then left Isco alone in the area to curl in his fourth goal in La Liga.

Ronaldo almost scored again in the 79th when he clipped the post.

Getafe played the final five minutes with 10 men after Michel was sent off with a straight red card for fouling Jese Rodriguez with only Moya to beat.

Ronaldo then got his well-earned brace when he used a brazen back-heeled shot with his right boot to redirect Sami Khedira's cross into the net.

Valencia enjoyed a much-needed 3-1 victory at home over Sevilla, breaking a four-game losing streak that included a 3-0 defeat to Swansea in the Europa League on Thursday.

Brazilian forward Jonas scored twice for Valencia, netting in the 32nd and then again in the 73rd after Kevin Gameiro had leveled for Sevilla in the 52nd. Substitute Victor Ruiz headed in Valencia's last goal in the 82nd.

The result left Unai Emery's Sevilla winless and in last place.

Villarreal remained undefeated through five games on their return to Spain's top flight after drawing 0-0 at Celta Vigo.

Villarreal conceded no chances to Celta and their speedy forwards led by Jonathan Pereira threatened throughout. Celta goalkeeper Yoel Rodriguez stretched his leg to block the best effort from Javier Aquino in the 83rd minute.

The same lack of finishing touch condemned Real Betis to a 0-0 finish against visiting Granada, leaving both teams with one win this season.

It was Betis' second scoreless result in four days after it drew with Lyon in the Europa League on Thursday.
