    • 90+3 All over in Madrid and Liverpool have done it. It wasn't pretty, it wasn't all that exciting, but Liverpool have beaten Real in their own back yard and are now firm favourites to go through to the quarter-finals.
    • 90+1 Leiva Lucas makes a late appearance as Liverpool run down the clock. Kuyt is the man replaced.
    • 87 Riera leaves the field hobbling, to be replaced by none other than captain fantastic. Enter Gerrard!
    • 86' Gago goes in the book for a nasty, crude lunge on Albert Reira, who looks hurt.
    • 82' GOOOOOOOAAAALLLL!!!! Liverpool lead!!! Aurelio whips over a free-kick from the right and BENAYOUN IS UNMARKED TO HEAD PAST CASILLAS!!!
    • 78' Madrid are still probing, but the Liverpool defence has been watertight tonight.
    • 71' WHAT A HIT FROM ROBBEN!!! The Dutchman cut inside and unleashes a firecracker of a drive from 25 yards...which dips and fizzes and brings a fine save from Reina.
    • 65' Javier Mascherano chops down Fernando Gago and deservedly goes in the book.
    • 63' Sensational run from Higuain, who beats two defenders to get to the byline...but his cross finds the side-netting. Once again, no end product for Madrid.
    • 61' Liverpool make a change, but not the one their fans will have wanted. Gerrard is sat back down on the bench and joined by Torres, who must surely be coming off through injury. Ryan Babel takes his place.
    • 60' Liverpool have been the better side in the second half. Madrid just cannot find a way through this sea of red.
    • 57' Robben swings a dangerous cross in from the right, but yet again Kuyt is the man back to clear his lines.
    • 55' Torres goes in the book for a foul on Lassana Diarra.
    • 52' Gerrard is readying himself for action on the sidelines. The arrival of the Liverpool captain is imminent.
    • 47' Cannavaro is the first man in the book, after pulling Kuyt's shirt and cynically halting his progress...free-kick to Liverpool, but Alonso drifts it over everybody in the box and behind for a goal-kick.
    • 46' Away we go with the second half and Juande Ramos has made a change for Madrid. Guti is the man on, replacing Marcelo in midfield.
    • 45' The half-time whistle sounds and the teams go into the break goalless. Madrid have arguably had more possession, but Liverpool have enjoyed the better chances.
    • 45' ALONSO TRIES ONE FROM INSIDE HIS OWN HALF...CASILLAS IS FORCED TO PUSH IT OVER. WHAT A STRIKE!!!
    • 43' Corner for Madrid on their right. Robben goes short, gets it back and whips in a dangerous ball that deflects off a Liverpool defender and into the grateful arms of Reina.
    • 39' FINALLY some end product from Robben, who cuts inside and lets fly with fizzing drive that is always going away from the target.
    • 37' Marcelo leaves Arbeloa standing and shoots from fully 30 yards...but his skidding effort is well wide of Reina's right post.
    • 35' It's all gone a bit quiet in the Bernabeu. Liverpool have stifled Madrid somewhat and aside from Raul's early shot the home side have not threatened.
    • 30' HIGUAIN HEADS HOME FOR MADRID!! But he's clearly offside and the referee rightly disallows the goal.
    • 28' Torres looks to be carrying a slight knock on his ankle. Let's hope for Liverpool's sake he can shake it off.
    • 26' Robben goes at Fabio Aurelio for the umpteenth time, but yet again he fails to make space for a final ball.
    • 23' Suddenly Liverpool are opening Madrid up...this time Benayoun races on to a through ball, but Casillas once again is alert to the danger and gets there first.
    • 21' TORRES IS THROUGH...HE DRIVES IN FROM THE RIGHT AND SHOOTS...but Iker Casillas makes the save and Madrid survive. Pepe did a good job of putting the striker under pressure there.
    • 19' First chance for Torres to attack the Madrid defence, but Fabio Cannavaro robs him with consumate ease.
    • 15' It's all Madrid. The home side win their second corner of the match and Robben whips it over...but Kuyt leaps highest to head clear.
    • 13' GOAL FLASH: Chelsea are ahead at the Bridge against Juventus. Didier Drogba with the goal.
    • 10' Slow start from Liverpool, who have barely put two passes together thus far. They're being swamped in midfield and look a touch lightweight. Torres and Dirk Kuyt have had precious little to feed on.
    • 8' Gabriel Heinze gets to the byline and tries to win a free-kick by throwing himself over Yossi Benayoun...but the referee is wise to his theatrics.
    • 5' Lovely stuff from Robben, who slips in Raul with a lovely pass. Madrid's leading marksman shoots early, but Pepe Reina deals with his effort comfortably.
    • 3' Madrid start brightly, with Arjen Robben wasting no time in getting his left foot on the ball. The home side will attack the flanks and Liverpool need to be wary.
    • 1' Away we go in Madrid, to a huge roar of anticipation from the packed stands. The Bernabeu is heaving.
    • - TEAM NEWS: Here's the Madrid starting line-up: Casillas, Ramos, Cannavaro, Pepe, Heinze, Robben, Diarra, Gago, Marcelo, Raul, Higuain. Van der Vaart and Guti both start on the bench.
    • - TEAM NEWS: STEVEN GERRARD DOES NOT START FOR LIVERPOOL. The England midfield is on the bench. Liverpool's starting line-up: Reina, Arbeloa, Carragher, Skrtel, Aurelio, Benayoun, Alonso, Mascherano, Riera, Kuyt, Torres.
