    • Atlético Madrid
    • 90+3' FULL TIME! Real Madrid claim first blood in this two-legged tie then, taking a two-goal lead into the second leg. They rode their luck at times, but Los Merengues' quality eventually shone through.
    • 90+2' Real counter breathtakingly at pace - once again - and Ronaldo whips a lovely low ball across the face of goal towards CARVALHO AT THE FAR POST! Touched clear by Merida!
    • 90+1' Real sub: Ozil off, Granero on
    • 90' GOOOAL! MADRID MAKE IT THREE! And that's a hammer blow for Atletico. Ozil tries to play a one-two with Ronaldo, and the return ball takes a touch off two hapless Atletico defenders and right back into the German's path! Ozil slots the ball home confidently to give Real a two-goal lead!
    • 89' Atletico sub: Juanfran off, Valera on
    • 88' Filipe takes a tumble in an advanced position on the left wing, under pressure from Ramos. Free kick Atletico who line up another change
    • 87' Dominguez retrieves possession for Atletico, but Ujfalusi gifts it away again needlessly
    • 86' Kaka tries to latch onto a low ball through the defence, but is shepherded off it by Perea. Solid defending
    • 85' Real haven't been anywhere near as effective since Benzema came off the pitch. Atletico have a free kick wide left in their own half, but it's lofted up the line and straight out for a Real goal kick
    • 84' Real switch the ball to Ronaldo on the right wing with a long diagonal ball - and Dominguez clearly hauls him back. Yellow card for the Atletico man
    • 83' Atletico back on the ball, with Aguero on the right wing. His sloppy pass gifts the ball to Ramos
    • 82' Real eventually get the ball back with a throw deep in their own half on the left wing. Cue some pushing and shoving, and it's all come from a terrible refereeing decision
    • 81' Real and their fans howl with rage as Atletico refuse to give the ball back from the throw! Real kicked the ball out of play for Aguero to get treatment, and Atletico play on - seemingly incensed that the referee didn't give them a free kick. It's close to boiling over at the Bernabeu!
    • 80' Sergio Aguero certainly seems to! Sergio Ramos scythes through the Argentine from behind, and leaves him in a heap. The Real defender did get a bit on the ball, but you can't tackle like that anymore. The referee is mere metres away, and somehow fails to give even a free kick. Ridiculous.
    • 79' Atletico's reserve goalkeeper is warming up feverishly on the sidelines - does De Gea have a problem?
    • 78' Atletico sub: Forlan off, Merida on
    • 77' Alonso curls a lovely ball into the path of Ronaldo, but Ujfalusi does just enough to put the Portuguese striker off his shot and the ball trickles wide of the left post!
    • 75' Swung into the centre, and just about cleared. Real have looked menacing from free kicks tonight
    • 74' CHANCE FOR REAL! Wonderful defending from Atletico, as they get everyone behind the ball as it breaks first to Ronaldo, then to Kaka inside the box. Both shots are blocked, and Real have a corner
    • 73' Real pushing for a third, which would make Atletico's life much harder in the second leg!
    • 72' Ronaldo hacks Ujfalusi down from behind on the halfway line! Horrible challenge, raised studs, and a deserved yellow
    • 71' Ronaldo has a pop from range, but it's well, well wide
    • 70' Real look to be playing without a centre-forward since Benzema came off! There's plenty of movement across the forward ranks, but no target man
    • 69' Reyes jinks through a couple of challenges on his way into Real's half, but is stopped in his tracks by a perfectly-timed slide from Alonso
    • 68' Replays show Xabi Alonso with a cheeky tug on Reyes's shirt as Forlan broke into the area on 65 minutes. Should've been a foul at the very least - but you rarely see those decisions given at the Bernabeu!
    • 67' Atletico string a few passes together inside their own half under incessant pressure from Real
    • 65' Forlan times his run to perfection on the left wing as Reyes knocks a lovely ball through, and has a clear run at Casillas! He opts to square the ball, and Real hack the ball clear! What a let-off for Real!
    • 64' What have Atletico got left in the locker then? They've taken the lead once, and have had a few penalty decisions turned down, but they really can't afford to concede another goal now!
    • 63' The Atletico players aren't happy about the goal, and replays suggest they should - perhaps - have had a free kick in the build-up as Marcelo steamed through the back of Aguero.
    • 62' GOAL! REAL TAKE THE LEAD! Ozil races into the box on the right, cuts back inside, and lifts a teasing ball to the back stick for Ronaldo to knock the ball from a yard out!
    • 61' Unbelievable scenes at the Bernabeu, as Forlan came within a couple of inches of giving Atletico the lead once again! Real look to counter again, with Ozil
    • 60' Reyes lofts the ball over the top of the defence to AGUERO IN THE BOX! HE SHOOTS! SAVED BY CASILLAS! The ball rebounds to FORLAN! WHOSE SHOT HITS THE POST!
    • 59' Forlan is furious as his loose pass goes straight to Ramos, but Real are back on the ball
    • 58' The keeper's back on his feet, and looking slightly sheepish
    • 57' Marcelo breaks into the box from the left, before forcing a low save from De Gea. DE GEA SPILLS TO RONALDO! KNOCKED WIDE! That was almost embarrassing for the otherwise excellent De Gea, who took a crunching knock from Ronaldo in the race for the loose ball
    • 56' Real sub: Benzema off, Kaka on
    • 56' Ronaldo races onto a ball through on the right, before clipping a deflected left-foot effort just over the bar
    • 55' Aguero enters the box from the right wing, and forces a decent save from Casillas at his near post! The ball rebounds agonisingly out of the waiting Forlan's reach, and Real break
    • 54' The corner is cleared, but not before Ramos has gone down under a robust challenge off the ball by Ujfalusi! The ref waves on again, but could easily have given a penalty for that!
    • 53' Ozil holds up the ball wide right, before playing inside to German team mate Khedira. Marcelo then receives the ball wide left, and wins a corner off Juanfran
    • 52' The ball is lost in the Atletico area, but Reyes gifts it back with a sloppy pass into the middle
    • 51' Patient football from Madrid, again, but Atletico looking pretty compact ahead of them
    • 50' Atletico substitution: Raul Garcia off, Suarez on
    • 50' Taken short, but Di Maria doesn't read Alonso's ball back into the box and Atletico have a goal kick
    • 49' Lovely one-touch passing from Real, but Di Maria's attempted through-ball on the edge of the area is deflected out for a corner
    • 48' The challenges are flying in in the middle of the park at the moment, but the referee is continually waving play on. He's doing his best to keep this game flowing!
    • 47' Benzema picks up the ball wide right, but runs into trouble. He had options, the French striker, and should perhaps have used one
    • 46' Marcelo immediately breaks clear on the left wing, but Benzema just can't pick out Ronaldo with a low ball into the box from the byline
    • 46' Welcome back for the second half of Real v Atletico!
    • 45+1' HALF TIME! Real try to counter one last time, and Ramos goes down off the ball in the area! The red waves play on once again, before blowing for half time! What a game of football we're being treated to at the Bernabeu. Join us in a few minutes for the second half.
    • 45' Atletico continue to probe, but Forlan's eventual cross from the left is cut out
    • 44' Cleared again. Forlan picks up the ball on the counter, but cuts back as he enters Real's half
    • 44' Di Maria takes the corner... knocked behind by the first man for another corner
    • 44' Ronaldo picks out Di Maria on the left wing, who swings a lovely cross in the front post, which is headed out for a corner
    • 43' Reyes tries to counter on the left for Atletico, but is well marshalled by Khedira. Atletico throw on the halfway line
    • 42' Di Maria takes on Juanfran on the left, and dinks in a lovely cross! Headed clear
    • 41' Patient build-up from Madrid now, as Marcelo switches from left to right inside Atletico's third
    • 40' Di Maria shows some flashy footwork in the right channel, before lifting a peach of a ball over the defence and towards Khedira in the box! The German midfielder just can't reach it, and De Gea watches it out for a goal kick
    • 39' Reyes thumps into a late challenge on Carvalho, and concedes a free kick
    • 38' Raul Garcia tries to pick out Aguero on the left wing but the ball is overhit, and flies out of play
    • 37' Filipe is still down after that vital clearance at the far post, and Benzema has been penalised for fouling him as he tried to reach the ball
    • 36' Xabi Alonso on the ball for Real, and the Spaniard slips a ball through to Di Maria on the edge of the area. He SHOOTS LOW TO THE RIGHT POST! SPILLED BY DE GEA! And just about hacked clear by Filipe!
    • 36' Slammed straight into the wall, and cleared
    • 36' Ronaldo to take the free kick, a good 35 yards out...
    • 35' Ronaldo finds room to turn just inside the Atletico half, and Assuncao scythes him down from behind. Yellow card
    • 33' Marcelo with the ball in an advanced position on the left for Real. He slips the ball through to Ozil, whose lovely touch lays off Ronaldo who SHOOTS! Blocked
    • 32' He's in sensational form tonight, the 20-year-old keeper, and needed to be in order to reach Ronaldo's fizzing shot, low to his left
    • 31' The corner is cleared, but only as far as a white shirt. The ball ends up back with Ronaldo, who runs the ball into the area from the left, cuts onto his right boot and SHOOTS! FANTASTIC SAVE FROM DE GEA!
    • 30' There's still a game going on here, though! Di Maria lets fly from 25 yards, and De Gea has to tip it over his bar!
    • 29' Drama at the Bernabeu! Replays show that Di Maria's yellow card was spot on - Perea made no contact whatsoever. Aguero, however, clearly had his ankle clipped by Ramos, and will be disappointed not to have a penalty for it!
    • 28' Real counter at pace again, and Di Maria goes down in the box under Perea's challenge! Blatant dive, that, and the Argentine winger rightly goes into the referee's book
    • 28' Juanfran picks up the ball in space on the half-way line! He sends a lovely ball forwards for Aguero to chase, and Aguero goes down in the box under Sergio Ramos's challenge! The referee says no penalty!
    • 27' Di Maria sends a fizzing ball through the Atletico defence to Benzema, who just fails to connect with the ball with the goal at his mercy!
    • 26' Cleared by the first man. Madrid back on the ball in their own half
    • 25' Ronaldo bursts along that right flank again, and Dominguez concedes a corner
    • 24' Di Maria switches to the left wing and Ozil - who dinks a cross into the box. It's headed clear but only as far as Marcelo, who takes a touch before volleying the ball spectacularly over his own head. Well over the bar
    • 23' The corner is taken short to Benzema, who lifts a cross to the back post and CARVALHO! WHAT A SAVE BY DE GEA! Absolutely stunning save, diving to his right to claw Carvalho's bullet-header away from the bottom corner
    • 22' It's end to end stuff this! Real break, and Ronaldo wins a corner up the other end
    • 21' Forlan races onto a through ball, and forces a fine save from Casillas! The linesman's flag is already up, for offside
    • 20' Surely they can't keep this pace up? Atletico on the ball, just inside Real's half
    • 19' Marcelo picks out Benzema inside the box. He cuts onto his left foot and SHOOTS! BLOCKED BY DE GEA! Unorthadox save by the Atletico keeper - but he gets his shins behind the shot to knock it clear
    • 18' Ronaldo counters at pace, and reaches 22 yards out before throwing himself onto the floor in a heap. The ref doesn't buy it, and waves play on
    • 17' Sergio Ramos might've been a bit lucky with that goal - replays show he climbed all over his marker to reach the ball!
    • 16' Benzema brings a long ball down inside the Atletico half, but is penalised for leaning on his marker
    • 15' Brilliant response from Real, and it's all square at the Bernabeu. Di Maria tries to squeeze a ball through the Atletico defence but it's straight out for a goal kick
    • 14' GOOOAL! MADRID EQUALISE! Di Maria swings the corner in to the far stick, and Sergio Ramos thunders a spectacular header past De Gea!
    • 13' Xabi Alonso picks out Benzema on the edge of the area but the Frenchman's shot is blocked for a corner
    • 12' Electric pace at the start of this match! The crowd whistles as Ozil goes down under Ujfalusi's challenge in the Atletico half - but the ref waves play on
    • 11' What a miss, with all the time and space in the world to shoot! Should've scored. Ronaldo with the ball at range now. He advances to 25 yards and SHOOTS! DE GEA SPILLS! HACKED CLEAR BY PEREA!
    • 10' Outstanding approach play from Marcelo and Ronaldo on the left wing. Marcelo plays a one-two with the Portuguese, before laying the ball off to Ronaldo on the edge of the area! RONALDO SHOOTS! WIDE!
    • 9' Di Maria jinks his way towards the box on the right wing, but his eventual cross is cleared
    • 8' What a start to this derby! Aguero fortunate to get away with the offside decision, but Casillas equally lucky to get away with that late challenge on Aguero in the box! Not the start Jose Mourinho was hoping for, and the away-goals rule does apply in the Copa del Rey!
    • 7' GOOOOOAL! ATLETICO TAKE THE LEAD! Aguero gets the benefit of the doubt from the linesman as he runs clear of the defence onto Reyes's through ball. Aguero nicks the ball past Casillas before going down under the keeper's clumsy challenge, and Forlan follows up to knock the ball into an empty net!
    • 7' Atletico clear, and have a chance to counter!
    • 6' Benzema lays the ball off to Ronaldo 20 yards out. The Portuguese checks onto his left foot and SHOOTS! Deflected wide for a corner!
    • 5' Real looking ominous now, with plenty of space in the middle
    • 4' Ronaldo breaks clear on the left wing, throws some stepovers before picking out Ozil in the box! The German manages to get a first-time shot off but it squirms wide of the right post
    • 3' Swarming defence from Atletico, as Filipe is judged to have fouled Di Maria with a shove from behind
    • 2' Atletico enjoy some early possession, knocking the ball around the midfield
    • 1' Here we go then! A full-strength Real Madrid take on a full-strength Atletico. What Atleti will we see tonight? They're capable of stunning football, the visitors, but have a knack of falling apart against their illustrious city rivals
    • 1' WE'RE UNDERWAY AT THE BERNABEU!
    • 21:00 The teams are on the pitch, the atmosphere is absolutely electric, and we'll have a minutes silence before kick-off...
    • 20:55 ATLETICO: De Gea, Ujfalusi, Perea, Luis, Dominguez, Reyes, Juanfran, Garcia, Assuncao, Aguero, Forlan. Subs: Lopez, Godin, Costa, Elias, Merida, Valera, Koke.

    • 20:45 Kaka has made his much-anticipated return to action for Real, but La Liga's second-placed team will have to make do without star striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is expected to be out of action for four months
    • 20:40 In stark contrast - all is not well in the Atletico camp. Los Rojiblancos suffered a spectacular defeat on Monday, succumbing to a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Hercules.
    • 20:35 Real Madrid come into tonight's match at the Bernabeu in scintillating form, after a Ronaldo hat-trick secured Los Merengues a 4-2 Liga victory against Villareal at the weekend
