    • 90' That's it! What a way to reach the final for Real Madrid with an emphatic 5-0 aggregate (0-2 on the night) win over city and title rivals Atletico.
    • 85' Great save by Casillas! A long ball is knocked down by Koke for Sosa, who comes onto it on the edge of the box. But from the powerful half volley Casillas dives to his right and pushes the ball over the bar. Great shot, great save!
    • 83' Real Madrid have so many options throughout their team it's actually quite scary. They have the best squad in La Liga, no doubt, and in the end that's where Atletico Madrid have been found out tonight. They don't have that depth.

    • 82'
    • 81' YELLOW CARD: Joao Miranda (Atletico Madrid)
    • 80' Simeone has his hands in his pockets and his head slumped. He looks properly deflated and I suppose you can't really blame him. His team has been beaten quite convincingly over the two legs and their lack of depth has been found out.
    • 78' There will be no hat trick for Ronaldo, who has been brought off and wrapped up in cotton wool by Ancelotti. On comes Jese in his place, who has been in great form in the last few weeks. He had as many goals and assists as Ronaldo in 2014 before tonight.

    • 77' Real Madrid sub: Cristiano Ronaldo OFF, Jese Rodriguez ON.
    • 76' What a chance for Atletico Madrid! The corner is swung into the box, finding Suarez unmarked eight yards out from goal. But somehow he manages to put his header by the post. He should have found the net!
    • 75' Koke winds up a shot from just outside the box, but his effort takes a deflection off Varane and flashes just past the post. That could have gone anywhere.
    • 74' Aranzubia makes a good save from Ronaldo at the back post, but when the rebound breaks to Arbeloa the full back takes an age to get the shot away, taking two touches before getting tackled. Just shoot!
    • 73' This will be a third straight defeat for Atletico Madrid in all competitions. Considering they had lost just once before then, that could constitute a collapse, as harsh as it may seem to call it that.
    • 72' The position Isco is playing is very interesting. He has been given freedom to float all over the pitch by Ancelotti tonight. Is that what they call a 'false nine'? He's playing all across the front three, allowing Bale and Ronaldo to interchange.
    • 71' Atletico have shown a degree of resistance in this second half, playing some decent stuff in and around the midfield. However, they're lacking creativity and cutting edge in the final third.
    • 69' So unless Barcelona collapse tomorrow night we will have an El Clasico Copa Del Rey final. The last time we had one of those was in 2011, when Ronaldo scored in extra time to give Los Blancos the win.
    • 68' It's not Alonso who comes off but his midfield partner Modric instead. The Croatian has been very impressive for Real Madrid since the turn of the year and deserves a break in these final 20 minutes or so.
    • 67' Real Madrid sub: Luka Modric OFF, Casemiro ON.
    • 66' Looks like Ancelotti is getting ready to make a change to his Real Madrid sub. Could it be Alonso that's about to come off for the visitors?
    • 65' Bale draws a good save out of Aranzubia, bending a freekick towards the target from about 25 yards. But the Atletico keeper gets down well to beat the ball away from danger.
    • 64' The home fans are still bouncing about and trying to create an atmosphere inside the Vicente Calderon, even though their team is losing 5-0 to their biggest rivals on their own patch. Admirable.
    • 63' It looks like Atletico's 20 game unbeaten run in all competitions is coming to an end tonight. Simeone is now playing a makeshift front two of Adrian and Rodriguez, two players who have featured little this season.
    • 62'
    • 60' Atletico Madrid sub: Raul Garcia OFF, Gabi Fernandez ON.
    • 60' Atletico Madrid sub: Raul Garcia OFF, Gabi Fernandez ON.
    • 59' There seems to have been some kind of crowd trouble at the Vicente Calderon tonight. I'm afraid I can't shed more light on it than that, but the cameramen keep panning to scenes of aggro in the stands.
    • 58' Atletico Madrid are really missing both Costa and Villa. When the ball goes forward they don't really have any presence in holding the ball up or working down the channels. Different game with those two on the pitch.
    • 57' Ronaldo goes down under the strong challenge of Juanfran, who is now playing at right full back position. But there was nothing reckless about it and the Vicente Calderon crowd, as well as Simeone, applaud the tackle.
    • 56' These two teams meet again in three weaks so Simeone is probably looking at this from the perspective of damage limitation. He'll want his team to be competitive when they meet in the league.
    • 55' Real Madrid still look the more likely of the two teams to find the net, with Isco passing up a decent opportunity a few minutes ago. He tried to get past Miranda but the Atletico defender didn't move. Solid.
    • 50' I should probably mention that as he was walking off the pitch at half time Ronaldo was hit by what looked to be a lighter thrown from the crowd. The authorities will take a dim view of that.
    • 48' Just to confirm that the second player who was withdrawn by Atletico Madrid at the break was Diego, with Adrian Lopez coming on for the player on loan at the Vicente Calderon.

    • 47' Alonso whips in a dangerous freekick to the back post where Varane is positioned, but he is adjudged to be on the back of Miranda and the referee awards a freekick to the home side.
    • 46' Three changes have been made at the break, with Nacho Fernandez coming on for Sergio Ramos for Real Madrid and Adrian Lopez and Juanfran coming on for Atletico Madrid. Manquillo has come off after an injury at the end of the first half.
    • 45' We're back under way at the Vicente Calderon! Remember Real Madrid lead 5-0 on aggregate.
    • 45' Sorry for the delays, technical difficulties aplenty at Eurosport Towers but it's half time and Real Have a 2-0 lead on the night for a 5-0 aggregate gulf.
    • 40' Do Atletico Madrid have anything left in the tank? I'd suggest Simeone will be telling his players at the break that for the good of their own mental state they must make a fight of it in the second half.
    • 39' Rodriguez cuts out a cross-field pass by Real Madrid, knocking the ball back to Garcia, who in turn plays in Rodriguez. But he lacks the required composure and lashes the ball wide and over the target.
    • 38' YELLOW CARD: Asier Illarramendi (Real Madrid)
    • 37' Apologies for the sporadic updates. Suffering some technical difficulties at our end. Trying our best to put them right. You'll be pleased to know that you haven't missed all that much. Real Madrid still lead 2-0 on the night.
    • 16' Atletico Madrid have given themselves a mountain to climb in this second leg. Forget the tie, that's gone. Real Madrid will be in the final, but Simeone needs his side to make a fight of this second leg.
    • 15' GOAL! Atletico Madrid 0 Real Madrid 2 (15 mins - Cristiano Ronaldo). The Real Madrid number seven opts for the same corner again, hitting the ball low and hard into the net. That's his 34th goal of the season so far.
    • 14' PENALTY TO REAL MADRID! Bale is triped in the box by Insua. That one was clearcut. It was reckless by the left back!
    • 13' Raul Garcia smashes a shot off the inside of the Real Madrid post! That had Casillas beaten and that could have got the home side back in the game. That was inches away from being his 14th goal of the season.
    • 8' GOAL! Atletico Madrid 0 Real Madrid 1 (8 mins - Cristiano Ronaldo pen). The Real Madrid number seven makes no mistake from the spot, firing his shot into the bottom left-hand corner, past Aranzubia.
    • 7' PENALTY TO REAL MADRID! Ronaldo is tripped inside the box by Manquillo and the away side have a chance to make it 4-0 on aggregate from the spot.
    • 6' In case you're wondering where Costa is tonight, he picked up a yellow card and is suspended for the second leg. Raul Garcia has come in for the Brazilian born striker. Will that work for Atletico?
    • 5' Alonso's freekick from the right side is flicked on by Bale just inside the box but the ball flashes just past the post of Aranzubia, who has come in for Courtois tonight. That wasn't too far away.
    • 4'
    • 3' Isco looks to be playing as a false nine in this system for Real Madrid tonight. He's found it difficult nailing down a position in this team this season. Let's see how he does tonight in that role.
    • 2' Of course Atletico Madrid come into this game on the wrong end of the 3-0 result in the first leg. It was the first time this season that Simeone's side had conceded more two goals in a game. Can they overturn that deficit tonight?
    • 1' We're under way at the Vicente Calderon!
    • 19:55 Pre-match odds: Atletico Madrid 12/5, Draw 12/5, Real Madrid 11/10.
    • 19:50 Gareth Bale starts for Real Madrid, with Jese Rodriguez dropping out of the starting lineup after a very impressive past month or so. Isco comes in for Los Blancos and this is a big opportunity for the Spanish playmaker.
    • 19:45 Well that's a bold selection by Diego Simeone. Of course Diego Costa is suspended for the game having picked up a yellow card in the first leg, but there are starts for Javier Manquillo, Mario Suarez and Jose Sosa, all inexperienced players.
    • 19:40 TEAM NEWS: Atletico Madrid - Aranzubia, Insua, Alderweireld, Miranda, Manquillo, Mario, Koke, Cebolla, Diego, Sosa, Raul Garcia. /// Real Madrid - Casillas, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Arbeloa, Alonso, Modric, Illarramendi, Ronaldo, Isco, Bale.

    From Kenny, on Tue 11 Feb 20:49
  11. Athletico Madrid got themselves to blame though—they­ had a perfect team and then brought in Diego and Insua­ and gave them starting positions, why mess with a good­ thing!

    From ebe, on Tue 11 Feb 20:35
  12. I got to tell you, those penalties are very soft

    From ebe, on Tue 11 Feb 20:30
  13. "real" really should change name to PENALTY­ Madrid - this would describe this club much more­ accurately !

    From Ronaldinho, on Tue 11 Feb 20:28
  14. its over for Atleti, the only thing they could do is­ kicking and injure the Real players so they cannot play­ in la Liga! It makes sense! Hope they doing it!
