    • - Thanks for joining us this evening!
    • 90'+4 FULL TIME. Atletico win the first leg at the Vicente Calderon 2-1 against Hannover!
    • 90'+4 We're into a fourth minute now...
    • 90'+3 SAVE FROM ZIELER! EFFORT FROM DIEGO! Amazing overhead kick from Diego, denied by an equally impressive save from Zieler!!
    • 90'+2 Corner for Hannover... Courtois comes and punches, not a great one, but enough to get the ball away.
    • 90'+1 Three minutes of added time to be played...
    • 90' Turan and Schlaudraff both receive bookings.
    • 89' A long ball forward is knocked back from the edge of the area and falls to Salvio, who gets it under control, holds off a challenge and curls a beauty into the top-right corner from outside the area! Atletico 2-1 Hannover!
    • 89' GOAL ATLETICO! What a finish from Salvio! Atletico back in front!
    • 88' Turan fouled by Pinto and Atleti have a free-kick on the right... Delivery cleared for a throw. Better defending from Hannover!
    • 87' Filipe Luis gets in down the left but is shepherded wide by Schlaudraff.
    • 86' Falcao goes to ground too easily inside the area and is told to get back on his feet by the referee.
    • 84' Atletico piling the pressure on Hannover, and they win a corner...
    • 83' Pogatetz holds off a run from Falcao as Atletico get into the Hannover area.
    • 82' Diouf ends an epic shift as he comes off for Abdellaoue.
    • 79' Falcao goes for an overhead kick on the edge of the six-yard area, and appeals for a penalty as his effort comes off Eggimann's hand. It was all too fast!
    • 78' Diego goes in late on Cherundolo and gets a yellow card.
    • 77' Schlaudraff sends an effort well over.
    • 75' Diego almost finds Turan with a beautifully threaded through ball. Zieler gets there first though...
    • 74' Hannover pushing now and they sense this leg could go either way...
    • 73' Yellow for Godin for a nasty tackle on Diouf from behind, as he rakes the Hannover mans ankle with his studs...
    • 72' Atletico coming forward in waves now as they look for a second...
    • 71' Pogatetz cuts out Salvio's cross from the right...
    • 70' Changes for both sides as Salvio replaces Lopez for Atletico and Schulz comes on for Pander for Hannover.
    • 68' Great cross from Stindl on the right and his whipped delivery flies across the face of goal!
    • 66' Diego starting to pull some strings and he's getting involved with everything Atletico are putting together at the moment.
    • 64' Diego's made a difference since coming on, and he finds Turan inside with a neat little pass.
    • 63' AMAZING SAVE FROM COURTOIS!!! What a stop, as Diouf fires in at the near post and the young keeper makes a superb point-blank save!
    • 62' BALL ACROSS THE FACE OF GOAL! Gabi slides in at the back post and puts the ball across the face of goal - Falcao just can't get there!
    • 62' Diego comes on for Koke.
    • 61' Filipe Luis' cross is cut out by the hannover defence.
    • 60' Atletico pushing forward all the time now, and looking likely to get back in front if they can find that final ball...
    • 58' Gabi booked for a needless trip on Stindl, and he'll miss the next game.
    • 57' Diouf is back on the pitch...
    • 56' Something stirs in the centre circle, some light pushing and shoving, but not much doing. It's over Schmiedebach's slowness at coming off to be replaced by Konan Ya.
    • 54' Zieler comes out to punch a free-kick clear and clatters his team-mate Diouf, who is out of it for a minute or two. Fortunately the striker gets back on his feet, but he looks groggy.
    • 53' Atletico probing the Hannover defence, looking for a way through...
    • 51' Adrian gets up for a free header inside the six-yard area as Atletico have a corner. His header is off target. Hannover have been poor at picking up their men this evening!
    • 49' Pander curls a free-kick into Atletico's area and Courtois plucks the ball from the air easily enough.
    • 48' Atletico have started this half as they did the first... On the offence.
    • 47' Falcao gets a glimpse of goal and fires off a shot from 20 yards, which flies wide by a couple of feet.
    • 46' KICK OFF! We're back underway at the Vicente Calderon...
    • - Good first half then, and 1-1 at the break. Perfectly poised for another engrossing 45 minutes. Stay with us, it'll start shortly!
    • 45'+1 Super play from Juanfran who cuts inside off the right with a delightful touch from a long cross-field ball, but he fires into Zieler's arms... HALF TIME.
    • 45' Atletico ending the half on the attack...
    • 43' Pinto is booked for dissent.
    • 41' Gabi curls the delivery in and it's headed down inside the area, but no-one pounces on the loose ball for Atletico and Hannover clear.
    • 40' Pogatetz gives away a free-kick on the edge of Hannover's area...
    • 39' Fantastic stuff! Hannover's first effort on goal, and against the run of play they score! Superb inch-perfect cross from the right from Stindl and Diouf is in the right place at the right time to slide in and equalise! Atletico 1-1 Hannover.
    • 38' GOAL FOR HANNOVER! Diouf takes the first chance he gets!
    • 37' Filipe Luis makes another good run down the left and gets a cross in, but there's not enough support this time...
    • 34' Atletico get caught offside a couple of times in quick succession as they continue to put pressure on Hannover's defence.
    • 32' Atletico remain the most threatening of the two sides. The service to Diouf and Rausch has been poor from Hannover so far...
    • 30' Atletico continuing to press and Koke shows off some superb footwork twice in the space of a minute.
    • 28' Ouch! Diouf and Suarez go into a challenge together and the Hannover man takes a set of studs in the groin. Understandably he stays down for a minute or two. He's back up.
    • 26' CHANCE FOR ATLETICO! Turan gets down the left and clips a cross to the far post from the by-line. Falcao rises and looks certain to head a second, but his effort is just over!
    • 24' Lopez drags a shot across the face of goal and wide as Atletico get forward once more.
    • 23' Miranda with a very clumsy challenge on Rausch in the Atletico area, and that could well have been a penalty... Escape there for the home side.
    • 22' Free-kick in from Gabi is met by Falcao, who gets a header in but it sails just over the bar and onto the roof of the net.
    • 20' Hannover starting to get forward and test out the Atletico defence, but the home side are quick on the counter. Open game...
    • 18' Pander goes for goal from the set piece but it's straight into the wall, and Courtois eventually gathers the ball.
    • 17' Stindl is body-checked by Godin and Hannover have a free-kick in a dangerous spot on the right...
    • 15' Juanfran picks up a yellow for a foul on Diouf. Poor challenge, and he'll miss the second leg.
    • 14' Diouf chases a ball over the top but the service isn't good enough for the Hannover forward.
    • 13' Juanfran's cross from the right is cut out. Hannover feeling the pressure here.
    • 12' That was Falcao's 7th Europa League goal of the season. Atletico continue on the attack after taking the lead...
    • 10' Free-kick in from Gabi and Falcao runs unmarked and nods the ball past Zieler. All too easy... Atletico 1-0 Hannover!
    • 9' GOAL FOR ATLETICO! Who else?! Falcao!!
    • 7' Adrian's dink over the top is spot on for Turan, but he takes an age to try and pick out Falcao and the chance is snuffed out by Hannover...
    • 6' Rausch gets forward down the left as Hannover test out the home defence for the first time, but they're up to the job.
    • 4' It almost opens up got Gabi as he tries to thread a ball through for Falcao, but it's just cut out.
    • 2' Attacking start from Atletico and within the opening two minutes a slip from Eggimann almost lets Falcao in for an early sniff of goal, and that man needs no encouragement...
    • 1' KICK OFF! We're on.
    • 20:05 Here we go...
    • 20:01 The players are out on the pitch and we're just a few minutes away from kick off...
    • 19:58 Atletico Madrid keeper Thibaut Courtois has kept nine clean sheets in his last 17 appearances. Nice work!
    • 19:55 Ten minutes to kick off and the atmosphere at the Vicente Calderon is bubbling away.
    • 19:50 Atletico's goal record in their last seven games (all victories) in the Europa League is 18 for, just three against.
    • 19:45 Hannover have only lost away from home once in the Europa League this season. Atletico are a goal off making it 400 in UEFA competitions.
    • 19:40 Atletico Madrid have won their last seven games in the Europa League this season, and they saw Besiktas off 6-1 on aggregate in the last round. Hannover put in a resounding 4-0 second-leg rout of Standard Liege in their previous tie to get here.
    • 19:35 So the big news coming out of the line-ups is that Atletico boss Diego Simeone has left Brazilian playmaker Diego on the bench - the Brazilian playmaker has been struggling with an injury.
    • 19:30 Kick off is at 20:05 UK time in this one, so just over half an hour to go. The winner of this quarter-final will meet the winner of the AZ Alkmaar v Valencia tie.
