    • Real Madrid
    • And there is the final whistle! Roma have beaten Real Madrid despite being under pressure for much of the game!
    • 90+5 Roma's stubborn defence is holding very strong here. Madrid can't find a way through as Roma see out the game.
    • 90+4 Sobrinho does well to spin away from Cole and get a cross away but Benatia clears yet again.
    • 90+3 Class play as Castan find Borriello over the top. He lays it to Somma on the overlap whose cross just can't find Borriello in the middle.
    • 90+2 Finally back underway here. Madrid have around five minutes to get a goal back here.
    • 90+1 More police on the pitch than players at the moment. Roma heading back on to hopefully finish this match!
    • 90' One kid waving to the crowd as he is escorted off by police... So stupid.
    • 89' Worryingly most of these pitch invaders look like teenagers and kids. Players trying to remain composed but they look more frustrated than anything.
    • 88' There are loads of them doing it now. Too many fans running on the pitch. Sad end to what was a good game. No malice in it but wasting a lot of time.
    • 87' A young fan has run on the pitch and taken a selfie with Benatia... Can't wait to see that on Twitter later.
    • 86' Keita comes off with an ankle complaint for Paredes.
    • 85' Medran advances with the ball and attempts a pot shot from distance but he skews it wide of the right post.
    • 84' Keita plays a lovely one-two with Borriello but his right footed shot as he broke into the box was weak and Lopez was able to save.
    • 81' Benatia again defends a ball heading over his head by laying it nicely to Salih ucan in midfield.
    • 80' Huge cheer for Ronaldo as his picture comes up on the big screen. Shows how exciting this game is at the moment.
    • 79' Benatia heads clear a dangerous cross from Arbeloa. Real finding no way past the imperious Moroccan so far.
    • 78' Salih Ucan also comes on for Iturbe.
    • 77' Thankfully Carvajal is back on his feet. Lull in play here as Florenzi makes way for Somma. Sanabria comes on for Naingollan.
    • 76' Worrying for Real as Carvajal is down receiving treatment. Looks like he is complaining about his left knee.
    • 75' Good possession from Roma sees Florenzi find Iturbe on the right but his return ball is just overhit and allows Carvajal back to clear up. The Argentine then gives away a free kick on Carvajal.

    • 73' More changes as Bale comes off Sobrinho. Modric comes off for Mascarell.

    • 70' Medran lays it to Carvajal who swings a good ball into the far post. Cole leaves it to go out of play but Arbeloa manages to get a foot on it. Luckily it had already gone out of play.
    • 69' Madrid break quickly and release Bale on the right but he hits a tame shot at Skorupski who saves with ease.
    • 68' Florenzi escapes down the right and lays it to Keita before Totti finds space on the left. He goes on a little dribble but his shot goes straight into Ramos.
    • 67' Modric dances into the box and then lays it back to Bale who can't find any space to get a shot away on the edge of the area.
    • 66' Roma look more settled in this second half as Real Madrid begin to start chasing shadows.
    • 65' Alonso comes off for Medran. De Rossi comes on for Pjanic.
    • 64' Modric and Carvajal combine on the left before Alonso switches to Arbeloa. Modric then comes to find space but his left footed shot is wayward.
    • 63' The free kick comes to nothing and then Modric, trying to find space for a shot on the edge of the area, floors Castan.
    • 62' Castan gives it away to Bale deep in his own half and then floors the Welsh winger when he realises the danger.

    • 51' Pjanic with a free kick central about 40 yards out. He does a good Bale impression and smashes it over.
    • 50' Cole not happy with Raul de Tomas who he says stamped on him. He didn't, think the Englishman is being a bit touchy there.
    • 49' Alonso plays a lovely dinked ball into Isco in the box but Naingollan tracked the run and is able to clear.
    • 48' Roma happy in possession at the back but Skorupski is forced to go long. Totti can't bring it under control.

    • 46' Back underway here! Which way will it go? Hasn't looked much like a friendly so far! Madrid make changes with Arbeloa and Nacho coming on.
    • And that is half time! A good half from Real Madrid without really stretching Roma's goalkeeper. The Italians will need to up their game if they want to win this one!

    • 39' Isco plays in Carvajal into the box but his low cross can only find Skorupski who gathers.
    • 38' Back again! Another technical error. All you missed was a huge long ball by Pepe brought down by Bale but his shot was wild and over the crossbar.
    • 35' Bale inside to Modric who switches to Carvajal. His first time lay off to Lucas is cut out by Castan.

    • 25' Roma back on the ball with Benatia who plays it to Totti on the half way line. He sweeps his right foot across the ball and over the top to Florenzi on the overlap but Coentrao's pace does him a favour and he is able to get back after a poor first touch from the right-back.

    • 1' And we're under way here at the Cotton Bowl Arena! This promises to be feisty. Seydou Keita very unhappy with Pepe pre-kick off for allegedly throwing a water bottle at him. Let's see. Roma kick-off.
    • 02.38 The players are out and Real Madrid are lining up in a 'Fuschia' kit. To the regular person it just looks pink. Roma are in all white.
    • 02.35 Five minutes to go before kick off. Both teams are out in this huge arena in Dallas for what we're hoping is going to be a competitive encounter between two huge European sides. However, a friendly is a friendly and Madrid and Roma will hope first and foremost their teams get through the match with no injuries.
    • 02.28 Well we should be treated to a feast tonight as both managers select strong line-ups. Roma's new £30 million signing Juan Iturbe gets a run-out with his new team-mates while Real Madrid include Gareth Bale and Isco in their attacking line-up. Exciting stuff.
