    • 53' GOAL ATLETICO MADRID! GABI WITH A WONDERGOAL!
    • 50' Zurutuza clatters into Adrian and is booked. One apiece now.
    • 48' Agirretxe with a big miss! A superb cross finds him unmarked at the far post but, with just the keeper to beat, he puts wide!
    • 46' Arda with a chance inside the box but he mis-hits it. Less than 20 seconds into the half!

    • 44' Atletico with a corner but the visitors clear.

    • 37' Adrian goes clean through but the flag is up, he was offside.
    • 35' Falcao with a good touch to Adrian but the attempted one-two doesn't come off.
    • 32' Another good cross from Arda but it zips over the heads of the attackers and away.
    • 30' Griezmann has a pop from the edge of the area but the effort is deflected wide!
    • 28' Suarez has a pop from range but deflected well wide.
    • 26' Filipe with a fine cross to Turan, who powers the header on goal but it flies wide!
    • 24' Atletico are all over Real here, but Bravo has not really been tested. Sociedad looking for the counter attacks but Atletico can deal with that.
    • 22' The first booking of the game goes to Mario Suarez.
    • 20' Bravo has to hoof it into the stands as Atletico chase down his defenders from the front.
    • 19'' Atletico win a free-kick around 30 yards out, but nothing comes of it as Gabi's ball is easily cleared.
    • 17' Agirretxe with a good chance for Sociedad! Great play by Prieto as he floats a cross to the far post, the defenders make a meal of it but so does the Real striker, putting straight at the keeper Courtois!
    • 16' Adriano nearly finds Arda but the Turkey midfielder can't control the pass and Sociedad clear.
    • 14' Just over by Suarez! The Atletico midfielder rose highest on the penalty spot but powers the header over the bar!

    • 11' Arda on the move once more, again looking for Falcao but he can't find him, Bravo gathering.
    • 9' Arda sends Falcao scuttling away, the Colombian plays it to the far post, a shot or a cross I don't know but it flies wide either way.
    • 7' Good cross from Turan aimed at Falcao but the Colombian can't make contact!
    • 6' Cadamuro clears as Atletico come forward. Not much to write home about in the opening stages.
    • 4' Carlos Martinez crosses from the right but again no-one meets it. Courtois claims for Atleti.
    • 3' Adrian cuts inside from the right and plays a cross to the far post, but no-one is there to meet it.
    • 1' The first half is underway!
    • 16:55 Juanfran starts for Atletico after recovering from an injury so it’s a flat back four for the hosts. Arda Turan and Miranda also return, while Koke gets a start with Diego rested.
    • 16:50 Atletico are sixth in La Liga, and a win tonight would take them fifth briefly at least. They would still be three points off the Champions League places; Sociedad are 13th, assured of their Liga status now whatever happens.
