    • 80' Punal drags an effort wide of goal as Osasuna continue to push for the equalising goal.

    • 45+1' There goes the whistle for the break. A 1-0 lead for the visitors. Probably deserved on the balance of play.

    • 43' Lamah thumps an effort miles over the bar from distance. Well over the bar.
    • 42' Plenty of animation on the touchline, but Simeone is looking happy enough with his lot.
    • 41' Koke whips a free-kick over the wall from 25 yards. The ball sneaks inches wide of the Osasuna goal.

    • 36' Lovely dash into the area by Falcao. Thumps the ball across the face of goal, but Flano is well positioned to clear.

    • 25' Adrian tries to pick out a team-mate in the middle, but nothing doing there as the home side clear again.
    • 24' Atletico trying to be patient to unlock this tough Osasuna rearguard. Easier said than down against a team who are one point better off them before the start of the night.
    • 23' Fernandez sweeps the ball long down the pitch. Adrian picks it up for the visitors, but he is tightly marked.
    • 22' A win tonight for Atletico would carry them level on points with sixth-placed Athletic Bilbao.
    • 21' Lamah goes for goal from distance, but his shot lacks the necessary power as Courtois dives low to his left to make a comfortable stop.
    • 20' More decent play by Punal to play in his team-mate there with a lovely pass.
    • 19' Lekic races into the Atletico box, but he is closed down and can't pull the trigger. Goalkick to the visiting side.
    • 18' Godin was fouling Flano in the box. Nothing much between these teams so far.

    • 16' Osasuna are missing Masoud Shojaei, Ion Echaide, Kike Sola, Roversio and Ibrahima Balde tonight, but have started brightly enough.
    • 15' Sergio concedes a corner, but Godin is doing a spot of pushing in the box before Adrian turns the loose ball home. Free-kick to Osasuna.
    • 14' Fine stop by Fernandez from Koke's volley. Really got hold of that effort, but the Osasuna keeper was equal to the task.
    • 13' Whipped in by Koke, but nodded away by a home shirt. Poor delivery really.
    • 12' Tiago makes a good run down a flank. Fine run, but he is blocked by the challenge of Nekounam. Corner to the visiting side.
    • 11' Ball whipped into the Atletico box, but Lekic goes just too soon and is deemed offside.
    • 10' Free-kick to the home side after Tiago clatters Lamah with a late challenge.
    • 9' Simeone out of his touchline barking a few orders after Arda Turan is tackled.
    • 8' Atletico coach Diego Simeone has brought the youngster Pedro Martin into his squad, but is missing the suspended Gabi and Diego, while Antonio Lopez is injured.
    • 7' Lekic heading just behind from the delivery by Cejudo from the corner. All very tight at the moment, but the home fans are trying to get behind Osasuna.
    • 6' Four of the five headed goals Atlético have conceded in the league this season have come on the road.
    • 5' Lekic sees a header deflected behind for a corner, but the move comes to nothing as Atletico are awarded the goalkick.
    • 4' Adrian on the run seconds later, but just too much pace on the pass as it races through for a goalkick. Fernandez launches it long down the park.
    • 3' Falcao tries to pick the ball up 25 yards out, but a defender is quick to knock the ball away from the visiting forward.
    • 2' Osasuna have only won three of their last 11 top flight meetings with Atlético.
