    • 90' No stoppage time here, to the relief of Atletico. Real take the derby honours. Thanks for following the action here on Eurosport, follow me on Twitter - @liamhappe
    • 89' Reyes is fouled in the centre circle but Atletico surrender possession within seconds of taking the free-kick.
    • 88' Dominguez's heavy first touch scuppers a chance for the away side to break. Goal kick Real.
    • 87' Callejon fails to control a cross-field pass and concedes a defensive throw-in.
    • 86' Pepe heads wide from the free-kick, but the flag went up anyway.
    • 85' Dominguez with a terrible challenge from behind on Khedira. Perhaps the ref feels that he's shown his cards enough already, but that was a yellow card offence all day long.
    • 84' Atletico and Barcelona were the only two sides to have avoided red cards this season up until tonight. Now it's just the champions.
    • 83' Atletico unsurprisingly make a defensive switch straight after the penalty, with Salvio off and Miranda on.
    • 82' It'll be Ronaldo again from 12 yards... and it's 4-1!
    • 81' Another Real penalty! And ANOTHER straight red, this one for Godin!
    • 80' Assuncao comes in heavy on Alonso. Only the free-kick given though.
    • 79' And now the hosts make their final switch, with Ozil once again coming off just shy of the closing stages and Coentrao the man on in his place.
    • 78' It's Turan coming off for Reyes.
    • 77' Reyes is about to come on for Atletico.
    • 76' Nice break by the visitors after Real threaten once more, but they lose the ball on the edge of the area.
    • 74' Benzema is given a standing ovation as he makes way for Callejon, who shone midweek against Dinamo Zagreb.
    • 73' Again the free-kick fails to threaten. Surprised Real haven't tried to shake things up in that particular department.
    • 72' Dominguez is lucky to only get a warning for a wild challenge on Ozil. It'll be another chance for Alonso to whip a cross in from a set piece on the wing.
    • 71' Benzema fires one straight at Asenjo.
    • 70' Exhibition-style passing from Real now. Atletico are tiring and heads are down.
    • 68' Alonso crosses the free-kick in from the right and the clearance only lands as far as Khedira, who is unable to realise his dream and instead skies his half-volley.
    • 67' Felipe is booked for a foul on Diarra.
    • 66' Godin hesitates sending a bouncing ball back to the keeper, allowing the striker to steal possession and skip past Asenjo and another defender before slotting into an empty net.
    • 65' Higuain makes it 3-1! Game over now surely?
    • 64' Salvio dribbles well to get as far as the 'D' but is outnumbered and dispossessed.
    • 63' Felipe cuts out a fast-flowing Real move.
    • 62' Di Maria makes way for Higuain in the home side's first change.
    • 60' Again Ronaldo is thwarted inside the Atletico box.
    • 59' Benzema and Ronaldo get a little too luxury with their passes in the final third, denying themselves a chance to actually shoot at goal.
    • 58' Gabi's speculative effort from 25 yards goes well over the crossbar.
    • 56' Perea closes down a Ronaldo shot attempt from the edge of the area.
    • 55' Ramos wins possession in the centre-circle, followed by a free-kick when he's caught soon after.
    • 54' The visitors clear the free-kick as it's sent into the danger zone.
    • 53' Di Maria once again goes down easily, this time from Salvio, and Real have a free-kick on the left wing.
    • 52' Benzema causes headaches for the defence and forces them to concede an attacking throw.
    • 50' Ronaldo attempts to wriggle away from Godin as he runs into the box, but instead opts to try and square it to Benzema for the tap-in. His off-balance pass misses the striker but meets the run of Di Maria, who slams the ball into the roof of the net.
    • 49' Real take the lead! It's Di Maria with the goal!
    • 48' Di Maria crosses in from the right and again Ronaldo is unable to get onto it, this time the ball a little too high for anyone unable to use their hands, meaning Asenjo collects.
    • 47' Ronaldo is unable to get decent contact on a neat Di Maria loft into the box. He was under pressure from Perea, but really should have tested Asenjo at the very least.
    • 46' Real kick off the second half.
    • 45+4' Benzema fires a shot straight at Asenjo after good work by Ozil, and that is the final act of the first half.
    • 45+3' The previous update is revisited by Marcelo and Benzema, only this time the cut-back finds the Frenchman whose shot is well blocked.
    • 45+2' Marcelo gets into space on the left again and moves inside the area but his driven cross is just behind Benzema.
    • 45+1' Three minutes added on at the end of the half.
    • 45' Marcelo wins a corner at the peak of a good attack from Real, but Athletico get it away.
    • 44' The Bernabeu is relatively muted at the moment. Safe to assume the recent winning streak at home from Real has made their season ticket holders somewhat expectant of victory.
    • 43' Ozil gives away a free-kick just inside the Athletico half.
    • 42' Have to say, Athletico are playing quite positively when they are getting the ball. The routine fouls appear to be working how they hoped they would.
    • 40' After all the cards for the visitors, Alonso becomes the first Real player to enter the book for a foul on Salvio.
    • 39' Turan heads an Athletico corner over.
    • 38' The free-kick goes towards the far post and is headed back across goal but Ronaldo fires over under pressure from Gabi.
    • 37' Felipe catches Di Maria as the two go for a loose ball. Free-kick, but no yellow this time, despite Di Maria's Oscar-nominee reactions on the ground.
    • 36' Gabi's the next away player to go into the book after he clatters Ozil. I'm not sure they're going to finish this game with even ten men left.
    • 35' Khedira is fouled but nothing's given - despite Real and Mourinho being furious, Ronaldo continues on and fires just wide of the upright with a decent low effort.
    • 34' Alonso takes the free-kick but fails to beat the first man at the near post.
    • 33' Ronaldo nears top speed on the left wing but is hacked down by Perea. A cast-iron booking for the right-back.
    • 32' Adrian almost gets on the end of a quick counter, would have been through if not for a good interception.
    • 30' Possession starting to lean more and more Real's way now, of course.
    • 29' Well-timed run out by Asenjo to beat Benzema to a dangerous pass into the area. A far cry from Courtois' goalkeeping efforts against the Frenchman which led to his dismissal.
    • 28' Diarra and Ramos combine to prevent Salbio from getting into the box.
    • 27' That penalty was Ronaldo's 15th league goal of the season, by the way.
    • 26' Turan is booked for a foul on Di Maria. To the shock of no-one, the winger is absolutely fine as soon as the card goes back into the ref's book.
    • 24' ...and his first duty is to pick the ball out of the net, as Ronaldo despatches the spot kick with ease. 1-1!
    • 23' It's the booked Diego who is sacrificed. Surprising decision and one that suggests the 10-man visitors will defend for the rest of the game. Sergio Asenjo comes on...
    • 22' Benzema is put clean through on the counter and is tripped by the keeper as he looked set to round him to tap home an equaliser. Ronaldo will take the spot kick, but of course we'll have a bit of a pause first while Athletico prepare to bring on their sub goalie.
    • 21' PENALTY REAL! RED CARD FOR COURTOIS!
    • 20' Athletico cross but it's cleared. Another half-chance to make something happen.
    • 18' To make matters worse, Diego is booked for it once the referee diffuses the two sides' various spats.
    • 17' Di Maria is fouled by Felipe and reacts with a shoulder barge. Diego rushes over to seperate the two - and Di Maria goes down like he's shot. From being separated. Pathetic.
    • 16' Their impressive start just got better. Real haven't really got out of the blocks yet.
    • 15' Real clear Gabi's delivery, but Athletico retain possession and work themselves into a shooting possession with some superb first-time passes - and it's finished by Adrian! Athletico take the lead!
    • 14' The away side almost get into the Real box, but make do with their first corner.
    • 13' Athletico will be happy with the start. It is weird seeing Real create so little at the beginning of a game.
    • 11' Turan slides in on Di Maria. Free-kick. Athletico are unsurprisingly throwing their weight around early doors in an attempt to frustrate their local rivals.
    • 10' It is, and the hosts win the first corner of the game from it, but are unable to produce anything.
    • 9' Benzema wins a free-kick about 30 yards out to the right. Looks like one to be whipped into the box...
    • 8' Assuncao appears to foul Ronaldo, but nothing is given.
    • 7' Diego's attempt to send Turan through is cut out.
    • 6' Benzema shoots over after being stood up well on the edge of the box by two defenders.
    • 5' Salvio's low cross is intercepted.
    • 4' Speaking of Khedira, he claimed he dreamt that his first league goal for Real would come in today's game.
    • 3' Speaking of Khedira, he sends the first shot of the game miles off target.
    • 2' Nice tussle for possession between Khedira and Gabi in the centre circle, eventually won out by the German.
    • 1' Real are the first side to get the ball down and spray passes around, though Athletico make a few early interceptions. They look focused on the job at hand.
    • 19:00 The visitors kick off the Madrid derby.
