    • Granada CF
    • Real Madrid
    • 90+3' There goes the final whistle! A first win for Granada over Real Madrid in 41 years is enough for the home side to escape from the relegation zone. Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+1' The Granada fans in party mood. Almost over the line in this match.
    • 89' We are into three minutes of time added on.
    • 88' A Ramos pass is cut out. Doesn't look like it is going to be Real's night as a Ramos cross is then caught by Tono.
    • 87' Marcelo hoists a long ball forward from the back. Horrendous stuff again as it ends straight out of play.
    • 86' Ortiz is going to be thrown on here to take over from Torje for Granada for these closing moments.
    • 85' Mourinho cuts a bemused figure on the side of the pitch as his side stares defeat square in the face here.
    • 84' Utterly forgettable stuff from Real Madrid, who look a pale shadow of the side that romped to the Spanish title a year ago.
    • 83' Great run by Callejón. Shot stopped by Tono, but Benzema misses an open goal from the rebound! Amazing stuff. How did he miss that?
    • 82' Recio takes a dive under pressure from Alonso. Clear dive, but that could easily have ended up with a second yellow and a red for Alonso.
    • 81' Di Maria's cross is cut out by a posse of Granada shirts.
    • 80' Di Maria takes a tumble at the other end. Looked very theatrical. He is back on his feet seconds later after Mainz tried to make the challenge.
    • 79' Torje taking a bit of a dive in the Real box. Pretty predictable stuff brings nothing from the referee.
    • 78' Marcelo races into a late, late challenge from behind. Pretty woeful attempt to tackle Torje and he is booked.
    • 77' Nyom knocks the ball behind as Real earn a corner. Modric's delivery is headed over for another corner, but the second attempt is just as poor. All too easy for Granada here.
    • 76' Think Ronaldo may have stretched a groin here. Doesn't look to be moving too freely. Seems to be limping.
    • 75' Di Maria's cross just drops away from Ronaldo after Benzema had flicked the ball on.
    • 74' Di Maria miles out with an attempt on goal. Some really horrid play by the visiting side. The theme continues.
    • 73' Aranda departs the scene to be replaced by Lionel Messi's friend Buonanotte.
    • 72' Real just playing in front of Granada. Callejón dashes into the home area, but he is deemed to be just offside.
    • 71' Ramos and Verane come up for a corner, but Tono is out of his goal to punch clear the danger.
    • 70' Into the final 20 minutes. But another awful cross by Di Maria. Sums up the level of the Real performance this evening.
    • 69' Aranda goes deep with a cross into the visiting box, but Nolito's control eludes him at the key moment.
    • 68' Ronaldo trying to open his box of tricks, but he can't get a shot at goal as the ball deflects behind for a Granada goalkick.
    • 67' That could and should have been a second booking for Modric. Granada are correct! Real should really be down to 10 men. Poor decision by the referee.
    • 66' Modric controls the ball with the upper part of his arm. Granada calling for the second yellow and the red, but the referee says no.
    • 65' Inigo Lopez needing a bit of treatment after Benzema seemed to run straight into him. Didn't look too much in that.
    • 64' Real make their final change of the evening as Marcelo is wheeled on to replace Coentrao.
    • 63' Modric has been booked for taking out Mikel Rico with a late sliding challenge.
    • 62' Mainz cuts out a Modric pass. All too easy for the home side as another attack collapses.
    • 61' Still waiting for a Real charge, so to speak. Has been very listless. And has not really improved as a Callejon corner is knocked away.
    • 60' Ighalo with a little flick in the middle of the Real box. Diego Lopez content to see that trundle wide.
    • 59' Ronaldo fires a shot at goal. A low trundling effort ends up landing safely in the arms of Tono.
    • 58' Marcelo is getting warmed up for Real Madrid, who may well make their third change of the evening soon. Benzema offside for the visitors.
    • 57' This looks a very jaded Real Madrid side. Amazing stuff really when you consider how impressive Real were against Barca earlier in the week.
    • 56' Another horrid piece of play by Real Madrid as Alonso ends up knocking a pass straight out of play.
    • 55' Odion Ighalo is shown the yellow card with Alonso also booked. I assume that is for dissent.
    • 54' Siqueira takes a dive in the Real box. Clear dive looking to con the referee for a penalty. Nothing doing.
    • 53' Granada looking very comfortable as another Ronaldo error in failing to control the ball presents Granada with cheap possession.
    • 52' Di Maria with a long ball from out wide. Poor, poor stuff again as the cross ends up arching straight into the arms of Tono.
    • 51' More frustration for Ronaldo as he is deemed to be offside. At least a yard offside.
    • 50' Granada would move out of the relegation zone with a win here. What an outcome that would be from what looked such a daunting evening.
    • 49' Alonso with a decent delivery into the box, but Nyom is well positioned to do the clearing work from his own area.
    • 48' Changes for Real Madrid as José Maria Callejón replaces Khedira with Karim Benzema taking over from Higuain.
    • 47' Granada chasing their first win over Real Madrid in over 40 years, but plenty can happen between now and full-time.
    • 46' We are off and running then in the second half. A freezing night.
    • 45' There goes the whistle for the break! A 1-0 lead for Granada at half-time.
    • 44' Not going to be much time added to the first period.
    • 43' Tono with the goalkick. This is a pretty forgettable first half for Real.
    • 42' Sloppy play by Granada at the back. Almost presents an easy chance for Khedira, but he ends up dragging the shot wide of goal.
    • 41' Ighalo with a fine run into the Real box, but he hesitates before pulling the trigger. Knocks the shot wide and the chance is lost.
    • 40' Ronaldo tracked well by Mainz as another visiting attack fails to bring the equaliser.
    • 39' Di Maria fails to pick out Coentrao on the run. Real continue to toil to cut through the middle of this Granada defence.
    • 38' Nolito with the corner. No real drama this time as the visiting side do their business properly from the delivery.
    • 37' Real Madrid have lost three of the four away league games in which they have conceded the first goal this season.
    • 36' Di Maria taking up a decent position in a wide area, but the cross again lacks true quality as it evades a handful of Granada players.
    • 35' Modric with a high, hopeful looping pass but straight into the arms of Tono.
    • 34' Cristiano Ronaldo is the first Real Madrid forward to score an own goal in La Liga since 1998/99.
    • 33' Ronaldo sends the free-kick spinning into the Granada wall before Alonso lifts a pass straight out of play. Poor, poor stuff from Real.
    • 32' A handball and a booking for Lopez after some fine play by Higuain. Free-kick 22 yards or so from the home goal.
    • 31' Mourinho well wrapped up on that visiting bench. He is wearing a huge scarf. His side need to take the gloves off soon.
    • 30' Ramos with a poor, poor pass from distance. Tono with the goalkick for the home side, who won't bother too much about those sort of passes.
    • 29' Lopez challenges Modric, who goes to ground under little or no pressure. Referee telling him to get on with it.
    • 28' Since the start of last season, only Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have better minutes/goal ratios than Gonzalo Higuain (86.9) in La Liga.
    • 27' Ronaldo gets plenty of action on that ball, but the free-kick flies a few yards wide of goal.
    • 26' Real earn a free-kick 25 yards from the home goal after Modric is hauled back in the middle of the park.
    • 25' Real trying to pass their way out of trouble from deep. Not yet done much in front of the home goal despite their possession.
    • 24' An offside flag goes up against Higuain as he set off too soon.
    • 23' Fábio Coentrão can't escape the attention of his markers. Granada digging in here to protect this 1-0 lead.
    • 22' Not sure that counts as his 22nd goal this season. But his 21 goals in La Liga are more than the home team's 19 in the Spanish top flight. Granada holding this advantage.
    • 21' GOAL! Ronaldo scores an own goal for Real Madrid. Heads a corner into his net. Nothing he could do. Granada lead 1-0.
    • 20' Mourinho pacing the touchline with some intent. Arbeloa with a fine clearance in front of his own goal from Aranda's cross. Real all over the place at the back.
    • 19' Modric throws the corner deep. Gonzalo Higuaín can't latch onto the loose ball as Granada look to break, but a lack of a cutting edge as the move breaks down.
    • 18' Lopez comes across to make a timely challenge on Khedira. Modric with another fine pass. Corner to Real.
    • 17' Levante have won more points following goals in the final five minutes than any other team while Espanyol have lost the most - five.
    • 16' Nolito on the break for Granada, but he overhits a pass in acres of space. Easy pickings for Diego Lopez in the visiting goal.
    • 15' Granada have lost their last six league games against Real Madrid, conceding 17 goals in total and netting just four.
    • 14' Alonso with an awful passback towards Lopez, who does just enough to scramble the ball clear. Sloppy play by the visitors.
    • 13' Nolito throws a corner into the heart of the Real box, but Lopez nods over under pressure from Varane. First real attack of the night from the home team.
    • 12' Aranda tries to send Odion Ighalo racing clear, but Fábio Coentrão is doing superbly well to cover the danger.
    • 11' Toño comes for a corner, fails to collect but Ronaldo has been penalised for a spot of wrestling on Recio. Free-kick to the home side.
    • 10' Nyom showing great strength to halt Coentrão as he bounded into the opposition area. Granada toiling to get out of their half.
    • 9' Lucas Alcaraz looking very smart on the side of the park. The Granada coach studying his side and his options here.
    • 8' Real Madrid & Granada have met each other 37 times in La Liga: 24 victories for the whites, eight draws and only five defeats for the visiting side.
    • 7' Di Maria with a ball to the feet of Khedira, who just fails to control the loose ball. All Real so far here.
    • 6' Real side this evening: Diego López, Varane, Ramos, Coentrao, Khedira, Ronaldo, Alonso, Arbeloa, Modric, Higuaín, Di María..subs: Adán, Benzema, Carvalho, Marcelo, Essien, Albiol, Callejón
    • 5' Defender gets a block in to deny Ronaldo and Real have a corner here. Di Maria with the corner, but Granada survive. Just fails to fall to Ramos.
    • 4' Fábio Coentrão with a header from the edge of the box. Flies straight into the arms of Tono in the home goal.
    • 3' Real trying to get on the ball here as they come forward. Some decent passing play by the visitors as you would expect.
    • 2' Real making five changes from the 1-1 draw with Barcelona in the Copa Dey Rey first leg. Luka Modric starting for the visiting side this evening. Jose Mourinho penning a few notes.
    • 1' We are off and running here in this contest.
