    • 90+2' That's it! Real's preparations for the Champions League showdown with Man United go perfectly with the 4-1 win over Sevilla.
    • 90' Two extra minutes to be played.
    • 89' The game's 11th yellow card goes to Morata. That includes the four for Maduro and Higain's sendings-off.
    • 88' Modric almost deliberately gets a yellow for kicking the ball away. He will now miss Vallecano, which kinda reinforces the possibility of it being a tactical yellow to wipe his slate clean at minmal risk.
    • 87' GOAL SEVILLA! Great run to the edge of the box and even better finish by Manu, who has had a great cameo despite the result. 4-1!
    • 85' Corner now but Modric's delivery is cleared.
    • 84' Essien! Great save by Beto!
    • 82' Arbeloa is the latest player to go into the book.
    • 81' RED CARD for Maduro! He slides in rash on Essien and that's definitely a second booking. It's 10 v 10.
    • 80' Great ball by Manu puts Negredo through in the area! But the forward's first touch and good pressure from Albiol forces him away from goal where his effort ends up off-target.
    • 79' Kondogbia has had a decent game despite the scoreline. The promising youngster is replaced by Javi Hervas in the final switch of the match.
    • 78' He tries and fails to pick out a header.
    • 77' Modric is fouled by Moreno 35 yards out and with Ronaldo withdrawn, it'll be the Croatian to take it.
    • 76' Still 2-0 Granada elsewhere.
    • 75' Negredo looks set to race through but Albiol comes across in time and forces the striker to try a shot from 20 yards, which goes over.
    • 73' Manu forces a spill from Lopez with a good drive from distance, and the keeper recovers to collect the ball before Negredo can get there to convert the rebound.
    • 72' Sevilla have one more sub left, Real's are all used up.
    • 70' Medel is replaced by Alberto Moreno while Manu del Moral is on for Reyes.
    • 69' Modric has a free-kick cleared away.
    • 68' Double sub for Madrid as Kaka and Benzema make way for Pepe and Jose Callejon.
    • 67' Of course, the suspension is domestic so he'll be fine for midweek.
    • 66' RED CARD for Higuain! Silly cynical clip of Navarro's feet earns him his second booking. At 4-0 up, there was no need to even do that.
    • 65' 17 - Cristiano Ronaldo has scored more hat tricks than any other player in La Liga in the last 10 seasons (Messi 16).
    • 64' Maduro slides through Kaka and is booked.
    • 63' Yep, here we go. Standing ovation for Ronaldo as he makes way for Alvaro Morata, unharmed and more importantly with a huge confidence and momentum boost.
    • 62' One would assume Ronaldo will shortly be withdrawn. Really is no further need for him to risk injury ahead of the United clash.
    • 61' Reyes with a well-guided drive but again Lopez reads it well and catches.
    • 60' That's his third treble against Sevilla.
    • 59' Reyes' free-kick is cleared and here comes another Real counter. Ronaldo brings it forward and feeds Higuain on the right who returns the favour with a superb low cross for a two-yard tap in and a Ronaldo hat-trick! 4-0
    • 58' Sevilla clear and break but Kaka fouls Navas for a booking.
    • 57' Coentrao wins the hosts a corner.
    • 56' The Sevilla striker races clean through but was offside.
    • 55' Another close call from Sevilla as Negredo is just unable to connect with Kondogbia's low cross at close range.
    • 54' Spahic clears a Ronaldo cross.
    • 53' Speaking of great starts to a second half, Granada are 2-0 up at Deporivo.
    • 52' Reyes puts it into the wall and Real get the ball clear.
    • 51' A good chance to pull one back for the away side as they win a free-kick just to the right of the Madrid 'D'.
    • 50' Exhibition stuff as Ronaldo toys with defenders just inside the area before teeing up Modric to fire over the bar.
    • 48' Not the start Sevilla would have wanted, and surely that's the game.
    • 47' GOAL MADRID! Right off the bat Fazio makes a nightmare error which Ronaldo punishes with a slotted finish across Beto. He's on his hat-trick and Real are 3-0 up!
    • 46' And we're back up and running for the second half.
    • 45' Half-time and Real are comfortably up at 2-0 through Benzema and Ronaldo.
    • 44' Ramos again as he rises well for the corner.... great save by Beto, just getting to the bottom corner in time to grab it!
    • 43' After a delay, Ronaldo goes for goal from the free-kick and it takes a wicked bounce ahead of Beto forcing the keeper to parry. Ramos goes for the rebound and wins a corner.
    • 42' Poor delivery is cleared and Navas also enters the book for bringing down Benzema as the hosts counter.
    • 41' Now another free-kick for the visitors on the right wing.
    • 40' It's also a dangerous free-kick position, 28 from goal just left of centre, but while Reyes gets a decent effort on target it's well seen and caught by Lopez.
    • 39' Higuain is booked for a deliberate handball in another attempted Madrid breakaway.
    • 37' Both are okay to continue, at least.
    • 36' Play resumes however and when the Sevilla attack fizzles out, Real counter and Ronaldo fires over.
    • 35' Medel and Coentrao are down from an accidental clash of heads.
    • 33' Arbeloa pulls back Maduro which ends a Real advance.
    • 32' Should have been 2-1! Navas dances past Coentrao on the right and his low cross finds Reyes, who takes a touch before firing for the lower near corner but it's a great save by Lopez to hold it and deny the former Real man.
    • 31' It's still goalless between Deportivo and Granada in the other Liga match which kicked off at the same time.
    • 30' Navas strikes from 25 but it's straight at Lopez.
    • 28' Sevilla come forward down the left but run out of ideas and Kondogbia's eventual diagonal cross is easily cleared.
    • 27' The technique on that strike was absolute perfection. The curve, the dip and the speed behind the ball. Smashing stuff.
    • 26' RONALDO! 2-0! No signs of pain or discomfort there as he doubles the lead with a fantastic 25-yard drive from Kaka's tee-off. 2-0!
    • 25' Mourinho flashes a rare smile from the sidelines. Nice to see.
    • 24' Sevilla have been almost submissive in midfield so far. No fight at all.
    • 22' Higuain tees up Kaka, who brushes off another couple of defenders before firing straight at Beto. The Brazilian is looking very confident so far.
    • 21' Negredo floats in a ball from the left but his old team-mate Lopez claims.
    • 20' Almost a lovely back-heeled completion of a 1-2 by Navas as Coke overtakes him into the box from the right but it's cleared.
    • 19' Real want to build on that and Modric is inches wide of the far post from distance.
    • 17' GOAL REAL! The easiest goal Benzema will ever score! Great ball in by Ronaldo eludes the Frenchman, but it rebounds off the face off the sliding defender Navarro and lands at the striker's feet ON the goal line. A zero-yard finish. 1-0!
    • 15' Splendid Real counter sees Kaka easily glide into the area by the right-hand byline but it's a good block on the cut-back attempt by Spahic.
    • 14' Driven Navas centre from the right is cleared by Albiol.
    • 13' Ramos and Arbeloa try to play their way out of the danger but only invite even more pressure.
    • 12' Ronaldo clips Navas mid-stride and it's a free-kick just inside the Real half.
    • 11' Kaka gets good power behind a 20-yard shot which Beto stops.
    • 10' Perhaps Mourinho wants Ronaldo to stay match-tuned with at least some action tonight, but he doesn't look completely fit.
    • 9' In taking the throw, Ronaldo does indeed look in pain already.
    • 8' Real look set for a first corner but it's well rescued by Coke for just a throw.
    • 7' @KafiReal says it'll be: "RM 3:0 SEVILA" - no bias there then? I kid. Could very well be the case and if so, I owe you an apology. The rest of you, get in on the act by following @liamhappe on Twitter.
    • 5' Navas looks to weave his way through the backtracking defenders but was offside for the initial ball forward.
    • 4' Ronaldo is not at 100% and it's a big risk playing him tonight especially after the internationals midweek, too. With the league looking lost the Champions League is surely a priority.
    • 3' Beto of course in goal for Sevilla after their former keeper Lopez joined - yep - Real Madrid. Both are out between the sticks tonight.
    • 2' Ronaldo has the first crack at goal but the 25-yarder is comfortably held by Beto.
    • 1' Real kick us off and here we go!
    • 20:55 The teams are out on the pitch at the Bernabeu and we're almost ready to get going. What's your prediction? Let me know via Twitter - @liamhappe - and I'll cut and paste your comments here on the matchcast.
