94'
FULL TIME: Atletico Madrid 1-0 Real Madrid
93'
Godin does just enough to block Ramos' run as he attempts to make a connection on Carvajal's cross. Real Madrid's grasp on the Spanish Super Copa is slipping!
92'
Even with ten men Real Madrid are pushing forward looking for one final chance. But Atletico aren't even allowing them to get a cross into the box. They're such a well drilled team defensively.
91'
 
SENT OFF! Luka Modric (Real Madrid) - second yellow card
Atlético de Madrid Substitution
90'
Four minutes of stoppage time to be played.
89'
 
Atletico Madrid: Raul Garcia OFF, Saul Niguez ON
88'
 
YELLOW CARD: Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)
87'
Ronaldo takes it upon himself to try and beat the Atletico backline, beating two players before cutting inside to have a shot at goal. However, Godin is out quickly to make the block.
86'
Real Madrid are pressing hard for a winner but their tactics aren't really extending further than just pinging crosses into the box. Has Ancelotti taken a page out the David Moyes playbook?
85'
It looked like Rodriguez would be leaving Atletico at the end of last season, with the player making it clear that he wasn't happy with being just a sub for the club. And yet here he is....
Atlético de Madrid Substitution
84'
 
Atletico Madrid sub: Mario Mandzukic OFF, Cristian Rodriguez ON.
83'
Isco plays a wonderful outside of the foot pass into the box for Bale to run on to, but the Welshman tries to strike it at goal on the volley first time, with his effort drifting wide of the target.
82'
Benzema drives forward with the ball and plays the ball into Ronaldo looking for the one-two. But the two aren't in perfet sync and the return pass from Ronaldo is just a yard behind his teammate.
80'
Carvajal cuts inside onto his left foot off the right wing and looks for Ronaldo with a cross into the box. But the Real Madrid winger can't stoop to reach the ball and Moya gathers comfortably
79'
 
YELLOW CARD: Isco (Real Madrid)
78'
Ronaldo has failed to impose himself on this game since coming on at the break. He's clearly unfit and struggling with injury. It looks to me like he needs a prolonged break from football to recover.
77'
Is there a fitter team in Europe than Simeone's Atletico Madrid side? They are relenteless in their pressing of the ball and are so quick to break out on the counter when they win it back.
76'
Mandzukic runs through on goal, seemingly a yard ahead of Carvajal. However, the Real Madrid defender barges the striker over, with the Croatian looking for a foul. But the referee waves away the claims! Wow!
75'
 
YELLOW CARD: Raul Garcia (Atletico Madrid)
74'
 
Atletico Madrid sub: Antoine Griezmann OFF, Raul Jimenez ON.
Atlético de Madrid Substitution
73'
Glorious chance for Griezmann! Marcelo is slack on the ball, allowing Griezmann to sprint through on goal down the right side, but he doesn't quite get enough purchase on his shot and the ball dribbles wide.
72'
Fantastic effort by Koke! He takes control of a pass in behind the Real midfield, and cuts across his shot from 20 yards. The shot swerves and dips, deceiving Casillas, but flies just over the bar.
71'
 
Real Madrid sub: Fabio Coentrao OFF, Marcelo ON.
Real Madrid Substitution
70'
Ronaldo lines up the freekick, with Bale standing beside him in a sulk. And the Real Madrid number seven slams his shot straight into the wall. Maybe Bale should have taken it?
69'
Griezmann hacks down his international teammate Benzema on the edge of the box. He's a fantastic attacker, but I think they call that 'a Paul Scholes.' Very late challenge from the Frenchman.
68'
 
YELLOW CARD: Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid)
67'
Atletico are now trying to keep hold of the ball for as long as possible, which is only serving to frustrate Real Madrid. I think the idea is that Real will be drawn out, creating more space for Atletico to exploit in behind.
66'
Rodriguez played well in the first half but has since faded. Can Isco provide the Real Madrid frontline with the ammunition they need to mount a comeback?
65'
 
Real Madrid sub: James Rodriguez OFF, Isco ON.
Real Madrid Substitution
64'
Real Madrid are playing on the counter attack more and more as this game comes to a close. This time the ball works out to Bale on the right hand side, who smashes a strike at goal, but it is blocked.
63'
Ronaldo lines up a shot from the best part of 30 yards, but despite the ball moving in the air Moya gets enough behind it to make the save and hold onto the ball as well.
62'
There's a guy in a Real Madrid shirt watching the game from behind Simeone, who surely can't see much of the action for the Atletico boss standing in the way. What do you reckon? Does he ask him to sit down?
61'
Ronaldo uses his pace to get past Miranda on the left wing, but his cross into the box is cut out by Miranda. When you beat one the other one is there to make amends, and vice versa.

Few writing champions @Atleti off before season even started. Got Madrid well and truly rattled here. Should be a force again this season

59'
Atletico are enjoying a good spell of dominance at the moment. Garcia is in fantastic form. Simeone has completely changed the kind of player he is. He's playing as a second forward tonight!
58'
Just past the post! The ball is played back to Garcia just inside the penalty area, who wraps his foot around a shot. But the ball flashes just past the post, with Casillas scrambling to get across in time.
57'
It's worth remembering that the La Liga season starts on Monday for both of these teams. Will they have anything left in the tank for those games after their efforts tonight?
56'
Simeone is standing right behind the dug-out. I'm not sure the officials are especially happy with him being there. There's a seat right there Diego. But no, he still chooses to stand.
55'
Atletico Madrid come surging forward down the right side on the counter attack, but when the pass is played to Koke Carvajal steps out and makes the interception just inside his own box. Great chance for the hosts.
54'
As you may have guessed with the number of bookings being handed out, the tackles are flying around the game. This time Alonso is shown yellow for blocking Garcia as Atletico started a counter attack.
53'
 
YELLOW CARD: Xabi Alonso (Real Madrid)
52'
 
YELLOW CARD: Koke (Atletico Madrid)
51'
How did that stay out? Casillas did so well to claw the ball away from Mandzukic as he charged down the rebound, which was effectively bouncing on the goalline.
50'
 
Off the bar! Garcia gets a deft flick onto Koke's freekick on the edge of the box, sending the ball spinning towards goal. But it smashes off the underside of the bar and onto the turf, where Casillas makes a save to deny Mandzukic!
49'
 
YELLOW CARD: Luka Modric (Real Madrid)
48'
As was the case in the first half, this game has restarted at an intense tempo. Although this time it's Real Madrid who are pressing hard and pushing Atletico into their own half.
47'
Not a surprise that Real Madrid have thrown on Ronaldo for the second half. They have lacked a cuting edge up front and that's what the Portuguese will do. He scored 51 goals in 47 games last season.
47'
HALF TIME: Atletico Madrid 1-0 Real Madrid. Simeone's side started the game at speed, battering Real into submission with the quickest goal in Super Copa history. But Real have grown into the contest.
46'
 
Real Madrid sub: Toni Kroos OFF, Cristiano Ronaldo ON.
46'
Inches wide of the post for Rodriguez! The Colombian turns really well on the edge of the box and shoots towards goal, but his effort flashes just wide of the target. Moya was worried about that!
Real Madrid Substitution
45'
The second half is under way at the Vicente Calderon! Atletico lead 1-0 over Real Madrid.

45'
Massive opportunity for the home side! Garcia loses Coentrao from a corner kick and meets the delivery inside the six yard box, but somehow he manages to power his header over the bar.
44'
Garcia lets rip from 25 yards! He had options on either side but decides to shoot, with Casillas taking no chances. The Real Madrid keeper dives to his left to make the save. Good stop!
43'
Mandzukic is also giving a masterclass on how to lead the line as a lone striker. Oh, and he's also handing out lessons on how to jump with your elbows directly into the face of Ramos.
42'
He started off well but Griezmann has faded as the game has gone on. However, one player who hasn't faded is Tiago, who is probably having the best game I have ever seen him have for Atletico!
41'
We keep hearing about how strong Real Madrid's squad is all the way through, and indeed they have a team full of exceptional players. But now is the time to show it. Will Ancelotti use his bench at the break?
40'
This is definitely Real Madrid's best spell of the game so far. In terms of the flow of the contest it's still fairly even, but Los Blancos are now creating chances in front of goal.
39'
Great chance for Real Madrid! Bale takes a wonderful touch to move the ball away from Godin on the edge of th box, but the Welsh winger skews his shot wide of the target. He probably should have scored.
38'
Apart from anything else, Benzema needs to start scoring goals to stop Real Madrid dipping their toes into the transfer market before the window shuts. Speculation is still linking Real with a move for Falcao.
37'
Benzema hasn't had much to feed off. The French striker has actually scored just once in Real Madrid's last 15 games. By his standards that counts as a drought. He needs to find full form soon.
36'
Right on cue, Rodriguez passes up a good opportunity. The cross comes into the box from the right side, but the Colombian directs his header wide of the target from about six yards. Should have done better.
35'
Real Madrid are beginning to see more of the ball and make it stick in the final third. We still haven't seen much of Rodriguez. The star of the World Cup hasn't done much on his first start for the club.
33'
A freekick into the box from the right side is swung into the box by Alonso, but when the ball falls to the edge of the box Kroos takes a first time shot. Mandzukic slices it wide of his own goal.
32'
So is there any chance that Ancelotti brings Ronaldo on at the break? They need someone to take a grip of this game for them. Is the winger fit enough to do that tonight?
31'
Atletico are still on top and are looking for a second goal. Of course, a second goal would mean that we can't go into extra-time. Never before has a Super Copa been decided by penalties.
30'
Every time Real Madrid get into a promising position there is an Atletico player coming across to make a tackle and close them down as quickly as possible. How do they have the energy?
29'
This has been very impressive from Atletico Madrid. They are fired up for this. There's no way they're seeing this as just a pre-season game. Simeone has drilled his side so hard for this one.
28'
Before he walks down the tunnel Simeone took the opportunity to act as cheerleader and send the home crowd into something of a frenzy. He hasn't changed since the Champions League final, then.
27'
Simeone has been sent to the stand by the referee. He was going absolutely nuts! He actually seemed to slap the back of the assistant referee's head. That's what he has been sent off for.
26'
That was much better from Real Madrid. They need more movement from their attackers, who have been very quiet so far tonight. Bale has the quality to change the game though.
25'
Oh what a chance for Bale! Carvajal picks out the run of the Welsh winger, who breaks in behind the Atletico defence, but his shot is saved Moya, who did just enough to prevent if from crossing the line.
24'
The visitors are struggling to impose themselves on this game. If they are to make the breakthrough you get the feeling that it might be through a set piece. Atletico are making things so difficult for them.
23'
The tackles are flying in from both sides! Juanfran seems to have taken a kick to the face from Coentrao as both players went into a challenge, although it looked like a mistake.
22'
Real Madrid have given away a couple of fouls in the last few minutes or so, and Simeone is on the touchline asking for some yellow cards to be shown, with Tiago's booking in mind.
21'
Atletico play a quick, inventive freekick to the back post where Miranda has lost his marker, but the defender doesn't make a good connection and the ball spins up high and behind for a goal kick.
19'
 
YELLOW CARD: Tiago (Atletico Madrid)
18'
Well that was ambitious. A corner kick is defended well by Atletico, who clear the ball to the edge of the box. Modric takes it first time on the volley but his shot flashes wide of the target.
17'
Real Madrid get a chance to sling a cross into the box from a freekick, but Ramos can't rise high enough to get a contact on the ball and Atletico clear with an acrobatic scissor kick.
16'
Modric and Alonso are struggling to take control of the game in the way they normally do. Every time they get the ball Atletico, and Koke in particular, are right on top of them applying pressure.
15'
Mandzukic knocks the ball down to Griezmann, who tries to catch out Casillas with a quick, snap shot, but the effort gathers a deflection and dribbles wide of the target.
14'
Coentrao plays a pass into Rodriguez, who works his way into the box. His cross into the centre of the box is a decent one but there are no takers in a white shirt, and the ball zips out for a goal kick.
13'
Atletico still play with the same system they did last season, with Mandzukic pretty much a like-for-like swap for Costa, who of course joined Chelsea this summer. The Croatian looks a good replacement.
12'
Of course, the other big news tonight is that Angel Di Maria isn't in Real Madrid's match-day squad. Does anyone know where Ed Woodward is? Well, you can pretty much guarantee he's not in Madrid.
11'
What a breathtaking start that was by Atletico. No, I really mean it. I feel out of breath having watched them making such a high tempo start to the game. Simeone has his team so well drilled.

Mario Mandzukic: Has scored with his first shot of the game against Real Madrid

9'
Here's a statistic for you. Real Madrid haven't lost at the Vicente Calderon against Atletico Madrid in 15 years. That's right. FIFTEEN. Quite incredible. Is that run about to be snapped tonight?
8'
I haven't even had a chance to run through the team news with you! Ronaldo is on the bench for Real Madrid, with Rodriguez coming into the starting lineup. And Griezmann also starts for Atletico, having come on as a sub in the first leg.
7'
The tempo of this game is unrelenting. This time Koke goes down under the challenge of Varane in the box but the referee waves away the claims for a penalty kick. Probably the right decision.
5'
Wow! Atletico have absolutely battered Real in these opening few minutes. Ancelotti is on the touchline telling his defence to keep it tight, but they've already let Mandzukic through!
4'
 
GOAL! Atletico Madrid 1 (2 mins - Mario Mandzukic) Real Madrid 0. What a start for Atletico! Garcia wins a flick on to send Mandzukic through on goal, who finishes on the bounce past Casillas!
3'
This game has started at the pace of a Bale sprint! This time it's Garcia who has a shot saved by Casillas. Atletico are on top early on!
2'
Atletico Madrid are off to a flying start! Mandzukic almost bursts right through the centre of the Real Madrid defence, but Varane makes a slide challenge to deny the Croatian striker.
1'
We're under way here at the Vicente Calderon! It's Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid!
