    FT: Atletico 1-1 Real Madrid!! All over at the Wanda and Benzema's late leveller cancelled out Luis Suarez's first half goal and the points are shared. It's definitely a fair score given RM's improvement in the second half. It's the perfect result for Barca who remain in the title race. Thanks for joining us and see you again soon!

  • 46'
    Back underway here!
  • 45'
    There are some handbags between Koke and Nacho as the RM man tried to speak to the ref, but it's quickly broken up.
  • 45'
    HT: Atletico 1-0 Real Madrid! Half-time at the Wanda and Atletico lead thanks to a Luis Suarez goal after 14 minutes. However, there will be lots of talk about the RM penalty shout turned down just before the interval. The ball struck Felipe's arm, the VAR called the ref over, but the on-field official stuck with his initial call of no penalty. It was borderline, but I believe the right decision was given. The hosts have been the better side in the first 45 and this would be a huge three points
  • 45'
    45+1: Kroos has an effort which is deflected into Oblak's hands.
  • 45'
    Two added minutes.
  • 45'
    Seeing the handball shout again makes me agree with the ref even more. RM won't be happy though and you can understand their frustration.
  • 43'
    And the ref says no penalty!! It could have gone either way, but I think that's a good decision. It wouldn't have been scandalous had he given it though.
  • 42'
    The ref is going to the screen! It could go either way, but it wouldn't surprise me if he gave it. His arm is definitely out at the beginning, but he brings it back in. It's 50:50 and the ref is taking his time.
  • 41'
    The ball touches Felipe's arm and his arm is out at the beginning, but then he brings it back in. It's borderline, but I think it won't be given.
  • 40'
    RM shouting for a penalty for handball and nothing's given.
  • 40'
    RM get themselves a corner.
  • 38'
    Suarez!!! Llorente and Suarez combine again, the Spaniard cuts the ball back from the byline and the Uruguayan doesn't connect properly with the volley. It's easily stopped by Courtois.
  • 36'
    The game has quietened down in the last few minutes and little has happened.
  • 33'
    Still 1-0 and Atletico are looking reasonably comfortable despite some RM attacks.
  • 31'
    Hermoso brings down Rodrygo, a free-kick is awarded and the ref is having a chat to Simeone. The Argentine didn't like the decision.
  • 30'
    Mendy is fouled by Llorente and it's a free-kick to RM.
  • 29'
    Modric then has a go, but hits well over.
  • 29'
    Casemiro!!! Asensio's ball in is half-cleared by Atletico and Casemiro's shot from distance is saved by Oblak!
  • 25'
    Atletico go forward again through Correa, but Carrasco can't quite get on the end of the pass. The home side are playing well here.
  • 23'
    Lemar goes down this near side and looks to pick up Suarez, but it's blocked by Casemiro and the ball goes for a throw-in.
  • 22'
    Trippier has gone down with a injury after a knee on knee clash with Mendy. He's ok though.
  • 21'
    Vazquez puts a ball into the box and Felipe heads it away.
  • 18'
    Benzema!!! Real try down the left, Asensio crosses for Benzema in the middle, but the Frenchman misses his kick in the area.
  • 15'
    It's been a positive start by Simeone's men and they've been rewarded.
  • 14'
    Suarez scores for Atletico!!!! A pass sees Llorente reach the ball before Nacho, he drives the ball down the right towards the box and then plays a through ball for Suarez who beats Courtois with ease. Lovely goal!
  • 13'
    Carrasco gets into the box and goes one way and then other, but Vazquez anticipates it and halts his progress.
  • 12'
    RM are starting to have a bit of possession now.
  • 10'
    Benzema looks to get into the box, but Trippier stops him and even gets the goal kick.
  • 9'
    Change of ball here as it seems to be too light.
  • 7'
    Trippier pushes Rodrygo and Zidane's side have a free-kick at midfield. Atletico have started the better here.
  • 6'
    Trippier sends one into the area and it's cleared.
  • 4'
    Suarez's free-kick hits the wall and goes for a corner.
  • 3'
    Free-kick to the home side after Suarez is fouled 30 yards from goal.
