LIVE
94'
FT: Real Madrid 0-3 CSKA Moscow. Goals from Fedor Chalov, Georgi Schennikov and Arno Sigurdsson see the visitors to a shock win here, but it is all for nothing as Viktoria Plzen's win in the group's other game sees the Russians crash out of Europe.
93'
Sigurdsson makes way for Nishimura in CSKA's final change.
93'
Fede Valverde crunches into Vlasic on halfway as he looked to launch a counter and the Uruguayan is booked for his troubles.
90'
3 minutes added on, but all the focus is on the other game in the group. Can Roma save CSKA?
90'
Isco fires tamely straight at Akinfeev from 25 yards.
88'
Another change form the visitors as Kuchaev is on for Oblyakov.
86'
Bale cushions a pass form Vinicius into the path of Asensio, but he can only lash over from the narrowest of angles.
84'
CSKA make a change as Abel Hernandez replaces goalscorer Fedor Chalov.
83'
Vinicius streaks away from his man down the left once more, but his low ball in is dealt with by Magnusson.
81'
Carvajal wins his side a corner down the left, but it is cleared away at the near post.
78'
Things are out of CSKA's hands as things stand, with the Russians needing a Roma goal.
74'
Dani Carvajal replaces Marcelo for the hosts.
73'
GOAL! CSKA MOSCOW! SIGURDSSON! 0-3! A very cool finish from the Icelandic as he sweeps into the far corner first time from just inside the box after beeing teed up by Vlasic. The bad news? Plzen are back in the lead...
71'
CLOSE! Asensio's long-range strike takes a huge deflection, but Akinfeev just about manages to re-adjust and gather the ball.
67'
Brief panic for CSKA as Plzen took the lead against Roma, but the Italians have since equalised. CSKA will claim the Europa League place as things stand.
65'
Bad news potentially for Real Madrid as Bale goes down with a knock.
64'
CLOSE! Becao almost puts through his own net as he flicks Marcelo's cross form deep over the head of Akinfeev and onto the roof of the net.
61'
Vlasic is looking a lot busier now as he shakes off a challenge to spin his man and drag an effort wide from 20 yards.
58'
Marcos Llorente makes way for Real Madrid as Toni Kroos replaces him.
55'
CHANCES! Both sides go close as Vlasic sees a fierce effort kept out at one end before Vinicius carries the ball some 35 yards on the counter. The Brazilian gets his head up to find Isco, but he takes too long to get the shot away and can only drag his strike well wide of the far post.
53'
CSKA force a succession of corners, but Real Madrid continue to hold firm.
51'
Vinicius cuts inside and looks for the far corner, but he fails to get the requisite curl on his strike and it drifts well wide.
48'
Becao curls wide after Madrid fail to clear a free-kick.
46'
Real Madrid get us back underway here and they've made a change, with Karim Benzema replaced by Gareth Bale.
45'
HT: Real Madrid 0-2 CSKA Moscow. Well, well, well. Real Madrid have dominated proceeding for the most part, hitting the bar through Marco Asensio, but two goals in six minutes towards the end of the first 45 from Fedor Chalov and Georgi Schennikov mean that it is the visitors who lead at the break.
43'
GOAL! CSKA MOSCOW! SCHENNIKOV! 0-2! Scenes! From nowhere it's two! A lovely backheel form Chalov sends Fernandes through on goal down the right and while Courtois stays big to deny him, the loose ball is met on the volley by Schennikov on the penalty spot, with his effort bobbling into the back of the net beyond the retreating Belgian.
41'
The young Spaniard opts to clip the ball into the box and the delivery is good, but CSKA see it behind for a corner, which is cleared.
40'
Nababkin comes through the back of Isco 25 yards out to hand Real Madrid a free-kick. Asensio is over this one.
37'
GOAL! CSKA MOSCOW! CHALOV! 0-1! The prolific striker is fed on the edge of the box by Sigurdsson and uses the overlap to his right as a dummy to create the space to shift the ball onto his left foot and curl an effort into the far corner! Viktoria Plzen are drawing with Roma in the group's other game, meaning CSKA will secure a Europa League place as things stand.
36'
Close! Chalov is inches away from gathering Bistrovic's ball forward ahead of Javi Sanchez. Had he made it he would have been through with only Courtois to beat!
32'
CHANCE! Asensio finds himself with a clear sight of goal after fluid one-twos with Vinicius and Benzema, but he can only fire straight at Akinfeev with his right foot. What a chance!
30'
GREAT BLOCK! the corner breaks to Benzema at the far post and he is all alone as he takes aim on the volley, but Becao comes across to make an impressive block.
29'
Asensio goes close from a similar position to earlier as his curling effort is tipped over the bar by Akinfeev.
28'
It's poor from Isco as he manages only to curl a tame effort straight into the wall.
27'
Llorente gets lucky as he appears to miss the ball as he tries to take aim from the edge of the box, but the man in the middle blows for a foul on the youngster. This is a very promising position for the home side. Isco is over it.
24'
CLOSE! OFF THE BAR! The hosts go so close to taking the lead as Vinicius ties his marker in knots down the left before seeing his low, angled effort tipped away by Akinfeev. The ball is kept alive and fed to Asensio on the corner of the box, but his fierce, curling effort clips the top of the bar on its way over!
23'
CSKA finally build up a spell of pressure as Javi Sanchez has to be alert to head away a corner after the had been kept alive at the far post, before blocking away a cross from the left.
18'
CLOSE! Vinicius brings the ball under his spell brilliantly before sending in an inviting cross from the left, but is has just too much on it for Karim Benzema in the middle.
14'
Asensio tries his luck with an ambitious effort from range, but he can't get any real purchase on the strike and Akinfeev makes a simple save away to his left.
12'
A trademark surge forward form Alvaro Odriozola earns his side a corner down the right, but this one comes to nothing.
10'
Real Madrid have quickly taken control of the ball here as CSKA sit camped on the edge of their own box.
7'
Vinicius and Benzema combine to put Marcelo in down the left, but his cross is headed to safety.
4'
Vinicius is challenge strongly by Magnusson as he looks to find the space to cross on the right. Expect the Brazilian to be busy in attack this evening.
2'
Valverde volleys into the ground and into the hands of Akinfeev at the other end. A lively start here.
1'
An early raid forward by Vlasic down the right sees him pull the ball back for Fernandes, but he screws an awkward effort well wide.

So, as expected the hosts make several changes as Fede Valverde, Jesus Vallejo, Javi Sanchez all come in. It's a remarkably strong bench from the hosts.
Prev.
REAL MADRD: Courtois; Odriozola, Javi Sanchez, Vallejo, Marcelo; M.Llorente, Valverde, Isco; Asensio, Benzema, Vincius Jr. Subs: Navas, Varane, Carvajal, Modric, Kroos, Vazquez, Bale.

'Los Blancos' have reached at least the semi-finals of the Champions League in each of the last eight seasons.
Prev.
Real Madrid have only lost five of their last 38 European matches.
Prev.
CSKA Moscow boss Viktor Goncharenko: "Whenever we talk about Real Madrid, the standards are always high. They can be performing to a high level and are capable of playing at an even higher level. We can't go out there without showing any belief in ourselves. We come here with hope. Anything can happen in a game of football and we'll have to make the most of our chances. Real Madrid remain extremely strong and tough opposition. We'll be doing our all to put in a good performance."
Prev.
Real Madrid boss Santiago Solari: "We go in to every match trying to respect our history and the competition. There are teams that are playing for things and we go in to every game looking to win. We must keep the momentum going in every competition and we must remain competitive. I'm excited by the chance of winning LaLiga and the Champions League. And also the Copa del Rey and the Club World Cup. I like them all and we should aspire to winning everything. We’re alive in every competition."
Prev.
Real Madrid are likely to make a raft of changes for this one having already secured their place in the last 16, though manager Santiago Solari has insisted his side will be playing to win.
Prev.
Hello and welcome! The Champions League Group Stage comes to an end this evening, but there's not an awful lot at stake in this one with Real Madrid having already sewn up top spot in Group G. CSKA need to better Viktoria Plzen's result against Roma if they're to secure a place in the Europa League.
