94'
Shakhtar sub: Vyunnik on for Marcos.

Valverde has a shot from outside the box and the keeper lets it through his legs. Vinicius was standing right in front of the keeper so it is ruled out for offside.

60'
VINI!!!!!!
59'
Real Madrid sub: Vinicius on for Jovic.
56'
Could have been 1-4. Great work from the Shakhtar player down the left, he crosses to Tete in the box but he fires wide.

43'
This is easy for the visitors. Tete is played through, he back-heels it to Solomon and he slots it in the net. Yes that's correct, 3-0!!!!!

40'
I wouldn't be surprised to see Benzema come on at half-time.

34'
Wow. Tete's shot is deflected of Militao and saved by Courtois, but the rebound is turned into his own net by Varane. 0-2!!!

31'
The cross comes in and Jovic shoulders it straight at the keeper. He should have done better.

22'
Real Madrid have only won 1 home Champions League tie in their last six. That was 3-0 against Galatasaray.
21'
Shakhtar are doing well so far. They should be 1-0 up though.

Marlos is played through but Courtois makes a good save with his legs. Should have been 0-1.

Asensio has a drilling shot from a tight angle that the keeper savs with his feet.
