    • 90'+2 FT Celta Vigo 1-3 Atletico Madrid.
    • 90' Chance for 4-1! Turan bursts into the box but can only strike his shot against the post.
    • 88' Surely that's put the game beyond Celta now.
    • 86' GOAL! Falcao makes it 3-1! Celta fail to clear and the ball falls to Falcao in the box, and the striker fires into the roof of the net from 10 yards.
    • 85' Can Celta Vigo get another one back before the end?
    • 83' GOAL! Celta Vigo have a goal back! De Lucas goes for goal from distance and it's parried away by Courtois, but the keeper makes a howler on the rebound, with Augusto Fernandez's shots quirming under his body.
    • 81' Celta running out of ideas now.
    • 80' Long ball forward almost finds De Lucas, but Courtois is lighning fast off his line to gather.
    • 78' Augusto Fernandez fires a wicked ball in from the right, but it just evades everyone.
    • 77' Celta sub: De Lucas on, Bermejo off.
    • 75' Atletico sub: Rodriguez on, Koke off.
    • 74' Falcao goes for a shot from the halfway line! But it drifts well wide. Koke, who had made a brilliant run, wasn't happy with that.
    • 72' Celta have looked rather impotent tonight. Just haven't had an attacking threat to harm Atletico.
    • 70' Very good night's work for Costa, who has run the show for Atletico tonight.
    • 69' Atletico sub: Turan on, Costa off.
    • 67' GOAL! Juanfran makes it 2-0! Costa lays the ball off on the edge of the box and Juanfran lets fly, and his deflected effort creeps past the helpless Varas.
    • 66' Celta sub: Bermejo on, Otto off
    • 64' Costa runs at the Celta defence again and tries to cross for Falcao, but his cross is blocked and he has to settle for a cormer.
    • 62' Celta are applying some pressure here. Good ball in from the right finds Insa at the far post, but he completely miscues his shot.
    • 60' Atletico sub Tiago is cautioned for a foul. The referee has blown up for everything today.
    • 58' Brilliant through ball by Falcao for Costa, who is forced to go it alone and fires his low shot into Varas's arms.
    • 56' Gabi sees yellow for kicking he ball away.
    • 54' Celta sub: Orellana on, Lopez off.
    • 52' So close to 2-0! Costa fires in a low cross from the right and Falcao almost gets a toe on the ball, but it's steered wide for a corner.
    • 50' Celta have reacted well to going behind. They are not giving up easily here.
    • 48' GOAL! Diego Costa scores for Atletico! Koke's corner is flicked on by Miranda and Costa heads in at the far post! First blood to the visitors.
    • 46' We are back underway.
    • 45'+1 HT Celta Vigo 0-0 Atletico Madrid.
    • 45' Glimpse for Aspas, who momentarily seems to be through, but the ball doesn't fall for him and the Atletico defence has time to recover.
    • 44' Yellow for Celta's Lago, who commits a rugby style tackle on Diego Costa. Fifth of the game.
    • 42' Celta chance as Insa cuts in from the right, but his low shot is dragged slightly and Courtois takes no chances by turning around his near post.
    • 40' Falcao is offside as he fires just over, but Atletico's chances are fewer and further between now. Celta are on top here.
    • 38' Oubina's shot charged down by Gabi in the six yard. Atletico's defending very suspect so far.
    • 36' Alex Lopez is in the wars a little here. Miranda catches him on the edge of the box, and he fires the resulting free-kick into the wall from 25 yards.
    • 34' Godin is the fourth man in the book for another foul on Lopez. The referee is a little card happy here.
    • 32' Costa flicks Koke's free-kick from the left just wide as he darted to the near post. Chance.
    • 30' Big missed chance for Atletico! Falcao chases down a ball on the right and tees up Adrian, who completely miscues from 10 yards. Had to hit the target.
    • 28' Castro gets a yellow for a cynical challenge on Falcao.
    • 26' Now Mario Suarez is in the book for a rash challenge on Alex Lopez.
    • 24' Alex Lopez is booked for a foul on Koke, who was leading the Atletico counter-attack.
    • 22' Falcao lurking at the far post, but he can't get his head on the end of the cross from the left.
    • 20' Aspas picks out Krohn-Dehli on the left, but the Dane can't quite keep the ball in play.
    • 18' Celta are enjoying a good spell now after their slow start.
    • 16' Krohn-Dehli goes for goal from 25 yards and the shot is a powerful one that almost knocks Courtois off his feet, but the keeper makes a one-handed save to keep it out.
    • 14' Long ball finds Fernandez on the right wing, but he is penalised for handling.
    • 12' Aspas appears to be held back as he chases a through ball, but replays show he went down easily.
    • 10' Falcao gets on the end of Luis's cross but can only fire wide.
    • 8' Atletico are utterly dominating this contest so far. Celta unable to even string three or four passes together.
    • 6' Koke fires a free-kick in from the left but it fails to clear the first man.
