EVERTON 0-1 CRYSTAL PALACE

Gary Maiden reports from Goodison Park: "Half-time here at Goodison and Crystal Palace hold a well-deserved lead through yet another Jason Puncheon strike. The away support have been enjoying themselves, chanting ‘he scores every week’, and they are not far wrong. Yannick Bolasie has enjoyed a brilliant first half and can count himself highly unlucky not to have doubled his side's lead after striking the post minutes later. Everton will need to vastly improve in the second half if they are to keep their Champions League hunt on track. A huge 45 minutes approaching for both sides."

BARCELONA 0-0 REAL MADRID

More from Ben Hayward at Mestalla: "Gareth Bale is playing in the first final of his career and he starts out on the left, in the Ronaldo role. Big shoes to fill and a lot to live up to for the Welshman. Angel Di Maria, meanwhile, is on the right. For Barcelona, Lionel Messi is back in the middle where he's happiest, with Neymar out on the right. That's not the Brazilian's best position, so it will be interesting to see how it works out."

BARCELONA 0-0 REAL MADRID

Ben Hayward reports from the Mestalla: "Great atmosphere at Mestalla now. Not the noisiest sets of fans in Spain these two, but they always save their voices for the Clasico. There is no bigger game than this - whatever the competition..."

KICK-OFF

It ain’t about how hard you hit, Leo, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Bit of motivation for little Leo there. He's not been in the greatest of form lately. Can he turn it around? Follow LIVE play-by-play coverage below!

EVERTON 0-1 CRYSTAL PALACE

More from Gary Maiden at Goodison Park: "A smart save from Julian Speroni at his near post has just prevented Romelu Lukaku from levelling the game. Ross Barkley breaks into the area and cuts the ball back from the byline. Lukaku does well to react first and his snap shot looked like it may creep in at the near post, only for Speroni to acrobatically tip it wide."

MANCHESTER CITY 1-0 SUNDERLAND

Tom Maston reports from the Etihad Stadium: "Manchester City are slightly fortunate to still have their starting XI still on the pitch. First Sergio Aguero is caught on his ankle by a very poor Wes Brown tackle. The defender gets away without even conceding a free-kick, though on another day he may have been sent off. Soon after Pablo Zabaleta receives lengthy treatment after coming off worst in a 50-50 challenge with Marcos Alonso, but seems to have recovered. Despite their big squad, Manuel Pellegrini could do without more injuries to his key players."

EVERTON 0-1 CRYSTAL PALACE

Gary Maiden reports from Goodison Park: "So very nearly 2-0 to Palace here at Everton - and what a strike it was! Yannick Bolasie has given the Everton defence a torrid time here and strikes the post with a fierce drive from 20 yards with Tim Howard well beaten. Cameron Jerome fails to convert the rebound with the goal at his mercy. Moments earlier, Kevin Mirallas blazed over the bar from a tight angle with the Toffees’ best chance of the game. Palace are good value for their lead."

BARCELONA v REAL MADRID

Ajax coach Frank de Boer is doing a spot of punditry for Sport 1 ahead of the Copa del Rey Clasico. He's responded to Johan Cruyff's claim that Barcelona MUST take Pep Guardiola back, and also spoke about one day wanting to manage the Catalans.

"Pep back to Barca would be a good move, but I don't think it's a possibility," he said. "Barcelona could want this, but Pep has just started at Bayern and is far from already over there. He wants to achieve a lot more goals."

On managing Barcelona, he said: "I'm happy at Ajax, but if at one point in my career the possibility comes, I would consider it. But for now I have enough goals at Ajax."

EVERTON 0-1 CRYSTAL PALACE

Gary Maiden reports from Goodison Park: "If there is a team in this division that you don’t want to concede an early goal to, it is Crystal Palace. Tony Pulis is an expert at stifling opponents and that is exactly what the Eagles will be looking to do here. Having said that, it is actually the away side who are looking the more likely to add to their lead, with the home fans growing increasingly frustrated with their side."

STAT ATTACK

Bayern Munich have only been knocked out of the DFB-Pokal once in their last 30 home ties. That exit came in a 1-0 defeat to Schalke at the semi-final stage three years ago. And it ain't happening today either, folks.

EVERTON 0-1 CRYSTAL PALACE

GOAL: Against the run of play, Crystal Palace have taken a shock lead through the in-form Jason Puncheon. Yannick Bolasie is afforded far too much room down the right-hand side and cuts the ball across goal. Tim Howard fails to hold onto it and his fumble falls to Marouane Chamakh. He then lays the ball to Puncheon who drills into the bottom left corner. A real quality finish once again.

GLANCE AROUND THE GLOBE

Look away now, Manchester United fans. Toni Kroos, fresh from signing a new deal, adds a second for Bayern Munich against Kaiserslauten after some more lovely stuff from Arjen Robben. Meanwhile, it's Guingamp 0-0 Monaco in the semi-final of the Coupe de France.

All the scores in one place!

MANCHESTER CITY 1-0 SUNDERLAND

More from Tom Maston at the Etihad Stadium: "Sunderland again miss a gilt-edged chance as an Adam Johnson ball into the box is missed by Martin Demichelis, and Fabio Borini has all the time in the world to pick his spot. Fortunately for the home side he can only slide his finish wide of the post. Gus Poyet isn't happy down on the touchline. His side should really be level by now."

EVERTON 0-0 CRYSTAL PALACE

Gary Maiden reports from Goodison Park: "Better from Everton. An incisive break down the left sees Leighton Baines pick out Aiden McGeady who forces his way into the Palace half. His left-footed effort from distance is always rising and fizzles harmlessly over the bar. Gerard Deloufeu continues to enjoy too much room on the right and Palace will want to address that sooner rather than later."

MANCHESTER CITY 1-0 SUNDERLAND

Tom Maston reports from the Etihad Stadium: "John O'Shea should have had two already as the chances keep coming at both ends. It is Sebastian Larsson's corner that the Sunderland captain gets on the end of this time, but his powerful header is just too high and flicks the top of the net as it goes over the top. Plenty of encouragement for the Black Cats from set-pieces."

GLANCE AROUND THE GLOBE

Pep's boys are on their way to the DFB-Pokal final as Arjen Robben jinks his way past a couple of Kaiserslauten players and clips the ball onto the bonce of Bastian Schweinsteiger, who nods home the opener for Bayern Munich. Remember, DORTMUND await in the final. Scary times.

MANCHESTER CITY 1-0 SUNDERLAND

Tom Maston reports from the Etihad Stadium: "Manchester City haven't left first gear yet, but they are pulling Sunderland apart when they attack. This time Sergio Aguero's swerving effort is just about parried by Vito Mannone, but after Pablo Zabaleta nods into Fernandinho's path from the rebound, the midfielder fires over when he really should hit the target. Lucky escape for the visitors."
