EVERTON 1-2 CRYSTAL PALACE

Gary Maiden reports from Goodison Park: "Kevin Mirallas should really pull his side level with a half-volley at the back post. Leighton Baines whips the ball across the face of goal and the Belgian is first to the cross. He fails to keep his effort down and the ball flies over the bar. Can Palace hold out?"

BARCELONA 0-1 REAL MADRID

Opportunity wasted for Real Madrid. They counterattack at pace as Karim Benzema drives down the right-hand side, but the Frenchman's pass inside to the unmarked Gareth Bale just lacks some pace which allows Marc Batra to come in and make the important challenge.

STAT ATTACK

Steven Naismith has scored three goals in his last four games for Everton, with two of those goals coming from the bench. He now has nine for the season. HASHTAGSUPERSUB

EVERTON 1-2 CRYSTAL PALACE

GOAL: Steven Naismith has continued his purple patch in front of goal and in doing so may well have kept Everton’s Champions League dreams alive. Introduced at half-time, the Scot pounces on a Leighton Baines header across the face of goal after some neat footwork from Kevin Mirallas out on the right to give Everton a lifeline. Half an hour left to play, game back on.

Arsenal will remain ahead of Everton in the race for fourth if Crystal Palace win at Goodison Park - and don't the Gooners just know it!

@mostanley29: "@GoalUK Crystal keep it up you can do it"

@Rotankwot: "Beware Palace, they are a bogey team destroying dreams"

MANCHESTER CITY 1-0 SUNDERLAND

Tom Maston reports from the Etihad Stadium: "Sergio Aguero has managed 56 minutes on his return to the starting XI, but he has now been replaced by Steven Jovetic. The Argentine looked bright and could still have a big say on the destination of the title this season. Manchester City have begun the second half in control of possession but have been uncharacteristically wasteful in the final third."

BARCELONA 0-1 REAL MADRID

Ben Hayward reports from Mestalla: "Pinto (at 38 years and 159 days) is the oldest player to turn out in a Copa del Rey final - and also the oldest to represent Barcelona. Questions will be asked about his role in the goal, but the Cadiz-born goalkeeper would probably have been playing today anyway, even if Victor Valdes had been available. It's 'his' competiton and his fourth final with Barca."

EVERTON 0-2 CRYSTAL PALACE

Gary Maiden reports from Goodison Park: "A positive response from Everton in the shape of Aiden McGeady. The winger cuts in on the left-hand side and fires at goal from 25 yards out. His shot has the beating of Julian Speroni but travels wide of the far post."

STAT ATTACK

If Crystal Palace can hold on against Everton, that'll be 36 points from 23 league games under Tony Pulis. They only had four points from 11 matches before he took over. I swear I'm not getting caught up in #Pulismania, but he has gotta be Manager of the Year, hasn't he?

EVERTON 0-2 CRYSTAL PALACE

GOAL: They’ve started the second half brightly, and it has paid dividends with Scott Dann doubling Palace’s lead. That man Yannick Bolasie floats in an inviting corner and Dann finds himself unmarked with John Stones guilty of ball watching. His header gives Tim Howard little chance and Everton are sinking without a trace here.

GLANCE AROUND THE GLOBE

It's half-time in France, where Dimitar Berbatov has equalised for Monaco in their Coupe de France semi-final with Guingamp, while Bayern Munich have made it 3-0 against Kaiserslauten through a Thomas Muller penalty......but as I type the second-tier side pull one back to make it 3-1. Goals, and plenty of 'em.

Can Bayern hold on? Find out here!

STAT ATTACK

Lionel Messi is the first Barcelona player who has featured in 25 consecutive Clasicos. He has been in every single one since December 23, 2007 - when Barca lost 1-0 at Camp Nou. STAT.

20:42 BST

16/04/2014

BARCELONA 0-1 REAL MADRID

GOAL: Who needs Cristiano Ronaldo??? A brilliant counter-attack from Madrid. Angel Di Maria races clear of the Barcelona defence to latch on to a reverse pass from Karim Benzena, and keeps his composure to fire into the bottom right-hand corner. Pinto, though, should have done A LOT better. He does get an outstretched hand to it but really should have held on.

GOOOOOOOOOOL!! Barcelona 0 Real Madrid 1 (Di Maria)

MANCHESTER CITY 1-0 SUNDERLAND

Tom Maston reports from the Etihad Stadium: "After a very fast start from both sides the game has settled down somewhat, and though Manchester City lead, Sunderland are right in this as they look to break down a creaky home defence. John O'Shea (twice) and Fabio Borini should have pulled the Black Cats level after Fernandinho's very early goal, and Gus Poyet will be hopeful his side can continue to create chances in the second period. City have been slow in getting the ball forward to Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo and could see their chances of winning the Premier League totally evaporate tonight if they're not careful."
