    Atletico are definetly trying to see the game out , playing a short passing game along their defence to try and waste some time.
  • 81'
    Atletico and Aguero did not give Real the ball back after the striker was down , and as a result some bottles have been thrown at him down at the corner flag but luckily they were off target.
  • 79'
    Sergio Aguero is down with an injury after a tackle from behind from Ramos. The Argentinian has been on the end of alot of hard tackles from the Real Madrid players , who have been lucky not to receive bookings.
  • 78'
    SubstitutionDiego Forlán Fran Mérida

    Fran Merida has come on to replace Diego Forlan. This may be a sign that Quique Sánchez Flores is happy with a 2-1 defeat and is looking to see the game out.
  • 75'
    Real are not committing as much men forward at the moment. Khedira and Alonso are sitting much more deep and look happy to let Ronaldo and co try and get the third goal.
  • 73'
    Yellow Card Cristiano Ronaldo
  • 73'
    Sergio Aguero has had some joy down the right hand side against Sergio Ramos. The Argentinian's pace and strength has caused some trouble but he needs some support to create some real chances !
  • 71'
    Cristiano Ronaldo with an terrible tackle on Ujfalusi . The Real player is booked but it looked like he should have been sent off !
  • 68'
    Real have yet to get Kaka into the game , with Ronaldo playing centrally they have lost some of the high tempo shown down the left hand side by the Portuguese and Marcelo.
  • 66'
    Ronaldo goes level with Lionel Messi on 31 goals for the season.

    Both sides lack some of the intensity that they showed in the first half.
  • 56'
    SubstitutionKarim Benzema Kaká
  • 55'
    Kaka is brought on to replace the ineffective Karim Benzema for the last 35 minutes of the game. It is likely that we will see Ronaldo move up front as the lone striker and Mesut Ozil going out to the left hand side.
  • 53'
    First chance of the second half for Atletico as Kun Aguero gets in to the box and blasts a shot that is saved by Casillas. The Real captain was very lucky that the ball evaded Diego Forlan.

  • 50'
    SubstitutionRaúl García Mario Suárez
  • 49'
    An early tactical switch from Atletico as Mario Suarez replaces Raul Garcia. The energetic Suarez will hopefully add more legs to the Atletico engine room.
