    NOTHING, BECAUSE ATLETICO HAVE A PENALTY!!! Reyes draws a foul from Mikel Gonzalez, and the referee points to the spot!!

    SubstitutionDiego Forlán Paulo Assunçao
  • 90'
    A corner in the closing moments. What can Sociedad produce?
  • 89'
    It's one way traffic, but it may be too little too late for the home side. Assuncao comes on to eat up valuable seconds as Flores' side home in on victory. 4 additional minutes.
  • 87'
    Sociedad will go all out for an equaliser they never thought they'd have to chase. Zurutuza attempts a spectacular overhead kick, but his effort goes wide. Atleti are hanging on.

    GoalDiego Rivas
  • 85'
    GOOOALLLL!!!!! SOCIEDAD HAVE PULLED ONE BACK!!! What an end to this match. Prieto sets up Rivas at the edge of the area, who angles his shot against the post and into the net. A grandstand finish here!!! 3-2!!
  • 84'
    SubstitutionSergio Agüero Diego Costa
  • 84'
    SubstitutionMikel Aranburu Eizagirre Jeffrey Sarpong
  • 84'
    What a strange turn of events here. This scoreline didn't look likely at half-time, by any stretch of the imagination, but all credit to Forlan and Aguero, who have shown their class as the match has progressed.
  • 82'
    GoalSergio Agüero
  • 82'
    GOOOALLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3-1 TO ATLETICO!!! Forlan and Aguero combine again, with Forlan's effort saved by Bravo, but it breaks to the Argentine, who takes a touch and fires the ball into the net. What a turnaround here!!!
  • 80'
    AssistTomas Ujfalusi
  • 80'
    GoalSergio Agüero
  • 79'
    A winner looked to be in the offing, and Atleti have been far better in the second half. Their strikers have won the battle this evening, by the looks of things.
  • 78'
    Yellow CardMarkel Bergara
  • 78'
    GOALLLLL!!!!!!!! ATLETICO MADRID COULD HAVE STOLEN IT!!!! A great move sees Ujfalusi rolls the ball perfectly across the area, and Sergio Aguero is on hand to slip the ball into the net. 2-1 to the visitors!!!
  • 77'
    SubstitutionJoseba Llorente Raúl Tamudo
  • 76'
    SubstitutionMario Suárez Raúl García
  • 75'
    Two penalty claims involving Carlos Martinez, firstly his cross is blocked as he screams for handball, then falls to the floor in the area as a corner is whipped in. The referee is not interested in either.
  • 73'
    Yellow CardJon Ansotegui
  • 73'
    Sociedad looking to respond now, and striker Raul Tamudo has been introduced into the action as they search for a winning goal.
  • 71'
    AssistSergio Agüero
  • 71'
    GoalDiego Forlán
  • 71'
    That goal was attacking on the break at its finest, with Aguero showing superb pace to escape the Sociedad defence and Forlan show composure to finish. They will look to go on and win from this situation!!
  • 69'
    GOOOALLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DIEGO FORLAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who said nothing was working for him? A great counter attack sees Aguero pull wide, and cut the ball back to his strike partner, who finishes the job!! 1-1!!
  • 68'
    Yellow CardMario Suárez
  • 66'
    A slight stoppage at the moment as Prieto gets caught by an elbow from Suarez. The referee brandishes a yellow card.
  • 64'
    SubstitutionAntoine Griezmann Markel Bergara
  • 64'
    Wonderful play from Xabi Prieto. He exchanged passes beautifully with Griezmann, but when presented with a shooting opportunity, can only blaze his effort wide. Great build up, though.
  • 62'
    Aguero shoots from the edge of the area, but the effort is hopeless, as it bobbles up before he strikes it and it flies into the stand.
  • 60'
    HUUUYYY!!! Another effort whizzes wide, this time from Simao, who attempted to curl for the far corner but just got his angles slightly wrong.
  • 58'
    Another pass goes astray from the boot of Diego Forlan, and things just aren't working for him tonight. Diego Costa is warming up, and the Brazilian is likely to appear soon.
  • 56'
    Yellow CardMikel Aranburu Eizagirre
  • 56'
    Llorente gets in behind Atletico again, but is correctly flagged offside. A second goal for the hosts at this stage would kill the match.
  • 54'
    The game is beginning to stretch slightly now, and that might suit Atleti, who have players who can attack with pace when given the space to do so.
  • 52'
    Forlan fires in another effort on goal, but this one is more dangerous, just dipping wide of the target at the last moment with Bravo scrambling.
  • 49'
    HUUUYYYY!! The lightning Griezmann sprints in on goal, leaving Ujfalusi in his wake, but De Gea does well to beat away his stinging shot.
  • 48'
    Quique Sanchez Flores' side will need to produce more in this half if they are to leave here with any kind of result, because their performance to this point is getting what it deserves - nothing.
  • 46'
    We are back underway in San Sebastian. Let's see if Atleti can get back into the match.
  • 45'
    Indeed it is. Real Sociedad lead at the break thanks to Llorente's goal. Join us again in 15 minutes for the second half!
  • 45'
    Forlan fires in a long range effort that whizzes wide of the target, and that could be the last action of the half.
  • 43'
    HUUUUYYY!!!! Tiago sends a curler towards the corner of the net, but Bravo at full stretch tips the ball around the post. Good save from the Chilean there.
  • 41'
    A better ball in this tiem from Simao finds Mario Suarez in space in the box, but his header goes over from just six yards out. A decent opportunity.
  • 39'
    Another dreadful ball into the area from Forlan, caught easily by Bravo. Not the Uruguayan's evening so far at all.
  • 37'
    Forlan finds space on the left of the area, but feebly flips his cross straight into the arms of Bravo, frustrating Aguero who had made room in the centre.
  • 35'
    HUUUUYYY!!! Great play from Aguero, cutting inside from the wing and curling a low shot that goes inches wide of Bravo's post. A good spell at the moment for the visitors.
  • 33'
    A quick counter attack from Atletico, with Forlan driving forward, but Reyes makes the wrong decision, opting to shoot instead of play in Aguero, who had pulled into space.
  • 31'
    Forlan is now looking to drop deeper in order to try and get the ball, because the Ballon d'Or candidate has barely touched the ball so far.
  • 29'
    A few little hints that Atletico may be edging back into this match. Aguero attempts to find space in the area, but Sociedad stay strong and clear the danger.
  • 26'
    Griezmann fires in a free kick, from a considerable distance, and the effort never looked close to threatening the goal.
  • 24'
    First real glimpse of goal for Atleti. Ujfalusi gets in at the near post to flick a header goalwards, but his effort is well saved by Bravo.
  • 22'
    Llorente looked in a position to grab his second, but was flagged offside. It was a borderline decision, but De Gea made a save with his legs in any case.
  • 20'
    There seems to be some discontent among the Atleti players at the moment, and they look frustrated at being behind. They need to regroup or else this game could be out of their reach.
  • 18'
    HUUUUYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!! Another great ball into the box finds Llorente at the back post, but as he slid in, he somehow put his effort wide of the target. He kicked the post in frustration.
  • 16'
    Sociedad the better side now, showing some lovely one-touch passing and interplay. Llorente almost gets in again, but De Gea is vigilant to the danger.
  • 14'
    After starting the match so well, Atleti find themselves behind, and in all honesty the defending was very poor. Ujfalusi was caught wrong side, while Perea allowed Griezmann too much room to cross.
  • 12'
    Yellow CardTomas Ujfalusi
  • 12'
    GoalJoseba Llorente
  • 12'
    GOOOALLLL!!!!!!!!!!! REAL SOCIEDAD!!!! Griezmann whipped in a teasing cross, and Llorente shrugged off the challenge of Ujfalusi to poke the ball into the corner!!! It may have flicked off the boot of the Czech, but the striker is sure to claim it! 1-0!!
  • 11'
    Great through pass from Reyes sends Aguero clear but Claudio Bravo rushed from his line to shepherd him to safety. Great goalkeeping.
  • 9'
    Atleti look to have taken confidence from their 3-0 win over Osasuna last weekend, and are playing some nice football. Still, no chances as of yet.
  • 7'
    Sociedad have won four of their five home games so far this season, with their only defeat arriving at the hands of Real Madrid, whereas Atleti have found picking up points on the road difficult to achieve.
  • 5'
    Atleti definitely the better side in the opening exchanges, but have been unable to fashion a clear scoring opportunity as of yet.
  • 3'
    Los Colchoneros have failed to win in their last six visits to San Sebastian, but have started well here. Reyes fires a speculative shot wide of the target.
  • 1'
    We are underway at the Anoeta. Let's hope for an exciting encounter!!
  • And Atletico Madrid: De Gea, Ujfalusi, Perea, Godin, Antonio López, Mario Suarez, James, Reyes, Simao, Aguero and Forlan.
  • Ok, now the teams. Firstly, we have the home side who line up: Bravo, Carlos Martinez, Ansotegi, Mikel González, De la Bella, Rivas, Aranburu, Xabi Prieto, Zurutuza, Griezmann and Llorente.
  • Good evening and welcome to's live coverage of Real Sociedad versus Atletico Madrid from San Sebastian! This match showcases some of the best striking talent in Spain, with Aguero and Forlan going up against Joseba Llorente and the promising Antoine Griezmann!
