UEFA Champions League
UEFA Europa League
UEFA Conference League Qualifiers


That's all for today, thanks for tuning into live coverage of Atletico Madrid v Levante. Goodbye.
Levante move up to eighth in La Liga now, just five points shy from a European qualification position. Levante will host Athletic Bilbao next Friday. Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid remain top but fail to capitalise on the chance to extend their lead over rivals Real Madrid. Simeone's side now turn their attentions to the Champions League as they face Chelsea next week. 
What a performance from Levante. A thoroughly deserved win for the away side as goals from Morales and de Frutos sealed all three points in a shock win in Madrid. Atletico never got going and key players such as Joao Felix, Suarez and Llorente all under performed. A fantastic team performance from Lopez's side and a huge win for them as they continue their rise up the table.
90' + 5' FULL TIME: Atletico Madrid 0-2 Levante
Jorge de Frutos
90' + 5' GOALLLL! THAT SEALS A BRILLIANT WIN FOR LEVANTE! De Frutos breaks on the counter as Oblak came forward for a late corner and fires a shot from the halfway line into the empty net! 
90' + 3' WHAT A SAVE! Cardenas makes a top save down to his right from Lemar's volleyed effort. That was brilliant from the young goalkeeper who surely deserves man of the match.
Yellow Card
90' + 1' Rober is booked for wasting time. There will be five added minutes to play.
89' AMAZING BLOCK! Rober does so well to slide in and tackle Dembele as the striker looked set to equalise for the hosts! That may have just won them this game.
88' Hermoso makes a vital tackle and dispossesses Vukcevic in the box before driving forward into midfield and losing the ball again.
85' Malsa makes a silly mistake by fouling Joao Felix on the edge of the box. Suarez will be fancying his chances again here.
83' One of Levante's coaching staff has been booked for his behaviour on the touchline.
82' Joao Felix is furious with the referee after he awards a freekick to Levante for a foul on Malsa.
N. Vukčević
80' Morales makes way for Vukcevic after a brilliant performance. His goal is still the difference as we enter the final 10 minutes.
78' Suarez tries to find Dembele in the area but his chipped pass bounces through to Cardenas and Levante survive again.
75' Just 15 minutes left in this match, Levante are defending so well and denying Atletico any space in and around the penalty box. Lemar has just tried a shot from distance but it sails wide and is comfortable for Cardenas.
M. Dembélé
74' Koke is replaced by Dembele as Simeone sends on the Frenchman in the hope he can grab an equaliser.
71' Tono is replaced by Clerc. Levante have one more substitution left to make.
71' Coke is replaced by Son for Levante.
Yellow Card
70' Koke is booked too for arguing with the referee.
T. Lemar
Yellow Card
69' Lemar picks up the first booking of the game for Atletico for pulling Bardhi's shirt.
Dani Cárdenas
Yellow Card
69' Cardenas is booked for time wasting as Lopez looks to make another couple of substitutions as we enter the final 20 minutes.
67' Cardenas is having a great game in goal for Levante in just his second appearance this season. It looked like a big risk starting him before the game but Lopez is being rewarded for his faith in the youngster so far.
64' WHAT A SAVE! Cardenas makes a brilliant save with his foot to deny Joao Felix from close range. Levante are doing everything in their power to keep the score at 1-0.
Dani Gómez
Sergio León
62' Leon is replaced by Gomez for Levante as they look to hold onto their lead.
Jorge de Frutos
62' Rochina is replaced by de Frutos as Lopez makes a two changes.
Ricard Sánchez
Á. Correa
61' Correa is replaced by Sanchez as Simeone makes a double substitution.
L. Torreira
G. Kondogbia
61' Kondogbia is replaced by Torreira as Simeone switches things up in midfield.
60' NO GOAL! Atletico have the ball in the back of the Levante net but the referee awards a foul against Suarez for pushing Vezo in the back on the goal line! Atletico are pressing for an equaliser.
58' OFF THE POST! Suarez crashes the freekick off the post after beating Cardenas! So close from the leading scorer in La Liga.
57' Kondogbia wins a free kick after he was pushed in the back by Leon. Suarez is stood over the ball and it's well within his range.
T. Lemar
J. Giménez
54' Gimenez is replaced by Lemar as the defender is unable to continue. It looks as though he picked up a knock on his ankle. Simeone opts to go for a more attacking change in the hope to get a goal back sooner rather than later. Atletico have now switched to four at the back.
52' Lodi gets down the left again and this time plays it back to Suarez who tries to chip Cardenas but Vezo is there to clear the ball behind for yet another corner.
50' Suarez drops deep and plays in Lodi but his shot is deflected behind for a corner kick. Joao Felix looked like the clear option to pass to there as he drifted into the box late.
48' Kondogbia tries a shot from distance but he's off balance and his effort flies high and wide of the target. Suarez wasn't best pleased that the midfielder took the shot on there.
46' The second half is underway.
Atletico will remain top if this result is the same at full time, however they will miss out on extending their lead above rivals Real Madrid. Meanwhile, Levante will move up to eigth as they continue their hunt in reaching a European qualification place.
Atletico trail at the break to Levante who have looked comfortable in the first half and have a deserved 1-0 lead. Morales was the man who broke the deadlock on the half hour mark after his shot deflected off Hermoso and Felipe, before spinning up and over Oblak who had already dived to his right. Atletico need to freshen things up if they're to get back into this game.
45' HALF TIME: Atletico Madrid 0-1 Levante
43' This is the sixth time in the last nine La Liga fixtures that Atletico have conceded first. A club record under Simeone who is renowned for setting his teams up to be defensively solid.
41' Levante look so comfortable in possession today. Simeone will be absolutely furious with his team's performance so far, especially from Correa and Kondogbia who have been really poor. You'd expect there to be changes at half time for the home side because something needs to change if they're to get back into this game.
39' What a waste of a chance that is from Rochina! All he had to do was slide the ball through for Morales but he gets the pass all wrong and Oblak comes out to collect. That was a great chance to make it 2-0 before the break.
38' Cardenas does brilliantly to collect the ball after a powerful header from Gimenez had the goalkeeper scrambling across his line.
Rúben Vezo
Yellow Card
36' Vezo picks up the first booking of the match after a late tackle on Joao Felix. Vezo will miss the next match for Levante after picking up his fifth booking for the season.
34' UNLUCKY! Llorente drills a cross low into the box and Vezo's clearance hits Duarte and the ball spins behind for a corner!
31' It's really poor defending by Atletico. Rochina is played through in behind Llorente, his cross is cleared and Kondogbia fails to deal with the danger before the ball falls to Morales who spins and shoots. It's an unlucky deflection off of Felipe that left Oblak unsighted and the hosts find themselves 1-0 down.
Own Goal
30' GOALLLL! Levante take a shock lead through Morales! The striker's deflected shot beats Oblak in goal who had committed to diving to his right and the ball spins over him into the net!
29' Lodi drives forward and wins a freekick after a late tackle from Coke sent the Brazillian tumbling to the floor.
27' Levante are piling on the pressure midway through the first half. Kondogbia and Koke are struggling to pick up Bardhi and Malsa in midfield. 
25' It looks as though Atletico are really missing Kieran Trippier on the right side. His ability to create chances from set pieces and in spaces on the right flank has unbalanced this side quite dramatically.
22' Levante build a nice attack but it's halted by Felipe. That was a vital block from the Brazillian as Morales danced his way around Kondogbia and Gimenez.
20' Atletico seemed to have settled down now and are beginning to create a few more dangerous chances against a stern Levante defence.
18' Suarez clips a ball into the box towards Lodi but Coke is there to clear behind for another Atletico corner.
15' Suarez tries his luck from a tight angle and Cardenas has to settle for conceding a corner.
13' Atletico have conceded 10 goals in their last nine La Liga matches, after having only conceded four goals before the turn of the year.
11' Levante are having some joy against Llorente already. There is a lot of space to exploit between Llorente and Felipe which will need to be addressed by Simeone if the visitors continue to threaten.
9' CLOSE! Morales breaks on the counter attack in behind Atletico's defence but he drags his shot wide of the post! Levante almost take a shock lead in Madrid!
8' Llorente drives down the right and drills a cross into the box but Rober is there to clear it away for a corner.
6' Malsa has actually started the game in midfield today after Postigo was withdrawn before kick off with a calf strain. Rober has slotted into the defence in Postigo's place.
4' Llorente is playing wide on the right for the home side, acting as a wing back today when he is usually operating as a central midfielder or second striker. It will be interesting to see how he copes today.
2' An early attack from the hosts is cleared well by Duarte. Lodi was in behind down the left and tried to find Suarez who was lurking on the penalty spot.
1' KICK OFF: We're underway.
