Commentary

That's all for now though, goodbye!
The result means that Lokomotiv remain in third place - just two points behind today's opponents, Atletico.  
Lokomotiv cling on for a point after a spirited display against Atletico. The away side started brightly and took the lead when Gimenez flicked Herrera's cross beyond Guilherme. However, the hosts responded well and forced an equaliser when Miranchuk converted a penalty after a handball from Herrera. From there, Atletico completely dominated the second-half, but a combination of wastefulness in front of goal and stout defending ensured that Lokomotiv held on to secure a 1-1 draw.  
90' + 5' FULL TIME: Lokomotiv Moscow 1-1 Atletico Madrid
90' + 4' Yet another chance for Atletico! Joao Felix jinks towards the edge of the area, before slipping it through to Suarez who's just beaten to it by Guilherme!
90' + 3' Lokomotiv continue to battle for every second ball as they try and hold Atletico off.
90' + 2' Trippier swings in another inviting cross for Joao Felix but Rajkovic intervenes brilliantly to clear it.
90' + 1' Four minutes of stoppage time are added on.
D. Rybchinskiy
A. Miranchuk
89' Miranchuk makes way for Rybchinskiy after a brilliant display capped off with a goal.
88' Zhivoglyadov energetically presses up the pitch to force Lodi into going all the way back to Oblak, displaying the sort of spirit that's served Lokomotiv so well today.
86' Chance for Atletico! Suarez clips in an inch-perfect cross for Lodi and the defender hits a sharp, first-time volley across goal that drifts just wide of the far post!
84' Trippier whips another free-kick into the box, but after a frenetic scramble in the area, Lokomotiv clear.
82' Atletico are continuing to throw everything at Lokomotiv but the hosts are still holding firm.  
80' Joao Felix almost pounces on a loose ball in the area after a cross from Lemar, but Cirqueira swings a leg from the floor and fortunately manages to divert it away from the attacker.  
L. Torreira
Vitolo
78' Vitolo makes way for Torreira after suffering that injury.
77' Vitolo has pulled up with a lower leg injury and it looks as though he won't be able to continue.
76' Given Atletico's dominance, a goal there for Lokomotiv would have come against the run of play. Nevertheless, the away side will have to be wary about their opponent's threat on the break.  
74' Chance for Lokomotiv! The hosts make a rare foray forward as Miranchuk slips Ze Luis in behind with a brilliant pass and the striker charges towards goal before attempting to sqaure it to Zhemaletdinov for a tap in, only for Lodi to hack it away at the final moment!
72' After having 58% possession in the first half, Atletico have registered 74% in the second period, underlining just how successfully they've pinned the hosts back. 
R. Zhemaletdinov
Yellow Card
69' Zhemaletdinov crashes awkwardly into Lodi and earns himself a yellow card.  
T. Lemar
Á. Correa
69' Correa also makes way with Lemar coming on.
Vitolo
Llorente
69' Atletico make a double substitution - the first of which sees Llorente make way for Vitolo.
68' Llorente hits a speculative shot from 25 yards that trickles harmlessly wide. 
67' Atletico hit the bar! The away side hurl yet another cross into the box and it's flicked onto the bar by Koke, before Suarez taps in the rebound only to see that the linesman has his flag raised for offside!
66' Guilherme makes another big save! Trippier and Correa combine cleverly down the right flank, allowing the former to whip in a cross which is met by Joao Felix who powers a bullet header at goal, only to see the goalkeeper instinctively tip it over!
R. Zhemaletdinov
F. Smolov
64' Smolov is replaced by Zhemaletdinov after a difficult day up top.
63' Yet again, Joao Felix finds a pocket of space 25 yards from goal and he attempts a dinked pass through to Correa but the attacker can't quite latch onto the throughball.  
61' Koke slaloms into the box before scooping a deft cross to the back post where Rybus does well to flick it beyond the run of Suarez.  
59' Atletico - and Joao Felix in particular - have dominated this half so far; if the game continues in the same manner you'd think the away side will find a winner sooner rather than later.  
57' Brilliant save from Guilherme! Joao Felix recieves a pass from Lodi before drifting inside and whipping a curling strike from 25 yards that arcs towards the far corner, before the goalkeeper leaps acrobatically across goal to tip it over the bar!
55' Suarez goes close again! Joao Felix twists and turns in the penalty area before chipping a cross to the back post where Suarez can only manage to feebly nod a header across goal from close range! If he could have directed that on target it would have been extremely difficult to save!
S. Rajković
Yellow Card
54' Rajkovic is the latest player to be shown a yellow card as he collides with Correa.
52' Trippier's resulting free-kick is floated in harmlessly and Kulikov clears.
G. Krychowiak
Yellow Card
51' Krychowiak takes a hack at Llorente's ankle resulting in a yellow card and a dangerous free-kick. 
50' Rybus neatly slips a throughball into the path of Smolov, but the striker's cross is blocked away by Trippier.  
Renan Lodi
Yellow Card
49' Lodi is shown a yellow card after a high tackle on Zhivoglyadov.
48' Joao Felix scored in both Champions League matches against Lokomotiv last season - no Atletico player has ever scored in three consecutive games against an opponent in the competition.
Koke
Saúl
46' Saul is replaced by Koke after a quiet first half.
46' Lokomotiv get the second half underway.
Both teams have shown plenty of intent to win this game so far and the longer the score remains level the more risks they'll take in the second half.
The teams head in all square after an entertaining first half. This has been an intense, attacking game throughout and Atletico managed to get themselves in front on 18 minutes through Gimenez's deft header. However, the away side couldn't control the game from there and Miranchuk equalised for Lokomotiv with a penalty after a handball from Herrera. Afterwards, Atletico recovered to gradually push the hosts back with a long spell of pressure, but they couldn't find a second goal and will have to make do with a 1-1 scoreline at the break.  
45' + 1' HALF TIME: Lokomotiv Moscow 1-1 Atletico Madrid 
Saúl
Yellow Card
44' Saul is booked after a hefty challenge on Miranchuk.
44' Correa darts skillfully past a number of challenges before making his way into the box where Rajkovic brilliantly steps in to dispossess the attacker cleanly.
42' Chance for Suarez! Atletico continue to pile the pressure on Lokomotiv and this time Trippier stands up a deep cross to the back post where Suarez is on hand to slam an acrobatic volley over the bar from a tight angle!
40' Trippier whips in an inswinging corner this time, but it's bravely hacked clear by Cerqueira. 
39' Atletico are just starting to build the pressure on Lokomotiv again, for the first time since they conceded the equaliser. 
37' Correa drives at the heart of the Lokomotiv defence before spreading it out wide to Joao Felix whose drilled cross is blocked away for a corner. However, Trippier's delivery from the set-piece is harmless and the hosts clear. 
35' Lokomotiv calm the game down with a long spell of possession after strong hold-up play from Smolov.
33' Suarez and Joao Felix play a deft one-two allowing the former to find himself clean through on goal! Suarez eventually has his shot saved by Guilherme, but the flag is belatedly raised and the goal wouldn't have counted.  
31' Correa hits the bar! Atletico probe again before Correa takes matters into his own hands by hitting a swerving effort from 30 yards that dips venomously and clips the bar!
Murilo
Yellow Card
29' Cerqueira is shown a yellow card after cynically tripping Llorente near the centre-circle. 
27' This has been a brilliant reponse from Lokomotiv! After conceding first it would have been easy to lose confidence, but instead the hosts have doubled down and played with even more aggression!
A. Miranchuk
Penalty Goal
25' LOKOMOTIV EQUALISE! 1-1! Miranchuk steps up confidently to take the penalty before sending Oblak the wrong way and planting it in the bottom left corner!
L. Suárez
Yellow Card
24' Suarez is shown a yellow card after protesting that penalty call from VAR.
23' Miranchuk whips in a cross that Herrera awkwardly clears on the edge of the box prompting Lokomotiv to furiously appeal for a penalty! The referee waves play on initially, but after a check with VAR the officials spot a handball and a penalty is awarded!
20' Well, that's the ideal start for Atletico! They needed to make a statement early on to sap the enthusiasm out of Lokomotiv and it looks like they've managed just that through Gimenez!
H. Herrera
Assist
18' Herrera's cross was quick enough that Gimenez didn't have to try and put too much power on the header - instead, it allowed the defender to focus on guiding it accurately past Guilherme!
J. Giménez
Goal
18' ATLETICO TAKE THE LEAD! 1-0! The hosts back off Herrera, who composes himself near the left-hand touchline before swinging in a devious cross that Gimenez meets at the near post, before flicking it beyond Guilherme!
17' Saul lets fly from distance with a speculative effort and - although it looks like it was going wide - Guilherme leaps to tip it around the post.
15' Correa attempts to scurry towards the byline, but Rybus does well to pounce on a poor touch and fend off the danger.
13' Miranchuk curls in a cross towards Ze Luis but the striker can't stretch to put his header on target. This game is looking surprisingly open so far!
11' Big chance for Joao Felix! Lodi is afforded a little space out wide and he shapes in an inviting cross towards the six-yard box and it's met by Joao Felix, but the striker can't quite direct his header from close range and it goes well wide.  
9' Atletico will be hoping to improve their surprisingly poor recent defensive record in the competition. They've shipped at least two goals in each of their last four UEFA Champions League matches, their worst run in Europe since 1981 (a run of five).
7' Correa and Trippier combine neatly down the right flank, before the former has a cross deflected behind for a corner. However, Lodi's resulting delivery is headed clear at the near post.  
5' The hosts have started with real intensity as they attempt to take the game to Atletico early on. 
3' Ignatiev draws a foul near the touchline but Miranchuk's resulting delivery is cleared bravely by Lodi.
1' Atletico get the first half underway.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!
Lokomotiv have never beaten Atletico in their five attempts: they drew in the UEFA Cup in 2007, before losing both games in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League and 2019/20 Champions League.
Atletico, meanwhile, make just two alterations: Hermoso and Vitolo drop out with Lodi and Suarez taking their place.
Lokomotiv make four changes to the side that unexpectedly lost against Sochi; most notably, Miranchuk returns to the starting lineup after netting as a substitute in the last game.
