Full time: Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo continues to astonish and astound, with another superb display to inspire Real Madrid into what will surely be a 15th Champions League final. Atletico Madrid have been woeful but Ronaldo has taken full advantage with a treble, the first from a header before two after the break. Diego Simeone's men are set for defeat to their city rivals in this competition for a fourth season in a row. Can their final European game at the Calderon produce a comeback next week? It is going to take an almighty effort to stop this Real side.

24 day 21:36

Three added minutes in the Bernabeu. More a question over if Real will get another.

GOAL! Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid (Cristiano Ronaldo)

Goodnight Atletico. Vasquez has been superb since coming on and he exchanges passes with Ronaldo, who takes one touch to control before wrong-footing Oblak to make it three. A hat-trick for the Real striker and his side have one foot in the final in Cardiff.

Zinedine Zidane delighted by Real's two-goal advantage.

And perhaps the most impressive stat of the night from Ronaldo.

GOAL! Real Madrid 2-0 Atletico Madrid (Cristiano Ronaldo)

A goal which could send Real Madrid into another Champions League final. Benzema toe-pokes the ball on to Ronaldo, who benefits from a ricochet against Felipe Luis but when the ball drops he gives Oblak no chance with a smashing drive which doubles the lead on the night.

24 day 21:14

Benzema's performance has ranged from the superb to the ridiculous and he blazes over from a tight angle when he could easily have played the ball across the penalty area.

Marco Asensio on for Real. He should inject some pace into this game which is badly needed.

24 day 21:07

Real very happy to keep the ball around the halfway line and let Atletico do the running. Perhaps they should be going for the kill? I doubt they will have it as easy next Wednesday when the pair meet in the last European game at the Calderon.

24 day 21:03

Fernando Torres and Nicolas Gaitan on for Atletico, who haven't got going in this game - let alone the second half.

24 day 20:58

Real have started the second half like they did in the first, doing all the running and putting Atletico under severe pressure. Chance for Toni Kroos to swing in a free-kick but it evades Ramos and Varane.

24 day 20:52

Lots of debate over whether that Ronaldo goal should have stood or not, given that from the initial cross by Ramos the Portugal international was standing in an offside position. Whether he was interfering with play however is the main bone of contention. I'm not sure how you can be that close to goal and not involved in play in some way of other.

24 day 20:49

Teams out for the second half. Nacho on for the injured Carvajal.

Half time: Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid

Advantage Real at half time in the first leg, given to them by Cristiano Ronaldo's 101st Champions League. The hosts have dominated for long periods it must be said and should be further ahead with chances of Raphael Varane, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric. Atletico have been poor, but they'll be delighted by only trailing by one.

Real Madrid celebrate Ronaldo giving them an early lead.

Half chance for Atletico. Griezmann faints to shoot from a free-kick and catches out the Real defence delivering a cross for Diego Godin who can't get proper contact and the ball balloons over the bar.

24 day 20:16

Karim Benzema nearly makes it two. Ronaldo crosses brilliantly and the Frenchman acrobatically turns the ball towards goal but over Oblak's bar.

24 day 20:12

Luka Modric takes aim from 20 yards but Oblak has it covered as it bounces wide. Great start to this first leg.

24 day 20:05

Action at both ends now. Kevin Gameiro goes one-on-one wit Keylor Navas, and tries to go round the real goalkeeper but the Costa Rican gets a hand in and keeps the scores level.

24 day 20:04

Oblak produces an outstanding save to keep the lead to one. Varane rises highest from Modric's corner and the Atletico 'keeper gets across with a brilliant one-handed stop. All Real in the opening minutes.

24 day 19:57

GOAL! Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Cristiano Ronaldo)

Dream start for the 11-time winners. Ronaldo brings up 101 in the Champions League when Ramos' cross is only cleared as far as Carvajal and when he plays the ball back in Ronaldo rises highest and thump home.
