Full-time: Atletico Madrid 2-1 Real Madrid

Real Madrid advance 4-2 on aggregate to meet Juventus in Champions League final.

One last chance for Atletico! Griezmann finds a yard inside the box and flashes an effort across goal, but Navas is one again equal to it.

Two minutes of time added on here.

Ronaldo twists, turns and shoots over in the box, despite having both Morata and Marcelo free to his left. The heavens have opened above during the closing stages of the final ever Champions League match at the Vicente Calderon.

And here is that final change. Isco, incredible over both legs against Atletico, is replaced by Morata.

Angel Correa now picks up a yellow card. Looks like Alvaro Morata will be the final Real Madrid change very shortly.

10 minutes remain; Atletico are running out of time quickly.

Real lurch forward on the attack through Asensio who picks out Isco. He takes a touch inside to beat his man and loft an inviting ball in for the onrushing Ronaldo, but Godin is back in a nick of time to intercept and hook the ball away from danger.

Changes from both sides; Angel Correa is onto replace Koke for the final 15 minutes. For Real meanwhile, Marco Asensio is on for Benzema with Lucas Vazquez on for Casemiro.

More magic from Benzema as he shows incredible balance to jink inbetween Savic and Godin, but Partey just about manages to stretch a leg across and nick the ball away from him.

Benzema should settle it! Marcelo lifts an outrageously good cross in from the left at pace that the Frenchman should be planting past Oblak, but he sends it the wrong side of the post. Benzema had to stoop to reach it, but you would have expected him to do better.

Modric's swings a half volley on goal that finds its way into the back of the Atletico net, but it won't count. Officials say Ronaldo, who was stood offside, got the final touch.

Heroic from Navas! Carrasco does brilliantly, latching onto a ball down the inside left channel before cutting onto his right foot. He tries to bend a low effort around Navas but the Real goalkeeper gets down well to block. Gameiro follows it up with a header, but it is straight at Navas who has does brilliantly to spring back up and make the block.

Heroic from Keylor Navas!

Gabi comes in late on Casemiro, having already been shown a yellow card in the first-half. It wasn't a very clever challenge from the Atletico midfielder, but he gets away with one here.

Diego Simeone feels now is the time to make changes; Thomas Partey comes on for Jose Gimenez while Kevin Gameiro replaces Torres.

Close from Isco! The Spaniard lashes a low effort across the face of goal but drags his effort just wide.

Modric brilliantly Cruyff-turns between two Atletico players to evade danger. His influence has grown since that frantic opening 15 minutes from Atletico.

Griezmann whips it over but he can't bring it down enough in time.

Gimenez is left in a heap after Isco takes him down after trying to reach a loose ball. Atleti have a free kick from about 30 yards out.

Close! Ronaldo hammers it on goal but Oblak reads it and punches clear.

Kroos wins a free kick on the edge of the box out on the left after Griezmann stepped across his path. It's an awfully difficult angle but Ronaldo looks like he's going to take the shot on.

Here come the two teams for the second-half.


Isco's goal just before half-time means Atletico are back to square one. They need to score three in the second-half or they are out.

Half-time: Atletico Madrid 2-1 Real Madrid

(Real Madrid lead 4-2 on aggregate)

While it was sublime work from Benzema, I cannot understand why Godin thought it was a good idea to come so far out of position to try and stop him, while Jimenez and Savic were already across trying to deal with it. School boy stuff, with all three players following the ball into the corner, leaving no cover in the middle.

Two minutes of time added on at the end of the first-half.

As is stands, Atletico are back to square one. They need to score three again.

Real have one back just before half-time! Benzema does incredibly out on the left near the corner flag, dancing away from challenges from Godin, Savic and Jimenez to drive a ball into the six yard box. It reaches Kroos, who pings one on goal, drawing an unreal save from Oblak. Isco pounces on the rebound however to convert from close range, dinking it cleverly over the outstretched goalkeeper.

Goal! Atletico Madrid 2-1 Real Madrid (Isco, 41)

Carrasco does brilliantly, nutmegging Isco and driving upfield past one more challenge before offloading the ball to Griezmann. Still a bit miffed from being nutmegged a moment ago, Isco crashes into the back of the France international. Gabi comes to his teammates' aid and screams at the referee for more severe action to be taken. Instead, he is shown a yellow for dissent.

After that Casemiro challenge, it all threatens to kick-off. Carrasco feels he too was brought down by the Brazilian, but the referee waves play on. As the ball is thrown forward, Godin comes crashing through the back of Ronaldo and appears to catch him with an elbow in the process. Godin is shown a yellow, as is Sergio Ramos, presumably for mouthing off.

Casemiro comes crashing through Griezmann as he looks to burst through the middle of the park. He is lucky to escape without a booking, with Atletico given the free kick just inside their half.

That early blitz from Atletico has calmed somewhat in the last 10 minutes.

And Griezmann's spot kick.

Antoine Griezmann

Here's Saul's opener. Just look at the height he finds there.

Saul Niguez

Looking back at that Griezmann penalty; it was rubbish. Navas' footwork looked pretty horrendous as the spot kick was struck and he was unable to get himself behind the strike, despite it being just slightly off-centre.

Godin literally dragged Modric across the pitch by his arm in an effort to pull the Real midfielder back to his feet after that challenge. He was not happy.

Oooof, that is superb challenge from Godin, sliding in over almost two meters to take the ball from Modric and leave the Croatian in a heap on the floor. Pretty much sums up Atleti at the moment; they want it more.

Kroos and Modric are trying to impose themselves on this game having barely got a touch in the opening 15 minutes but the relentless pressing from Atletico is ensuring they don't have time to breathe in the middle of the park.

Real have won a succession of corners this past minute or so but that pressure comes to an end as Ramos hammers a wild header over the bar.

What an unbelievable opening 15 minutes. Atletico are now within one goal of wiping out Real Madrid's advantage. Zidane's side are shellshocked at the minute.

Griezmann does it! He drives a penalty straight down the middle that Navas gets a hand to, but he can't keep it out.

Goal! Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid (Antoine Griezmann, 15)

Varane sticks a leg out across Torres and he catches the Atletico striker inside the box. Referee points to the spot!

PENALTY - Atletico Madrid

Saul outjumped Ronaldo to reach that delivery and his connection was sublime. Real are bit rattled at the moment.

BOOM! Atletico have a deserved lead with Saul smashing home a vicious header from a Koke corner, beating Navas at his near post.

Goal! Atletico Madrid 1-0 Real Madrid (Saul Niguez, 11)

Moments ago there were Atletico appeals for a penalty after Carrasco had danced his way into the box up the byline. The Belgian went down following the challenge of Casemiro but there wasn't enough contact at all to justify a penalty shout.

This match has started at a relentless pace. Chances at both ends, two bookings inside six minutes; good stuff.

What a save by Oblak! Real launch the free kick into the box which Casemiro nods down, only to be denied by a superb springing stop from the Atleti goalkeeper.

Savic is the first Atletico player shown a yellow card; he's booked after a clash with Isco.

Navas denies Atletico! Carrasco glides past Marcelo and drives a cross into the near post to Koke but Navas forces it out for a corner.

Three minutes in and we have our first booking of the game. Danilo, the man called upon to replace Carvajal down the right tonight, fails to control the ball out on the flank, inviting Felipe Luis to race across him. He is caught by Danilo's high boot and gets the free kick.

Godin initially does well in the box but a wayward pass out from the back invites more pressure. Ronaldo receives the ball and opts to spin and shoot, drawing an easy save from Navas.

Here's the first flash point the evening; Torres wins a header to knock the ball onto Carrasco but Ramos is left in a heap as a result of the aerial challenge with the referee pulling play back.

For the final time at the Vicente Calderon, it's Atletico vs Real. Off we go.

Wow, the noise in the Vicente Calderon is incredible as we approach kick-off.

Kick-off is imminent at the Vicente Calderon, here's one last look at those starting XIs...

Atlético team to face Real: Oblak; Giménez, Godin, Savic; Carrasco, Koke, Saúl, Gabi, Filipe Luis; Torres, Griezmann.

Subs: Moyà, Tiago, Correa, Lucas Hernández, Gameiro, Thomas, Gaitán.

Real team to face Atletico: Keylor; Danilo, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Casemiro, Modric, Kroos; Isco, Benzema, Ronaldo

Subs: Casilla, Nacho, Rodríguez, Kovacic, Vázquez, Asensio, Morata.

When is the last time Real Madrid lost by over three goals without scoring one themselves in the Champions League? A quick scan over the Uefa records shows that it was against Liverpool at Anfield in March 2009, when a 4-0 win for Rafa Benitez's side sent Los Blancos crashing out of the competition.

Fernando Torres was on the score-sheet that night, playing alongside two future Real Madrid players in Xabi Alonso and Alvaro Arbeloa.

Elsewhere tonight, Arsenal can take another step towards the top four as they take on Southampton at St Mary's. A win tonight for the Gunners will lift them above Manchester United and into fifth place, three points adrift of fourth place Manchester City.

You can follow that game live with us here.

Just under half an hour until kick-off at the Vincente Calderon.

Atletico Madrid

Diego Simeone has his own problems at right-back. Despite returning to training this week, Juanfran is not available tonight although Jose Maria Giménez does return to fill in on the right-hand side of defence.

Kevin Gameiro drops to the bench after a disappointing night in the capital last week, meaning Fernando Torres comes into lead the attack alongside Antoine Griezmann. The former Liverpool and Chelsea striker is still to score at the Calderon in the Champions League; tonight wouldn't be a bad night to end that hoodoo.

Zinedine Zidane's only change from the first leg is an enforced one. Dani Caravjal; exceptional in the quarter-final victories over Bayern Munich, misses out after suffering a grade 2 hamstring tear during the first-half of last Tuesday's win at the Bernabeu. Nacho came onto replace his countryman that evening, but Danilo is given the nod to fill the void down the right tonight.

Otherwise it is the same team for Real tonight, with Isco once again given the nod to support Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

BREAKING: Fernando Torres comes in to start up front ahead of Kevin Gameiro tonight.

And the full Real squad for tonight...

Real Madrid team to take on Atletico Madrid: Keylor; Danilo, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Isco; Ronaldo, Benzema.

BREAKING: Danilo comes in at right-back in place of the injured Dani Carvajal. Real are otherwise unchanged from the side that eased to victory in the first-leg.

Zinedine Zidane's side have arrived at the Vicente Calderon.

How does Diego Simeone weigh up his side chances tonight? The fiery Argentine insists there is no shame in his side being eliminated from the competition, just as long as they leave everything out on the pitch tonight.

"We have faith in what we are capable of doing, I trust my players very much. I have known the majority of them for five and a half years and have no doubt that tomorrow they are going to play a great game.

"I think that we need to defend well, obviously, to have more chances to continue in the fight. This is going to give us options to play minute by minute, second by second, looking for what we want: to book a spot in the final.

"Our hope is to start strong, like all the teams that play at home. The emotional part, if it's balanced with the football part, is the best way to play a great match."

Team news: Atletico

Juanfran and Jose Maria Gimenez both returned to first-team training this week after both missed out at the Bernabeu last Tuesday.

Juanfran is yet to play a game since being forced off during the 1-1 draw at Leicester City in the second leg of the Champions League last 16. Meanwhile, Gimenez suffered a thigh injury in the 5-0 victory over Las Palmas on 29 April.

Team news: Real Madrid

Real's absentees tonight are Gareth Bale, Dani Carvajal, Pepe, Fabio Coentrao and Mariano. Bale and Carajal still have hope of reaching the final in Cardiff on 3 June against Juventus – providing Real make it there, that is.

Team news: Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo, Keylor Navas and Raphael Varane were all named in Real's 19-man squad for tonight's match after all three missed out over the weekend. Ronaldo and Navas were rested for the 4-0 win over Granada while Varane missed out after suffering a minor recurrence of a previous injury.

Real Madrid are on the cusp of a third Champions League final in four years and within reach of a first European and league double since 1958. Inflicting more misery on Atletico Madrid is a bonus; Diego Simeone's side fell to their city rivals in finals in 2014 and again last year. Cristiano Ronaldo's 42nd hat-trick for the club at the Santiago Bernabeu last week leaves Atleti well and truly on the ropes, needing to summon the sort of fightback never before seen at this stage of the competition.

Can it be done? They will certainly have the right atmosphere for it. At the end of the current season, Los Colchoneros will leave the Vicente Calderon to move into their new home. Tonight's match is the last ever meeting between the Madrid rivals at the old stadium; can they draw inspiration from that to inspire the most unlikely of comebacks?

Stick around, all your team news is coming up shortly.
