Real Madrid

Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid at the eighth time of asking this season thanks to Javier Hernandez's late winner. It was bad-tempered, scrappy, and downright ugly at times this evening, but a wonderful passage of play involving Cristiano Ronaldo and James Rodriguez, finished off by the Mexico international, has sealed Real's place in the final four and keeps them in contention for back to back Champions League's.

Monaco and Juventus meanwhile finished goalless, meaning the Bianconeri join a rather tasty line up for the semi-finals.

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (1-0 on aggregate)


Real are running down the clock as Atletico desperately try to fling the ball into the box. They are almost out of time...


Five minutes of time added on at the Bernabeu.


Hernandez has done so much running he can barely walk after scoring and Carlo Ancelotti will make the change, bringing on Jese for the goalscorer.


Seconds again, Hernandez was under a pile of Real Madrid players celebrating his side's goal. Now, he's buried under Atletico players, who try to drag the Mexican to his feet having gone down with a cramp.


Real have their lead! Ronaldo bursts down the inside right, cutting inside to play a one two with Rodriguez. The return into the path of Ronaldo is perfect, and he has the chance to take on the shot from a difficult angle. Instead, he prods the ball across goal for Hernandez, who taps home in the dying minutes!


Goal! Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Javier Hernandez, 87)


Jose Maria Gimenez comes on for Tiago, three centre halves now on the pitch for Atletico. Isco now goes down just inside the box having tried to stride past Juanfran, but the referee isn't interested in his appeals.


Oblak makes his first mistake of this fixture and flaps at a Real cross under no pressure to concede a corner. Pepe prods it towards goal as it comes in but it goes wide via a deflection. Or did it? The ref looks to have awarded Atletico a goal kick.


From the resulting corner, Isco cuts inside from the left and looked to bend one for the top corner, but he got it all wrong and skied a woeful effort.


Another chance goes begging for Real! Ronaldo, down the inside right, prods the ball into Hernandez inside the box who has Godin all over him. He does superbly to shrug off the challenge and tries to find the far bottom corner, but his effort his palmed wide by Oblak! Another tremendous save.


Turan strolls off the pitch, eating up as many seconds as he can. His side have 13 minutes until the end of the 90.


Atletico down to 10 men! Arda Turan tries to win a bouncing ball but with his boot raised, catches Ramos. The Real Madrid defender sells it to the referee and a second yellow is brandished.


RED CARD - Arda Turan (Atletico Madrid)


Raul Garcia, not long off the bench, is shown a yellow card and he will miss the next game after a pretty needless foul on Varane.


It was a difficult header for Koke there, to be fair. Mandzukic was behind him calling for a knock on but unless the Spaniard has eyes in the back of his head, there was no one he would have seen him.


Hernandez is dispossessed and Atletico come down the right with Turan and Juanfran exchanging passes. Turan swivels inside and lifts a cross into the box with Koke ghosting into the box, but he nods it straight at Casillas! Wonderful chance for the away side.


Ronaldo screws a shot wide from a difficult angle and looks to have hurt his knee in the process.


Change for Atletico as Antoine Griezmann makes way for Raul Garcia.


Another half chance for Real. Ronaldo pulls out to the left, draws his man in before shifting the ball and whipping another superb cross into the six yard area. Ramos can plant a header on goal, but he gets no direction on it and again it is straight at Oblak.


Varane meets the corner with a terrific leap but powers his header down into the ground, allowing Oblak to easily collect once it bounces up into his arms.


Ronaldo pings a fine cross into the box from out on the left but with Rodriguez lurking, Tiago does the sensible thing and powers clear for another corner.
