Cristiano Ronaldo

Well that is all we have time for on this Champions League live text. We're back tomorrow with live coverage of Juventus vs Monaco in the second semi-final. But until then, it's goodnight.

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.

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.

Cristiano Ronaldo takes aim as he puts Real Madrid two-up over derby rivals Atletico.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Cristiano Ronaldo

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

First decent chance of the game falls to Real Madrid. Carvajal bursts into the area and shoots with Oblak spilling the ball straight to Benzema, who somehow can't find the target. Amazing miss.

One hundred Champions League goals for Cristiano Ronaldo but he is made to wait for 101, striking wide with his first effort of the night. Atletico looking nice and compact early on.

Underway in Madrid. This could be a cracker.

The sight before kick-off in the Real Madrid end. Martin Atkinson the man with the whistle tonight. Good luck hearing him.

There is also a nod to the trophies Real won in Milan and Lisbon - the venues where they beat Atletico on both occasions. Bit a needle, and we haven't even begun in Madrid.

Teams are in the Bernabeyu tunnel and both sides are about to enter the field of play. One side of the stadium is decked out in a huge map of Europe, with 11 European Cups dotted around signifying the cities in which Real have won their Champions League title. Quiet a sight before kick-off.

Tomorrow night is the turn of Juventus and Monaco to try and put one foot in Cardiff's Champions League final on 27 May. They will watch tonight's first leg in Madrid with great interest I am sure, given their status as underdogs in this competition.

Ridiculous ruling from the home side tonight.

Broadcasters BT Sport have just played footage from the two finals this paid have contested in this competition. The difference between the Real Madrid euphoria and Atletico Madrid heartache could not be more striking. Can Diego Simeone's side make up for that disappointment tonight?

I watched them against Leicester City a few weeks ago and they were a tad fortunate to progress and if they give Ronaldo and co. the amount of chances they allowed the Premier League champions in the second leg, you have to feel their progress in this competition will end at the semi-final stage.

The sight which has greeted both teams outside the Bernabeu. Real feeling of occasion in the Spanish capital.

Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid

If indeed Real Madrid's season is to collapse like a pack of cards, how significant will the El Clasico defeat a week or so prove to be? Los Blancos were ballsy that night to say the least and they were duly punished by Lionel Messi and co. Victory tonight would really help turn things around and ensure a season in which could feasibly end empty handed does not end in anticlimax.

Incredible reception for the Madrid team bus as it pulls up outside the Bernabeu. White smoke emanating accompanies their arrival. That, or a new pope has been appointed.

Real Madrid might be 11-time champions and leaders of La Liga, but Atletico might fancy pulling off an upset over the next eight days or so. Only twice have Simeone's side lost in 90 minutes in the last 15 meetings between the two. Two of those occasions saw stalemates after normal time in the 2014 and 2016 Champions League finals, before extra time and then penalties two years later delivered the title for Real. Atletico have revenge on their mind.

So as mentioned previously, it is Isco who is selected ahead of Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez and starts for Real Madrid tonight. The rest of the team is as expected.

For Atletico, Lucs Hernandez starts at the back alongside Diego Godin. Kevin Gameiro leads the attack alongside Antoine Griezmann.

Closely followed by Atletico.

Real Madrid drop their team typically early. Isco wins the battle to start ahead of Bale and Rodriguez.

The Bernabeu looks a picture tonight.

Atletico's team bus has completed the short journey across the city.

Teams on the way from the Bernabeu, but first how do we expect both sides to line-up?

Raphael Varane is back for Real Madrid but Pepe is out through injury. Zidane must choose between Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez or Isco to lead his attack

Atletico are without a host of defenders. Jose Gimenez and Juanfran are both missing, as it Sime Vrsaljko.

Will tonight be the night Atletico Madrid finally break Real Madrid's resistance? Los Blancos have prevailed in each of their Champions League meetings in the last three seasons, including in the finals in 2014 and 2016. Diego Simeone's side are a tough nut to crack, but can they break the streak to reach the final for the third time in four seasons?

Meanwhile, Zinedine Zidane will be hoping to prove that his Real side are not cracking in the twilight of the campaign. The cub still hold the initiative in the La Liga title race and are favourites to lift a 12th European crown yet defeat in El Clasico has damaged their position of authority. Can Cristiano Ronaldo rise to the big occasion again?

All the build-up and updates ahead of the 7:45pm BST kick-off in Madrid on the way.
