Real Madrid - Atlético: Madrid derby live online
Madrid now trail FC Barcelona by 7 points with Atletico holding a two point cushion over Real Betis.
Madrid travel to Betis next weekend as Simeone's side welcome Sevilla.
A much better second half at the Bernabeu after a lackluster first 45'.
Three big talking points in the second half... the Correa straight red, the Gimenez goal and the first goal in professional football for Alvaro Rodriguez.
All over in the Spanish capital and a share of the points
Alvaro fouls Hermoso and that's it....
Given the situation of being reduced to ten men so early in the second half, a point is not a bad result for Atleti.
For the home side, it would appear to be two points dropped and a massive advantage for Barcelona should they beat Almeria tomorrow.
Vini overhits the ball. He's been on fire recently but off song today.
Four minutes of added time left.
Modric carded for obstruction as blocks Carrasco's path
We'll have five minutes of added time.
Three minutes of normal time left at the Bernabeu.
Much, much better second half after a limp first 45'.
First goal ever in LaLiga for the teenager
Carvajal makes way for Lucas Vazquez
Less than ten to go... Can Atleti hang on...
To be honest the ten men have responded well and a hint of frustration is palpable at the Bernabeu.
What a delivery from Griezmann as Gimenez rises majestocally to nod home
Alvaro on for Nacho as Ancelotti looks to the teenager who impressed recently against Osasuna.
Saul off for Atleti as Morata takes his place.
Witsel replaces Koke.
Vini finds Camavinga but the former Rennes man blazes the ball over the bar
Morata and Witsel poised to make an entrance for Atleti as Simeone uses all his substitutes
Carrasco and Griezmann work well and secure a corner for the visitors.
Molina carded as he fouls Nacho
Big, big talking point and possibly the moment that tips the derby in favour of Real Madrid
Harsh on the former San Lorenzo man as although he did lash out at the German international.... was there enough for a red?
Correa is off as the referee deems that he elbowed Rudiger.
Triple switch for Madrid
On: Modric, Tchouaméni, Camavinga
Off: Kroos, Asensio, Ceballos
Valverde strikes from the edge and his effort goes inches wide.
Better now from Atletico as, once again, they seem to have ridden out the intense spell of pressure.
Griezmann goes so, so close after a fine ball from Carrasco.
Things now going Vini's way in the second half as he is getting his pocket picked with ease by the men in red and white.

Modric and Camavinga warming up.
Llorente swapped for Lemar (ATM switch)
Card for Nacho as he clips Correa
Atletico unable to retain possession now as Madrid seem to have the game well under control.
Corner for Madrid.
Asensio takes but the ref has spotted an infringement and Atleti get a free kick.
Valverde shoots but the Uruguayan fails to get the ball on target and the danger abates for Atleti.
Real Madrid need to get Vinicius in action more regularly as the Brazilian is the major source of danger for Ancelotti's side.
Vini does well and almost threads the ball through to Benzema but the Frenchman miscues and the ball drifts wide.
Great work from Molina as he breaks down the right hand side and finds Saul. A shocking finish from the former Chelsea man as he totally mis-kicks.
Madrid get the second 45 minutes underway
Barrios off with Correa on (Atleti change)
The teams return to the pitch for the second 45'.
Correa is poised to make an appearance for Atleti.
Despite Oblak being the busier of the two keepers, neither the Slovenian nor Courtois have been made to sweat.
The only blemish on the half (apat from more spark in the game) is no doubt the serious looking injury that Reinaldo sustained.
Fingers crossed that it's not that serious for the defender who had really established himself as a regular fixture in Simeone's side.
Far from a classic in the Spanish capital.
Madrid enjoying the better of the half but Atleti never really looking under any major pressure.
Simeone will be happy as his side have looked bright when they counter.
Fingers crossed, the action improves in the second 45'.
HT: 0-0 at the interval at the Bernabeu.
Final minute of the half we'll have one minute of added time.
The tempo has dropped somewhat now as we head towards the interval.
Very little in clear cut scoring chances to talk about in the the first 45'.
Good work from Llorente as he forces Rudiger to clear for a corner for the men in red and white.
LLorente clips Vini and is carded
Ten left in the half and neither keeper has really been tested.
Next up for both teams:
Real Madrid: at home to FC Barcelona in the Copa del Rey on Thursday
Atletico: at home to Sevilla next Sunday in LaLiga
A tense opening half an hour here at the Bernabeu with Atleti riding out that brief storm and are now very much back in the game.
Decent spell from Atleti as the move the ball around in a patient manner. Saul then gives the ball away as Courtois lets the visitors earn a corner as the ball whacks Gimenez's head and Madrid get the ball away from the resulting corner.
Gimenez replaces the injured Reinaldo for Atletico.
Always a sad sight as Reinaldo is stretched from the pitch and the defender looks to in some distress after that bad fall.
Koke carded as he clips Ceballos.
Reinildo falls awkwardly and seems to have twisted his knee.
Atleti currently with ten men and it looks as if Reinaldo will be switched.
Twenty minutes gone in the derby and Madrid are very much in the ascendancy.
The sensation of danger every time Vini Jr gets the ball is palpable.

Carrasco hits the free and clips the ball wide. All it needed was a flick.
The visitors have stated on the front foot with Madrid still yet to get into gear.
Militao carded as he hauls back Carrasco and is the first player in the book tonight.
Valverde handles (the ball bouncing up from his foot).... Ref says no spot kick despite timid protests from the Atleti players.
Vini gets in the action for the first time tonight and his side win the first corner of the night.
Rudiger heads but the ball drifts wide.
All the noise that we hear tonight will be generated by the home fans with just 50 Atleti fans taking up ticket allocation with many Colchoneros boycotting the game over high prices and a poor allocation in the recent Copa del Rey clash
Jesus Gil Manzano sounds his whistle and Atleti get the contest underway
Both teams in their classic colours tonight.... Madrid in all white and Atleti in red and white stripes, blue shorts and red socks
Gracias Amancio / Thanks Amancio is the giant tifo that is now being unfurled as we observe the minute's silence.
All the Real Madrid players line up (temporarily) with the No7 shirt and the name of Amancio on the back.
Rain falls on the stadium as a tifo with Amaro's image is displayed in the south stand of the Bernabeu.
The teams are poised to take to the pitch.
It appears we'll have a tribute to Amancio Amaro who passed away this week aged 83.
Less than ten minutes to go until kick-off at the Bernabeu.
Hard to see anything but a home win this evening with Madrid looking impressive after their last setback in Mallorca.
Atleti too are on a fine run having not last in their past six LaLiga outings but the Colchoneros have recently struggled at the Bernabeu.

A snapshot on both teams ahead of the derby.
Ruthless champions firing on all cylinders
Madrid have one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals after putting sorry Liverpool to the sword on Merseyside in an incredible first leg.
Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema helped themselves to doubles as the holders stormed back from sliding two goals down inside 15 minutes.
The LaLiga and European champions, who also won the Club World Cup this month, have won five games in a row and scored 20 goals in the process.
Second-placed Madrid are eight points behind leaders Barcelona and 10 better off than Atleti, who occupy fourth spot.
Derby delight in short supply for Atleti
Atleti have only won one of their last 13 LaLiga meetings against their city rivals, Yannick Carrasco's penalty securing a 1-0 victory last May.
Los Blancos have come out on top in six and drawn as many times in the other dozen encounters.
Simeone's side have suffered three consecutive LaLiga losses at the home of their rivals without scoring a goal.
Carlo Ancelotti's men have already beaten Atleti twice this season, most recently a 3-1 Copa del Rey triumph after extra time last month.
Simeone set to equal Luis Aragonés record at Atlético Madrid helm
Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone is plotting to bring Real Madrid back down to earth when he makes history in Saturday's derby at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The former Argentina midfielder will take charge of his 425th LaLiga game as Atleti boss, which is more than any other coach has overseen for one club in the Spanish top flight.
Simeone will also match Luis Aragones' record tally of 612 competitive matches in the dugout for the capital club, taking in all competitions.
Ancelotti names RM XI
With no Rodrygo, Alaba or Mendy for the home side, Ancelotti names Asensio as striking partner for Vini Jr and Benzema for Real Madrid.

Only 50 Atleti fans expected at the Bernabeu
Cholo Simeone's men will be supported by just a handful of 'Colchoneros' today in Chamartin as the visitors only took up 50 tickets as part of their allocation. High pricing and problems getting tickets for the recent Copa del Rey clash have seen many Atleti fans boycott a trip to the Bernabeu.
This is how the sides are placed in LaLiga. Madrid ten points clear of their capital city rivals. Atleti's battle is to secure Champions League football next season and have Real Betis pressing in fifth bolstered by a 2-3 win at Elche on Friday night.
