Minute   Description
90' +3 FULL-TIME: ATLETICO MADRID 1-3 REAL MADRID
90' +1 Three minutes have been added on at the end of the match. The contest has been as good as over from the moment substitute Bale sent the ball flying past Oblak 74 minutes in to give Real a two-goal advantage.
89' M. Díaz enters the game and replaces K. Benzema.
Benzema has been Real's best player over the 90 minutes, even if he has been unable to get on the scoresheet. The striker is replaced by Mariano in the sixth and final substitution of the day.
88' OVER THE BAR! Great play from Real as Vazquez sends Benzema free down the right. The striker spots Bale in the middle and picks him out with a delightful cross, but the header has too much on it and ends over the crossbar. Not the easiest of chances for Bale, in truth.
86' Real have had 70 per cent of the ball in the second half. They have managed just the one shot on target since the restart, but it proved decisive as Bale fired the ball across Oblak and into the far corner to give his side some breathing space.
84' Dani Ceballos enters the game and replaces T. Kroos.
Kroos, who has helped control the flow of the game from midfield, is replaced by Ceballos for the closing stages. The Germany midfielder never quite recovered from Thomas' mistimed challenge.
82' Two goals ahead and now a man better off than their opponents - it was not supposed to be this easy for Real. The reigning European champions continue to rack up the passes, knowing that the onus is on their opponents to find a goal.
80' T. Partey gets a second yellow card and is sent off.
This is a nasty challenge from Thomas, catching the ankle of Kroos to earn a second yellow card. A bad day for Atletico has just got a lot worse.
78' Simeone's side have offered little since falling a third goal behind. This could well be a pivotal day in LaLiga as Real are now in charge of their own destiny in terms of second place, and Solari will not rule out chasing down Barcelona over the remaining three months of the season.
76' Real now have 15 minutes to see through and they will be behind only Barcelona in LaLiga - what a turnaround it has been under Solari. The hosts are full of confidence and are knocking the ball around inside the Atletico half of the field.
