Into added time...

Out of nothing! Atletico Madrid win a corner which is not cut out and midfielder Raul Garcia is open two yards out to flick home with the bottom of his boots! Terrible defending and an away goal for Atleti.

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid

Ikram Miah: Real Madrid attacking is lethal with Bale, Ronaldo and Rodriguez, They will surely be favourites for winning the Champions League.

Louis Theodossiou: New rule - If a player crosses the vanishing spray line and gets penalised, the captain of that players team should get booked.

Paul Anthony Collins: Game full of stars and play actors trying get others sent off. Ramos should have gone though.

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid

James Rodriguez will remember that goal for many reasons - but as it came at 12:40 am it must be the latest he's ever scored?

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid

An immediate response from Atletico sees Koke fire in a dipping strike which forces Iker Casillas into a fine save. Last 10...

GOAL

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid - James Rodriguez

There it is! Dani Carvajal crosses in, Karim Benzema sees his effort well blocked and new boy James Rodriguez is in the right place to steer the loose change home from 10 yards out. First goal for the club. It won't be his last!

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Karim Benzma floats a header on to the top of the net before Real bring on Angel Di Maria - who gets a huge, huge ovation from the stands. They don't want to see him sold.

Atletico hand new boy Raul Jimenez 13 minutes up front in place of Mario Mandzukic.

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Another brilliant touch from Gareth Bale takes him away from two defenders, he finds Toni Kroos but the German's shot hits the back of a defender. Atletico are readying a few changes as we enter the final 15 minutes.

CLOSE!

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Gareth Bale takes the free-kick at the second attempt, hammered hard and low, Miguel Moya can only palm it out and Toni Kroos has the whole goal to aim at, and puts it over! Big chance.

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Don't encroach the vanishing spray! Raul Garcia edges over the foam and is booked for his troubles. Sergio Ramos put the original effort over the bar but they get a second shy....

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Sergio Ramos rises high to flick a header wide, before Atletico Madrid replace Guilherme Siqueira with Cristian Ansaldi. Siqueira was lucky not to be sent-off there for another foul on Gareth Bale.

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

A big collision as Mario Mandzukic and Sergio Ramos go up for the header, it's a heavy landing and the temperamental Ramos then appears to put his hand into Mandzukic's face!

It's not a punch, but more than a shove, and they are both booked. He's a touch lucky there.

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Exciting addition to the Madrid scene - France midfielder Antoine Griezmann is on. He had a cracking World Cup.

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Dani Carvajal takes aim from 25 yards but fizzes the shot high and wide. Not a bad dig from the Real Madrid full-back - this is a frustrating evening for the home side so far.

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

James Rodriguez has attached himself just behind Karim Benzema, with Toni Kroos a bit of a fish out of water on the left-hand side. Wonder if Angel Di Maria may be a better option out there?

GREAT SAVE!

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Great stuff from Gareth Bale! He collects a cut back from Dani Carvajal, gets away from Diego Godin and thrashes in a right-footed effort which is well pushed clear by Miguel Angel Moya.

KICK-OFF

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo must have an injury. Surely.

Anyway, we are back under way.

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Here he is. Colombia's hottest export since Shakira is coming on - it's James Rodriguez on in place of Cristiano Ronaldo. I didn't expect that!

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid gather in the tunnel - James Rodriguez has been going through a very rigorous warm-up, is he coming on?

HALF-TIME

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti meets the referee on the side of the pitch. He's not happy, but it's goalless at the interval. Almost midnight in Madrid.

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

A few whistles around the ground as we approach half-time. When you assemble a team of so many stars you maybe expect a supernova of a performance.

We asked who you think will win the Champions League.

John McEnerney: Bayern will be the team to beat. Do you think those WCup winners will sit back on their laurels? No chance! Unstoppable!

Zak Bakur: Apart from Real Madrid and Barca. Closest challenger to the CL has to be Jose's Chelsea! There's quality in every position

Stephen Shaw: CL final Chelsea-Real. You probably didn't hear that here first

CLOSE!

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

It's not so often you see Gareth Bale out on the left wing any more, but he made a goal from there in Cardiff last week and almost does again, whipping in a brilliant cross which Cristiano Ronaldo attacks, only to head wide.

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Toni Kroos and Luka Modric link up smartly in the midfield, before Modric spins out of a tackle, leaves one man for dead with a bodyswerve and then hits a low shot which deflects wide. Outstanding stuff. Xabi Alonso is then booked for the hosts for a cynical check.

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Diego Godin scored a header in the Champions League final between these two sides back in May, and he causes havoc again, flicking a header back into the middle and Iker Casillas flaps at it, Mario Mandzukic then tries to lift the ball back over the top but Casillas grabs it.

Atletico a real threat in the air.

Andrew: Real Madrid look frightening on the break, they could sweep all before them this season. The pace of Ronaldo and Bale is scary to see.

Sheelagh: After his heroics at the World Cup this summer, James Rodriguez still has to settle for a place on the bench! That just goes to show the sheer strength, depth and quality of this Real Madrid squad.

Andrew, Richhill: I know no team has ever retained the Champions League trophy, not the great Juventus team of the late 90s, not the untouchable Barcelona team of 2009-12 nor the ruthless Bayern Munich of the last two seasons. Having said that, I can't look past this Real Madrid side retaining their CL crown this season. Their already strong side has been strengthened even further in the summer. Beware Europe!

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Still all Real in the Bernabeu, but they don't look at their most incisive best this early in the season. James Rodriguez could well make a difference at some stage.

A bit of late transfer news which has come through this evening, Brazil's World Cup goalkeeper Julio Cesar has joined Benfica after being released by Queens Park Rangers.

The 34-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the Portuguese club.

Reuters

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

No Thibaut Courtois for Atletico Madrid this season of course, and they've gone for Miguel Angel Moya in nets tonight. He came in from Getafe, and they also have big-money signing Jan Oblak available. That could be a battle throughout the season.

Gareth Bale beats his man for pace and spins in a cross which Karim Benzema can't get on the end of.

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Is Sami Khedira off then? There will be a large queue of suitors for the German midfielder, but I can't see him getting much football for Real. Toni Kroos, Xabi Alonso and Luka Modric will all take some shifting.

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

The visitors have been penned in but they go direct and it works, Mario Mandzukic finding space on the corner of the penalty area and hitting a dipping shot which is held by Iker Casillas. Decent hit by the Croatian.

And then a bigger chance! Mistake at the back from Sergio Ramos and Saul is in, he hits it early but Casillas saves again.

Better ball Saul...

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

I'm going to stick my neck out here and predict at least one red card in this one. Gareth Bale is taken out in full flight by Guilherme Siqueira and goes in the book. That was high and rash by the Brazilian left-back, who has replaced Chelsea's new man Luis Felipe.

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid absolutely dominant so far, pinging the ball around really nicely, and the move ends with Gareth Bale dragging a shot wide from 20 yards.

Championship latest

BBC Radio 5 live

Brighton manager Sami Hyypia tells BBC Radio 5 live he is very happy with side after securing his first victory in the 2-0 win at Leeds United: He said: "The first half was very good football and we dominated the game and showed what we can do.

"These Championship games are always a battle and we were fighting very hard and it's battle you have to win if you want to win these games. The players were excellent today and I'm very happy."

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo gets the ball over on the left but he is double-teamed by two Atletico defenders and has to come inside. He loses the ball. Real instantly win it back and spin the pass out to Gareth Bale. Frightening pace out wide for Real.

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Here we go! First tackle of the night is a tasty one, Koke sliding into the ankles of Pepe and picking up a very early booking. All Real so far.

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Varane, Coentrao, Navas, Arbeloa, Rodriguez, Di Maria, Isco.

Have you seen a better bench than that? That is why Real Madrid will take some stopping on all fronts this ear. Sami Khedira and ASier Illarramendi can't even get on the bench...

KICK-OFF

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Here we go! An intra-city derby between two sides who hate each other, a team representing the working class against a team in the image of the royal family, kicking off at 11pm local time.

Besiktas 0-0 Arsenal

Lweendo Michello: Alexis drifted in and out of the game. Will take him time to adapt; he's used to passing/crossing for Messi, not Giroud.

Rashid Jamil: Arsenal still need few more quality signings to make a mark either in the Premier League and/or Champions League this season.

John Pierce: Perfect result for Everton. Arsenal with it all to do and a trip to Goodison in between.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid (22:00 BST)

'Gracias Alfredo' reads a huge banner, as Iker Casillas looks close to tears. A very moving moment for the passionate fans of Real.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid (22:00 BST)

Carlo Ancelotti is out at the Bernabeu as the stadium pays tribute to the recently departed club legend Alfredo Di Stefano. The club have put all the trophies he won at the club in the centre-circle. It's a lot...

A string quartet plays Adagio for Strings. A very classy touch.

Besiktas 0-0 Arsenal

"Aaron Ramsey has been in great form but you saw Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain come off the bench, hit the post and look very lively. I think it will be a straight swap next week with Oxlade-Chamberlain coming in.

"Ramsey will be a loss for Arsenal because he's in good form. He was relatively quiet tonight but can you let him off the odd quiet one. They were two silly yellow cards tonight although the first one was a bit soft."

Who can win the Champions League?

Josh Lewis: Real Madrid are the team to beat, their starting line up is brilliant! Can see Man City doing well as well but hope Mourinho does!

LINE-UPS

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid (22:00 BST)

Real Madrid's team is ominously strong, they can leave new £65m man James Rodriguez on the bench and Sami Khedira is not in the squad at all. Cue transfer speculation!

Atletico Madrid have Mario Mandzukic up top.

Real Madrid: Casillas; Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo: Kroos, Alonso; Bale, Modric, Ronaldo; Benzema.

Atletico Madrid: Moya; Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Siqueira; Gabi, Suarez, Koke, Saul, Garcia; Mandzukic.

League Two full-time round-up

Morecambe and Burton are officially League Two's frontrunners, which is not something you get to say too often. They both continued their 100% starts with 1-0 wins over Oxford and Exeter respectively - the U's remain pointless long with Newport, Hartlepool and Accrington.

Luton are still searching for a first home win since returning to the Football League - but Pelly Ruddock rescued them a point in injury time against Bury. Cambridge United let a two-goal lead slip to draw at York and there were wins for Portsmouth, AFC Wimbledon and Shrewsbury.

Champions League update

Athletic Bilbao survived late pressure to hold on for a 1-1 draw in their first-leg tie at Napoli. There was a late goal in Romania where Staeau Bucharest's Alexandru Chipciu made up for a penalty miss to strike in the 90th minute and snatch a 1-0 win over Ludogrets.

Emil Forsberg scored even later - his injury time header giving Malmo hope of reaching the group stage after a 2-1 defeat to Red Bull Salzburg. Bayer Leverkusen are big favourites to go through after winning 3-2 at FC Copenhagen.

Manager reaction

Besiktas 0-0 Arsenal

EPA

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "A difficult game played at a frenetic pace throughout. We could have won it but they had chances as well. In the end we didn't lose and hopefully we will make it at home.

"Both yellow cards for Aaron Ramsey are unbelievable When you see the fouls they have made today it's not serious. Just not serious."

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid (22:00 BST)

Another game to come in Spain and it's a repeat of May's Champions League final, as the Spanish champions face the European champions.

Atletico have lost Diego Costa, Thibaut Courtois, David Villa, Felipe Luis and Adrian, but have replaced them with Mario Mandzukic, Antoine Griezmann, Jan Oblak and Raul Jimenez.

Can Diego Simeone perform another miracle? It's almost 11pm in Madrid. Why not have a game?

League One full-time round-up

Fleetwood are the only side in League One to have won all three of their games, as two goals in the last 20 minutes saw them beat pointless Scunthorpe. Sheffield United have their first points of the season, with Ben Davies' late goal securing a 2-1 win at Peterborough.

Rochdale have thumped Crewe 5-2 - so the Alex continue their search for a first point. And Swindon left it late to snatch a last-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw at Gillingham.

Championship update

Lewis Grabban gets his second goal to make sure for Norwich as they lead Blackburn 3-1.

Ipswich level late at Birmingham through Christophe's Berra's second of the night to take a point and Middlesbrough go 2-1 up at Bolton through Garcia Martinez.

Besiktas 0-0 Arsenal

Former Arsenal forward John Hartson on BBC Radio 5 live

"It was a gutsy performance from Arsenal. Over the piece, Besiktas created the better chances particularly from Demba Ba, who hit the crossbar. But saying that, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could have nicked it for Arsenal at the end when he hit the post.

"Arsenal will be pleased with the draw and Arsene Wenger will be pleased with his side's attitude and they've come away very much in the the tie."
