Ok gentlefolk, that concludes a riveting evening of European football, I'm sure you'll agree. Earlier on, Juventus 3-2 Roma was a real humdinger with spectacular goals, dodgy penalties and some good old-fashioned fisty-cuffs. In the battle between France's big spenders, Monaco popped in a late goal to deny PSG, and over in the Spanish capital it was normal service as Real Madrid thrashed Athletic Bilbao 5-0 to take their tally to 20 in their last four league games. We'll catch you for more of the same after the international break. Au revoir!

FULL-TIME

Italian Serie A

Tonight's action in Italy's Serie A is all over too.

Fiorentina cruise to 3-0 home win against Inter Milan after Nenad Tomovic adds to first-half goals from Khouma Babacar and Juan Cuadrado.

Napoli have suffered a difficult start to the Serie A campaign but managed to gain some respite for boss Rafa Benitez with a comeback win against Torino. The visitors led through ex-Napoli forward Fabio Quagliarella before Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Maria Callejon turned the game around in the second half.

A smattering of boos can be heard from the PSG fans who are frustrated at their team's sixth (yes, SIXTH) draw of the Ligue 1 season.

The point is enough to move Laurent Blanc's side up to third, but the defending champions are already seven points behind a Marseille side revitalised under Argentine tactician Marcelo Bielsa.

Spanish La Liga

Real Madrid's fourth league victory on the bounce takes them up to fourth in the table, above their city rivals Atletico and four points behind leaders Barcelona.

Alex Haworth: Most players are happy if they score just one goal in the game. Ronaldo only seems satisfied when he gets the hat-trick.

Ruthless Ronaldo

Here's a round-up of Ronaldo's frankly ludicrous numbers. The Portuguese number seven has now scored 26 hat-tricks for Real Madrid and three in the last 15 days. He has 13 goals in six league games and 17 in all competitions.

FULL-TIME

Paris St-Germain 1-1 Monaco

There's almost time for Monaco to nick a shock winner, but Salvatore Sirigu gratefully clutches a low shot to his chest. Moments later the final whistle goes - vital point for the visitors!

GOAL

Paris St-Germain 1-1 Monaco - Anthony Martial (90+2 mins)

On a day packed full of European drama, it is rather fitting that Monaco silence the Parc Des Princes with a late, late equaliser. Teenage substitute Anthony Martial scuffs past PSG stopper Salvatore Sirigu from close range. Doesn't matter how they go in....

FULL-TIME

Real Madrid 5-0 Athletic Bilbao

The final whistle arrives to put the Basques out of their misery. It's a walk in the park for Real. Three for Ronaldo, two for Benzema and plenty of missed chances besides.

GOAL

Real Madrid 5-0 Athletic Bilbao - Ronaldo (89 mins)

It's the hat-trick, but this one is a bit lucky. Marcelo's shot seems to deflect off Ronaldo's arm before nestling in the corner of the Athletic Bilbao net. They all count, and Ronaldo now has 17 goals this season and three hat-tricks in his last four league games.

TEN TO GO

Paris St-Germain 1-0 Monaco

French Ligue 1

Monaco have held their own for long periods of this Ligue 1 match but they are set to return to the principality with nothing - unless they can dig out a late equaliser. Just under 10 minutes to do it...

Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao

James Rodriguez goes down in the box. Will this be Ronaldo's chance from the spot? No, it's a blatant dive, and to his credit James doesn't even appeal. The ball makes its way to Bale whose shot is straight at Iraizoz.

Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao

Spanish La Liga

This really is like a training game for Real. Watching Bilbao it seems extraordinary that this team finished fourth last season. Iraizoz saves one-handed to deny Bale then Ronaldo drives wide from the edge of the area.

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao

No hat-trick for Karim Benzema today as he is replaced by Isco, who scored twice in this fixture last season.

Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao

Only Iraizoz is preventing this from becoming a cricket score, with Ronaldo in the role of WG Grace. Carvajal's cross picks out Ronaldo's head but his effort is brilliantly palmed aside by the 33-year-old stopper.

Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao

Shall we start a countdown to Cristiano's hat-trick? Two more chances for the golden boy, the latest of which is a powerful low drive that Iraizoz does well to keep out.

GOAL

Paris St-Germain 1-0 Monaco - Lucas Moura (71 mins)

Monaco's resistance is broken by the French champions. Despite being urged to shoot by the home fans, Jean-Christophe Bahebeck keeps his composure to slide a precise pass across the Monaco goal for an unmarked Lucas Moura to gleefully smash in the PSG opener.

Bilal Ahmad: That's not the Ronaldo we know of. One on one but unselfish.

GOAL

Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao - Benzema (69 mins)

Like a knife through butter. Luka Modric easily penetrates the Bilbao defence to pick out Ronaldo's run. The only surprise is that the Portuguese superstar opts to pass rather than shoot, squaring the ball for Benzema to tap home.

Real Madrid 3-0 Athletic Bilbao

Bale - 4-0! No, offside. Real size up their target for a while with some probing passing then go for the jugular as Marcelo whips a ball to the far post where Bale heads in. The linesman's flag denies the Welshman his sixth of the season.

CLOSE!

Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

French Ligue 1

And moments later it is Monaco who almost break the deadlock. Layvin Kurzawa, lurking at the far post, appears to have the easiest task of converting into the gaping PSG goal. But he doesn't bank on PSG right-back Gregory van der Wiel scrambling back to hook off his goal-line.

CLOSE!

Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

French Ligue 1

PSG are denied the opening goal by a wonderful reaction save from Monaco keeper Danijel Subasic. Young winger Jean-Christophe Bahebeck, a half-time substitute for Marco Verratti, tries to catch him out by shooting from a tight angle, only for the Croatian to acrobatically push over his crossbar.

Real Madrid 3-0 Athletic Bilbao

I sense a Bale goal might be coming here. Ronaldo squares to the Welsh winger, who cuts across a drive from the edge of the box and stings the fingertips of Iraizoz. By the way, Ronaldo is one goal away from his third hat-trick in four league games.

Real Madrid 3-0 Athletic Bilbao

Spanish La Liga

Real are showboating now. Benzema's cute back-heel tees up Bale on the edge of the area but he curls is shot narrowly wide.

Athletic counter with their best chance of the game. Ibai Gomez creeps in at the far post to meet a cross with his head and Casillas expertly turns his effort around the post.

GOAL

Real Madrid 3-0 Athletic Bilbao - Ronaldo (55 mins)

Absolutely ruthless again from Real. Bale exchanges passes with Benzema then crosses low for Ronaldo, who has a simple tap-in from four yards. I wonder if Brendan Rodgers is watching ahead of Liverpool's Champions League meetings with Real. Good luck with your tactics Bren.

KICK-OFF

Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

French Ligue 1

Back under way in Paris as injured skipper Thiago Silva settles into his padded seat for the second half.

Real Madrid 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

Spanish La Liga

Ancelotti runs his fingers through his grey mane of hair as Bilbao start the half on the front foot. It's not long, though, before Real are carving out another great opening. Ronaldo places the ball into the path of Bale, but Laporte does brilliantly to throw himself towards to the ball and hurry the Welshman into a finish that flies high and wide.

GOAL

Napoli 1-1 Torino - Lorenzo Insigne

Italian Serie A

Is that a huge sigh of relief I can hear all the way from Naples? I'm sure it is. Rafa Benitez will be relieved to see his side level against Torino through Lorenzo Insigne's thumping header.

KICK-OFF

Real Madrid 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

We're back under way in the Spanish capital. Rafael Varane replaces Sergio Ramos at half-time.

Match stats

Real Madrid 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

Real Madrid only had five shots to Athletic's three in that half but they lead 2-0. That's what happens when you have world-class goalscorers like Ronaldo and Benzema in your ranks. The hosts had 57% of possession and barring a miracle look certain to be signing off for the international break in good order.

Latest scores

Italian Serie A

While we reflect on the action in the Spanish and French capital cities, let's nip across the Mediterranean to find out what's happening in Italy.

Fiorentina are leading 2-0 against Inter Milan after first-half goals from Khouma Babacar and Juan Cuadrado, who you may remember starred for Colombia in last summer's World Cup.

And things are going from bad to worse for ex-Liverpool and Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez. His Napoli team, who finished third last season, have suffered a mixed start to the campaign and are now trailing 1-0 against visitors Torino.

And that effort, along with PSG midfielder Marco Verrati's push on Monaco rival Geoffrey Kondogbia (earning him a yellow card), is the last action of an entertaining first half. Delicately poised is this one.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

French Ligue 1

The frame of the PSG is still rattling after Belgian midfielder Yannick Ferreira Carrasco smashes a first-time shot against the home crossbar. Best chance of the match in the dying moments of the first half.

HALF-TIME

Real Madrid 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

Spanish La Liga

The whistle goes in the Bernabeu to wrap up a very satisfying 45 minutes for Ancelotti and his merry men. As things stand, they look to be marching back towards the top four.

Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

French Ligue 1

Javier Pastore whips in a dangerous cross from the right which flashes across the Monaco goal. But no-one in dark blue is there to prod in.

Minutes later, there is another let-off for the visitors. Another inviting centre, this time from Maxwell on the left, just skims the forehead of PSG striker Edinson Cavani and the ball flies harmlessly wide.

PSG pressing for the opener.

GOAL

Real Madrid 2-0 Athletic Bilbao - Benzema (41 mins)

Far too easy. Luka Modric's corner is a regulation delivery to the edge of the six yard box and Karim Benzema leaps above his marker to head down and in.

Ronaldo, oozing menace, cuts in from the left and squares for James Rodriguez, but the Colombian's first touch is heavy, as it has been all game, and Atletico win back the ball.
