Thanks as ever for your company this evening. We shall see you again soon. Stay tuned on Friday for the draw of the last four. Adios.

'The win is down to the whole team'

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Real Madrid goalscorer Javier Hernandez: "I was the one who ended up scoring, but this win is down to the entire team. Every goal I score is huge for me.

"It was a great pass from Cristiano Ronaldo. Atletico were great opponents, and last year they made it to the Champions League final. To be the champions of Europe again, we needed to beat them."

Bolton manager Neil Lennon on BBC Radio 5 live

"Who would Real Madrid find to replace Carlo Ancelotti? He's a brilliant manager, great longevity. He's won three Champions Leagues, he's won things in Italy, England and Spain. And the way he carries himself is fantastic.

"They'll get a huge psychological lift from this with the injuries they've had. It'll give them a huge confidence lift for the rest of the season."

'We are a team of men'

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone: "I go away proud of my team. Once more we competed very well in a very difficult competition like the Champions League.

"Competing as we did today, I have sure I have a team of men, a team that work hard.

"At times we can play better or worse, but I am so proud of the players and to be the coach of these guys who gave what they gave today."

Want to know where Monaco went wrong this season in the Champions League?

They only converted seven of their 97 shots attempted in the Champions League this season. Blunt.

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Sergio Ramos did a decent job in midfield this evening but is he a long-term answer in there? Luka Modric's absence will be felt hugely in the next round, you feel.

Ryan Heatly: Real absolutely battered Atletico away and at home. Would have been a travesty if they had gone out.

Bale should stay in Spain

Real Madrid's Gareth Bale should resist a return to the Premier League says Stoke City boss Mark Hughes.

Bale, 25, joined from Tottenham Hotspur for a world record £85.3m in 2013.

"He's done everything right up to this point and having a huge impact over there but if he can, stay as long as you can," said Hughes, who spent one season at Barcelona.

"I made the mistake of thinking 'I'll just go for a couple of years and I'll be back home and continue my career' which is totally the wrong approach.

"When you get the opportunity to go to a club such as Barcelona or Real Madrid you've got to go with the intention that you're going to try and stay there for as long as you can until they actually kick you out of the door."

The final four

Whoever comes out of the hat for the semi-final draw on Friday we are guaranteed some huge ties. Real v Bayern? Real v Barca? Bayern v Barca?

Juventus are the fourth name on the list, for sure. But they may have Paul Pogba back to full fitness by then and they could beat anyone on the day.

The semi-finals are set to be played on 5/6 May and then 12/13 May.

John Fahey: Only team with any class and integrity in the semi-finals is Bayern.

Rob Scibetta: Forza Juve! Back among the elite where we belong!!

Iliyasa Khan: I wish to meet with any club except Barca #HalaMadrid

Ahmed Khwaja: Could be the most tense semi-final in ages. I hope Bayern and Barca don't play each other - would be the ideal final! Two quality sides, that thrive off brilliant build up play.

Eddie: If Real and Barca didn't take the bulk of La Liga's TV money, they won't be as strong as they currently are at home and in Europe!

Helles Mammut: Arda Turan should have been sent off way earlier for his elbow in the face of Coentrao. Ref was very lenient with Atletico

SprightlyCFC: Chicharito deserves the spotlight tonight, he is a clinical finisher and one can only ponder why Van Gaal doesn't rate him.

'He is a real professional'

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti: "Tonight we played a good game, we had good control. We didn't give them a chance to counter attack.

"We found the right solution in the last minutes. Of course the sending off made a difference, I don't know if it was right or not. It was a game with intensity but the players showed good fair play.

"Javier Hernandez was fantastic. He played really well and he deserved the goal. He hasn't played a lot this season but when I needed him he was ready. He is a real professional."

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Danny Mills

"Atletico just got caught out for one moment. They had been so disciplined but it only takes one piece of magic or a mistake and at this stage you are out. They had no chance to get back into the game."

Football League update

Reading 0-1 Birmingham

Birmingham hang on to win at the Madejski Stadium.

There's no Emile Heskey in La Liga though Neil is there?

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Neil Lennon

Former Celtic manager on BBC Radio 5 live

It may not have been the most entertaining of games, but Neil Lennon says it was not a reflection on the Spanish league as a whole.

"La Liga is predominantly the strongest league in the world. It's far more enjoyable than most other leagues and nowhere near comparable to Serie A in the 1990s."

Stephen Fawcett: Semi finalists feel very 1990s. Just missing Man United

Alex Haworth: Anyone wondering why the Premier League gets the biggest tv deals just needed to watch the Real-Atletico game. Awful.

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates
Reuters

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored more than 50 goals this season but tonight's assist was also his 19th of the season.

Decent.

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

To clarify Neil Lennon's comments there - he was asked about any perceived 'attitude problem' for Cristiano Ronaldo as he didn't celebrate with Javier Hernandez for the winner but ran off on his own. A team player? I'd have him in any team I was picking.

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Neil Lennon

Former Celtic manager on BBC Radio 5 live

"I agree with Danny Mills. The change in system may have cost Atletico. It will be interesting to see Diego Simeone's comments.

"In terms of Ronaldo - he is the best player in the world. Sometimes you have to let him do his thing. He is the most important player to Real Madrid."

Matt Mason: Real got gifted that. If Arda Turan was still on the pitch, it would be going to Extra Time right now.

Phil Johnson: PLEASE bring Javier Hernandez back to United. All he does is score goals.

Football League update

Reading 0-1 Birmingham

Clayton Donaldson has put Birmingham ahead with seven minutes to go. A dead rubber comes alive.

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Danny Mills

BBC Radio 5 live

"I feel the change to formation that Diego Simeone made might have unsettled Atletico's defensive unit. Simeone is undoubtedly a fantastic coach, but did he get that wrong?

"We could almost have had injury time as long as extra-time with all the antics. It happens in Spanish football. I said I thought Real Madrid might edge it - they had the better chances."

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Jose Maria Gimenez looks dejected

Atletico Madrid deserve huge credit for their performances this season but they were rather disappointing tonight. Did they do enough? Or were they happy to play for penalties from the off?

SEMI-FINALS

Looking forward to these? The draw is on Friday.

BARCELONA

REAL MADRID

JUVENTUS

BAYERN MUNICH

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Some heartache etched into the faces of the Atleti players but their limited approach left them with nowhere to go once Javier Hernandez had put Real ahead. It looked nailed on for a penalty shootout but Hernandez stabbed Real through.

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Koke takes out Dani Carvajal - that's a nasty one and that's a booking. Into the last two minutes. Real about to win a derby for the first time this season. At the eighth attempt.

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Alvaro Arbeloa - who only came on 90 seconds ago - is booked for booting the ball out. This could yet kick-off, it's ill-tempered as Diego Simeone waves his men up the field.

Lfcway (see 85 mins): These are the type of goals Hernandez will score all day long.

Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 1-0)

Raul Garcia hits a shot over on the spin at the other end. Javier Hernandez goes down with some well-timed cramp, the Mexican will become a hero for Real if that goal takes them through.

Javier Hernandez scores

"It will be a huge relief for Javier Hernandez. He's had four decent opportunities. Cristiano Ronaldo has been subdued but it was his run which made the goal, they couldn't live with his pace."

GOAL

Chicharito Hernández has scored more goals than any other Mexican player in Champions League history

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!

Real Madrid get the breakthrough and it is Cristiano Ronaldo who brings the scalpel. He surgically cuts inside the tired defence and squares it for Javier Hernandez. He's missed some chances but that's a tap-in. Huge goal. Huge celebrations.

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 0-0)

Danny Mills

"That change makes Atletico even more defensive. You just worry, with Mandzukic limping, if Atletico have the players and fitness to get through extra-time. Their formation is almost 5-2-2 now."

Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg: 0-0)

It's just hang on now from Atletico. Nobody further forward than 30 yards from their own goal. Peter Crouch or John Hartson [see 77 mins] would both be good options for Real Madrid now...
