Juventus 3-2 Fiorentina

Juventus are simply unstoppable in Serie A. The Old Lady are close to sealing a fourth consecutive Serie A title as Carlos Tevez scores his second of the evening.

Italian Serie A

Remember Parma's glory days of the late 1980's? Well, they are long gone.

Italy international Gianfranco Zola and South American stars Faustino Asprilla and Hernan Crespo helped ensure the Italian city became synonymous with football, taking them to a Uefa Cup success 20 years ago.

This evening they are dropping out of Serie A it appears with their future very much in doubt due to cash worries. Sad times.

Arminia Bielefeld 0-4 Wolfsburg

German Cup

Arminia Bielefeld are plugging away valiantly in the German Cup semi-final but Wolfsburg have simply had too much for them this evening. The third-tier club trail 4-0 with 11 minutes to go. No fairy tale here.

Latest in Italy

Italian Serie A

Perhaps Parma aren't quite down yet.

Cesena's Franco Brienza levels from the penalty spot against Atalanta. As results stand, Parma are down but another Cesena goal and they get a stay of execution. Only temporarily though surely?

Mark, Newcastle, on text: Ronaldo only caring about himself again whereas Messi is more of a team player. Much more respect for the Argentine.

The dream is over for Arminia Bielefeld.

Borussia Dortmund are already in the final.

FULL-TIME

Real Madrid 3-0 Almeria

Job done for Real Madrid. They move to within two points of La Liga leaders Barcelona.

It was far from flowing but it is all about results at this stage of the season.

Real Madrid 3-0 Almeria

Inches away from a fourth as Isco volleys Jese's cross just wide.

Real Madrid 3-0 Almeria

It just isn't Cristiano Ronaldo's night as he heads Jese's cross over the bar. Two minutes of injury time signalled.

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 3-0 Almeria

Martin Odegaard is going to have to wait to make history. The 16-year-old won't become Real's youngest ever player this evening as he is left on the substitutes bench.

Nacho replaces Raphael Varane as Real's final change.

GOAL

Real Madrid 3-0 Almeria - Alvaro Arbeloa

Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't look particularly happy as Alvaro Arbeloa beats him to Javier Hernandez's cross to seal the victory for Real. That is Arbeloa's first league goal since 2008.

Real Madrid 2-0 Almeria

Jese breaks down the right but his attempted square ball is scrambled away by Angel Trujillo. Javier Hernandez and Cristiano Ronaldo were waiting.

Real Madrid 2-0 Almeria

Almeria are playing some nice enough stuff around the edge of Real's penalty area but, every time they threaten, their final product is shocking.

Talking about poor, Cristiano Ronaldo wildly fires a shot into row z from 25 yards. Ronaldo has had nine attempts on goal this evening and without success so far.

Juventus 2-1 Fiorentina

Italian Serie A

Carlos Tevez gives Juventus the lead on the stroke of half time. It won't be enough to win the title yet though as Lazio lead Parma 3-0. Parma are down as results stand.

Real Madrid 2-0 Almeria

Into the last 15 minutes and Real Madrid look certain to be closing the gap to Barcelona at the top of La Liga to two points. The hosts are pressing for more, Almeria look ready to go home,

CLOSE!

Juventus 1-1 Fiorentina

Italian Serie A

Gonzalo Rodriguez gives Fiorentina a surprise lead from the penalty spot but Fernando Llorente levels for Serie A leaders Juventus. The Old Lady will have to wait for the title though with Lazio beating Parma 3-0.

CLOSE!

Real Madrid 2-0 Almeria

That is very poor by Cristiano's Ronaldo's standards. The forward drags a shot wide of goal after being played through by Isco. Should have scored.

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 2-0 Almeria

Just one more chance for Martin Odegaard to become Real's youngest ever player this evening as Asier Illarramendi is replaced by Lucas Silva. Will the Norwegian be the third and final sub?

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 2-0 Almeria

James Rodriguez is replaced to a decent ovation by Isco. The Colombian deserves the applause for his opener alone.

Real Madrid 2-0 Almeria

Almeria's Mauro Dos Santos definitely got the final touch for Real's second goal. That was why no celebration from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Paul Collins: Hernandez has abysmal control of a ball. Real Madrid won't keep him. They can sign better.

Real Madrid 2-0 Almeria

A lovely curling ball from the right by Almeria's Mane is just about cleared away from in front of his own goal by Pepe. Credit to the visitors, they aren't giving up.

Arminia Bielefeld 0-2 Wolfsburg

German Cup

Luiz Gustavo has added to Max Arnold's opener to put Wolfsburg in total control in the German Cup semi-final against third tier Arminia Bielefeld. Borussia Dortmund await the winner in the final.

Don't be surprised to see Real get near Barcelona's six goals from last night. It is one-way traffic at the start of this half and the hosts finally look hungry for goals.

AC Milan fans are protesting at the San Siro tonight. Their match at home to Genoa is already under way and since the shot above was taken supporters have arranged themselves into a shape spelling the Italian word 'basta', which means 'enough'.

The Rossoneri are enduring their worst season since 1997-98 and are currently in 10th.

Latest from Italy

Italian Serie A

It looks like being a miserable end to a miserable season for Parma. They are now 3-0 down to Lazio within 20 minutes thanks to Antonio Candreva's strike. If they lose, they are down unless Atalanta lose to Cesena. It is currently 0-0.

GOAL

Real Madrid 2-0 Almeria - Mauro dos Santos (own goal)

Cristiano Ronaldo is standing in an offside position but he gets away with it as he looks to tap home Toni Kroos's low cross from the right. Almeria's Mauro dos Santos gets there first though for an own goal.

Peter Collins: I really hope he gets on, but who exactly does Odegaard replace in Real's team? Would Ancelotti want to change anything?

Paul Collins: Odegaard won't get on! He's only on bench to satisfy his contactual clauses and stop him and his dad moaning.
