Good night

Let's call it a night there. A good day for Barcelona and Paris St-Germain. A terrible day for Gary Neville. And somewhere in between for most of the others.

FULL-TIME - Marseille 1-2 PSG

Paris Saint Germain celebrates

Paris St-Germain win Le Classique. They are now 13 games away from being the first side to ever go a Ligue 1 side unbeaten.

They are 24 points clear at the top again.

Marseille 1-2 PSG

Steven Fletcher wins a header...

But concedes a free-kick after fouling his marker.

Marseille 1-2 PSG

Marseille have another chance as Romain Alessandrini lines one up from outside the box but he fires it just wide.

He could have played in Steven Fletcher...

INJURY TIME

Marseille 1-2 PSG

Four minutes of added time.

Marseille 1-2 PSG

Marseille almost rescue a late draw. The hosts counter after a PSG attack, Remy Cabellla plays in Georges-Kevin N'Koudou and he takes a heavy touch before firing wide of the far post. Steven Fletcher was in the centre...

YELLOW CARD

Marseille 1-2 PSG

PSG midfielder Thiago Motta is the first player booked tonight - for fouling Georges-Kevin N'Koudou.

One yellow card? And you call this French football's big rivalry?

Three minutes to go but it's Paris St-Germain doing most of the attacking now. Will Steven Fletcher get a chance for Marseille?

SUBSTITUTION

PSG break quickly and Maxwell fires a shot wide at the far post from Edinson Cavani's cross.

Marseille make a change now as Bouna Sarr replaces Brice Dja Djedje.

Remy Cabella heads a cross over for Marseille. If ever there was a chance for Steven Fletcher and not the playmaker...

Seven minutes to go.

SUBSTITUTION

Marseille 1-2 PSG

Marquinhos does eventually get on for Paris St-Germain but it's for midfielder Blaise Matuidi, not David Luiz.

Marseille 1-2 PSG

The first thing Steven Fletcher does as a Ligue 1 player is win a free-kick as Thiago Silva barges him down from behind.

SUBSTITUTION

Marseille 1-2 PSG

Alright, here we go! Marseille bring on Steven Fletcher, on loan from Sunderland, for his debut in French football. Michy Batshuayi is the man to come off.

Steven Fletcher warms up

Joe Wedgwood: You're 2-1 down to the mighty PSG. Ibra, Di Maria, Cavani are running wild. Only one man can save you. Steven Fletcher...

Marseille 1-2 PSG

The home fans aren't happy. David Luiz is off the pitch injured and Paris St-Germain are trying to bring him off for Marquinhos. Luiz either doesn't see it or ignores it and comes back onto the pitch and immediately sets up an attack with PSG winning a corner.

It looks like he's going to stay on now. Marquinhos was literally just about to come on. Really bizarre.

This would see Paris St-Germain go 24 points top of Ligue 1 again. By my calculations they could still win the league this month.

You kind of feel that's karma for Marseille fans throwing plastic bottles at him. Zlatan Ibrahimovic squares it to Angel di Maria, who steps inside a defender and steers the ball into the bottom corner of the net.

Marseille 1-1 PSG

Angel di Maria goes to take a corner... but there's loads of plastic bottles being thrown at him. He steps into the pitch, away from the corner flag, but then goes back out to throw them away and take the kick. It's not a great corner.

SUBSTITUTION

Marseille 1-1 PSG

Paris St-Germain do bring on Edinson Cavani for Lucas out wide. 

Still no sign of Steven Fletcher coming on for Marseille.

Marseille 1-1 PSG

Edinson Cavani appears to be washing his long hair on the sidelines while PSG wait to bring him on.

Marseille 1-1 PSG

Twenty five minutes to go and it's still level between these rivals. Remy Cabella has a shot deflected towards the PSG keeper from a similar range to his first-half strike.

Granada 1-2 Real Madrid

That was Real Madrid's first away win in La Liga for the first time since November when they beat Eibar 2-0.

Marseille 1-1 PSG

And now we'll turn our attentions to the Velodrome as Zlatan Ibrahimovic shins one over for Paris St-Germain.

Granada 1-2 Real Madrid

The final whistle was actually blown while medics came on to treat Marcelo. They're still seeing to him now. I take my cynicism back if he is hurt.

Real Madrid move to within four points of leaders Barcelona thanks to a very hard-fought win over Granada - and a late Luka Modric thunderbolt.

The hosts, who were unlucky not to draw, remain second from bottom.

Granada 1-2 Real Madrid

Real defender Marcelo is rolling around on the ground in 'agony'. Just killing the final seconds here.

Granada 1-2 Real Madrid

Eight of Luka Modric's nine goals for Real have been scored from outside the penalty box.

INJURY TIME

Granada 1-2 Real Madrid

Three minutes added on.

Granada 1-2 Real Madrid

We're into the final minute now and Granada don't really look like they're going to force a second equaliser.

Granada must be disappointed with the way that was conceded. Referee is clearly supposed to be marking Modric but left him all alone.

SUBSTITUTION

Granada 1-2 Real Madrid

And now Zinedine Zidane makes his final Real Madrid change, Nacho replacing Dani Carvajal - booked a couple of minutes ago - at right-back.

GOAL - Granada 1-2 Real Madrid

Luka Modric (85 mins)

Surely that is the winner for Real Madrid. Luka Modric absolutely rifles one into the top corner from 25 yards. That's his first La Liga goal of the season and it's a crucial one. 

Unfortunate on Granada.

Granada 1-1 Real Madrid

Mateo Kovacic picks out Karim Benzema, but the Frenchman's cross is over everyone. There's only six minutes left for Real to find a winner.

YELLOW CARD

Real Madrid right-back Dani Carvajal pulls Ruben Rochina back - properly holds onto his top like a child screaming at his mother in a supermarket. Yellow card.

Granada 1-1 Real Madrid

Watford signed two players on transfer deadline day - Adalberto Penaranda and Abdoulaye Doucoure. Granada have just brought on Doucoure for Penaranda.

Marseille 1-1 PSG

Second half is under way at the Velodrome. We'll cover Le Classique in depth once the La Liga game is over.

Granada 1-1 Real Madrid

Real Madrid bring on Mateo Kovacic for Isco in midfield now. Twelve minutes to go.

Real Madrid's Jese has a shot - his first major impact since coming on - but it's deflected out for a corner.

Cristiano Ronaldo heads the corner wide.
