- Las Palmas score late on to hold Real
- Barcelona thrash Sporting Gijon 5-0
- Real's lead at top of La Liga cut to one point
Real Madrid drop points again, then, as Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane fail to see eye to eye. The full report is now up on the BBC website - I'll leave you with that. Thanks for your company. See you again soon.
Four more matches to come in La Liga tomorrow - the pick of which sees Atletico Madrid, sneaking up the table after a slow start, at home to Deportivo La Coruna. Plenty of significance going on at the bottom of the table too. Bottom club Osasuna travel to Villarreal, third-from-bottom Valencia - who won in midweek - are at promoted Leganes, while fourth-from-bottom Celta Vigo visit Espanyol.
One full-time score to bring you from Serie A - Napoli have beaten Chievo 2-0 tonight, with goals from Manolo Gabbiadini and Maerk Hamsik. Mauricio Sarri's side are once again just a point behind Juventus, who had extended that lead briefly earlier in the day by winning 1-0 at Palermo.
An eventful day in La Liga: Of the four games played today, Las Palmas v Real Madrid was the only one without a red card.
Earlier, Barcelona - minus the injured Lionel Messi - won 5-0 at 10-man Sporting Gijon, while Eibar defeated 10-man Real Sociedad 2-0. And did I tell you about the game that ended with an outfield player in goal? Well...
Frustration for Real Madrid who, having won 16 La Liga games in succession, have now drawn two in a row. But despite dropping four points in a week, they are back on top. Las Palmas' point takes them back up to fifth.
For anyone who needs reminding why it is not a good idea to mess with Zinedine Zidane, here's a photo from our archives.
The Twitter verdict is in on Zinedine Zidane's decision to take off Cristiano Ronaldo with under 20 minutes left:
Andy White: The eyeballs were definitely alpha male v alpha male. Personally more scared of Zizou than CR7.
In fact it's Las Palmas who end the game on the attack. Kiko Casilla surges out of his penalty area, possibly uses his arm to clear... amid loud appeals from the home support, the referee decides the most sensible course of action is to blow for full-time.
...It's a chance - but Isco heads over. That could be that.
Lucas Vazquez down the right for Dani Carvajal to cross...
One last chance for Real Madrid...
They could have won it late again, the visitors. Dani Carvajal swings over a cross from the right towards an unmarked Karim Benzema at the far post. It's set nicely for a sweet sidefoot volley - but the France striker cannot get his foot over the ball. It sails over, to great cheers from the home fans.
Remember that Real Madrid scored a late winner in this fixture last season. Remember too that Casemiro, the player who scored it, is out injured at the moment. Four minutes of stoppage time to add.
Quique Setien, the Las Palmas coach, eyes a point. Striker Marko Livaja is taken off; defender Mauricio Lemos is his replacement.
Real have to go for it now; Luka Modric blasts in a shot from outside the penalty area, but Javi Varas takes it.
Well, I didn't see that one coming, as they say at Psychic Monthly. It's reward for persistence from the substitute Sergio Araujo, who bundles the ball past Kiko Casilla and runs it over the line after Vicente Gomez cushions a header forward. Real's defence is all over the place. Araujo is ecstatic.
Gareth Bale is still regaining full fitness after his recent injury troubles - and let's not forget that he had a busy summer with Wales too. The forward, who is labouring a bit now, gets a little frustrated as he strays marginally offside to halt a promising attack down the left, and whacks the ball away. He can just about claim that he was trying to play the cross and did not hear the whistle, and I suspect that is why he avoids the booking.
Las Palmas struggling to stay in the game now. David Garcia whacks a very tired clearance about 500 miles up in the air; when the ball drops, it falls behind for a corner. Sergio Ramos has been a significant threat at set-pieces for Real this season, but the home side keep him and his team-mates at bay this time. One more Real change; Isco is on for Alvaro Morata.
As Ronaldo frowns on the bench, team-mate Dani Carvajal hacks down Tana and gets a yellow card. Las Palmas, who haven't created much in this second half - and who have not forced a corner all evening - cannot make anything significant of the free-kick.
Erica Jane Archer: It just a few more years, Ronaldo will start to lose his legs. That will be a sad day. With his ego, it will be ugly. :(
Well, here's an interesting change. With just under 20 minutes left, Cristiano Ronaldo gets the hook. Perhaps it was a pre-arranged substitution to keep him fresh for the midweek Champions League trip to face Borussia Dortmund. The gloomy look on Ronaldo's face suggests otherwise. There's no eye contact with Zinedine Zidane as he leaves the field. It's Lucas Vazquez who is on.
Karim Benzema is almost through again; Las Palmas are starting to leave gaps. Keeper Varas is off his line, to the left corner of his penalty area, and times the feet-first sliding challenge like a master.
The substitution pays off for Zinedine Zidane. Alvaro Morata's through pass plays Cristiano Ronaldo clear. It's a chance the Portugal captain would be expected to take - th eshot is weak, but Javi Varas cannot hold it, and Benzema sweeps in the rebound. Not the most convincing finish; indeed, it's not been the most convincing night from Real, but they're in the right position now.
Benzema is on, and it's Marco Asensio who makes way. Immediately, the France forward has a chance six yards out as Raphael Varane glances a corner to him - but he looks rusty, and can only poke goalwards tamely - it's straight at keeper Javi Varas.
Patient build-up from Las Palmas as they probe for a second goal. The ball is worked to Vicente Gomez 20 yards out, but the shot is a trundler, more suited to the ten-pin bowling alley. It's no trouble for Kiko Casilla to gather. Meanwhile, Karim Benzema is warming up for Real Madrid, ready to come on.
Nabil El Zhar is into the game. The Moroccan lifts a neat pass infield from the right touchline, and it's the right-back Michel speeding forward. Unsure what to do, the Brazilian just wellies the ball as hard as he can. I wouldn't be surprised if he closed his eyes when he did it. The ball flies nowhere near the goal.
I did question earlier whether Toni Kroos had the physical aggression to play in a defensive midfield role for Real Madrid. He answers me by barging into the back of Vicente Gomez and collecting a booking.
Gareth Bale runs at the home defence again. As the yellow-shirted defenders crowd around him, he slides a pass through to Cristiano Ronaldo - who is offside as he goes round the keeper and finishes. It's not happening for Ronaldo yet. Still time, though.
Las Palmas are down to 10 men for a couple of minutes as they did not have a substitute warmed up and ready. Real try to press their advantage, but let the home side off the hook as Sergio Ramos is penalised for a handball. Las Palmas captain David Garcia demands a booking for Ramos - and instead gets one himself for dissent.
Nabil El Zhar, the former Liverpool forward, is now on for Viera. Las Palmas are back up to 11.
Aggressive attacking play for Real in the early stages of the second half. A lovely run by Luka Modric sets up a chance for Cristiano Ronaldo, who wants one or two touches to many; his shot is blocked.
Problem here for Las Palmas' Jonathan Viera. It looks as if he has pulled up with a hamstring injury. The attacking midfielder limps to the touchline and, by the looks of it, out of the match.
Remember the Southampton and Las Palmas supporter we heard about towards the end of the first half? We've found another one.
John Shaw: There's another Saints / UDLP fan! Watched their promotion game in the days of Vinnie 'The Beast' Samways.
It's the same high tempo as the first half. Cristiano Ronaldo breaks down the left and squares for Gareth Bale to strike first time from 20 yards. Keeper Javi Varas saves well, and Marco Asensio is correctly flagged offside as he tries to head in the rebound.
We're back under way at Estadio Gran Canaria. The players have just about got their breath back.
Six games were played in Germany's Bundesliga earlier today, with significant results at the top and bottom. Leaders Bayern Munich left it very late to maintain their 100% record under Carlo Ancelotti, beating winless Hamburg 1-0 thanks to Joshua Kimmich's 88th-minute goal.
At the bottom, Werder Bremen collected their first points of the season, beating Wolfsburg 2-1 with a 91st-minute winner from Theodor Gebre Selassie.
It's a significant evening at the top of the table in Italy too. Juventus, who regained the leadership in midweek, extended their lead to four points earlier today with a 1-0 victory at Palermo.
Napoli, the team Juve replaced at the summit, are halfway to cutting that lead back to a single point, however. They lead Chievo 2-0 at half-time, with goals from Manolo Gabbiadini - who Everton tried to sign last month - and Marek Hamsik.
Worth remembering that a point will be enough to take Real Madrid back to the top of La Liga tonight. Barcelona lead the way on goal difference, although that is a bit misleading. Teams level on points in Spain's top flight are separated first by head-to-head record - the goal difference only comes into play because Barca and Real have not yet played each other this season.
Well, that was a thoroughly entertaining opening 45 minutes. Las Palmas aren't scared of their illustrious visitors, and responded superbly after going behind. All to play for. Let's hope the second half lives up to the first.
Jay: That celebration from Tana deserved that goal.
