HITS THE WOODWORK

Monaco 3-0 Nice

Nice's Valentin Eysseric hits the post, although it matters for little now.

SUBSTITUTION

Monaco 3-0 Nice

No hat-trick for Monaco captain Radamel Falcao as he's replaced to a great ovation by 18-year-old Kylian Mbappe.

Fernando Torres has given Atletico Madrid the lead against Leganes, netting the rebound after Antoine Griezmann's penalty was saved. That's his first league goal since September.

Monaco 3-0 Nice

Monaco keeper Danijel Subasic could have had a snooze today but he remains awake and just as well he was to keep out Alassane Plea's close-range header in the closing stages. 

Monaco 3-0 Nice

Monaco are the second European team to score 100 goals in all competitions this season. Barcelona beat them to it about 90 minutes ago.

GOAL - Monaco 3-0 Nice

Radamel Falcao

Monaco have taken control of the Ligue 1 title race in some style here. Radamel Falcao guides home his second goal of the game and Nice are vanquished.

Monaco 2-0 Nice

Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim brings off their first scorer Valere Germain for midfielder Joao Moutinho. Only 12 minutes for them to see this out.

Monaco 2-0 Nice

Mario Balotelli wins a free-kick for Nice... but them just blams it into the wall in front of him.

Borussia Dortmund have just kicked off their game with RB Leipzig. A win for the visitors would take them to within one point of Bayern Munich.

Monaco 2-0 Nice

A great passing movement from Nice ends up with Younes Belhanda having a crack from 20 yards but it flies over the bar. Twenty minutes left.

Monaco 2-0 Nice

Never make a substitution on a corner? Nice completely switch off and Monaco take a quick corner which results in Radamel Falcao being an inch away from turning the ball home at his second post.

SUBSTITUTION

Monaco 2-0 Nice

Nice manager Lucien Favre rolls the dice (appropriate in Monaco perhaps) and midfielder Younes Belhanda, returning from injury, replaces teenage defender Malang Sarr.

GOAL - Monaco 2-0 Nice

Radamel Falcao

Surely Monaco are going clear in the race for the Ligue 1 title. Radamel Falcao - back to his prolific best this season - slides home Benjamin Mendy's left-wing cross and fires it into the roof of the net.

Monaco 0-0 Nice

Nice have attempted only one shot (none on target) in the first half against Monaco. They have not done worse in Ligue 1 this season.

Barcelona 3-0 Athletic Bilbao

This game is as dead as a dodo now. (Too soon?)

Athletic winger Inaki Williams blasts a shot into the side of the net.

HALF-TIME

Monaco 0-0 Nice

It's half-time at the Stade Louis II. Monaco and Nice can't be separated on points at the moment - and they can't be separated on goals in the first half either.

Max Bluer: Surprised #bbceurofooty hasn't mentioned that Athletic defender Yeray is making his comeback just 39 days afer surgery for testicular cancer

I knew you'd mention it for me, Max. Thanks! Read about his return on the Marca website here.

GOAL - Barcelona 3-0 Athletic Bilbao

Aleix Vidal (67 mins)

And that's that. Aleix Vidal channels his inner Lionel Messi and takes on three or four defenders before firing home.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

This doesn't happen too often. Lionel Messi is replaced as boss Luis Enrique considers this game won. He hands Javier Mascherano his armband and comes off for Sergi Roberto, who mostly plays at right-back but was a midfielder before that.

Neymar is the only one of Barca's main three forwards on the pitch now. Luis Suarez is an unused substitute. 

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

Athletic make a change in midfield as Mikel San Jose replaces Benat Etxebarria.

Barcelona 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

Lionel Messi tries to play a pass and three Athletic players run into each other while trying to clear it. It ends up with Messi again and his shot is into the side-netting.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

Athletic bring on Aritz Aduriz up front, with Inigo Lekue making way.

Could Celta v Real be postponed?

There's a lot of talk in Spain that Celta Vigo v Real Madrid's game tomorrow could be postponed because of stormy weather.

And in an extraordinary statement, Alaves - who play Celta in the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg on Thursday - have called for either tomorrow's game to go ahead somewhere else, or for their cup game to be rearranged so Vigo don't have extra time to prepare.

Read that here (in Spanish).

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

Barcelona make an enforced substitution - Rafinha got a Marc-Andre ter Stegen boot to the head and there's a lot of blood. On comes Ivan Rakitic.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona made a change at half-time as Javier Mascherano replaced Gerard Pique, who was booked in the first half.

Meanwhile, Rafinha has just headed wide for Barca at the far post.

FULL-TIME

Bayern Munich 1-1 Schalke

Bayern Munich are held by Schalke. If RB Leipzig can win at Borussia Dortmund later (17:30 GMT), the lead at the top could be down to one point.

Bayern Munich 1-1 Schalke

Kingsley Coman almost wins it at the death for Bayern Munich but as he prepares to turn the ball home from a yard, a Schalke boot somehow gets it clear.

KICK-OFF

Barcelona 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

The second half in Catalonia is under way. 

Athletic have managed seven shots so far, the most of any team in the first half at the Nou Camp in La Liga this season.

Monaco 0-0 Nice

Radamel Falcao has the ball again, this time he's not offside, but he heads wide from Benjamin Mendy's left-wing cross.

He has scored a goal every 86 minutes in Ligue 1 this season (before today).

Monaco 0-0 Nice

Nice clear after a bit of pin ball in the box, Monaco get it back but Radamel Falcao is in an offside position. Neither side really on top at the moment.

Bayern Munich 1-1 Schalke

Xabi Alonso, making his 100th Bayern Munich appearance today, flashes a 20-yard volley over the bar. That would have been his 10th goal. That's a nice symmetry we could all have enjoyed.

Monaco 0-0 Nice

Monaco have the best chance so far as Bernardo Silva fires in an effort from outside the box but it's easily saved by Nice keeper Yoan Cardinale - that's the first target of the game.
