  1. Post update

    Ok gentlefolk, that concludes a riveting evening of European football, I'm sure you'll agree. Earlier on, Juventus 3-2 Roma was a real humdinger with spectacular goals, dodgy penalties and some good old-fashioned fisty-cuffs. In the battle between France's big spenders, Monaco popped in a late goal to deny PSG, and over in the Spanish capital it was normal service as Real Madrid thrashed Athletic Bilbao 5-0 to take their tally to 20 in their last four league games. We'll catch you for more of the same after the international break. Au revoir!

  2. FULL-TIME

    Italian Serie A

    Tonight's action in Italy's Serie A is all over too.

    Fiorentina cruise to 3-0 home win against Inter Milan after Nenad Tomovic adds to first-half goals from Khouma Babacar and Juan Cuadrado.

    Napoli have suffered a difficult start to the Serie A campaign but managed to gain some respite for boss Rafa Benitez with a comeback win against Torino. The visitors led through ex-Napoli forward Fabio Quagliarella before Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Maria Callejon turned the game around in the second half.

  3. FULL-TIME

    Paris St-Germain 1-1 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    French Ligue 1 table

    A smattering of boos can be heard from the PSG fans who are frustrated at their team's sixth (yes, SIXTH) draw of the Ligue 1 season.

    The point is enough to move Laurent Blanc's side up to third, but the defending champions are already seven points behind a Marseille side revitalised under Argentine tactician Marcelo Bielsa.

  4. Post update

    Spanish La Liga

    Real Madrid's fourth league victory on the bounce takes them up to fourth in the table, above their city rivals Atletico and four points behind leaders Barcelona.

    #bbceurofooty

    Alex Haworth: Most players are happy if they score just one goal in the game. Ronaldo only seems satisfied when he gets the hat-trick.

  6. Ruthless Ronaldo

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Here's a round-up of Ronaldo's frankly ludicrous numbers. The Portuguese number seven has now scored 26 hat-tricks for Real Madrid and three in the last 15 days. He has 13 goals in six league games and 17 in all competitions.

  7. FULL-TIME

    Paris St-Germain 1-1 Monaco

    There's almost time for Monaco to nick a shock winner, but Salvatore Sirigu gratefully clutches a low shot to his chest. Moments later the final whistle goes - vital point for the visitors!

  8. GOAL

    Paris St-Germain 1-1 Monaco - Anthony Martial (90+2 mins)

    On a day packed full of European drama, it is rather fitting that Monaco silence the Parc Des Princes with a late, late equaliser. Teenage substitute Anthony Martial scuffs past PSG stopper Salvatore Sirigu from close range. Doesn't matter how they go in....

  9. FULL-TIME

    Real Madrid 5-0 Athletic Bilbao

    The final whistle arrives to put the Basques out of their misery. It's a walk in the park for Real. Three for Ronaldo, two for Benzema and plenty of missed chances besides.

  10. GOAL

    Real Madrid 5-0 Athletic Bilbao - Ronaldo (89 mins)

    It's the hat-trick, but this one is a bit lucky. Marcelo's shot seems to deflect off Ronaldo's arm before nestling in the corner of the Athletic Bilbao net. They all count, and Ronaldo now has 17 goals this season and three hat-tricks in his last four league games.

  11. TEN TO GO

    Paris St-Germain 1-0 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    Monaco have held their own for long periods of this Ligue 1 match but they are set to return to the principality with nothing - unless they can dig out a late equaliser. Just under 10 minutes to do it...

  12. Post update

    Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao

    James Rodriguez goes down in the box. Will this be Ronaldo's chance from the spot? No, it's a blatant dive, and to his credit James doesn't even appeal. The ball makes its way to Bale whose shot is straight at Iraizoz.

  13. Post update

    Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Spanish La Liga

    This really is like a training game for Real. Watching Bilbao it seems extraordinary that this team finished fourth last season. Iraizoz saves one-handed to deny Bale then Ronaldo drives wide from the edge of the area.

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao

    No hat-trick for Karim Benzema today as he is replaced by Isco, who scored twice in this fixture last season.

  15. Post update

    Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Only Iraizoz is preventing this from becoming a cricket score, with Ronaldo in the role of WG Grace. Carvajal's cross picks out Ronaldo's head but his effort is brilliantly palmed aside by the 33-year-old stopper.

  16. Post update

    Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Shall we start a countdown to Cristiano's hat-trick? Two more chances for the golden boy, the latest of which is a powerful low drive that Iraizoz does well to keep out.

  17. GOAL

    Paris St-Germain 1-0 Monaco - Lucas Moura (71 mins)

    PSG's Lucas Moura celebrates the opening goal against Monaco

    Monaco's resistance is broken by the French champions. Despite being urged to shoot by the home fans, Jean-Christophe Bahebeck keeps his composure to slide a precise pass across the Monaco goal for an unmarked Lucas Moura to gleefully smash in the PSG opener.

  18. Get involved

    #bbceurofooty

    Bilal Ahmad: That's not the Ronaldo we know of. One on one but unselfish.

  19. GOAL

    Real Madrid 4-0 Athletic Bilbao - Benzema (69 mins)

    Like a knife through butter. Luka Modric easily penetrates the Bilbao defence to pick out Ronaldo's run. The only surprise is that the Portuguese superstar opts to pass rather than shoot, squaring the ball for Benzema to tap home.

    Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema celebrates his goal against Athletic Bilbao
  20. Post update

    Real Madrid 3-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Bale - 4-0! No, offside. Real size up their target for a while with some probing passing then go for the jugular as Marcelo whips a ball to the far post where Bale heads in. The linesman's flag denies the Welshman his sixth of the season.

  21. CLOSE!

    Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    And moments later it is Monaco who almost break the deadlock. Layvin Kurzawa, lurking at the far post, appears to have the easiest task of converting into the gaping PSG goal. But he doesn't bank on PSG right-back Gregory van der Wiel scrambling back to hook off his goal-line.

  22. CLOSE!

    Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    PSG are denied the opening goal by a wonderful reaction save from Monaco keeper Danijel Subasic. Young winger Jean-Christophe Bahebeck, a half-time substitute for Marco Verratti, tries to catch him out by shooting from a tight angle, only for the Croatian to acrobatically push over his crossbar.

  23. Post update

    Real Madrid 3-0 Athletic Bilbao

    I sense a Bale goal might be coming here. Ronaldo squares to the Welsh winger, who cuts across a drive from the edge of the box and stings the fingertips of Iraizoz. By the way, Ronaldo is one goal away from his third hat-trick in four league games.

  24. Post update

    Real Madrid 3-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Spanish La Liga

    Real are showboating now. Benzema's cute back-heel tees up Bale on the edge of the area but he curls is shot narrowly wide.

    Athletic counter with their best chance of the game. Ibai Gomez creeps in at the far post to meet a cross with his head and Casillas expertly turns his effort around the post.

  25. GOAL

    Real Madrid 3-0 Athletic Bilbao - Ronaldo (55 mins)

    Absolutely ruthless again from Real. Bale exchanges passes with Benzema then crosses low for Ronaldo, who has a simple tap-in from four yards. I wonder if Brendan Rodgers is watching ahead of Liverpool's Champions League meetings with Real. Good luck with your tactics Bren.

    Cristiano Ronaldo scores his second for Real Madrid
  26. KICK-OFF

    Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    Back under way in Paris as injured skipper Thiago Silva settles into his padded seat for the second half.

  27. Post update

    Real Madrid 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Spanish La Liga

    Ancelotti runs his fingers through his grey mane of hair as Bilbao start the half on the front foot. It's not long, though, before Real are carving out another great opening. Ronaldo places the ball into the path of Bale, but Laporte does brilliantly to throw himself towards to the ball and hurry the Welshman into a finish that flies high and wide.

  28. GOAL

    Napoli 1-1 Torino - Lorenzo Insigne

    Italian Serie A

    Is that a huge sigh of relief I can hear all the way from Naples? I'm sure it is. Rafa Benitez will be relieved to see his side level against Torino through Lorenzo Insigne's thumping header.

    Napoli celebrate Lorenzo Insigne's goal
  29. KICK-OFF

    Real Madrid 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

    We're back under way in the Spanish capital. Rafael Varane replaces Sergio Ramos at half-time.

  30. Match stats

    Real Madrid 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Real Madrid only had five shots to Athletic's three in that half but they lead 2-0. That's what happens when you have world-class goalscorers like Ronaldo and Benzema in your ranks. The hosts had 57% of possession and barring a miracle look certain to be signing off for the international break in good order.

  31. Latest scores

    Italian Serie A

    While we reflect on the action in the Spanish and French capital cities, let's nip across the Mediterranean to find out what's happening in Italy.

    Fiorentina are leading 2-0 against Inter Milan after first-half goals from Khouma Babacar and Juan Cuadrado, who you may remember starred for Colombia in last summer's World Cup.

    And things are going from bad to worse for ex-Liverpool and Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez. His Napoli team, who finished third last season, have suffered a mixed start to the campaign and are now trailing 1-0 against visitors Torino.

    Khouma Babacar celebrates his goal for Fiorentina
  32. Player reaction

    Juventus 3-2 Roma

    Former England left-back Ashley Cole: The lads played well today and we were unlucky not to get a point. We'll bounce back after the break!

  33. Stat attack

    Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

    Opta Jean: The last four Ligue 1 games between PSG and Monaco have ended with a draw.

  34. HALF-TIME

    Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    And that effort, along with PSG midfielder Marco Verrati's push on Monaco rival Geoffrey Kondogbia (earning him a yellow card), is the last action of an entertaining first half. Delicately poised is this one.

    PSG manager Laurent Blanc
  35. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    The frame of the PSG is still rattling after Belgian midfielder Yannick Ferreira Carrasco smashes a first-time shot against the home crossbar. Best chance of the match in the dying moments of the first half.

  36. HALF-TIME

    Real Madrid 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Spanish La Liga

    The whistle goes in the Bernabeu to wrap up a very satisfying 45 minutes for Ancelotti and his merry men. As things stand, they look to be marching back towards the top four.

  37. Post update

    Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    Javier Pastore whips in a dangerous cross from the right which flashes across the Monaco goal. But no-one in dark blue is there to prod in.

    Minutes later, there is another let-off for the visitors. Another inviting centre, this time from Maxwell on the left, just skims the forehead of PSG striker Edinson Cavani and the ball flies harmlessly wide.

    PSG pressing for the opener.

  38. GOAL

    Real Madrid 2-0 Athletic Bilbao - Benzema (41 mins)

    Far too easy. Luka Modric's corner is a regulation delivery to the edge of the six yard box and Karim Benzema leaps above his marker to head down and in.

  39. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Ronaldo, oozing menace, cuts in from the left and squares for James Rodriguez, but the Colombian's first touch is heavy, as it has been all game, and Atletico win back the ball.

    Real Madrid playmaker Ronaldo
  40. Stat attack

    Opta Jose: Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 42 goals in his last 34 appearances in La Liga (1.2 goals per game)

  41. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Athletic Bilbao

    The linesman in Real's attacking half is having a very busy evening. This time it is Ronaldo who mis-times his run as he is put through on goal. At the other end Susaeta reaches the byline but his cross is wayward.

  42. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Spanish La Liga

    Things have settled down a bit in the Bernabeu. Athletic look a threat from set-pieces, Real look a threat whenever Ronaldo gets near the ball.

  43. Post update

    Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    PSG v Monaco

    David Luiz is often criticised for his defensive ability, but the ex-Chelsea man times a last-ditch tackle to perfection to stop Monaco bagging the opener.

    That comes moments after PSG appeal, unsuccessfully, for a penalty at the other end. Game wide open now.

    Festus Loti: Is it that defenders in La Liga are just bad because CR7 & Messi really make scoring look very simple.

    Real Madrid 1-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Another Athletic corner yields their first shot on goal. From the edge of the box Iker Muniain unleashes a volley that's tipped over by his namesake Casillas.

  46. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Athletic Bilbao

    A little spell of pressure from Athletic here as Ramos concedes back-to-back corner. From the second, Real break quickly and Ronaldo slides Benzema through, only for the Frenchman to be flagged offside again. Very marginal call that one.

    Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema
  47. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Spanish La Liga

    Oooh. Close again from Real. Ronaldo dinks Bale past the Athletic backline again and his low cross is inches away from Benzema's outstretched toe.

    Benat comes back on, with a heavy white bandage wrapped around his noggin. Carvajal also went off for treatment but there are no such adornments for him.

  48. Post update

    Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    Are Paris St-Germain determined to take the 'FC Hollywood' title away from Bayern Munich? Because joining USA athletics legend Carl Lewis in the Parc Des Princes stands is guitar/keyboard/drum hero Lenny Kravitz.

    And all this just days after one of the world's most famous couples - Jay-Z and Beyonce - joined ex-PSG midfielder David Beckham in the French capital. Celeb central.

    Back to the pitch...it is anything but glamorous. Still goalless.

  49. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Athletic Bilbao

    We have a stoppage because Benat's head is bleeding after a clash with Real full-back Carvajal. Incidentally, that was Ronaldo's 11th league goal of the season. This is Real's seventh game.

  50. Post update

    Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    Lively start by PSG, who have started at a pace that Carl Lewis would have been proud of in his hey-day. Italy midfielder Marco Verrati has their clearest sight on goal, blazing high over the Monaco crossbar.

  51. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Spanish La Liga

    This could be a turkey shoot. Gareth Bale gallops away down the right again and looks to feed Benzema on the edge of the six-yard box, but the Frenchman has strayed marginally offside.

  52. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Memo to Athletic Bilbao right-back. When CR7 makes a little dart towards goal do your best to stay with him...

    Here he is again, twisting Oscar de Marcos this way and that before firing a shot towards the near post, which Gorka Iraizoz tips round for a corner.

  53. KICK-OFF

    Paris St-Germain 0-0 Monaco

    French Ligue 1

    US athletics legend Carl Lewis strides out purposefully on to the Parc Des Princes pitch - like he is marching up to the starting line for the 1984 Olympics 100m final - to ceremonially kick off the game. I thought my eyes were deceiving me at first. They weren't.

    PSG striker Edinson Cavani laughs and claps Lewis's efforts before kicking off the action for real.

  54. GOAL

    Real Madrid 1-0 Athletic Bilbao - Ronaldo (3 mins)

    Normal service at the Berbabeu and this could be a long night for Athletic. Gareth Bale whips a perfect cross to the far post with his right foot and Cristiano Ronaldo applies the simplest of finishes with his forehead.

    Monaco are without everyone's favourite languid Bulgarian striker. Ex-Manchester United and Tottenham man Dimitar Berbatov is out of the trip to Paris with an ankle injury.

    The principality side are also without suspended midfielder Jeremy Toulalan.

    "The team has lost two important players," said Jardim. "But the most important is the team and the equilibrium. I have confidence in the players who will replace them."

    Paris St-Germain v Monaco (20:00 BST)

    French Ligue 1

    Last season, the matches between Paris St-Germain and Monaco were billed as a meeting of European football's nouveau riche. Not any more.

    While French champions PSG still have plenty of financial muscle, Monaco have seen daddy's credit card withdrawn. Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev has put a stop on their excessive spending, with big-money singings Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez both shipped out of Monte Carlo.

    Leonardo Jardim's new-look side languish in 12th after a woeful start, while PSG are still unbeaten this season. However, they are fourth having drawn five of their eight matches.

  58. Post update

    A victory for Real Madrid would take them above champions Atletico Madrid into fourth place, four points behind leaders Barcelona. Sevilla are third after dishing out a 4-1 spanking to Deportivo La Coruna earlier today.

  60. Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao (20:00 BST)

    The Basque side have let in 22 goals in their last five visits to the Bernabeu, where they haven't won since 2005. In their last 23 meetings, the sides have played out just one draw: a 1-1 at San Mames in February during which Cristiano Ronaldo picked up a red card.

  61. Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao (20:00 BST)

    Athletic, who finished fourth in last season's La Liga, have picked up one point in four league games and are currently languishing in 18th in the league standings. They also lie bottom of Champions League Group H, following a midweek 2-1 defeat by BATE Borisov.

  62. Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao (20:00 BST)

    Gareth Bale & Cristiano Ronaldo

    Can the Real resurgence continue? Since suffering back-to-back defeats early in the season, Carlo Ancelotti's side have won five matches in a row, and hammered in 22 goals in the process.

    And the bad news for Atletico Bilbao is that Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale have both recovered from minor injuries in time for tonight's encounter.

  63. Post update

    That wraps up all the major news from around the continent and leads us nicely into the second part of tonight's European adventure.

    Real Madrid, with their galaxy of superstars, will be our focus over the next couple of hours. We will sink our teeth into the Spanish giants' home match against Athletic Bilbao, as well as indulging in a rather generous side portion of Paris St-Germain v Monaco in France.

    Four minutes of stoppage time. Surely, surely, there isn't another twist in the tale?

  83. RED CARDS

    Juventus 3-2 Roma

    Uh oh. It is all kicking off. Juve striker Alvaro Morata slides in on Roma defender Kostas Manolas, who loses the plot completely as he pushes, shoves and goes head to head with the Spaniard.

    That sparks a 30-man melee involving virtually every player on the pitch and plenty of those stood in both technical areas. The result? Red cards apiece for Morata and Manolas.

  84. GOAL

    Juventus 3-2 Roma - Leonardo Bonucci

    A goal worthy of winning any match. Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci shows the technique of a seasoned striker to blast the home side ahead. A home corner is cleared by Roma only as far as the Italy international, who keeps his eye on the ball and expertly volleys into the bottom corner.

  85. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Juventus 2-2 Roma

    Juventus almost nick it! Substitute Alvaro Morata climbs above the Roma defence to meet Stephan Lichtsteiner's teasing right-wing cross. Roma keeper Lukasz Skorupski remains rooted to the Turin turf and is grateful to see the Spaniard's effort clip the top of his crossbar.

  86. TEN TO GO

    Juventus 2-2 Roma

    End to end as both sides search for a winner. Juventus press at one end before Roma substitute Destro's intended pass to Florenzi is cut out at the other. Can anyone force a fifth goal?

  87. Post update

    Juventus 2-2 Roma

    Juventus v Roma

    Ooof! Almost a fourth penalty of the match. Roma forward Gervinho skips down the right channel of the box and Kwadwo Asamoah almost - almost - sticks out a dangerous foot. He reigns himself in and then watches Gervinho unable to dig out a telling cross.

  88. SUBSTITUTION

    Juventus 2-2 Roma

    Whistles rain down from the home stands as Roma skipper Francesco Totti is given a well-earned breather. Most 38-year-old's are sat on the sofa with their feet up and a beer in hand on a Sunday, not chasing around the champions of Italy.

    He's done his job though, bagging a goal, and generally upsetting the Juve defence. Mattia Destro, who scored from the halfway line for Roma last weekend, is the fresh pair of legs.

  89. Post update

    Juventus 2-2 Roma

    While the noise in the stands remains high, the tempo on the pitch has dropped. But only slightly. Instead of the game being played at 150mph, it is now at a pedestrian-in-comparison 110mph. Juventus enjoying a little spell on top, substitute Alvaro Morata slashes a shot wide from distance.

    If I was a betting man, I genuinely wouldn't know where to stick my last pound. Roma press again, Totti twisting and turning in the left channel but can't find the decisive pass.

  93. SUBSTITUTION

    Juventus 2-2 Roma

    First roll of the tactical dice is thrown by Juve. Boss Massimiliano Allegri throws on young Spanish forward Alvaro Morata, signed from Real Madrid in the summer, in place of his compatriot Fernando Llorente.

  94. CLOSE!

    Juventus 2-2 Roma

    It could be 3-2, 2-3 or 3-3! Both sides waste decent chances in quick succession. Juventus striker Carlos Tevez is denied by Kostas Manolas' last-ditch sliding challenge at one end, then Miralem Pjanic scuffs wide of the home goal after Gervinho dances around their defence.

    Roma start to settle down and neatly keep possession as they try to frustrate Juve. Whistles greet every Giallorossi pass.

    Juventus 2-2 Roma

    France midfielder Paul Pogba is starting to find some holes in the Roma backline as he drives forward again. He blazes high over the away goal, but is looking increasingly influential.

    It has also been confirmed that, among all that first-half furore, Roma boss Rudi Garcia was banished to the stands after rowing with referee Gianluca Rocchi about Juventus's first penalty.

  99. Post update

    Juventus 2-2 Roma

    Normal service resumes. Juve midfielder Paul Pogba gallops forward but is just an outstretched toe from turning in a third for Juventus. Then, Roma hit straight back with a quick break. However, Gervinho can't pick out a Giallorossi shirt as the home side hack clear.

    Juve make a defensive change - an enforced one - as injured Martin Caceres is replaced by Italy international Angelo Ogbonna.

    Leonardo Bonucci argues with AS Roma's Francesco Totti

    Francesco Totti is usually coolness personified, but even he is losing his rag in this pressure-cooker atmosphere. The Roma captain is one of six men to be booked, has been haranguing the referee and even went head-to-head with Juve defender Bonucci.

  106. HALF-TIME

    Juventus 2-2 Roma

    Let's sum that one up then shall we? Leaders Juventus go ahead through a dubious penalty. Second-placed Roma equalise through a dubious penalty. Roma hit the home side on the break to take a 2-1 lead. Juventus snatch an injury-time equaliser with a dubious penalty.

    Throw in a few scuffles, plenty of yellow cards and a vociferous home crowd, and you've got more drama than an Eastenders omnibus.

    What does Tevez do? Go the same way as his first penalty? Yes. That's exactly what the Argentine does. Juve are level again!

  110. PENALTY TO JUVENTUS

    Juventus 1-2 Roma

    Words cannot do this drama justice. But I'll try. Roma's Miralem Pjanic clips the heel of Paul Pogba right on the edge of the away penalty area - and referee Gianluca Rocchi instantly points to the spot.

    Juventus 1-2 Roma

    And Roma almost snatch a third! Gervinho looks like Pele as he skips through the Juventus defence, only to finish like Fred as he blazes over. Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri looks shellshocked.

  112. GOAL

    Juventus 1-2 Roma - Juan Iturbe

    Juan Iturbe & Gervinho

    Wow. Just as Juve looked likeliest to bag before half-time, Roma hit them with a sucker punch. Gervinho's perfectly-weighted pass finds the timed run of Argentine youngster Juan Iturbe, who smartly dispatches past Gianluigi Buffon. Virtually silence around the Juventus Stadium.

    Juventus 1-1 Roma

    A wall of Giallorossi shirts manage to scramble Pirlo's delivery away - only as far as Carlos Tevez. The Argentine lurks on the edge of the area and lashes a fierce shot towards the bottom corner. But a Roma body gets in the way to block.

    Moments later, Giorgio Chiellini is allowed a free header but can only direct the ball past the wrong side of the post. Juve pressing for another advantage as half-time approaches...

    This showdown is providing more action than a Steven Seagal action thriller now. It really has burst into life. Referee Gianluca Rocchi is losing his grip quickly. Both sets of pumped-up players are trying to influence his decisions as Totti and Lichtsteiner clash again.

  118. GOAL

    Juventus 1-1 Roma - Francesco Totti

    Francesco Tottie

    Can Francesco Totti cope with the pressure? Of course he can! The Roma hero coolly sidefoots into the right corner to haul the away side level.

  119. PENALTY TO ROMA

    Juventus 1-0 Roma

    Can. You. Believe. It. Roma skipper Francesco Totti is grappled to the ground by Juve defender Stephan Lichtsteiner and referee Gianluca Rocchi does not hesitate in evening things up by pointing to the spot.

    Drama o'clock. Carlos Tevez is the only man inside the Juventus Stadium to retain any sort of composure, calmly drilling in the opener from the spot.

  122. PENALTY TO JUVENTUS

    Juventus 0-0 Roma

    Pirlo's free-kick smashes into the Roma wall - hitting the outstretched hand of Maicon. Free-kick says the referee. Nope, penalty! Juve are delighted as the official changes his mind, Roma are furious. The Giallorossi players surround the official.

    Juventus 0-0 Roma

    Here's our first clear opportunity of the match - and it won't surprise you to find out that it falls to Juve.

    What might surprise you, however, is the sublime ball to pick out Claudio Marchisio's run comes from the feet of centre-back Leonardo Bonucci.

    His pinpoint Pirloesque 50-yard pass falls beautifully into the path of Marchisio, who scuffs a difficult first-time volley wide.

  125. Post update

    Juventus 0-0 Roma

    While Andrea Pirlo is considered as the grandad of Juventus' title-winning side, the 34-year-old is a spring chicken compared to Roma talisman Francesco Totti.

    The 38-year-old is still the main man for the Giallorossi, as shown by his sublime goal against Manchester City on Tuesday, and he almost creates an opportunity for team-mate Gervinho.

    But Juve keeper Gianluigi Buffon (who himself is 36) closes off that avenue.

    That penalty claim has upped the tempo inside the Juventus Stadium. The home fans are roaring their side on as I Bianconeri pour forward, with the waspish Carlos Tevez buzzing around with intent.

  128. PENALTY APPEAL

    Juventus 0-0 Roma

    Ooooh - our first bit of drama. Juve midfielder Claudio Marchisio goes tumbling under a Roma challenge in the six-yard box after he tries to prod Carlos Tevez's shot into the away net. The Italy international screams for a penalty and is joined in his pleas by about 41,000 home voices. The referee shakes his head in disgust.

    Here's our first glimpse of Juve hero Andrea Pirlo. Roma look a bit hesitant, almost in awe, when the Azzurri veteran has possession of the ball. On this occasion, they need not worry. His pass is too strong for Tevez and Roma claim back the ball.

    Both sides have watched from afar as the other has steamrolled past their previous opponents, but this is the first time that they have sized each other up, close and personal.

    Intense start from Juve as they hustle and harry the Romans straight from kick-off. Carlos Tevez creates a nuisance of himself down the left but can't pick out a team-mate with a loose cross.

    An unbelievable noise greets the two sets of players as they emerge from the Juventus Stadium tunnel. The home fans all hold up black and white placards to create a menacing monochrome cauldron for the away side. To paraphrase the Stone Roses...here's what the world is waiting for....

  135. Get involved

    Today's showdown can be "a great advert for Italian football", reckons Roma boss Rudi Garcia.

    "It's an important game for the whole of Italy because it will be watched the world over," says the Frenchman, who side earned a credible 1-1 draw at Manchester City in midweek.

    "Italian teams have had good results in Europe lately, showing Serie A perhaps doesn't get the credit it deserves."

    Is Garcia right? With the likes of Tevez, Pirlo, Totti and Pogba plying their trade in Serie A, is the Italian top-flight on the up? Not quite the halcyon days of Gullit, Van Basten and Rijkaard though is it. Tweet using #bbceurofooty or text 81111. Come on, let's be having you!

    Want big team news? Luckily we have got big team news.

    Juventus playmaker Andrea Pirlo - the irrepressible, bearded genius who makes them tick - is thrown into Allegri's starting XI for his first start of the season after injury.

    But there is no place in the Roma side for ex-England left-back Ashley Cole. We presume the 34-year-old, who is sat on the bench, is being given a breather.

  139. Classic Allegri

    Juventus v Roma (17:00 BST)

    But it turns out that Juventus's post-Conte demise has not materialised. Not in the first five weeks of the fledgling Serie A season anyway.

    Played five, won five. Scored 10, conceded none. His replacement Massimiliano Allegri must wonder what all the fuss is about.

    Now the ex-AC Milan gaffer faces his first proper test. Last season's runners-up Roma are heading into town. The Giallorossi also boast a perfect record of five wins but still - rather harshly - find themselves adrift of the Old Lady on goal difference.

    It is top versus second. It is the champions versus the runners-up. Welcome to Italy's *Il Classico.

    * Juventus v Roma may or may not be known as Il Classico....

  140. Life without Conte

    Then came the shock departure of the man who masterminded that trio of Scudetto successes. Coach Antonio Conte quit the day after Juventus's star-studded squad returned to pre-season training, and within a month had taken charge of the Italian national side.

    Juventus without Conte left the Old Lady's supporters fearing the worst. Juventus without Conte represented hope for the rest of Serie A - especially Roma.
