AC Milan had more of the ball but Sampdoria won the shot count. A draw? Fair result.

Sampdoria move into a Champions League spot with their point. They would have taken that at the start of the campaign.

Milan are now winless in four matches but a draw against in-form Sampdoria isn't a bad result. Both sides will be reasonably happy with that.

Italian Serie A

Milan would be winless in four matches if this match stays as it is. With two minutes left though, they are more concerned with avoiding a second straight defeat.

RED CARD TO MILAN

Sampdoria 2-2 AC Milan

Daniele Bonera receives a second yellow card for blocking Stefano Okaka. Four minutes for the visitors to hold on.

CLOSE!

So close to Milan taking the lead.

Fernando Torres advances down the right, pulls the ball back for Giacomo Bonaventura, and the Italian's low shot is inches wide of the post.

Seven minutes left.

Shoot on sight for Milan and Michael Essien, Giacomo Bonaventura and Jeremy Menez see shots blocked with the space of 30 seconds. The visitors are on top now.

Eder has scored the 8th Sampdoria set piece goal so far this season: a record in the current Serie A.

The hosts will hope to have a few more chances to add to that stat in the remaining 14 minutes.....

YELLOW CARD

Sampdoria 2-2 AC Milan

Italian Serie A

Eder has been fantastic this evening. The Brazilian is a danger every time he gets the ball.

This time his mazy run is halted by Mattia De Sciglio's cynical trip. A deserved yellow.

This is anyone's game now. Stephan El Shaarawy is sent clear down the left but, with Fernando Torres waiting, his cross is blocked at the near post.

Chance for Fernando Torres as he takes the ball on his chest and, for a moment, looks like he has a shooting chance. The striker is bundled out of it before being penalised.

Jeremy Menez makes no mistake as he waits for the goalkeeper to move and slots the ball into the other corner. Level again and game on.

PENALTY TO MILAN

Sampdoria 2-1 AC Milan

Italian Serie A

A route back into the game for Milan as left back Djamel Mesbah slips and handles a cross from the left. Right decision but very unfortunate for the defender.

Into the last 30 minutes at Sampdoria. At the moment the hosts looks firmly in control but that can change with a swing of a boot......

Sampdoria 2-1 AC Milan

Is this his time? Fernando Torres is on for AC Milan.

He owes them a performance after a pretty poor start to life at the San Siro. He has just one goal so far.

Sampdoria will move back into third if they can keep hold of this result, just three points behind leaders Juventus - albeit having played a game more. Milan will be six points behind Samp in eighth with defeat.

La Liga table

And so, as expected, Barcelona's time at the top of the table is short-lived. Real's victory restores their two-point lead over their Catalan rivals, with Valencia and Atletico both in action tomorrow.

The Sampdoria fans are making themselves heard now. Pedro Obiang heads a right-wing corner against the post but Eder is the quickest to react to tap home for his second of the season.

Milan heading for a second successive defeat?

FULL-TIME

Real Madrid 5-1 Rayo Vallecano

It's all over in the Bernabeu and another Real rout is complete. The European champions have now won 13 games in a row, scoring no less than 52 goals in the process. It is the fifth time they've scored five or more goals in their last eight league games.

KICK-OFF

Sampdoria 1-1 AC Milan

Italian Serie A

How these two sides could do with a Cristiano Ronaldo..... Mind you, who couldn't?

Ronaldo now has 18 league goals this season, at least one in each of the 10 games he has played. He has 23 in 17 matches in all competitions. Ridiculous.

Real Madrid 5-1 Rayo Vallecano

It had to happen, didn't it? Cristiano Ronaldo gets his goal, but not without a healthy dollop of good fortune. Isco's through-ball finds Ronaldo in space. He cuts inside to set up the shot, which is weak, but somehow scrambles under the body of Alvarez and into the net.

BALE HITS THE WOODWORK

Real Madrid 4-1 Rayo Vallecano

Just after I've bigged him up, Bale delivers another explosive moment. The ball sits up nicely for him 30 yards out and he unleashes a fierce half-volley that Alvarez just manages to palm onto the crossbar.

Sampdoria will feel they have done more than enough to deserve that late equaliser. Nine shots to Milan's four.......

Kit Chang Wong: Why is it when English players go to RM they grow ridiculous barnets i.e. Bale, Woodgate and Becks. Hairbands and football, NO

Real Madrid 4-1 Rayo Vallecano

Isco is a lovely player, so easy on the eye, but you can see why he misses out to Gareth Bale in Ancelotti's first XI. He just doesn't quite have the Welshman's searing pace. It's not a bad problem for the Italian boss to have though.

AC Milan barely have time to restart the match. What a second half we have in store.

That has been coming and what a well-worked move it is as well.

Sampdoria's danger man Manolo Gabbiadini works his way to the bye-line before crossing low for Stefano Okaka to tap home.

Real Madrid 4-1 Rayo Vallecano

It's been a good performance from Real, but not without its flaws. Here's another shaky moment from stand-in keeper Navas as he comes out to meet a cross from deep, but is beaten to the ball by Abdoulaye Ba. His header loops narrowly wide.

Apologies Sampdoria fans, that wasn't worth the big build-up.

Manolo Gabbiadinicurls the free-kick well over the bar.

Speak of the devil... Ronaldo is played in by Bale, but his shot is kept out one-handed by Alvarez at his near post.

SUBSTITUTION

Real Madrid 4-1 Rayo Vallecano

As predicted, Ancelotti starts to ring the changes. James Rodriguez is withdrawn and Isco comes on in his place.

Sampdoria 0-1 AC Milan

Italian Serie A

Chance. Roberto Soriano should really do better with a header from eight yards. As it is, his downward effort is easy for Diego Lopez. He got into space far too easily though as far as Milan are concerned.

Real Madrid 4-1 Rayo Vallecano

We've got half an hour left and this game is as good as up. In fact, I would expect Carlo Ancelotti to start bringing off some of his big guns soon. Poor old Rayo, they've given this a good go, but Real have been as ruthless as ever and enjoyed the rub of the green.
