    Caught your breath back? Nope, me neither. While half of Madrid celebrates long into the night, we only have time for a quick refreshment before turning our attentions to the continental action taking place later.

    Make sure you join us for the Italian heavyweight clash between Juventus and AC Milan (19:45), followed by David Moyes's Real Sociedad hosting Celta Vigo (21:00). Adios!

  2. Stat attack

    Opta Jose: This has been the Real Madrid heaviest defeat in all competitions since their 5-0 v Barcelona in November 2010.

  3. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 4-0 Real Madrid

    Atletico almost enjoyed a perfect day. I say almost because there was one sour note for coach Diego Simeone. That came in the first half when he watched influential midfielder Koke trudge off with an injury.

    Atletico have tweeted to say the Spain international has suffered a muscular strain to his left hamstring.

  4. Stat attack

    Opta Jose: In their last seven La Liga games against Atletico and Barcelona in La Liga, Real Madrid have won just one (drawn one, lost five), conceding 16 goals.

    Atletico Madrid 4-0 Real Madrid

    And Real and Barca face a scrap wrestling La Liga from the clutches of defending champions Atletico.

    Los Rojiblancos would have slipped 10 points adrift of Real with defeat today, but are now level with second-placed Barcelona and well within striking distance.

    The Spanish title race has three horses galloping towards the finishing line once again....

  7. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 4-0 Real Madrid

    La Liga

    So let's move on to the bigger picture - the Spanish title race.

    Real Madrid still lead the way after 22 matches, but will see their advantage slashed to just one point if Barcelona beat Athletic Bilbao tomorrow.

  8. FULL-TIME

    Atletico Madrid 4-0 Real Madrid

    Anyone within a five-mile radius of the Vicente Calderon should be handed a pair of earplugs by Madrid city council. The noise inside the old stadium is deafening, the colour illuminating the late afternoon sky in the Spanish capital.

  9. FULL-TIME

    Atletico Madrid 4-0 Real Madrid

    All over! Although I suspect the party will only just be starting for many Atletico fans. Real supporters - like their players - will not dare show their face around the city for the next week.

  10. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 4-0 Real Madrid

    Carlo Ancelotti looks stunned. Like a man who has just found out that his wife has unexpectedly left him. For his best mate. Real have two minutes of stoppage time left to endure..

  11. Join the debate at #bbceurofooty

    Spanish football writer Andy West: 4-0. Unbelieeeevable. Carlo Ancelotti is a mild-mannered chap. Don't think he will be in the dressing room five minutes from now.

  12. GOAL

    Atletico Madrid 4-0 Real Madrid - Mario Mandzukic

    A day to forget for Ronaldo and Real. A day to remember forever for Atletico!

    Substitute Fernando Torres continues his renaissance by curling a delicious cross towards Mario Mandzukic - and he does the rest. The Croatia striker stoops to head in the fourth.

    Mario Mandzukic scores for Atletico Madrid
  13. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 3-0 Real Madrid

    Cristiano Ronaldo runs the ball out of play out wide, under little pressure from Atletico's defence. That sums up Real's day...

  14. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 3-0 Real Madrid

    This match feels like it has been played at 110mph - and Atletico still aren't taking their foot off the gas. Pulsating.

    Madan Roka: Atleti are playing a proper football today. Real Madrid players look lost in the field. A number of defensive errors.

    Cristiano Ronaldo looks dismayed as Atletico Madrid score again
  16. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 3-0 Real Madrid

    Wahaay! Real Madrid have stuck their first shot on target. With less than 10 minutes remaining. Real substitute Asier Illarramendi spanks a shot towards the Atletico goal, but keeper Miguel Angel Moya finally earns a portion of his salary by making a save.

    The Atletico fans respond with a Mexican wave...

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Atletico Madrid 3-0 Real Madrid

    The changes are coming thick and fast now, as Atletico try to slow the game down and coast towards the finish line. Another familiar face to Premier League fans appears, Atleti hero Fernando Torres trotting on to a, well, hero's reception. Goalscorer Antoine Griezmann departs to a standing ovation.

  18. SUBSTITUTION

    Atletico Madrid 3-0 Real Madrid

    Damage limitation for Real now. I'd bring on a defender to stop further embarrassment. But Carlo Ancelotti is not me, and opts to introduce Manchester United loanee Javier Hernandez instead. The Mexican replaces Karim Benzema, who frankly has not had a sniff.

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Atletico Madrid 3-0 Real Madrid

    Time for another change from Atletico. Midfielder Raul Garcia, who was booked earlier during his warm-up (seriously!), comes on for Saul who was injured in the build up to the goal.

  20. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 3-0 Real Madrid

    Atletico are buzzing over Real like a swarm of pollen-hungry bees. Turkey midfielder Arda Turan picks out Tiago, whose right foot shot flashes past the goal.

  21. GOAL

    Atletico Madrid 3-0 Real Madrid - Antoine Griezmann

    The pressure finally tells on the creaking Real defence. Arda Turan clips a cross-field pass to the far post where Saul climbs above young Real defender Nacho to head back across goal.

    Antoine Griezmann could have already bagged a hat-trick and finally sticks his name on the scoresheet. The Atletico forward shows greater desire than Real defender Raphael Varane to slide in the loose ball at the far post.

    Shambolic defending.

    Antoine Griezmann celebrates
  22. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    What are Real Madrid playing at? Their defence is under siege. Atletico right-back Juanfran finds space on the flank again, allowed time to pick out Arda Turan who heads at Iker Casillas.

  23. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Two more chances for Atletico - and two more chances for Antoine Griezmann. The France attacker fires over the Real crossbar, then seconds later heads right-back Juanfran's pinpoint cross over the bar. He could have bagged a hatful.

  24. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Atletico's Antoine Griezmann, with his blond mohawk and dark undercut, has the hairstyle of a skunk - and he is being a complete pest to the Real defence. The Frenchman pounces on a loose ball just inside the penalty area to force Iker Casillas into a flying save.

  25. YELLOW CARD

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    All very tetchy out there. Atletico centre-back Diego Godin also goes into the referee's notebook for dissent, before Gareth Bale escapes punishment for a naughty tackle. Lucky boy.

    Christophe Talbotski: Ronaldo is good, but can he do it on a cold Saturday in, erm, Madrid?

  27. YELLOW CARD

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Here's a 'what happened next' moment. Atletico substitute Raul Garcia is booked - while limbering up on the sideline! The midfielder must have been giving some verbals to the Real players as the on-field action moved towards the right touchline. That might have scuppered his chances of coming on...

  28. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    That half-time change has boosted Real, who are attacking with more of a swagger and menace than they ever did before the break. But they are still yet to fully stretch Atletico keeper Moya.

  29. SUBSTITUTION

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Real boss Carlo Ancelotti, understandably, looks grumpier than usual as he emerges from the Calderon tunnel. As well as flinging a few cups of tea at the break, he also decided to make a change. Young forward Jese replaces Germany midfielder Sami Khedira.

    Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti points on the touchline
  30. KICK-OFF

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Back under way in the Calderon, which is simmering with excitement from the home fans. Atletico are sensing a mauling here.

  31. HALF-TIME

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    I just imagine Barca boss Luis Enrique sat in front of his television, stroking his cat and laughing like Dr Evil, while watching Real's demise. Barca, who go to Athletic Bilbao tomorrow, will be delighted with this scoreline.

  32. HALF-TIME

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    What's that noise? It is the sound of Atletico blowing this Spanish title race wide open. The defending champions will move four points within leaders Real if they hold on to this two-goal advantage.

  33. Join the debate at #bbceurofooty

    Spanish football writer Andy West on Twitter: Atletico out-everythinged Real Madrid in that 1st half: out-fought, out-worked, out-thought and, crucially, out-played. Some great football.

  34. HALF-TIME

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Wow. Did anyone see that coming?

    Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone
  35. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    This scoreline could be even worse for Real as Atletico almost nick a third moments before the whistle. Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic is sniffing around Arda Turan's cross, only to see the Real defence clear to safety.

  36. INJURY TIME

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    The electric scoreboard signals two minutes of stoppage time. Atletico want more time, Real are just begging for that half-time whistle.

  37. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Finally the away side enjoy a period of sustained possession in the Atletico half. But they can't find a penetrative pass as Atletico keeper Miguel Angel Moya is left unmoved. Moya has been virtually unemployed - he can't have ever had an easier afternoon's work.

  38. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    This is an urgent appeal. A 25-year-old Welshman has gone missing in a less-than-salubrious part of Madrid.

    Real forward Gareth Bale is nowhere to be seen inside the Calderon. Although Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have not been spotted much either. Atletico in cruise control.

    Real Madrid striker Gareth Bale
  39. PENALTY APPEAL

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Another shout for an Atletico spot-kick. Another shake of the head from the referee.

    Rojiblancos centre-back Diego Godin lurks at the Real far post after a set-piece is partially cleared, smashing a wonderfully-crafted volley into a lunging block by Sami Khedira.

    Godin is convinced Khedira used his hands. Khedira clutches his face (yes, that old trick). But the referee's opinion is the one which matters and he says no.

  40. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    For anyone wondering why Real - the current leaders and reigning European champions - are defending like a set of schoolboys, it is worth reiterating that they have been decimated by injuries and suspension at the back. First-choice centre-halves Sergio Ramos and Pepe are injured, while left-back Marcelo is suspended.

    Spanish Football journalist Andy West on Twitter: One team is playing in fast forward while the other is stuck in slow motion. Atletico absolutely destroying Real Madrid here. Spectacular.

    Cristiano Ronaldo looks dismayed after going 2-0 down against Atletico Madrid
  43. YELLOW CARD

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Atletico are often criticised by the Spanish media for their, ahem, strong physical approach, but it is Real who are resorting to kicking lumps out of their opponents.

    Germany midfielder Toni Kroos boots the back of Antoine Griezmann's ankles as the Atletico forward skips around a cluster of white shirts. Cynical.

    John McEnerney: is this the turning point for Real Madrid after blitzing all around them in the first five months, the defence has always been suspect!

  45. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Almost 3-0! Atletico's marauding right-back Juan is given the freedom of the Real flank, storming into the area to pick out Antoine Griezmann who lurks around the penalty spot. The France forward, who has impressed since his summer move from Real Sociedad, shoots low into the grateful arms of Iker Casillas.

  46. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Real have won seven of their last 10 visits to the Vicente Calderon - but it doesn't look like they will extend their unbeaten run in Atletico's 'hood to 13 games.

    Cristiano Ronaldo sulks as a rare Real attack breaks down. All Atletico as the Rojiblancos surge forward again...

  47. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid

    Come one then, Real. What have you got?

  48. GOAL

    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Real Madrid - Saul

    Oh my word! The home fans can't believe what they have just seen. Neither can Real boss Carlo Ancelotti.

    Atletico double their lead within moments as substitute Saul executes a brilliant overhead kick to put them 2-0 ahead. That was as sweet as honey.

    Left-back Guilherme Siqueira deserves plenty of plaudits too, skipping down the flank before pulling back a pinpoint cross from the bye-line for Saul to convert.

  49. GOAL

    Atletico Madrid 1-0 Real Madrid - Tiago

    The Calderon erupts! Tiago (yes, that's the same Tiago who played for Chelsea all those years ago) smashes in the opening goal. The Portuguese midfielder races on to Antoine Griezmann's knockdown to hammer a low shot under Iker Casillas. Should the veteran Real keeper have covered that? I think so...

  50. SUBSTITUTION

    Atletico Madrid 0-0 Real Madrid

    That's right, Atletico have made an emergency call to Saul. No, not Saul Goodman, the shady lawyer in Breaking Bad. Saul, the young Spanish midfielder, comes on for Koke.

  51. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 0-0 Real Madrid

    Uh oh. Big blow for Atletico. Midfield schemer Koke, Spain's apparent heir to pass master Xavi, pulls up in the middle of the park with a hamstring injury. Better call Saul....

  52. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 0-0 Real Madrid

    Atletico are starting to warm to their task, with Arda Turan still in the thick of things. He dances into space inside the Real box, but his shot is tame and easily gathered by Real keeper Iker Casillas.

  53. PENALTY APPEAL

    Atletico Madrid 0-0 Real Madrid

    Tricky Atletico midfielder Arda Turan goes tumbling in the Real box, prompting a huge appeal from the Calderon stands. Penalty? Not a chance. The Turkey international is barely touched by Real left-back Fabio Coentrao.

  54. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 0-0 Real Madrid

    Real enjoy the best of the opening exchanges, dominating possession to the sound of Atletico jeers ringing in their ears. Cristiano Ronaldo flashes a cross into the home box, but the Atletico defence smash clear.

    Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid (15:00 GMT)

    Real coach Carlo Ancelotti insisted his players are not worried by Atletico's aggressive approach.

    "We don't have any fear," said the Italian. "They are a team which works well above all defensively and they are one of the best sides in the world."

  58. Post update

    Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid (15:00 GMT)

    However, Atletico's physical playing style has been criticised by some sections of the Spanish media, who have described their tactics as "violent".

    "Of course all this talk is tiring and we don't believe these stories. I don't know from who or where they come from," said Atletico defender Diego Godin.

    "We compete and we have been doing so for several years. Everything we have won has been the result of work, effort and being committed but not violent. This talk has to stop."

  59. Post update

    Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid (15:00 GMT)

    OK, Atletico have been scared off to a certain extent by their bigger rivals. Diego Simeone's men are third in La Liga, seven points behind their table-topping neighbours, with Barca sandwiched in between.

    But Atletico have not lost to Real since last season's Champions League final. Simeone's side have beaten Real in the Spanish Supercup and Copa del Rey over two legs, as well as winning 2-1 at the Bernabeu in September's reverse league fixture.

  60. Post update

    Hola amigos! For a long time, Atletico Madrid cowered in the large, looming shadows of their aristocratic neighbours Real, who welcomed Galaticos and trophies at a rate that Los Rojiblancos could only dream of.

    Not any more. Atletico emerged from the darkness last season to shock their Madrid rivals - not to mention Barcelona - to win their first Spanish title since 1996.

    The Real-Barca duopoly had been smashed. A third gang had swaggered into town....

    Madrid derby

    These are the sort of matches that create divides in the office. They can cause friction among families. And on derby day, even the usually-friendly bloke in your local shop will give you a glare if you support 'those lot'.

    Forget north London. Forget Merseyside. Welcome to the Madrid derby.
