FT: Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

It is Cristiano Ronaldo's night yet again - he's the best 'big game' player on the planet - and did justice to Real Madrid's domination tonight. Atletico have it all to do in the second leg, but going by this poor performance, we can consider this semi-final tie all but won.
...
90+3' Nacho is close to providing a fourth for Madrid, but the ball deflects off a defender to wrong-foot the Real Madrid superstar.
...
90+1' Madrid cannot make a clear cut chance from the set-piece, although they still have possession of the ball, and are gradually killing the game off.
...
90' 3 minutes of injury time, as Asensio earns a corner while attempting to send Ronaldo through on goal.
...
88' SHOT! Real Madrid are rampant at the moment - Marcelo spreads the ball wide to Modric arriving at the far post. The Croatian collects the ball and hammers a volley from a narrow angle into the side netting. 
...
86' HE'S ONLY GONE AND GOT HIS HAT-TRICK! Ronaldo starts off the counter attack, slipping Lucas Vazquez through on the right. He takes a touch past Godin, runs to the byline before cutting it back to Ronaldo. The superstar takes a touch, before calmly slotting past Oblak into the net. Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid
...
86' GOAAAL CRISTIANO RONALDOOO!
...
85' OOOH! Oles ring out at the Bernabeu as Real Madrid pass the ball around at the back. Ramos ends it all with a long ball to Lucas Vazquez, only for Oblak to collect.
...
83' Stefan Savic goes into the book for clattering into Ronaldo from behind.
...
81' Real Madrid have had 61% of the possession so far - what a dominant performance!
...
80' WHAT A CHANCE! Marco Asensio twists and turns to get past Lucas Hernandez, before sending in a low cross to Lucas Vazquez arriving late into the box, but the substitute's flick towards goal flies wide.
...
78' Benzema is replaced by Lucas Vazquez, with Ronaldo moving up top.
...
77' Gaitan pauses in his run-up before sending a clever ball into the box, only for Navas to charge out and punch the ball away with authority.
...
76' Atletico Madrid have a chance to respond, as Marcelo concedes a foolish foul on Correa. Gaitan steps up to take the set-piece from the right wing.
...
73' MOTHER OF GOD, WHAT A HIT! Benzema passes a ball square to Ronaldo on the edge of the box. Filipe Luis dives in to get a touch to intercept, with the ball popping up in the air. Ronaldo re-adjusts and waits for the ball to drop, before hammering an incredible strike past Oblak into the net! Real Madrid 2-0 Atletico Madrid
...
73' GOOOOAL CRISTIANOOOO RONALDOOOO!
...
72' CHANCE! Marco Asensio sends in a wicked ball from the left, right to Benzema making a run into the box, but Godin gets ahead of the Frenchman to head the ball out of danger and prevent a certain goal.
...
71' Koke sends in a free kick from the left wing, but Atkinson blows for a foul as Ronaldo goes tumbling under Savic's challenge. 
...
69' Nacho is left in a heap on the floor, as Gaitan makes a dreadfully late challenge on his chins. Martin Atkinson simply tells the Madrid player to get on with it.
...
68' Isco is replaced by Marco Asensio, while Simeone makes his final change by bringing on Angel Correa for Yannick Carrasco.
...
67' WHAT A WASTE! Toni Kroos waltzes through the middle, before finding Benzema in space on the left side of the box. The Frenchman blazes over from a narrow angle, with Ronaldo throwing his arms up in disgust in the box. 
...
65' Lucas Hernandez has put his torrid first half behind him - he's kept Ronaldo quiet when in one-on-one situations thrice in the last 10 minutes.
...
Stat: Atletico Madrid didn't complete a single pass inside Real Madrid's penalty area in the opening 60 minutes.
...
62' Oooh! Isco dribbles past Gabi with ease, drawing audible sounds of appreciation from the Bernabeu. With Benzema making a great run to the far post, Isco fluffs his lines, chipping the ball straight to Oblak in goal.
...
60' Zinedine Zidane will be the happier of both managers on the hour mark, although it's still a narrow 1-0 lead for the hosts despite all their chances. 
...
59' Atletico have attempted to pile on the pressure on Nacho, with Carrasco attempting to outpace him. The Madrid substitute holds firm, and puts the ball out of play with a well-timed sliding tackle.
...
58' Torres and Gaitan replace Gameiro and Saul for Atletico Madrid
...
57' It's Atletico's turn to have some possession, but as they're blocked off from attacking down the left wing by Nacho, the ball is worked to Carrasco in the centre, who lets fly from 30 yards out - but it was probably better if he hadn't.
...
55' Real Madrid have all of the ball in midfield at the moment, with Atletico struggling to win the ball back.
...
52' Toni Kroos' takes it short, and the pressure eases on Atletico as Marcelo gives the ball away. Moments later, Nacho goes tumbling to the floor after being clipped by Saul as he bombed forward. The Atletico midfielder earns a yellow card.
...
51' OOOF! Ronaldo rolls back the years and powers past Godin with a kick-and-go on the right wing, before sending a low cross to Benzema in the box, but Savic is on hand to clear the ball for a corner. 
...
49' Isco goes into the book for a late challenge on Lucas Hernandez.
...
47' It's been a sedate start to the second half, with both defences holding firm as either side push forward in attack. Ronaldo then gets clipped by Savic from behind, and Madrid earn a free-kick, which they waste by taking it short.
...
46' AND WE'RE OFF! Real Madrid get us underway, kicking off from right to left!
...
HT: Real Madrid have brought Nacho on to replace Dani Carvajal
...
The second half is coming up next, with plenty of questions regarding the first half - Will Dani Carvajal come out for the second period of play? Can Diego Simeone offer up more protection for Lucas Hernandez? We'll find out in the next 45!
...
HT: Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid
...
45+1' Dani Carvajal gets a boot in his face as he challenged Saul for an aerial ball, and eventually goes down in a heap, with Atkinson stopping play to allow the Spaniard to receive treatment.
...
45' Marcelo earns a corner of Lucas Hernandez yet again, with Toni Kroos set to take the set-piece. Sergio Ramos rises high to meet the delivery, but Diego Godin is present to nip ahead and head the ball out of danger.

1 minute of added time.
...
43' Lucas Hernandez, who's had a torrid time this game, spots a chance to get forward. He pushes the ball past Ramos and attempts to get to the byline, but the canny Spanish defender holds him off ever so slightly to ensure the ball goes out of play. Experience, always tells.
