90+3' Bale with a powerful shot from a narrow angle that is well saved.
90+2' Nearly! Celta almost trouble Real Madrid from a counter, but Sisto is crowded out on the left wing for the chance to break down.
90+1' Real Madrid are forced back from the corner as they try to kill the game.
90' 3 minutes of added time, as Real Madrid earn a corner.
89' Oh dear. As Celta's attack breaks down James has a lovely chance to play in Mariano, but his long ball forward is waaaay overhit.
88' Celta Vigo have another corner as they chase the equaliser. Real Madrid hold firm.
87' Another nervous moment at the back for Real Madrid as Lucas Vazquez, of all people, dallies in the box and nearly gives the ball away, only to luckily earn a foul.
85' Radoja comes off for Sisto, formerly of Midtjyalland. I bet Manchester United fans remember him.
84' CHANCE! Celta nearly score from a corner with Bongonda almost getting his head to the delivery, as Casilla flapped at the ball and was in no man's land.
80' WHAT A WASTE! A great chance for Celta as they countered 3-on-1 but the Pape Diop's pass is underhit and Varane intercepts. Moments later, Lucas Vazquez's cross from the right is powered towards goal by Bale's head, only for Alvarez to make a good save.
79' A lovely ball from Bale on the right to the far post after a free-kick is cleared out to him, but Ramos is unable to direct his header well.
78' Mariano is straight into the action as the ball bounces to him on the edge of the box, but Celta charge down his shot. Can the 23-year-old Dominican be the difference tonight?
77' Mariano Diaz comes on for Alvaro Morato
76' Wass comes off for Pape Diop
74' Was that another penalty? No. Marcelo goes down way to easily in the box after being bullied off the ball by Roncaglia again.
71' The Bernabeu screams for a penalty, as James goes down in the box, but Roncaglia had cleared the ball for a corner, although he did look to have caught the Colombian's legs. Madrid can't capitalize on the subsequent corner, despite some nervous goalkeeping from Alvarez.
70' Almost! Bale with a stunning whipped cross from the left that just ASKS to be headed home, but Morata misses the delivery by inches and Celta breathe a sigh of relief.
69' Luka Modric comes off from James Rodriguez. Could he be the surprise match-winner tonight?
65' Marco Asensio comes off for Lucas Vazquez
64' OFF THE POST!! A lovely through ball from deep by Kroos sends Morata clear, and he bursts past his marker and produces a deft touch past the keeper with his left foot, only to watch in agony as it cannons off the upright.
63' Casemiro with a long range effort -it curls narrowly wide.
60' Berizzo is absolutely livid on the Celta bench, as this was a rather soft goal to concede. That all started with a poor kick out from Alvarez. No wonder Guardiola wanted Joe Hart - that was poor distribution.
58' Close. Marcelo with a burst down the left wing evades defenders with a couple of stepovers, and stabs a through ball to Morata down the centre, but the Spaniard does not read the ball. Moments later, a poor clearance from Alvarez, finds Morata in space, but he is called offside.
56' WHAT A SAVE! Bale's free-kick looks destined for the top corner, only for Alvarez to tip the ball over the crossbar with a full-stretch save to his left.
55' Jonny goes into the book for a shove in Bale's back. Madrid have another free-kick in a promising place.
53' OUCH! Bale with a rather embarrassing free-kick as he sends his effort well over the bar. It's not like Ronaldo is any better, though. Maybe give Asensio a chance next time?
52' Celta captain Mallo goes into the book for a foul on Morata.
51' SHOT! Asensio with a lovely turn and drop of the shoulders to evade a challenge and curl a shot with his left foot from about 25 yards out. His low effort is well saved though, much to the dismay of the Bernabeu.
50' A mild moment of panic in the Celta box as they almost make a mess of clearing the corner, but the visitors eventually get the ball away.
49' Real Madrid are under the cosh! Orellana burts down the right and nearly finds Guidetti, only for Casemiro to intercept and start a counter that ends with Bale earning a corner from the right. End-to-end stuff here, as we have a promising start to the second half.
47' DEJA VU! Wass, Guidetti and Bongonda again play some quick one-touch passing and charge into the box, only for Varane to get a block in and clear the danger.
46' WOW! Some amazing one-touch play from Guidetti and Bongonda results in a low cross nearly evading Orellana at the far post. What a start from the Galacians!
46' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Real Madrid get us underway in the second half! Can they improve in this half?
