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.
...
41' Casemiro is down with a head injury, and spits out blood after getting an elbow to his face from Godin as they challenged for the corner. Martin Atkinson, the man in the middle, has stopped play as the Brazilian receives treatment. 
...
39' Atletico Madrid earn a corner as Carrasco sends in a low cross to Koke in the box, but Ramos shelters the ball out of danger. Koke sends in a ball with it falling to Ronaldo - who makes a mess of his clearance to concede another corner. The man is human after all.
...
36' LUCKY! Casemiro loses the ball in a dangerous position, with Gameiro taking it off him and right before he's about to release Griezmann through on goal, Ramos steps in to make a crucial interception! 
...
34' Real Madrid attempt to kill all of Atletico's momentum by playing the safe passes in midfield. Marcelo ends that spell with a low cross into the box from the left, but Savic intercepts and wins the ball back for the visitors.
...
32' OOOF! Griezmann clips a clever ball to Godin at the near post. With Ramos well behind, the Uruguayan has the goal at his mercy from a narrow angle, but his first time volley flies over the bar!
...
31' Carrasco charges up the middle at Atletico counter attack, with Dani Carvajal clipping him on his heels to concede a foul in a promising position for Atletico Madrid. Will Griezmann rise to the occasion now?
...
29' WHAT A CHANCE! Ronaldo torments Lucas Hernandez on the wings, before getting a yard on his marker and swinging a beautiful cross into the box with his left foot - It is slightly over Benzema's head, which results in the Frenchman attempting an audacious overhead kick, but his effort flies over. What a goal that would have been! 
...
28' Atletico finally have a spell of possession, working the ball across the pitch as they attempt to spread the play to the wings. Filipe Luis manages to waste this solitary foray forward, as he overcooks his effort to the far post, with Marcelo collecting.
...
26' Koke goes into the book for tugging back Modric as he set off on a counter-attack. No complaints from the Atletico player there - he took one for the team.
...
24' WHAT A HIT!!! Marcelo pings in a devilish ball from the left aimed at Benzema at the far post, but Oblak comes out to palm the ball straight out to Modric. With the keeper still scrambling to get back into position, Modric aims a low drive past Oblak, but it whistles narrowly wide of the post!
