      FULL-TIME! Atletico battle back late to a 3-2 victory over Celta, courtesy of goals from Torres, Carrasco and Griezmann, as the home side left it until the last five minutes to win it. Cabral and Guidetti made things very tight, but eventually it was Simeone's men who took the three points. That's a

      HALF-TIME! The two sides go into the break with a 1-1 scoreline, courtesy of goals from Cabral and Torres. Celta opened the scoring due to a Moya mistake, before Torres responded with a world-class over-head kick. The Spanish striker then missed a harshly-given penalty, in what has been a riveting f

      Atletico have won their last three games in the Spanish top flight, and haven't conceded at this ground in LaLiga since November. Leganes, Real Betis and Las Palmas have recently succumbed to defeat in Madrid, but Celta Vigo have won three of their last four in league action.
    • 0'
      Hello and welcome to live coverage of Atletico Madrid's home LaLiga clash against Celta Vigo. Both of these teams were dumped out of the Copa del Rey during the week, and will be keen to get back to winning ways as soon as possible. Diego Simeone has a few injuries to contend with, but Los Colchoner
    • 1'
      We are underway in the first half at Estadio Vicente Calderon! Atletico will be trying to maintain their strong home form of late, but Celta have freshened up their attack and will want to kick on from semi-final disappointment as quickly as possible.
    • 2'
      Torres and Griezmann combine nicely up top, before a throughball is slotted into the clear for the Spaniard to chase, but the pass is slightly too heavy and Sergio Alvarez collects. The hosts are dominating possession from the very off.
    • 4'
      The away side are sat deep and absorbing some early pressure, but they could easily by a threat on the break. Sisto releases the ball out to the left-hand side, but a near-post cross from Jozabed is easily cleared.

    • 5'
      GOOOOOOAL! Jozabed shoots from close-range, but the Spanish midfielder's effort is deflected wide of the left-hand post by Lucas. The corner is whipped in, and Moya flaps the ball onto Cabral's head! The ball deflects into the back of the net off the Argentine centre-back. Awful mistake from the sho
    • 7'
      Guidetti is the target of a long ball pumped over the top, but Lucas slots a pass back to his goalkeeper. Despite starting quite well, Moya's mistake has left Atletico in the lurch. They need to respond quickly.
    • 9'
      Sisto is fed possession on the left wing, but the Danish wide man controls the ball straight out for a throw-in. This hasn't been the most polished of starts. It appears that both sides have got a Copa del Rey hangover.
    • 10'
      Filipe Luis drives down the left-hand side, but the home side are then frustrated with ease by Mallo. Griezmann tries to lift a pass into Torres on the edge of the box, and the Spaniard is able to spin nicely. Roncaglia and Cabral combine nicely to prevent the ex-Chelsea striker from scoring.
    • 11'
      G Fernando Torres Assist Y. Carrasco
    • 11'
      Carrasco plays in a simple pass, and then what a goal Torres comes up with.
    • 11'
      GOOOOOOOOAL! TORRES MAKES IT 1-1! What a goal! The Spanish striker sets himself up beautifully, finishing nicely from close-range. Carrasco passes into Torres, who flicks the ball up and lobs an over-head finish into the back of the net. Pure inspiration!
    • 13'
      Atletico are now back on level terms, with that excellent goal cancelling out the howler from Moya. Simeone's men are dominating possession, with Juanfran and Filipe Luis pushing right on in support of the attacks. Celta Vigo are sat incredibly deep.
    • 15'
      Guidetti bursts forward, but Lucas forces the Swedish striker away from goal. Celta then advance down the right, with Iago Aspas found in the box by a great cross by Mallo. The former Sevilla striker directs a header goalwards, but it flashes across the face of goal and wide.
    • 17'
      Torres is in the mood tonight, with the Spaniard skipping beyond Cabral courtesy of a neat step-over. Gameiro might struggle to get in the team, at this rate. The Argentine defender goes down in the aftermath, but apparently okay to continue, after having the physios on briefly.
    • 19'
      Aspas tries to wriggle his way down the right-hand side, but can't keep the ball in play, with Celta threatening sporadically on the counter. Atletico win a free-kick deep on the left-hand side, but Carrasco's delivery is cleared ahead of Griezmann and Filipe Luis by Mallo.
    • 21'
      Torres goes down in the penalty area, claiming for a penalty, but the referee points for a goal-kick rather than to the spot. The Spanish goalscorer is furious, as Roncaglia dives into a scrappy challenge on the Atletico forward - but somehow the officials don't see it. The Celta centre-back is very
    • 23'
      Sisto is released in behind down the left, before checking onto his right foot. The Denmark international shoots, but Savic makes a block, before moments later the same Celta winger is only able to nod a tame header straight at Moya. This time, the ex-Getafe goalkeeper displays competent handling.
    • 25'
      Jozabed tries to play a neat throughball into Guidetti's path, but Lucas makes a brilliant interception. Celta keep their pressure on, with Jonny driving in from the left-hand side, but the visiting left-back can only shoot straight at Moya.
    • 27'
      Berizzo's men keep the ball nicely, with this first half having a nice ebb and flow to it. Aspas and Mallo combine down the right, with a cross then flashed in from the flank to Guidetti. The Swedish striker tees up Jozabed, with the former Rayo Vallecano midfielder rifling a 20-yard shot onto the f
    • 29'
      PENALTY FOR ATLETICO! The referee appears to have been keen to make up for his earlier mistake. Roncaglia puts Carrasco under pressure and spins away from the Celta defender, before going down very, very easily indeed.
    • 30'
      TORRES MISSES IT! The Atletico striker rifles a powerful spot-kick onto the crossbar, with Sergio Alvarez having gone the wrong way. That is justice, really, as the spot-kick was extremely kind to the home team.
    • 32'
      Carrasco shoots straight at Sergio Alvarez! The Belgium international bursts into the clear and beyond Jonny, but then can't place his shot away from the Spanish goalkeeper. Atletico will be wondering how they aren't ahead at the Vicente Calderon quite yet.
    • 33'
      Easy stop for Moya! Jozabed spins inside the box, after good work from Aspas with his back to goal. The Spanish central midfielder unleashes a close-range effort, but the Atletico goalkeeper is able to get down smartly to smother the ball.
    • 35'
      Guidetti lays a pass out to Jonny on the overlap, but Juanfran makes a good tackle. Celta have responded well since Torres' penalty miss, and this contest could easily swing in either direction. Only 10 minutes remain until the break, with Simeone wondering how Los Colchoneros aren't in front.
    • 37'
      Celta are enjoying a lengthy spell of possession, with Berizzo's men competing well. Torres goes down after a bad tackle from Cabral, with the Atletico striker rolling back the years so far up front for the hosts.
    • 39'
      Celta earn themselves a free-kick deep on the left-hand side, with Sisto the man to whip the delivery into the box. The Dane's cross is headed away by noone other than Torres. The Spaniard has been absolutely everywhere so far. Aspas shoots from range for Celta, but his effort bounces a long way wid
    • 41'
      Gabi lifts a neat ball out to Juanfran on the right-hand side, but Sisto recovers well and intercepts. Atletico just can't seem to offer any cutting edge in the final third, which is a consistent theme of Simeone's side in the last month.
    • 42'
      Guidetti gets the first yellow card of the game for cynically clipping Lucas' heels.
    • 44'
      Sisto bursts down the left and plays a one-two with Jozabed, but the return pass from the Celta Vigo midfielder is far too heavy. Both teams' attacks are just petering out as they threaten to get into the final third.
    • 45'
      Sisto feeds Guidetti to the left byline, but the Swedish striker takes an awful first touch and dribbles straight out of play. Atletico attack down the other end, with Koke whipping in a cross from the right, but Roncaglia hacks clear.
    • 46'
      SI Š. Vrsaljko SO Y. Carrasco
    • 46'
      Juanfran is replaced by Vrsaljko at right-back for the second half.
    • 46'
      We are back underway in the second half at Estadio Vicente Calderon! Both sides have had their fair share of chances during the opening 45 minutes, so there should be plenty of entertainment now we're back with the ball rolling again.
    • 48'
      Atletico win themselves a free-kick deep on the left-hand side, with Koke able to flight a ball in. The Spain international's delivery is punched half-clear by Sergio Alvarez, with the Celta defence doing the rest. Simeone's men have come out well after the restart.
    • 50'
      Carrasco is fouled on the edge of the Celta penalty area, with Mallo making a scrappy challenge. Gabi takes aim from 20 yards out, but rolls a pass to the side for Carrasco. The former Monaco winger sees a shot charged down. What a waste.
    • 52'
      Griezmann plays a neat flick around the corner, which allows Torres to race in behind the Celta back four. The Spanish striker tries to get beyond Roncaglia, and buffets the Argentine defender to the ground - which sees play pulled back for a foul. The ex-Fiorentina centre-back hasn't looked too ste
    • 53'
      Mallo bends a cross in from the right-hand side, with Moya fumbling yet another delivery that was pumped into the box. He really isn't inspiring any confidence from his defenders. Atletico respond with a careful attack down the right, but an inventive flick from Griezmann goes straight through to Se
    • 55'
      Guidetti is caught by a stray arm from Savic, but the Swedish forward is quickly back to his feet. Griezmann scampers infield from the right and exchanges possession with Saul, but Jozabed then makes an untidy challenge.
    • 57'
      Celta attack down the right-hand side, but Mallo's delivery fails to beat the first man. Berizzo's men retain possession, but they can't seem to penetrate Atletico's back four. Clear-cut chances have been very few and far between tonight. Neither goalkeeper has had much regular work to do.
    • 59'
      Aspas is invited forward on the break, but an attempted throughball towards Guidetti is cut out by Lucas. The away side are having a nice spell of possession, but this time Radoja gives the ball away. Berizzo might need to make a change soon, as La Celeste are struggling to find a way through.
    • 60'
      Torres drives down the left-hand side, but Cabral makes an easy tackle on the Spanish forward. Moments later, Griezmann jinks in from the right, but he can't find a telling pass into Torres. The offside flag then denies the former Real Sociedad striker after a cross from Vrsaljko. End-to-end stuff.
    • 62'
      Griezmann releases the ball out to Carrasco on the left. The Belgium international cuts onto his right foot and ignores the overlapping presence of Filipe Luis, and sees his resulting shot deflected behind for a corner. The set-piece is whipped in, but then Lucas can only rise high enough to nod a h
    • 63'
      Carrasco is picked out by a ball in from the right-hand side, but the Atletico winger can only nod a weak header straight at Sergio Alvarez. Atletico threaten again down the left-hand side, but a cross from Filipe Luis sails over Torres and to safety on the far side.
    • 64'
      SI D. Wass SO Y. Carrasco
    • 64'
      Jozabed jogs off after a quiet start to the second half, with Wass coming into the midfield three for Celta.
    • 66'
      Torres and Saul combine down the right-hand side, before Atletico open play out to the opposite flank through Gabi. Lucas drives on down the left, but is forced wide by Hernandez, with the hosts' defender able to win a corner for his troubles. Koke whips it in, but Cabral heads clear.
    • 68'
      Celta build down the left-hand side, with Sisto ghosting in from the flank. Guidetti is fed possession, before looking to feed a cheeky pass into Aspas, but the ball is taken off the Spaniard's toes before he can do anything with it. Both of these teams are having encouraging spells, but there is a
    • 70'
      SI T. Bongonda SO Y. Carrasco
    • 70'
      Sisto is replaced for the last 20 minutes, with Bongonda injected into the fray out wide on the left wing.
    • 70'
      Atletico break at pace down the right-hand side, but a cross from Vrsaljko can only find the gloves of Sergio Alvarez. Griezmann is cutting a frustrated figure up top, at this point. Countless balls are being pumped into the box, but Torres is feeding off scraps.
    • 72'
      SI Á. Correa SO Y. Carrasco
    • 72'
      Saul is replaced for the home side, with Correa given the last quarter of an hour to make himself a hero for Los Colchoneros out on the right wing.
    • 72'
      Guidetti opens play out to the right-hand side, but Mallo is robbed of possession brilliantly by Filipe Luis. Celta work a lofted ball into the box, which tees up Aspas just inside the penalty area, but the Spain international's attempted volley goes straight down Moya's throat.
    • 74'
      Vrsaljko makes a poor tackle on Bongonda, with some fresh legs having the potential to mix things up in the late stages of this contest. Jonny is booked for timewasting when standing over the dead ball.
    • 76'
      SI K. Gameiro SO Y. Carrasco
    • 76'
      A winning goal is looking rather hard to come by, with neither side having any glaring opportunities. Simeone rolls the dice, with Torres replaced by Gameiro for the last 15 minutes.
    • 77'
      Bongonda drives down the left and then cuts a good pass back to Wass. The substitute opens play out to Guidetti on the right-hand side, but the Swedish forward leans back and blasts a terrible shot over the crossbar.
    • 78'
      G J. Guidetti Assist Y. Carrasco
    • 78'
      Wass cuts back a smart pass from the right-hand side, to cap a lovely counter-attacking move from La Celeste.
    • 78'
      GOOOOOOOOOAL! GUIDETTI SCORES TO MAKE IT 2-1! Wass breaks down the right and cuts a great ball across the face of goal, which allows Guidetti to tuck home a lovely finish. Great goal on the counter from the away side.
    • 80'
      Celta only have 10 minutes standing between themselves and three great away points, with Atletico's home support growing a little restless. Simeone's changes haven't made the required impact, and Berizzo's men are looking the most likely to score again to put this contest beyond any doubt.
    • 81'
      Vrsaljko catches a sore one from his own goalkeeper, after the Atletico shot-stopper flaps at yet another cross from a corner. The hosts respond with a break downfield, but Aspas tracks back to help nullify the move from Los Colchoneros.
    • 83'
      Correa tries to wriggle away down the left-hand side, but Jonny stands up well, before Radoja gets back to frustrate Carrasco too. Atletico just can't seem to break the visitors down this evening. Simeone is getting gradually more frustrated.
    • 84'
      Sergio Alvarez is forced into a great save to deny Carrasco from a tight angle, as Atletico continue to bash their heads against a wall. Gabi picked out an intelligent run from the Belgian forward brilliantly.
    • 85'
      SI M. Díaz SO Y. Carrasco
    • 85'
      A tired Aspas is replaced by Marcelo Diaz for the late stages. A striker off for a midfielder for Celta.

    • 86'
      GOOOOOOOOOAL! CARRASCO MAKES IT 2-2! The Belgium international levels the scoring in Madrid. After Celta fail to clear properly after a corner from the away side, with Carrasco dipping home a beautiful volley from outside the box.

    • 88'
      Gameiro unselfishly nods a square ball into a dangerous area.

      GOOOOOOOOOAL! GRIEZMANN MAKES IT 3-2! What a move from the hosts. A cross is forced in from the right-hand side, with a square header at the back post picking out the Frenchman six yards out. The diminutive striker scampers in and cushions home a simple finish.
    • 90'
      There are three minutes of stoppage time at Estadio Vicente Calderon. This game is end-to-end now, with Celta needing to try and claw back the advantage.
