90'+1

Malmö FFAtlético Madrid - Malmö FF

GOAL! Atletico 5-0 Malmo (Cerci) - The Italian has his first Atletico goal and Simeone has a margin of victory befitting his side's domination of the game. After having taken a snap shot that pranged off the far post, the ball rebounds to Cerci who makes sure his second bit of the cherry hits home. Malmo's defending was abject however.

Full time and it finishes 2-1. Incredible stuff. A smash and grab from Arsenal who were poor for so much of tonight. Somehow they come away with 3 points, avoiding a big scare in Group D.

SUBSTITUTION: Pa Konate on for Ricardinho. Age Hareide sends on a replacement for his right-back who has been a useful player this evening, bombing forward or hanging back depending on what was required of him.

SUBSTITUTION: Simon Thern on for Magnus Eriksson. Lost in the midst of that goal was a switch made by Malmo, who send on the fresh-faced Thern for Eriksson. It's unlikely to make much of a difference now.

GOAL! Atletico 4-0 Malmo (Godin) - The man in the armband gets a goal, as he heads home from the corner. It's a deserved reward for the defender who has been an intimidating presence at the back for the Spanish champions.

Arsenal have an equaliser! It's Kieran Gibbs who connects with a Chambers cross, cooly side-footing the ball into the net on the volley. What a finish!

ANOTHER SAVE! Tevez with a low drive from the edge of the area to the goalkeepers right but he is down again to get a strong hand on it.

We're into the final 10 minutes now and the hosts are understandably keen to slow things down. They bring on Matias Suarez for Cyriac, who put in a fine shift.

Whipped cross from deep in from Pogba which flies all the way to Roberto who palms away for a corner. AND A GREAT SAVE FROM THE CORNER! Morata fires one from the penalty spot towards the top corner but the keeprr saves it onto the bar!

Sanchez takes it and hits the side-netting! A lovely free-kick but just the wrong side of the post.

SUBSTITUTION: Cerci on for Mandzukic as Simeone plays his final hand from the bench to bring on Atletico's summer recruit from Serie A. The Italian is yet to open his account for his new club. Could tonight be the night?

Anderlecht hit the bar! Arsenal leave themselves gaping at the back and Najar drives into the box, Praet's resulting shot is miskicked, bounces up and somehow comes back off the bar with Martinez wrong-footed.

SUBSTITUTION: Greizmann is off Christian Rodriguez and that's two substitutions down, one to go for Atletico. Unfortunately for the new arrival, his first contribution to the game mainly consists of being smacked in the mouth by his marker. That's one way to greet an opponent with fresh legs from the bench, I guess.

Najar fires a shot-come-cross across the box which zips a few yards wide. Dangerous moments again for the Gunners.

Yellow card for Rosenberg, who is booked by the referee for diving in the area after receiving a sharp through ball from a Malmo free kick. Madzukic's challenge looked a bit ungainly but legal. The veteran will have to think twice before tryng to be too canny now.

A lovely break from the visitors ends with James cracking a low shot just wide of the post. It could easily be four or five.

SUBSTITUTION: Raul Garcia is coming on for Arda Turan, who is greated with smiles and a congratulatory tap of the hand from him manager. The Turkey international has been a real danger man down the right for Atletico tonight.

Yellow card for Johansson, who impedes his marker and goes into the referee's book. He may regret that foul if Atletico's forwards continue to keep the pressure on his fellow defenders.

SUBSTITUTION: Simon Kroon on for Emil Forsberg. A regular threat in the first half, Forsberg has come in for some feisty treatment from Atletico in the second and their aggression appears to have left its mark. He retires to allow his fellow Swede Kroon to take his place.

Oly break led by Mitroglou but Kasami takes over before being tackled by Vidal on his way back. Marchisio was booked previously for a trip on Mitroglou as he broke before.

GOAL! Atletico 3-0 Malmo (Griezmann) - Atletico have made up for their poor finishing in the first half with a ruthless start to the second! This time it's Griezmann who finds the net with a deflected shot that pings off Malmo's defence and up into the air, arcing down into Olsen's goal. Any more of this and this game may soon resemble some of last night's scorelines!

GOAL! Atletico 2-0 Malmo (Mandzukic) - The Croatian gets on the end of a desperate ball designed to slide across the face of Malmo's goal to double the hosts' lead. An hour's been played and the hosts look well on their way to the three points now.

GOAL! Atletico 1-0 Malmo (Koke) - Simeone's men have their goal and it has been deserved, and coming. Koke sprints through the Malmo box and beyond their defenders to latch onto a nicely weighted ball in from the right from Turan. The Spaniard takes a touch and slides the ball past Olsen who is already sliding in the opposite direction.

The referee blows for half-time and the players head for the tunnel. Looking at the stats, it's all been Atletico so far, with Simeone's team enjoying 65% of the possession. They've also taken 14 shots against the visitor's three, with three on target. Malmo have had none so far.

And Moya has to dive high and wide to make sure it's tipped over! Malmo almost delivered a perfect sucker punch to the opening 45 minuites there. That will be the last play of the half.

Yellow card for Godin, who slides through Thelin of Malmo who looked set to charge towards the Atletico box. The visitors now have a dangerous freekick just outside the area, which could be the last action of the half.

Juve try and get straight back on the attack but give the ball away to Kasami who goes down the left wing and lays it to Masuaku. He is fouled by Lichtsteiner who is given a yellow for his lunge.

Griezmann thought he'd scored the opener there! The Frenchman runs free down the right-hand channel and hits his shot with power. Unfortunately for the forward, his shot cannons off the bottom side of the bar and away from the goal rather than down and over the line. He grabs his head with frustration and then places his hands on his hips as Mandzukic fails to head home the resulting loose ball in the air.

GOAL DISALLOWED! Pirlo whipped in the corner and the header was won at the near post. THe keeper came flapping and Tevez knocked it in at the far post but the ref disallowed it already for a free kick at the near post. I think Maniatis was pushed.

GOAL! Chelsea 3-0 Maribor. The Blues break at phenomenal pace through Hazard, who gets to the edge of the area and waits for the overlap. It comes in the form of Fabregas, and the Spaniard flashes a pass across the goal face… And turned in by Terry! Eh, what's he doing up there? Maribor want a flag but the goal stands!

Laporte's pass to San Jose is sloppy, so the midfielder is forced to take down Brahimi and gets a yellow card.

PENALTY TO CHELSEA! Major controversy. Yes, the ball strikes Mertelj’s hand in the box – but this is an extremely bold call from the referee. The Maribor player was about half a metre away!

Gotze just failing to pick out Lewandowski. But that is a brilliant diving stop by De Sanctis to deny Lewandowski seconds later.

GOAL, BUT CHELSEA ARE IN TROUBLE! Chelsea 1-0 Maribor. Remy feigns to go down the outside, before darting inside and arrowing a low left-footed shot into the corner. Delirium turns to concern moments later – Remy is too injured to celebrate. Surely not another striker injury?
