Full time and Real Madrid win 3-0 to reach the last 16 of the Champions League. Sheriff were brave, but ultimately, they ran out of steam. Thanks for joining me.
Another late save from the Sheriff keeper to deny Asensio.
SAVE! Athanasiadis denies Asensio from point-blank range after Marcelo's cross. He should have scored.

As expected, this game has lost its spark. Real Madrid have a corner cleared.
Spurt of chances for Sheriff, as they hit the post through Till, who meant that as a cross. They are not lying down.
CLEARANCE! Costanza flicks the ball away from Rodrygo as he was about to rifle the ball into the net.

- GoalKarim BenzemaReal Madrid
GOOOOOOAAAALLLL! Benzems takes a touch and finds the corner from the edge of the area. He is sharp. 0-3.
Casemiro is not particularly good at shooting, as evidenced there. Effort from didtance isn't troubling Athanasiadis.
Real Madrid have dropped the pace. They've gor a tight grip on the game, but can't lose focus.
Good play by Sheriff and Bruno was again at the heart of it. The move comes to an end as Costanza fires wide.
- 2nd Half
Sheriff get us back underway. I can't see any changes...
- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME! Kroos had the last kick. Madrid have been effective and efficient. They lead 2-0.
- GoalToni KroosReal Madrid
GOOOOOALL!! Kroos' strike comes off the bar and lands over the line... just. Lovely finish. 0-2 Madrid.
This time it is Benzema,. and it iis into the wall, tamely...
Kroos fouled. Free kick Madrid. Alaba perks up....
Speak of the devil. GHe finds Carvajal, who volleys just over. Much better from the visitors.
Because Sheriff are crowding the middle of the pitch, it makes sense for Vinicius to hug the touchline. But Real aren't fimding him enough and he isn't effecting the game.
Rare break for Sheriff, and it ends in a wasted shot from Till, who really should have picked a better option.
Madrid have taken the lead at an ideal time. Sheriff can't exude themselves so much now.
- GoalDavid AlabaReal Madrid
GOOOOAAAALLLL!! Alaba's free kick deflects off Cristiano and gives Athanasiadis no chance. 0-1 Madrid.
- Yellow cardFernando CostanzaFC Sheriff
Costanza has been booked for a foul on Casemiro and Real Madrid have a free kick in shooting range.
Real Madrid have stepped it up, granted, but Sheriff have also retreated and have been much less threatening for the last 10 minutrs or so. Still 0-0.
The corner idn';t cleared far sand eventually the ball makes it Rodrygo, who clips the ball into Benzema, but he can;t keep his header down.
Lovely skill from Rodrygo on the right, but Dulanto is there to concede the corner.
Madrid are having to be very patient here. It is a very even game.
SHOT! Rodrygo shoots from the edge of the area after a lovely move involving Modric and Carvajal, but it is well held by Athanasiadis.
Sheriff are not only effectively going direct in attack, but they are keeping shape in defence. Vinicius just won a corner, but it was cleared well.
Sheriff are getting the set pieces but not taking advantage of them.
They go short and recycle the play. When it comes back, Traore flicks on for Kolovos, who wins another corner.
Sheriff are going direct and getting in past Madrid's midfield. Traore is fouled by Militao, and Mendy puts the kick out for a corner.
Benzema puts the ball in the net after Kroos' shot is parried. Offside, but Madrid are stepping it up here.
Clearance for Sheriff just before Rodrygo can square to Benzema for a tap-in. The Brazilian was found by a wonderful Modric pass.
That moment could be a snapshot of this game for Sheriff. Their chances will be few and far between.
Till's kick is cleared by Carvajal.
Bruno counters for Sheriff and is eventually brought down by Mendy. Free kick in a great position to the right of the box.
Sheriff are pressing high, but Real are settling into possession.
- 1st Half
Madrid kick us off!
That music... goosebumps. We are ready!
The players are entering the pitch...
Just under 10 minutes until kick off!
Real Madriid are warming up in Tiraspol!
Sheriff, meanwhile, have lost their last two games in Europe after a strong start to the campaign, but an unlikely Europa League spot is very much within reach, especially with Inter currently beating Shakhtar Donetsk.
A repeat may be less likely, though. Madrid are in fine form, winning five and drawing one of their last six games in all competitions.
Real Madrid know they'll be in a strong position to win Group D and will qualify for the knockout stages with a good result tonight. They are certainly expected to get it, but Sheruiff have already beaten them once this season, winning 2-1 at the Bernabeu on matchday 2. The man who scored a late winner in that game, Sebastien Thill, starts tonight.
Real Madrid go strong!
Courtois; Mendy, Alaba, Militao, Carvajal; Kroos, Casemiro, Modric; Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Benzema
Sheriff line up as follows.
Athanasiadis; Costanzo, Dulanto, Hurtado, Cristiano; Addo, Thill; Kolovos, Bruno, Andersson; Traore.
