That's it. Full time. Real Madrid comfortably outplayed Barcelona over two legs, and they were in control from the first whistle tonight. Barcelona have some brilliant players, but they are alarmingly far from a brilliant side now.
There will be three minutes or so of added time, assuming there are no more big stoppages.

Digne comes on to replace Alba.
Navas comes flying into Suarez as he runs away from goal. Suarez acts like he's near death, and he might have a shout for a penalty, but he was obviously offside. He limps away.

Theo is on for Asensio.
Benzema looks in some discomfort.

Real Madrid are just keeping the ball now, waiting for it to be over.
Alba crosses into the box for Roberto, and while he stretches towards the ball with the goal gaping, the chance goes begging.

Asensio scoots into the box towards the touchline, and pulls back the ball, but it comes to nothing.
Semedo is high up the pitch on the right, into the box, and he lifts a cross towards the goal that Navas can dive to claim, under no challenge.

- OffGerard PiquéFC Barcelona
- OnNélson SemedoFC Barcelona
Semedo comes on for Barcelona. Pique leaves to boos, as one might expect. Pique looks a touch uncomfortable, so that could be an injury.
Yes. As much as Paulinho has reportedly improved over the last couple of years, you have to question where things are headed when they make transfers like this.

We go again.
- End of 1st Half
Half time. See you in 15 minutes.
Benzema collects the ball 35 yards out. He turns towards goal, drives towards the box, and just fro the edge he sends a shot just over the bar.
Real are simply happy to keep the ball and wait for inevitable mistakes.
Vazquez fires in a shot from an angle that Ter Stegen stops.
- GoalKarim BenzemaReal Madrid
GOAL! Real Madrid 2-0 Barcelona. Benzema scores - A simple goal. Marcelo rolls a low cross into the box. Umtiti is there, looking at the ball. Benzema is there, running towards it instead. He gets a toe to it, flicking it up, and hooking it into the bottom corner from close range.
The back heels are coming out from the Barcelona backline now.
A defensive mix-up puts Vazquez through on goal, and he hits a rising shot past Ter Stegen which crashes against the post.

The free kick is dinked in to Pique, but Carvajal is on hand to cover and head behind.

Asensio tumbles on the halfway line with Roberto near. Asensio had been close to breaking free down the left, but the referee isn't convinced.

Gomes chests down a pass into the box, but the ball ricochets into his arm, possibly, and the ref gives a free kick.
Vazquez chases a Kroos diag, as the kids call it, which flies out of play.
Real Madrid continue to push, but they concede a foul with a late tackle from Kroos. At the other end, Suarez gets free, behind the defence on his right, and his cross in front of goal rolls away from danger.
Real Madrid are in control again. Barcelona are looking sluggish in the opening stages.
Messi sends in a guff cross from the right, and Navas takes a risk by shielding it out of play, winning a throw.
Free kick on the right of the box. Kroos will cross.
- GoalMarco AsensioReal Madrid
GOAL! Real Madrid 1-0 Barcelona. Asensio scores - Right, let's all go home. Asensio lurks 30 yards out. Nobody is near him, so he strikes a shot at goal that looks set to fly over, Ter Stegen looks at it briefly, and it flips down into the net and past the 'keeper.
Benzema escapes Pique for a moment, and crosses in from the right. His cross is off-target and cleared.
Asensio pulls the ball back for Modric, steaming into the box, and he pokes a fierce strike into Umtiti's side.
- 1st Half
The match gets underway.
Kick off in five minutes, so time for a prediction: 2-1 to Barcelona. Let me know yours.
You can tweet me at @lxndrnthrtn on Twitter throughout the match.
Barcelona have Messi and Suarez in attack, and Gerard Deulofeu has found himself on the bench after a tepid display a few days ago. They will have to seriously improve.
For Real Madrid, it's a touch dull for their line up. Bale is on the bench, as is Casemiro. But they have a two-goal advantage, it makes no difference to them if they simply kill the game for an hour and a half.
Ronaldo is deeply hacked off with the ban, but in truth, he could expect little else.
Real Madrid are without Cristiano Ronaldo for tonight, and four more league games, after he pushed a referee in the last game.
Before the hardcore analysis gets underway, take a look at the latest Barcelona transfer window news.
