  • GOOOOAAAAAALLLLL!!!! That wasn't in the script!!!! A delightful first-time pass from the outside of Eguaras' boot sees Ramazani race clear of the defence, bring the ball down and smash it beyond Courtois into the bottom corner!!! A fantastic first goal back in the top flight sees Almeria go 1-0 up against the champions, and Ramazani's acrobatic celebration was more than fitting!

  • Almeria head a corner clear and Ramazani races down the left. He's cynically dragged back by Camavinga, who is penalised and booked, and the Madrid midifelder can have absolutely no complaints!

  • Sadiq is also shown a yellow card, for an earlier forceful challenge on Nacho that the referee played advantage on.

  • Tchouameni's league debut for Real comes to an end, and he's replaced by a fellow big-money signing of summers past in Eden Hazard.

  • GOOOAAALLL!!! There it is!!! Real finally get their breakthrough in scrappy fashion as Vinicius races through, drawing a save from Martinez! It skews back to Benzema, who finds Vazquez in space, and the right-back stabs the ball home from 10 yards to lock us up at 1-1! You wondered if a goal would ever come, but now it has, Real will look to up the ante even further and turn one potential point into three.

  • Sadiq's been a brilliant foil for Ramazani in Almeria's two-pronged attack, but he comes off now for Portugal international Dyego Sousa.

  • GOOOOAAALLLL!!!! WHAT A STRIKE!!! And what an introduction!!! Alaba steps up as casually as you like, with his very first touch, to smash the free-kick straight into the top corner to make it 2-1 to the champions! What a free-kick, and for the first time in this game Martinez had no answer to that one!
