Live Updates

Hello and welcome to Tuesday's Champions League action as Real Madrid take on Bayern Munich and Leicester City take on Atletico Madrid in what could be their final European night at the King Power for quite some time.
The big news from the Leicester camp is that captain Wes Morgan is back in the starting line up in the absence of the suspended Robert Huth...
And Atletico's line up...
There's no Gareth Bale for Real Madrid
But Lewandowski is back for Bayern Munich!
So some big decisions in those line ups - most notably no Bale but there is Lewandowski! What impact will that have at the Bernabeu? Real Madrid are still favourites to go through but no BBC will make Bayern more confident. However, Isco replacing the Welshman is hardly weakening the side too much, given his recent form.
And in the night's other game - Can Leicester do the impossible just one more time? Simeone seems to think so and has gone with a more defensive line-up, dropping Fernando Torres and playing Griezmann more centrally. Leicester have to force the issue tonight meaning Atleti will be looking to play on the break.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice last week and if he went one better and bagged a hat-trick this evening he will be the first person to hit 100 Champions League goals.
Here's confirmation of how Leicester will line up this evening - the classic 4-4-2. None of this three at the back nonsense!
Just 15 minutes until kick off in tonight's two Champions League quarter-finals. Will Leicester make history? Or will Atletico reach their third semi-final in four seasons? Will Real Madrid remain on course to be the first team to retain the Champions League? Or will Carlo Ancelotti have the last laugh over the side that sacked him?
Thoughts of our chief football writer...
Oh dear - Leicester are setting off fireworks now. What's in store if they actually go through?!
2 mins: This is end-to-end stuff at the Bernabeu already! Bayern, like Leicester, are pushing for the the goal, they need to score, so expect the Germans to be the more attacking of the two sides.
5 mins: A familiar sight... The Cristiano Ronaldo stance over a free-kick about 20 yards out. History will tell us this is likely to be into the wall or the crowd but you never know... Nope, I did know, it was into the wall. Chance wasted. 
8 mins: Chance! At the other end Thiago's goal-bound shot from five yards is blocked and Robben fires his follow-up into the ground and it ends up rippling the side netting. 
Over in Leicester, the Foxes are looking to stretch Atletico's sturdy defence with Vardy running the channels. It's pretty even there so far...
15 mins: Things have calmed down somewhat at the Bernabeu and Real are starting to look more attacking. Marcelo forces a corner and a neat interchange with Ronaldo before Navas rushes out of goal in Neuer-esque fashion to stop Robben.
20 mins: It's back-to-the-wall defending here from Real now. Bayern are swinging in cross after cross after cross but can't find the head of Robert Lewandowski. Yet.
