Modric takes his leave, with Lucas Vazquez introduced into the midfield mix. That will run the clock down a little more for the hosts.
90' +2 Valencia win themselves a corner out on the right-hand side, but Navas comes out to claim the delivery very well indeed. The away side are pressing high and trying to force the issue, but if anything it is leaving them far more open at the back.

Substitution Fabián Ariel Orellana Valenzuela Zakaria Bakkali
88' Real Madrid are back ahead and looking at taking three points here, with another late goal having a bearing on LaLiga's title race. Casemiro drives into space and tries to shoot from the edge of the penalty area, but his effort is charged down well by Mangala.
86' José Gayá enters the game and replaces Toni Lato.
Marcelo has scored a goal for Real Madrid! Assist by Álvaro Morata.
Lato takes his leave, with Jose Gaya returning from injury to feature at left-back for the last five minutes.
Carvajal drills a low cross in from the right-hand side, but Marco Asensio can't get across his man to fire home a close-range finish. The home fans are urging their players on, as although a draw wouldn't be the end of the world, it would definitely give Barcelona added belief.
GOOOOOOOAL! MARCELO MAKES IT 2-1! Morata clips a cross in from the right byline, with the ball sailing to the edge of the penalty box. The Brazilian left-back checks inside and onto his right foot, before slotting a very neat finish beyond Diego Alves. Huge goal for the hosts.
Morata does well to dig out a cross, but finding Marcelo definitely wasn't his intention!
84' Real Madrid are now left with the need to score again, after Valencia make a set play count. The hosts haven't really been tested this afternoon, with Los Che needing to step out of cruise control and respond. Voro's men have something to hold onto now.
82' Dani Parejo has scored a goal for Valencia!
L. Modrić gets yellow.
GOOOOOOOOOOAL! PAREJO MAKES IT 1-1! WHAT A HIT! From the best part of 25 yards, the Spanish midfielder curls a beautiful free-kick effort into the top-left corner. Navas got a bit of a hand on it, but couldn't push the ball to safety! Inspiration from the visiting captain.
Modric gets a yellow card for taking too long to march out the 10 yards away from the free kick.
81' We're into the final 10 minutes in Madrid, with the hosts still holding onto their delicate lead. Casemiro concedes a free-kick around 25 yards out from his own goal, with Dani Parejo having the chance to shoot. Real Madrid need a second goal to kill the spirits of Los Che.
79' Chance for Ronaldo! Marco Asensio curls a good delivery in towards the back post, with the Portugal international gambling to get on the end of it. Both the Real Madrid forward and Lato collide with the upright, after a shot from the former is directed shy of the target. Both players are down after that clash with the woodwork.
