Champions League final clockwatch
All the action as it happened in Wednesday night's Champions League final, where Real Madrid edge out Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 in a nail-biting game.
2142: The final whistle brings a huge sigh of relief for Real Madrid, who celebrate their centenary year with their ninth European triumph.
2140: Bastuk's shot is superbly parried by substitute keeper Castillas. From the corner, keeper Butt again makes his presence felt and Ramolo's shot is parried by Castillas. Another corner follows and Ramolo heads goalwards, only for Castillas to block with his legs again.
2139: Real are holding on desperately. The Spanish side look nervous and the final whistle cannot come quickly enough for Vicente Del Bosque's side.
2137: Bayer goalkeeper Butt charges forward for a free-kick and connects with a header, only to see the ball bounce wide.
2135: The fourth official indicates a whacking seven minutes of injury time.
2135: A sad end to the night for the highly-impressive Lucio, who limps off to be replaced by Babic.
2133: Roberto Carlos is yellow-carded for time wasting.
2132: Only two minutes of regular time remain, but Placente's hopeful shot is well wide as Bayer begin to look desperate.
2131: It's end-to-end stuff now. Solari gets into a shooting position but sees his deflected shot brilliantly parried by Butt.
2130: Neuville swings over a dangerous cross from the left and Berbatov gets between the two central defenders but heads over the bar when well placed to equalise.
2127: Ballack skips past Helguera but fires over the bar.
2125: McManaman's run and cross is missed by keeper Butt and Zivcovic sticks a boot out to prevent Morientes from being presented with an open goal.
2116: Real replace central midfielder Makelele with Brazilian Conceicao.
2112: Real Madrid keeper Cesar, injured in an inoccuous looking challenge by Lucio, is replaced by Iker Casillas.
2110: Bayer right-back Sebescen is withdrawn and replaced by Ulf Kirsten
2105: Luis Figo, still recovering from injury, is substituted after 61 inneffective minutes, with England reject Steve McManaman replacing him on the left side of midfield.
2101: Solari crosses towards Morientes, but his teasing centre is punched clear by Butt.
2058: Bayer continue to press and Figo's crashing challenge on Ballack concedes another free-kick, which again comes to nothing.
2056: Helguera catches Berbatov to concede a free-kick 35 yards out. But Ballack hits his free-kick into the wall and Schneider's follow-up is also blocked.
2050: The Champions League final is back under way, with Real leading despite an unconvincing first-half display.
2033: The half-time whistle sounds with a buzz still echoing around Hampden Park following Zidane's sublime strike.
2032: Salgado's foul on Neuville earns the game's first booking.
2031: Madrid are back in front with a remarkable goal from Zinedine Zidane. Santiago Solari's chip over the defence sends Roberto Carlos scampering clear down the left and he hooks in a cross for Zidane to volley left-footed beyond the despairing dive of Butt.
2028: Madrid again fail to deal with a free-kick, but Sebescen's awkward attempt at goal sails harmlessly wide.
2024: Thomas Brdaric is forced to limp off with a foot injury on 38 minutes, Berbatov replacing him up front.
2020: Basturk's cute ball over the Real defence is pulled back by Neuville, but Ballack shoots horribly wide from a dangerous position.
2016: Zinedine Zidane, previously anonymous in this final, sets off on a run but sees his shot comfortably blocked by Lucio.
20125: Ballack's pass puts Neuville clear but he is called back for offside just as he is about to pull the trigger.
2013: The first half is being littered with errors by both sides, most of them coming from the Spaniards.
2010: Morientes turns inside Zivkovic and bends a shot which Butt comfortably deals with.
2007: Lucio lets fly again, but this time his shot is blocked on the edge of the area. But Leverkusen continue to press and Bodaric gets in behind Roberto Carlos, only to see his clipped shot well saved by Cesar.
2002: Morientes looks to go round goalkeeper Butt, who reacts in the nick of time to flick the ball away with his outstretched leg.
2000: Suddenly, the Germans are level. Brazilian defender Ferreira Lucio steals forward at a free-kick and steers a flicked header beyond goalkeeper Cesar from Schneider's precision cross.
1954: Real Madrid are in front on eight minutes with a ridiculously simple goal. Roberto Carlos launches a long throw behind the Leverkusen defence and, with the Germans sleeping, Raul steals in and scuffs a shot beyond the leaden-footed goalkeeper.
1952: Luis Figo's forward charge is checked by Ramelow, but Real's free-kick in a dangerous position comes to nothing.
1946: Favourites Real get the final under way, looking to take the game to their unfancied German rivals from the first whistle.
1945: Hampden observes an immaculate one minutes' silence in honour of Valeriy Lobanovsky, the legendary Dynamo Kiev coach who died this week.
A tremendous atmosphere builds at Hampden Park, the scene of Real Madrid's famous 1960 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.
Real Madrid coach Vincente del Bosque is able to name a full-strength team for the Champions League final.
French midfielder Claude Makalele has been a doubt prior to the match but is passed fit to play.
