It could have been a tough last few minutes had Falcao scored from the spot, but it's all over, and Atletico are into the last 16!
Stay tuned across Eurosport with the 8pm matches nearing kick-off!
- Yellow cardFilipe LuísAtlético Madrid
Another attempt from Tielemans, and another save from Oblak on his 50th European appearance.
Three minutes added on, as Luis goes in the book too!
Oblak out to preserve that clean sheet. He parries away a free-kick from Tielemans.
- Yellow cardThomas ParteyAtlético Madrid
11 vs 10 to end the game now - but Falcao spurned the chance to get Monaco back in it.
Now Thomas goes in the book for the hosts.
Falcao fires wide! He sends Oblak the wrong way but he cannot find the target on his return to Atletico.
Oblak goes up to console Falcao after that miss. Poor spot-kick.
- Red cardStefan SavicAtlético Madrid
Penalty to Monaco! And it's a second yellow for Savic! He's off!
Very, very harsh call as he blocks Tielemans' effort with his arm, which was right by his chest!
Grandsir clips the heels of Vitolo and the hosts have a free-kick less than 25 yards out...
Griezmann wants it, and his effort bends just a yard high and wide of the top corner.
CLOSE! Almost a stunner from Thomas, who connects with the ball beautifully from 25 yards out, but it's too close to Benaglio as the Monaco 'keeper tips it away.
Atletico are slipping down the gears here. They're in cruise control. [Insert a third car reference].
A nice touch.
Monaco have improved in the second half but this is typical game management from Atletico, who are 20 minutes away from booking a spot in the last 16.
- OffÁngel CorreaAtlético Madrid
- OnSaúlAtlético Madrid
Atletico call on Saul. A nice luxury to have.
- Yellow cardGiulian BianconeAS Monaco
Grandsir skips past Luis down the right and his cross is turned away for a corner. Monaco continue to press with a second corner, but fail to trouble Oblak.
Biancone goes down for a tug on Correa's shirt.
Thuram-Ulien joins Massengo in midfield. That is now two 17-year-old's in the centre of the park away to Atletico Madrid.
- OffAleksandr GolovinAS Monaco
- OnKhéphren Thuram-UlienAS Monaco
Andddd another 17-year-old comes on.
- OffNacer ChadliAS Monaco
- OnSofiane DiopAS Monaco
Another debut for another 18-year-old.
- Yellow cardStefan SavicAtlético Madrid
Savic goes in the book for elbowing Raggi in the chest from a corner. The ref was watching them the whole time having already blown up once.
Another save, this time down the other end as Benaglio denies Griezmann from a tight angle. Way too much space for the forward in the Monaco box.
SAVE! Well, Falcao could have had his first already... He turns majestically inside the box but shoots straight at Oblak!
A cross is flicked towards the back post but Raggi can not get a meaningful connection.
Danny Mills on co-comms suggests only a Falcao hat-trick will help Monaco. I mean, he's not wrong.
- OffMoussa SyllaAS Monaco
- OnRadamel FalcaoAS Monaco
Applause all around the Wanda as former striker Falcao comes on for Monaco - more than five years after he left the club. Let's see how many touches he gets up front!
- Yellow cardYouri TielemansAS Monaco
Tielmans is the first player in the book for Monaco after a late tackle on Correa
Penalty to Atletico? The referee says no as Arias hits the deck - doesn't help that he makes an unnatural movement when it did actually look like a foul.
Almost another costly deflection as Griezmann rolls it over for Thomas, but it trickles just wide for a corner, which Atleti play short before losing the ball.
Positive play from Monaco, finally, as Grandsir's cross finds Sylla and his header deflects wide. But the corner is played short again and once more the visitors see a chance go begging.
Atleti quick out the blocks in the second half, but Correa is flagged for offside from Griezmann's through ball. Would have been some start.
- 2nd Half
And there goes the whistle for the second half... Any way back for Monaco?
Would be my guess.
- OffKokeAtlético Madrid
- OnVitoloAtlético Madrid
Simeone content enough to bring off Koke too - Vitolo replaces him.
- End of 1st Half
Griezmann a bit miffed after being booked for a tackle on Golovin. He takes the leg before taking the ball though, so it's probably the right call.
No added time. And that's the half! Atletico cruising.
Luis almost getting in on the act after playing a couple of one-twos, but he over-runs the ball when trying to skip past Jemerson.
The stats will tell you Monaco are yet to have a shot this match. A very poor half.
Griezmann and Koke are enjoying themselves out there tonight, and the latest move draws applause from the home fans. It results in Griezmann curling an attempt over, but again the build-up play was very nice indeed.
Koke ghosts through the Monaco defence and crosses in from the byline, but Benaglio stretches out to catch the ball.
Monaco win a corner, but play it short and then fail to get a decent cross into the box. Just not their night, or season, it would seem.
Lemar turns Biancone and the hosts have a free-kick out wide. Lemar it is who will cross it in... but it's Jemerson who heads clear.
Griezy does it. 11 in 11 at home in the Champions League.
Atleti can turn on the style at a canter here. Griezmann tries to return the favour for Correa, but the ball across doesn't quite find its intended target.
- GoalAntoine GriezmannAtlético Madrid
GOAL! And a lovely move from Atletico!
Griezmann has his 21st Champions League goal. He initially slips in Correa, who loses Jemerson before finding Griezmann once more, and the Frenchman takes a touch before using the outside of his foot to bend it into the far corner.
Griezmann earns Atleti a corner, but it's Biancone who rises highest to clear for Monaco.
Atleti looking extremely comfortable so far.... until Savic slips at the back and Sylla has the ball in the opponent's half. However, his decision-making is poor and the pass can only find an Atletico player. Decent chance to counter.
Game has lost its edge somewhat in the past few minutes. The impetus is on Monaco to take this game to the hosts now - but no sign of that yet.
And it is indeed no longer Koke's goal. It took a huge deflection off Badiashile - OG, I'm afraid. The powers that be have spoken.
Nice try, but nowhere near from Griezmann. He volleys over from 25 yards out after Koke heads it back to the Frenchman. Too tempting not to, really.
It's men against boys so far. Atletico are running the show, Monaco are chasing shadows. A long 80 minutes left, you would think.
Golovin takes down Luis from behind and Atleti have a free-kick some 30 yards out...
OFF THE POST! And that's only a whisker wide from Lemar. He's actually skimmed the outside of the post! Very close to a second.
It was never going to be easy for a Monaco side who have fielded four teenagers. It has just got that bit tougher.
Mission impossible? There is arguably no worse side in European football to go 1-0 down against.
Looks like the effort came off Badiashile before trickling into the net, Koke might be lucky to still be calling that goal his come the end of the night.
- GoalKokeAtlético Madrid
GOAL! Atletico lead after 90 seconds!
Koke's strike from 25 yards out takes a huge deflection and leaves Benaglio no chance. Horror start for Monaco.
- 1st Half
And away we go at the Wanda. Can Henry's young Monaco side upset the odds? Let's find out...
Tick, tock. Champions League anthem o'clock. Players are out, we're almost ready to go.
Ten minutes to go then. Tuck into Eurosport’s latest look at the Euro Papers before the action gets under way…
Negative Atletico? Manager Diego Simeone reckons they deserve more respect...
"Football is wonderful because everyone can have an opinion and make judgements about what they think and see.
"I am very respectful and always have been. Sometimes, there isn't respect for our ways, but you can't change people."
Thierry Henry finally experienced that winning feeling as Monaco boss on the weekend, as a 1-0 victory at Caen handed them a first win since their first game of the season.
Crazy, really. It’s Game No 8 with Henry at the helm tonight – what he’d give for another W.
So. Permutations. Dortmund and Atleti have nine points with two games left, Brugge four, and Monaco one.
Atleti will qualify if they win tonight, but if they slip-up, they will still reach the knockout stages unless Brugge upset Dortmund later in Germany.
Dortmund currently top in Group A, and will be favourites to remain so as they do not have to play Atleti again.
A few big-hitters are missing for Atletico, with Diego Costa, Diego Godin and Jose Giminez all out. Still a strong side, though, and for Monaco, Radamel Falcao is not yet fit to start, but is among the subs.
Monaco XI: Benaglio, Biancone, Raggi, Jemerson, B Badiashile, Tielemans, Massengo, Grandsir, Chadli, Golovin, Sylla
Subs: L Badiashile, Bennasser, Diop, Henrichs, Gouano, Thuram-Ulien, Falcao
Atletico XI: Oblak, Luis, Hernandez, Savic, Arias, Rodrigo, Thomas, Koke, Lemar, Griezmann, Correa
Subs: Adan, Saul, Gelson, Vitolo, Moya, Joaquin, Kalinic
Evening all! Still getting caught out by these early Champions League kick-offs? Me too…
It’s all about Atletico Madrid v Monaco here before the main course later tonight, but it’s not a bad starter.
Atleti are fighting with Dortmund for top spot in Group A, while Monaco have just one point to their name after four games, and desperately need a win to chase down Club Brugge in third.
