Atletico Madrid 0 Chelsea 0. All over and the game ends goalless. Still all to play for in the second leg at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea will be much the happier after sitting deep and soaking up a lot of pressure.
Ba wriggles his way to the by-line and earns a very late corner. Mourinho making sure he has cover. Lampard delivers. Courtois claims. Diego Costa slips past Cole. One last chance? Sosa's cross is poor.
Final few seconds. Atletico unable to ask any more questions. Torres still a willing runner for Chelsea. He wins a throw in the Atletico half and the visitors will take their time. Ba goes over to take, then drops the ball. He is booked.
Luiz has to hook off the head of Villa. The ball falls to Diego Costa in a dangerous area. He cuts onto his left foot, and fires high over the top. Not his night. Chelsea change sees Willian make way for Ba.
Filipe Luis tripped by Ramires. Turan cuts inside off the left. Chelsea stand off him 25 yards out. He decides to take on a shot, but cuts across the ball and slices well wide of the target.
Chelsea camped very deep. Juanfran sees a cross deflected up in the air. Dealt with by Luiz. Chelsea can't get out. Gabi floats a cross onto the head of Diego Costa, but again he can't make great contact with his head. Easy save for Schwarzer.
Sosa whips over a low cross left-footed from the right. Villa stoops at the near post, but diverts the ball wide of the post. Opportunity for Schwarzer to run down more time.
Plenty of willing takers. Luiz wins the argument, but is well off target as he fires over the top. He tries to strike the ball like Drogba, but doesn't get enough dip on this effort after it clears the wall.
Torres slipping past tackles again. He has done okay tonight on his own up top. He is tripped by a dangling leg from Miranda 20 yards from goal. Free-kick just left of centre. Late opportunity for Chelsea to snatch this.
Juanfran invited to break out from the back yet again. Ball delivered towards Diego Costa. He is falling as he heads goalwards and diverts the ball onto the back of Cahill. Chelsea refuse to counter at pace.
Schurrle chasing down the right, and winning a throw. Azplilicueta called forward again. He then goes short to Willian. Chelsea with no-one in the box.
Filipe Luis down the left for Diego Costa. Cahill sees the ball out. Final change for the hosts as Raul Garcia is replaced by Villa. He certainly knows the way to goal. Gabi trying his luck from distance, but sees a shot blocked at source.
Schwarzer taking forever with a goal kick. Atletico preparing their final change. They are defending at the moment, with Torres slipping his man. Ramires can't find the loose ball on the edge of the box. Risky by the hosts.
Torres darts into space and has Ramires and Schurrle racing to get up with him. Torres can't beat his man and open up space. Game becoming more stretched. Sosa freed down the right. He hangs over a cross, which Raul Garcia nods onto the roof of the net.
Willian racing towards the corner flag down the left wing. He goes over under pressure from Juanfran and wants a free-kick. He doesn't get one. Atletico press again. Cahill with a diving headed clearance. Sosa can return the ball to the box, where it is smuggled clear at the second attempt.
Good battling by Willian, but the ball is soon given away. Turan leads a counter. Gabi feeds into the feet of Diego Costa. He tries something special on the edge of the box, but sees an ambitious bicycle kick after controlling on his chest drift well wide.
Another cross from Juanfran. Another cross the back post which sails over the top. Raul Garcia unable to hit the target on this occasion.Torres then nips into space, but again the door is slammed in his face.
Atletico have made their second change. Swap in midfield as Suarez makes way for Sosa. Slightly more adventurous from Simeone. He can afford to be as Chelsea are offering nothing going forward.
Ramires bundles Gabi to the deck. Free-kick taken quickly. Ball swung from right to left., and glanced out for a home throw. Juanfran found on the right and teases over a cross to the back post. Turan up above Cahill, but nods wide from six yards out.
Juanfran crosses from deep. Raul Garcia arriving at the back post. The ball drops over the head of Azpilicueta, but a header from 10 yards out loops high over the top. Raul Garcia made contact on his way down.
Pinball in midfield, before the ball breaks through to Schwarzer. Game has lacked a spark all evening. Atletico have done plenty of probing, but have struggled to carve Chelsea open.
Free-kick 30 yards out, dead centre. Gabi interested. He goes low,as the wall jumped. Schwarzer down to his right to get two hands on the ball and push behind. The corner is fed to Koke, who fires a wild cross-shot into the crowd.
Referee waiting for help from his assistants. Mikel is the man called over. He, and Gabi, see yellow. Both of them will now also miss the return leg. No Lampard or Mikel for Chelsea next week. Lampard was the man pulled up for handball and then it all kicked off.
Luiz has slipped back to centre-half alongside Cahill. Work for him to do as Filipe Luis gets in down the left. He squares for Diego Costa, but Luiz can put in a brave block. Handbags out as both sets of players start pushing and shoving in midfield.
Gabi pulled up for a nudge on Willian. Chelsea now make their change, with Schurrle replacing the stricken Terry. Play back under way and Torres nods down in the middle of the box. Courtois can gather.
Schurrle being called back from his warm-up. Terry helped from the field. Mourinho desperately trying to get his house in order. He has plenty of last-minute advice to Schurrle. Change still not made.
Willian back helping out. Diego Costa forced out of the box to gather a loose ball. A poor pass then slips out of play and Terry has gone down again. Another injury blow for Chelsea.
Terry hopping now. He needs to come off. No use to Chelsea on one leg. He's still on the field as it stands. Gabi wide to the right. No room down there.
Safe hands from Schwarzer as he claims Gabi's corner. Terry is now down. Yet another break in play. Diego Costa stood on Terry's boot by accident. Another painful one. Terry struggling, hobbling around.
Godin chips forward. Terry commanding again. Chelsea just tossing the ball forward aimlessly. Juanfran able to get forward again and has Turan in support. His sliding cross is put behind.
Miranda barges through the back of Torres. Free-kick given. Chelsea in no rush again just inside their own half. Yet again, they are unable to string more than two or three passes together.
Willian nips in on halfway, but sees Godin go back to his keeper. Koke then looks for Diego Costa, but no joy for him. He is then in the middle waiting for a cross, but Mikel gets in front of Schwarzer to nod clear. Midfielders doing their job at the back for Chelsea.
Atletico waste the free-kick. Azpilicueta blocks the ball and then chases down field. He forces the hosts back to Courtois. Referee warning Chelsea that they are taking too long to get play restarted when the ball leaves the field.
Flag went up against Diego Costa so Luiz didn't need to clear. He did do well, though, to get back and help out. Lampard with a misplaced header, and he then slides in late on Turan. Yellow card shown and Lampard will miss the return leg at Stamford Bridge.
Gabi over the free-kick. Slow-clapping from the home support. Delivery is meet powerfully by Terry. Ball back to Gabi, who this time fires in low. Raul Garcia forced away from goal. Atletico cross again from the right, and Luiz glances out.
Suarez slides a pass towards Koke just inside the box. Chelsea have enough bodies back. Juanfran crosses from the right. His delivery hits Lampard. Handball given. Another opportunity to load the box from a set-piece wide on the right.
Turn back after three weeks out. Won't be match sharp, but more than capable of making a difference. Azpilicueta with another long throw which is easily dealt with. Atletico building slowly through the middle.
Gabi whips over a cross, onto the head of Terry 10 yards out. The ball then sits up nicely for Diego 25 yards out. A dipping volley drifts wide. His final involvement as he makes way for Turan.
Poor touch again from Willian in midfield. Cole slides in to win the ball off Koke and set off down the left. Torres cuts past three defenders and onto his right foot. A curling effort from the left of the box is straight at Courtois.
Long throw again from Azpilicueta. Looping one helped on by Ramires. Willian collects and sets off towards the corner flag. A heavy touch rolls out of play for a throw. Cole sees the ball back to Schwarzer. Atletico about to make a change.
Lampard's corner is nodded out by Diego Costa. Chelsea gather, but Luiz and Ramires can't find a route down the right flank. Atletico win a throw. Better from Chelsea as they keep the hosts pegged back inside their own half.
Torres slips away from Godin and has Ramires running past him. He has options in the box, but sees the ball deflect behind for a corner. Before Lampard can take, Cahill goes down under pressure from Miranda. Referee has a word.
Gabi curls over a cross. Schwarzer's cross is poor and drops to Diego 20 yards out. He shifts the ball onto his right foot, but then drills straight at Schwarzer. Terry and Cole had got back on the line.
Willian with a over-hit pass which slips away from Mikel. Luiz helps to pick up the pieces. Chelsea still struggling to string anything together. Diego back on the ball and looking right. Juanfran lofts the ball into the box, but it bounces away on the other side.
Koke and Gabi combine on the edge of the box. As the ball loops into the area, Cole nods behind for a corner. Set-piece whipped in on target. Easy take for Schwarzer. Azpilicueta then caught late by Raul Garcia.
Luiz back with us. Torres nudges Miranda off the ball, but sees a decision go against him. Raul Garcia looks for a run from Diego down the left, but his pass is cut out. Atletico try again. Chelsea with 10 behind the ball.
Mourinho perched on the edge of his dugout. He doesn't look too impressed. He certainly doesn't appear to be enjoying his evening. On the field, Luiz is back on his feet and trudging to the sideline. Play back underway. Willian towards the corner flag, then back away from it. Crowded out.
Diego jumped for a high ball and ensured that he got his body in front of Luiz. He did catch the Chelsea man with his shoulder/arm, but there wasn't too much in it. A painful one for Luiz as he holds his jaw, but no real malice. Home supports urging Luiz to get up.
Diego Costa chasing a ball down the left. Cahill can hook clear. Simeone not happy as Diego is then pulled up for leading with an arm on Luiz. Chelsea man stays down.
Azpilicueta with a long throw, but onto the head of Godin. Loose ball falls to Lampard 25 yards out. His dipping effort is on target, but easily handled by Courtois. Atletico's turn to attack. Koke crosses from the left. Mikel nods clear and Raul Garcia is pulled up for a nudge.
Willian tripped by Juanfran after crossing halfway. Free-kick taken short, and then backwards. Luiz forced to run the long way round as he tries to get down the right. He has to settle for a throw - once we get the ball back.
No changes at the interval by either side, so we are as you were. Expect both managers to turn to their benches sooner rather than later. Atletico on the ball immediately. Cole steps out to block their path.
Benjamin Titmus says: 'They've got to open themselves up in the second half Chris. Chelsea can sit deep and wait for the counter. I'm optimistically going for a 0-1: a Torres goal would be nice.'
Stuart Barclay, a Liverpool fan, says: 'Don't think Mourinho can ever complain about another team parking the bus against them ever again after this, hope they play like this on Sunday and we will tear them apart.'
Stan String says: '2nd half to go @chelseafc, take away a 1 goal advantage @Torres to grab the winner.'
Frank Devincenzi says: 'With Atletico dominating possession and with the chances they've created, I'd say 2-0 to the hosts.'
Remember you can also bet in-play at Skybet.com. Atletico are now 11/10 to take the spoils, with Chelsea 7/2 and the draw 11/8. You can get 2/1 on the game to end goalless.

Filipe Luis crosses from the left. Solid header from Terry to clear. Mikel then puts in a diving headed clearance. Chelsea pegged back. Juanfran swings over a cross from the right, but Cahill is there for Chelsea. Torres fells Godin as he tries to help out.
Luiz opts to shoot. Bad choice from a bad angle for a right-footed played. He drills straight into the wall. Atletico can clear their lines as Cole concedes a free-kick.
Good work by Torres as he lures Godin into a wild lunge. Free-kick to Chelsea 25 yards out, level with the right-hand edge of the penalty area. Luiz over it. Wall takes forever to retreat.
Suarez through midfield and finding Diego. He cuts inside onto his left foot and goes for goal from 25 yards out. He doesn't catch the strike cleanly and it trickles through to Schwarzer.
Koke still well forward on the right, and his sliding cross from the by-line is blocked by Cole. No out ball for Chelsea, it just keeps coming back at them. Diego involved again. He squares to Koke. Clipped pass gathered by Schwarzer.
Space for Juanfran on the right. His cross towards Godin is put behind by Mikel. Corner taken by Koke. Poor one which is seen out at the front post by Lampard. Diego then founds on the edge of the area, but unable to find a cross or shot.
Clumsy from a back-tracking Willian as he runs into the back of Diego. Free-kick in a promising position for the hosts - 35 yards out, right of centre. Koke crosses and Mikel nods out to the edge of the box.
Diego with a floated cross from the right. Schwarzer sees it coming and can step off his line to pluck out of the air. Willian can run down the left, but gives the ball away. Chelsea creating little in the final third. Torres isolated and too many misplaced passes.
Mourinho playing ball boy. From the throw, Gabi and Juanfran exchange passes again. Tempting one and it runs through to Diego Costa at the back post. He takes one touch and then volleys goalwards. Effort is blocked and handball shouts fall on deaf ears.
Willian bundled over as he sees the ball behind. He stays down for a few seconds, but is soon back on his feet. Simeone now out in his technical area barking out instructions. A lot more action in the home dugout than there is in the away one.
Juanfran stumbles down the right, gifting the ball to Willian. Long again from the visitors, over the top for Torres to chase. No chance for him again. Head tennis on the edge of the Chelsea box until Gabi takes control. He has Juanfran running in behind Willian, but the ball is ushered behind for a goal kick.
Lampard delivers from the right. Courtois comes again, and this time he takes a confident catch. He was under pressure but was never looking to punch. At the other end, Cole gets up to nod out for a throw.
Azpilicueta tries to cut out a cross-field pass, but misses the ball. Koke can't take advantage. Torres working hard again up top, chasing a long ball and winning a corner.
Koke trots over to take, and goes short. At the third time of asking he does look to cross, but is closed quickly and floats the ball over the top of the crossbar. Poor. He wants a corner but isn't going to get one.
Goal kick given but replays show Schwarzer did get a touch. Atletico coming again, though, and winning a free-kick wide on their right. High boot on Diego.
Ball fired towards Torres by Luiz. Great pass as the Spaniard runs away from goal, but he can't bring it under his spell. Goal kick. Azplicueta pulled out of position as he goes chasing the ball. Atletico go the other well. They work the ball to Suarez 25 yards out. A well-struck shot flashes inches past the post.

Koke drills the ball in very flat. Chelsea can clear comfortably. Delivery needed more air on it. As Ramires looks to ease the pressure, he is upended. Mourinho on the touchline, but stood with his hands in his pockets. No theatrics as yet.
Clumsy by Mikel as he bundles into the back of Diego. Free-kick to Atletico 40 yards from goal, left of centre. Big men sent forward from the back.
Wild clearance from Godin as he hammers up in the air. The ball loops behind him and through to Courtois. Atletico look for Koke, but Diego asks too much of him. Koke tries again and crosses onto the head of Raul Garcia. Cole backs in and forces a header to loop over the top.
Diego lifts the ball in towards Raul Garcia. Terry able to get his body across and ease the Atletico man out of the way. Schwarzer comes to claim. Chelsea trundle forward once more. Measured approach from the visitors.

Suarez with a clever pass into the path of Raul Garcia, who bursts into the box. He gets beyond Cahill and looks to touch back for a colleague, but again the flag has gone up. Right call again, he was just off. Chelsea getting their line right so far.
Schwarzer hammers long. Torres touches on for himself. Too eager to get on the ball and ends up tripping Felipe Luis. Atletico push over halfway again.
Suarez out to Juanfran, who can push on again from right-back. He opts to go square. Diego twists and turns, but can't find a yard of space. Raul Garcia then pokes the ball off the toe of Luiz, and into Diego Costa. Flag goes up - he was a yard off.
Luiz driving down the right, but has few options. Torres starts to come towards him, when the Brazilian wanted him to go in behind. Plenty of frowning going on and waving of arms. Torres is then unable to chase down a looping ball over the top. Courtois slides out.
Decision has gone to Atletico. To be fair to Courtois, Mikel hwas all over him and prevented him from getting to the ball. Free-kick to the hosts. Ball is soon coming back at them, but Torres is forced out of play by a wayward pass.
Schwarzer taking his time with his first touch. Home fans not amused. Better from Chelsea as they move from right to left. Torres tries to run around Juanfran down the left flank, and wins a corner. Lampard takes. Courtois comes and gets nothing on the ball. Cahill nods wide.
Koke goes short - odd choice. Ball fed to Felipe Luis. He whips over a dangerous deliver, which Diego Costa is interested in. Ball glanced off his head 10 yards out and slips behind for a goal kick.
Chelsea forced into a change as Cech trudges off and Schwarzer enters the fray - once he has found his gloves. Big night for the veteran Australian. Atletico still waiting to take their corner. They will want to test the new man right away.
Cech back on his feet and looks like he may be able to continue. Good news for Chelsea. Visitors taking their time, making sure that their number one is okay. Not happening - signal given to make a change. Cech's night is over.
Cech was bundled into late by Raul Garcia as he palmed over the top. Atletico man knew little about it as he hit the deck, but ending up under the Chelsea keeper and forced him into a heavy landing. Schwarzer warming up.
Cahill forced to concede a throw. Atletico force a corner after good work by Filipe Luis. Set-piece taken by Koke. Awkward inswinging effort for Cech to deal with underneath his own crossbar. Chelsea keeper stays down after touching over the top. He is waving at the bench and may not be able to continue.
Mikel with space in the middle of the park. No pace to Chelsea's attack. They edge forwards, then back to Cahill. Home fans whistling every touch. Deafening inside the Vicente Calderon. Music to Chelsea ears.
Torres backing into Miranda, but unable to lay off to Willian. Hosts can break, but Azpilicueta is alive to the danger and nips in ahead of Filipe Luis.
Atletico prepared to play out from the back, trying to draw Chelsea out. Not working at the moment, Visitors still sitting very deep. Heavy touch from Raul Garcia and he ends up tripping Lampard.

Koke drifting wide on the left. He eventually finds enough space to whip over a cross, but dips the ball into the grateful hands of Cech. Ramires then leads a Chelsea charge and plays a one-two with Torres. The ball skips behind for a goal kick.
Raul Garcia takes too quickly. Pushing and shoving between Diego Costa and Terry - not the kind of characters to back down on a night like this. Referee having a word. Has been a bit stop-start so far.
Patient build-up from the hosts. Space for Diego to drift into. Very ambitious effort from a long way out is blocked. Chelsea earn another defensive throw.
Diego off his chest and into the path of Diego Costa. Ramires can get a toe in. Atletico collect again and look right for Juanfran. Ball slips past him and out of play. Terry fires into the feet of Torres, who has Miranda at his back. Chelsea win a throw.
Torres trips Gabi in midfield. Raul Garcia touches on, and goes down. He stays down as well, but gets nothing. He tangled with Terry. Sporting gesture as Atletico give the ball back to Chelsea after Raul Garcia returns to his feet.
Ramires well forward, and glancing into the box. Willian caught on his heels and chases too late. All very tight in midfield as Lampard clips a pass over the top. Torres coming back from an offside position, so the ball runs through to Courtois.
Juanfran pushing past Cole, who gets back at him and concedes a throw. Flag goes up against Raul Garcia as he collects a pass from Juanfran. Opportunity for Chelsea to clear their lines.
Diego Costa slipping past his man and teeing up Diego 25 yards from goal. He crashed home from distance against Barcelona in the last round, but is well off target on this occasion. Chelsea can push on, but Cole wastes a pass in behind.
Atletico straight onto the front foot/ Sloppy pass from Suarez gifts possession to Azpilicueta. He is forced to go long, and Torres can't get near the ball to hold it up. Filipe Luis bombing down the left already, but puts too much on a cross.
Warm embrace between the two coaches on the touchline. Champions League anthem now ringing out. Almost kick-off time. Game faces on!
Chelsea have arrived! Lots of handshakes and hugs in the tunnel before we get underway. All very friendly at the moment. Players now out into the stadium and battle lines are about to be drawn.
Noise turned up again in the Vicente Calderon. The fans are ready, the Atletico players are ready - we're just waiting on Chelsea. Mind games from Mourinho already!
The players are in the tunnel so we will have to leave the feedback there for now. There will be further opportunities to have your say at half-time and at the final whistle.
Philip Mussett says: 'Interesting lineup with Mikel starting, not a big fan of him but with him holding it may allow Lamps to get a bit further forward and launch some rockets from 20+ yards. Must contain Costa tonight and I see a 2-1 win for the blue army. Finals here we come.'
Atletico Madrid continue to be backed in ahead of kick-off, shortening to 4/5 from 11/10 with Sky Bet while Chelsea have drifted out to 4/1. Diego Costa, who has scored in seven of his last eight games and is 1/3 to join the Blues this summer, heads the first goalscorer betting at 4/1 while Fernando Torres is Price Boosted from 9/1 to 10/1 to net first as he faces his former club.
Daniel Lewis says: 'I see this game being very very tight. I'm gonna go for a 2-1 Chelsea win with Torres and Lampard scoring for Chelsea and Costa.'
Taking into account the atmosphere Atletico generate at home games, it is imperative that Chelsea start well and frustrate the locals. It probably won't quieten them down, but it will make the Blues feel a whole lot better about the challenge they face.
Brian Baldwin is tuning in from Hawaii - not too shabby: 'Going to be hard to get any work done while the game is on. I'm hoping Chelsea is up 3-0 in the first 20 minutes, but I think the reality will be a 1-0 Jose Mourinho special. Defensive and counter attacking.'
Liverpool fan getting behind the Blues: 'Hoping for Chelsea to win 1-0 or more. Due to the next Champions League game being 2 days after Liverpool on Sunday, maybe causing a slight distraction for the Liverpool game. C'mon Chelsea.'
A little over half-an-hour until kick-off in the Spanish capital. Keep your pre-match thoughts coming in to Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @Burtytweets.
Nigel Prouten says: 'Costa has scored more goals this season than the entire Chelsea starting line-up. Worrying !!!!!'
Tim Clarke sees Torres doing some damage: 'Good to seeing Torres starting against the club he began at, got a feeling he'll score today. I predict 2-1 Chelsea.'
I'm in a box says via Twitter: 'I think Chelsea fans need to keep their heads up high. We did it in 2012 we can do it again, 2-1 to Chelsea.'
Richie says: 'As much as I'd like an English team to get through to the semis I think Atletico will be too strong tonight, I'd say 3-1.'
Stuart McGlynn says: 'Honestly cannot see Chelsea beating Atletico Madrid tonight. And is it just me or are the cracks beginning to form in Jose's Chelsea side?'
Stewart Clarke fears this may not be a classic: 'Chelsea are officially parking the bus! Mikel starting a game!'
Neil Cheesman is relatively pleased with the Chelsea XI: 'An interesting line-up - interesting to see if Jose goes 4-3-3 which would be better. Good to see Lampard and Cole playing!'
Ryan says: 'Can't see us Blues prevailing tonight without Eto'o. Champions league football is a different standard that PL. Hopefully our back four can hold strong and maybe get an important away goal or two. Fingers crossed.'
Torres is an intriguing subplot tonight - against his former employers. There is, of course, also the presence of Courtois in the home goal against his parent club.
Lloyd Stewart-Francis says: 'Think not conceding in first half will go a long way to deciding how this tie pans out as their fans are entitled to expect a goal in the home tie after their excellent season. With how things seem to work in football do not be surprised if Fernando puts in a top performance against HIS team!!'
Cyril says: 'I see Madrid being too strong for Chelsea. Diego Costa to open the scoring in a 2-0 victory #ChampionsLeague.'
Keith Murray wants to see Chelsea on the front foot: 'I do hope Jose puts out a forward thinking team tonight, Atletico are good but seem to stutter a bit when teams attack them from the start. Hope Chelsea score an away goal and hopefully not lose. Good luck to the BLUES !!!!'
Darren Kelf is quickest out of the blocks with a comment: 'Tough one tonight and I'm hoping heads are not down after Sat defeat. I'm thinking our final was the last round but you never know with Chelsea! 2-1 escape tonight and get them back to the Bridge!'
Chelsea team: Cech, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Terry, Cole, Mikel, Luiz, Lampard, Ramires, Willian, Torres. Subs: Schwarzer, Ake, Kalas, Oscar, Van Ginkel, Schurrle, Ba.
Atletico Madrid team: Courtois, Godin, Filipe Luis, Juanfran, Miranda, Mario Suarez, Koke, Raul Garcia, Gabi, Diego, Diego Costa. Subs: Aranzubia, Alderweireld, Tiago, Arda Turan, Rodriguez, Sosa, Villa.
You can also bet in-play throughout the evening at Skybet.com. Atletico start as strong favourites at 5/6, with Chelsea 4/1 and the draw 5/2. You can get a 1-1 stalemate Price Boosted at 6/1.
Can Chelsea grab an important away goal and head home with a win, or will Atletico prove too strong on home soil? What of Diego Simeone - do his achievements in recent years mean he has to be considered a serious contender to take over at Manchester United? Let me know your thoughts.
How do you see tonight's game going? Feel free to offer your opinion by contacting me direct at Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @Burtytweets.
Chelsea, who edged out Paris St Germain in dramatic fashion at the quarter-final stage, are looking to complete a continental hat-trick this season - having won the Champions League in 2012 and the Europa League in 2013.
Atletico saw off domestic rivals Barcelona in the previous round - to prove their European pedigree - and they remain four points clear at the top of the La Liga standings as they chase a memorable double.
