It's all over folks. In the second-leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final, Atletico Madrid stormed into Stamford Bridge and took down Chelsea 3-1. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, is without a doubt, a very butthurt man right now. After blowing the Premiership title by losing to Sunderland at home earlier this month, Chelsea put all their eggs in the Champions League basket, and they've failed to be vindicated.
Mourinho went overtly defensive in his tactics, starting five natural defenders, using two of them (César Azpilicueta and David Luiz) in midfield. The bus was certainly reared to be parked for Chelsea today, and for a while, it worked. Fernando Torres opened the scoring after Willian's tricky work created the opportunity, putting Chelsea up 1-0—a result that, if it had held, would've seen Chelsea through to the final.
Eight minutes later, Chelsea's advantage was wiped out by Adrián's top-shelf finish.
Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid will be the first time in Champions League history that two teams from the same city will contest the final.— Squawka Football (@Squawka) April 30, 2014
