    CHAMPIONS LEAGUE LIVE: Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea

    Probable Lineups:

    Atletico Madrid (4-4-2): Courtois, Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Luis, Adrian, Fernandez, Tiago, Koke, Costa, Villa

    Atletico Madrid have had an amazing season thus far, sitting on top of La Liga ahead of Barcelona and Real Madrid as well as playing in the UEFA Champions League semi-final. The Spanish side have just come off a 2-0 home win over Elche and will be confident of getting a result against 2011/2012 winners Chelsea. Coach Diego Simeone’s team do not have any major injury concerns, with Diego Costa fit to face the Blues. It is still unsure whether Thibault Courtois, Atletico’s Belgian stopper, can feature in the game as he is on loan from Chelsea with a contract clause saying he cannot compete against his former club. Arda Turan is currently a doubt for the match, but however, he could still be deemed fit.

    Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Terry, Cole, Lampard, Ramires, Willian, Oscar, Schurrle, Torres 

    Jose Mourinho has been publicly criticizing referee Mike Dean for Chelsea’s first ever home loss under his guidance, falling 2-1 to Sunderland at Stamford Bridge. They have now fallen five points behind league leaders Liverpool but the Portuguese manager does seem to prioritize the Champions League over other competitions. Branislav Ivanovic will miss the match with a suspension and Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard is sidelined with an injury. Nemanja Matic and Mohammed Salah are ineligible for the fixture.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    The last time these two teams met Radamel Falcao scores a hat-trick in the UEFA Super Cup final. Chelsea will hope Diego Costa isn’t as ruthless.

    Danger Man

    Torres

    He may be considered a Chelsea flop, but Fernando Torres does score some important goals in Europe for the Blues. Now he is returning to his former club, and he would love to show his old fans why they still want him back at the Vicente Calderon.
