Atletico Madrid vs. Chelsea, UEFA Champions League Semi-finals, Leg 1, 9:45pm GMT.
Football fans all over the world look in anticipation and excitement over to Madrid's Vicente Calderon Stadium tonight as the UEFA Champions League semi-finals commence, as home team Atletico Madrid hosts Chelsea for the first leg. Both teams are currently at the top of their national leagues, fighting fiercely to claim championship titles this season.
Both teams come to this meeting after having displayed very impressive performances in the quarter-finals. Chelsea made an heroic comeback in its second leg against Paris Saint Germain while Atletico Madrid ditched out the impressive Barcelona over the two legs. Both sides are coming more than ready for this clash although Atletico might miss Thibaut Courtois and Diego Costa which are uncertain due to injury and loan availability questions.
Chelsea has been flying high with the "Special One" boss Jose Mourinho. Just nine months ago he left Real Madrid and went back to his old London club, and Atletico Madrid was one of his ex-team's biggest rivals. This might work in favor for Chelsea as the manager holds a good knowledge of their competitors tonight. Chelsea has grim memories of its meeting with Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup two years ago, when the Spaniards routed The Blues 4-1. Whatever happens, we're up for a great game tonight.
