Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea
Champions League Semi Final, 1st Leg - Live on ITV 19.45
Chelsea seem to have lost their way domestically, with the title slipping further out of reach at the weekend with a shock home defeat to bottom of the table Sunderland. The 1st time they have lost at home in the League under Mourinho in both spells as manager. It's interesting to note that all their defeats in the league have come within 3 days of champions league matches where they have performed superbly on the road so far to set up this meeting. This match now takes on added significance as the Champions League is the only realistic trophy for Jose and the Chelsea fans to aim for
Atletico Madrid are flying domestically and in Europe and accounted for Barcelona in the last round, a shock for many outside of Spain, however a domestic and European double could yet be on the cards for them. This will be a fascinating tie with 2 teams both going full pelt for a win. bit of added intrigue is Torres return to the club where he was viewed with a near godlike status before his big money move to Liverpool.
Chelsea are not given much hope by the bookies of a win here, and are around 4/1 across the board, Madrid are favourites at 4/5 in the main while the draw is 5/2 Chelsea will probably look to keep themselves in the tie and then rely on their strong home form to see them through to the final... although that loss to Sunderland creates a few doubts!
