Atlético will be joining city rivals Real Madrid in the Champions League final after they beat José Mourinho’s Chelsea 1-3 on Wednesday evening! The Premier League side had the edge after the 0-0 draw in the Calderón stadium a week ago, but Simeone’s team showed they meant business when Koke lobbed a cross-come-shot over Schwarzer on to the crossbar early on. With ten minutes to go to the break Fernando Torres put the locals ahead after picking up a pass from Azpilicueta and firing in a shot which took a deflection off Miranda, the Spanish international striker refusing to celebrate out of respect for his old side. However with half time approaching Adrián (a surprise inclusion in the starting line-up) levelled it with an important away goal, bouncing a shot past Schwarzer after Juanfran laid a long ball from Tiago back across goal. Courtois had to be at his best to keep out a Terry header early on in the second half, but with an hour on the clock Diego Costa was tripped in the area by substitute Eto’o, and Costa stepped up himself to fire home the spot kick. David Luiz headed Willian’s free kick against the bar soon afterwards, but a few minutes later Arda Turan wrapped things up with a third goal, coolly steering the ball in to the net after his header from Juanfran’s cross came back to him off the crossbar. Atleti were through to their first final in 40 years, and for the first time in the history of the competition two teams from the same city will be facing each other for the title.
