Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7:45pm BST. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Chelsea kept alive their chances of doing the double this season after beating table toppers Liverpool, 2-0, in the Premier League at Anfield last Sunday. Goals from Demba Ba and Willian handed Brendan Rodgers' side their first league defeat of 2014, thus ending their winning run of 11 league matches.

The west London club reduced their gap on the league leaders to two points and have now garnered 78 points from 36 matches.

Jose Mourinho's side held their nerve against Atletico in the first leg as both sides played out a goalless draw at the Vicente Calderon on 22 April. The Portuguese tactician will be hoping to guide Chelsea to their third straight final in a European competition.

Chelsea won the Champions League by beating Bayern Munich in 2012 and then lifted the Europa League last year. They face some heavy competition against Spain's best club this campaign but then the Blues' confidence will certainly have hit a peak, given that they beat England's most in form top-flight club at this moment.

Atletico maintained their surge towards their first La Liga crown in nearly 18 years by beating Valencia, 1-0, at the Mestalla Stadium last weekend. The away side secured a hard-fought three points courtesy of Raul Garcia's goal on the cusp of half time.

The Spanish capital outfit are currently on top of the league table with 88 points from 35 matches and need six points from their remaining three fixtures to be crowned champions of Spain.

They have never won the Champions League in the history of the competition but have won Europe's secondary club competition, the Europa League in 2010 and 2012. Atletico have managed to reach the final of this competition only once in 1974 when they were beaten by Bayern Munich.

Diego Simeone will be keen to become the second Los Rojiblancos' manager to guide them to the final, hoping to be the first to lift the trophy in the aftermath of the showdown on 24 May.

Nine-time Champions, Real Madrid await the winner of this competition at Estadio da Luz in Lisbon. Carlo Ancelotti's side dismantled defending champions Bayern Munich, 4-0, (5-0 on aggregate) in the second leg at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.

Having not conceded a goal at Vicente Calderon, Atletico stand a slightly better chance of progressing if they score the all-important away goal at Stamford Bridge. A scoring draw will certainly be enough for the La Liga outfit to set up another Madrid derby this season.

From the Chelsea camp, the Brazilian duo of Willian and David Luiz are at risk of missing the final should they be booked while Atletico have Emiliano Insua, Koke and Juanfran walking the disciplinary tightrope.

What Managers Say

Jose Mourinho: "They are a good side. They are not a counterattacking side. They defend well. They score goals. They win matches! They are in the semi-finals of the Champions League and need two victories to be Spanish champions. I have respect for what they are doing because to be in a Champions League semi-final is not for every club, and to have the possibility of winning the league against Barcelona and Real Madrid is something that deserves my respect."

Diego Simeone: "The confidence is always there, especially in a semi-final of the Champions League. That's already a massive statement. My players are excited and keen. We know we'll have to work hard tomorrow in a very difficult game, and we'll have to put in an enormous effort to get a positive result. I just want us to keep moving forward, not on what we've achieved. In the end the best team will win. With our hard work and our enthusiasm, we can do well and maybe get a positive result."
