Atletico to meet Real Madrid in Champions League final
Atletico Madrid beat Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final to advance to the final by the same score on aggregate.
Atletico will now face rivals Real Madrid in the final in Lisbon on Saturday, May 24 in the first European final to be contested by two clubs from the same city.
After a goalless first leg in Madrid last week, former Atletico striker Fernando Torres opened the scoring in the tie for Chelsea in the 36th minute.
However, Adrian Lopez equalised for Atletico just before the interval before a Diego Costa penalty and an Arda Turan effort clinched an ultimately convincing victory.
