Remember how boring yesterday's game was? How dire Bayern Munich were and how incisive Real Madrid were? Well, expect even more boredom today. The only this Chelsea vs. Atletico Madrid match isn't a snoozefest is if Atleti somehow score first and Chelsea have to open up in order to score two goals. Otherwise, prepare for 120 minutes of two teams playing for penalties. Doesn't that sound like fun?
Jose Mourinho is sending out this squad for the match:
Hazard, Terry start. Chelsea XI: Schwarzer, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole, Ramires, David Luiz, Azpilicueta, Hazard, Willian, Torres— ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) April 30, 2014
And Diego Simeone has named this team:
Atletico Madrid XI to play Chelsea: Courtois; Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe Luis; Mario Suarez, Tiago; Adrian, Koke, Arda; Diego Costa— ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) April 30, 2014
There's really no other football of note on this afternoon, so this is what you're stuck with. I'd say it can't possibly be less interesting than the last time these two played, but I think we all know that I'd be lying. So, enjoy or whatever. Definitely comment though, because interesting discussion is the only way we're all going to survive this.
