After a goalless draw in the first leg, Chelsea and Atletico head to Stamford Bridge evenly footed to contend for a spot in the May 24th Final.
With the absence of injured goalkeeper Peter Cech Australian veteran Mark Schwarzer will be filling in between the sticks. His presence, along with tough Chelsea defence, saw the Blues hold EPL title favourites Liverpool scoreless on Monday for the first time in 28 games.
For Atletico to play their signature counter-attacking style their opponent needs to actually attack and if recent Mourinho tactical history tells us anything it is that they will be ‘parking the bus’.
If Chelsea are to prevail Schwarzer will be the oldest (41) player to ever compete in a Champion’s League Final.
