Johannesburg, May 1: Atletico Madrid has defeated Premier League stars Chelsea 3-1 in their Champions League semi-final second leg clash on Wednesday at the Stamford Bridge to set up an all-Spanish final against city rivals Real Madrid.
Atletico has been awarded with a 3-1 aggregate victory after last week’s goalless draw in Madrid, which put them into the final of Europe’s elite competition for the first time since 1974.
According to Sport24, goals from Adrian Lopez in the 44th minute, a penalty from Diego Costa and Arda Turan pushed Atletico towards a sure-fire victory despite the hosts taking the lead after 36 minutes when former Atletico favourite Fernando Torres scored with a deflected shot.
The La Liga leaders will now meet their neighbours in the first European final to feature two clubs from the same city in Lisbon on May 24, the report added. (ANI)
