Football fans can watch the Chelsea FC vs. Atletico Madrid match live online as two of the world’s best defensive teams face off in the UEFA Champions League semi-final.
The match will take place Tuesday at 8:45 pm local time from Madrid.
Both teams come into the game evenly matched, and Atletico coach Diego Simeone said the difference will likely come down to the little details.
“This is a semi-final and as such it will be a very tight match,” he said. “It is a game that will be decided by very small details. Teamwork will be all-important in helping to bring out the individual qualities that can decide games. Whoever can do that best will be closer to winning the first leg. I am still thinking about tactics; I want to see how we are in training.”
Fans who watch the Chelsea FC vs. Atletico Madrid football match live online will see two squads coming off very different weekends. While Atletico defeated Elche 2-0 on Friday and holds a four-point lead atop the La Liga standings, Chelsea was dealt a crushing blow to its Premier League title hopes. The Blues lost to Sunderland AFC 2-1, falling five points behind Liverpool FC.
It was the first league loss for coach Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge, ending a streak of 77 games without a loss.
But Mourinho said he is now turning his attention toward the UEFA semifinal and a difficult draw in Atletico.
“I am not here to talk to you about Atlético’s qualities; I have already done that with my players,” he told reporters this week. “No team arrives in a UEFA Champions League semi-final without being a very good team and they are no exceptions. To be here they have to be a very good team. We respect them, have studied and analyzed them.
“I have watched them playing many times. When we got them in the draw, I watched them with keener eyes. I have studied them a lot and have tried to give an idea of what Atlético are about to my players. Any team that is fighting for the championship and in the UEFA Champions League must be an important team.”
