Never before in the history of the Champions League had two teams from the same city contested the final. Until this year.
Atletico Madrid overturned a one goal deficit after old chum Fernando Torres opened the scoring for Chelsea, scoring three unanswered to setup the May 24 final against friendly rivals Real Madrid. Lisbon, Portugal will host this year’s final, and it should be a doozy.
Quite the year it’s been for Atletico, which could win both La Liga (they are currently first in Spain) and the Champions League. Their appearance in the final will be the first since 1974.
