Atletico madrid fan in London

Atlético fan in London (MARCA)

Here’s a new concept for you guys. After last week’s huge activity before, during and after the UEFA Champions League semifinal both here on the website and on Twitter, we’ve decided to open a post especially for this big game.

Use the comments for your thoughts, updates and (hopefully) celebrations.

Chelsea XI:
Schwarzer; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole; Azpilicueta, Ramires, Luiz, Hazard; Willian and Torres.

Chelsea subs: Hilario; Kalas, Van Ginkel, Oscar, Schürrle, Eto’o, Ba.

Atlético XI:
Courtois; Juanfran, Miranda, Godín, Filipe; Koke, Tiago, Mario, Arda; Adrián and Diego Costa.

Atlético subs: Aranzubia; Alderweireld, Raúl García, Rodríguez, Diego, Sosa, Villa

Aupa Atleti!

  • Derek Maaijen

    Let’s do this. ATLEEEETI

  • Brad

    This is brilliant! We should have one for every match!

  • Derek Maaijen

    Thanks Brad, let’s see if it’s a success.

    Koke hit the crossbar earlier, so close!

  • Brad

    It looks like Mou has Chelsea still playing a somewhat defensive game, but it’s not quite parking the bus like last week

  • Brad

    and apparently penalties are no longer a thing…at least when Costa gets taken down

  • Derek Maaijen

    Man, Hazard is one bad mofugger, we can’t contain him! This game so much more exciting than last week’s.

  • Ali

    That was wonderfull effort from david luiz!!

  • Brad

    It’s always a good thing when your opponent gets a yellow for complaining

  • Brad


  • Derek Maaijen

    Crap, Torres scores 1-0!

    I think Courtois saves that if it doesn’t take a deflection

  • Brad

    then again, we need to score today anyhow

  • Brad

    there we go. 1-1 and we take the momentum into the half!

  • Brad

    Anyone else have the site crash just before the half?

  • Brad

    and terrible reffing…

  • Derek Maaijen

    We’re 2-1 up!!!

  • Brad

    And from the spot, Diego Costa!!!!!

  • Brad

    3-1! ARDA

  • Brad

    Arda off, Cebolla on

  • Kris

    At my job screaming!!!!!!!

  • Will

    @KRIS, at my job too! I hate my job!!!


  • starvs


    Serious question, what is my best change/method to try and get a ticket for this final? What are the chances of being able to scalp one?

  • Kim

  • jeronamo

    I couldn’t get on here during the game idk why… But man what a feeling… I’m sooooo excited AUPA ATLETI.

  • starvs

    unbeaten all season, ridiculous.

  • Ash

    This is probably the 2nd happiest day of a modern Atletico fans, because we will strive for the Final win in Lisbon!

  • Silchas

    kind of a dream come true:
    adrian scores and costa scores after a penalty, we win such an important game without gabi and every player ist available for the final. so all in all a perfect night imho.

  • jeronamo

    Btw Derek i love this concept.. i’ll be here every match i can to voice my support and opinion

  • Ahmad Hossainy

    I’m speechless .. maybe tomorrow I will know what I say, but now I will just say: Atleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeti

  • Brad

    To quote whoever said it on the match preview yesterday “The Manzanares ends in Lisbon”! Aupa Atleti!

  • Sean Dalton

    good concept
    maybe there’s a way to have a livescore application on the website? Like on the side with a minichat below it.



    I am a happy man

  • Pantic#10

    What an epic match!!
    But Tiago !?!? OMG another amazing performance by our vice-captain (today as captain)

    Legendary performance by all the team and subs.

  • EC

    Every player had a great game but i will single out Cortouis, Tiago, Felipe and Turan for special praise. what a wonderful season were having. made even sweeter be ending Chelsea + Mourinho.

    hopefully we play Gabi and Tiago in CM in the final every other position will pick itself hopefully with no injuries and aim sure Cholo will make the right choice as to who will partner Costa out of Adrian, Villa and Garcia.

  • jose maria

    vamos a la Gran Final !!!!
    Felicidades a todos los jugadores y equipo técnico.

    Hoy el At . Madrid me ha hecho feliz!!!!!!!!!!!!
