Chelsea draw Atletico Madrid for the 2014 Champions League semifinal

Dominique Charriau

The Blues got the draw most of us wanted

The draw for the 2014 UEFA Champions League semifinal has now been held, and we know who we'll have to defeat in order to continue our quest to win European silverware three seasons in a row. We'll have to defeat Atletico Madrid over two legs in order to advance to the final, where the winner will meet the winner of the Real Madrid/Bayern Munich tie.

This will likely wind up being a somewhat controversial fixture, as UEFA began the show by adding their two cents to the talk about clauses in Thibaut Courtois' contract. I'd guess that this issue is far from over.

The first leg of this contest was drawn to be held in Madrid, on Tuesday, April 22. The return leg at Stamford Bridge will take place on Wednesday, April 30. With Liverpool at Anfield falling in between the two matches, this is probably the best result we could have hoped for from a scheduling perspective.
