Champions League: Chelsea v Atletico

Chelsea host Atletico Madrid at Stamford bridge on Wednesday in their crucial Champions League semi-final second leg .

Coach Jose Mourinho received a welcome boost before the game at Stamford Bridge as John Terry has been declared fit to play after recovering from an ankle injury.

Eden Hazard is also available again but injured goalkeeper Petr Cech will be absent as will Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel who are both suspended.

Standing in the way of Chelsea and a second final appearance in three years are Atletico Madrid – who are two league wins away from their first La Liga title in 19 years.

Apart from captain Javi Fernandez, who is suspended, Atletico manager Diego Simeone has a fully fit squad to choose from as they look to continue their dream season and reach the final of Europe’s top club competition for the first time since 1974.
