Apr 11, 2014 Posted Under: News

We will play Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League, with the first leg to be played away from home.

The first leg will be played on Tuesday 22 April at the Vicente Calderon, with the return leg at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday 30 April.  

The draw was made at UEFA headquarters in Switzerland on Friday morning UK time and sees us paired with the side currently leading their domestic league. We last met Atletico in the Super Cup in 2012 when the Spanish side ran out 4-1 winners.

Our only meeting in the Champions League came in the 2009/10 group stage when we won 4-0 at the Bridge, with the return fixture in Madrid ending in a 2-2 draw. Atletico reached this stage after defeating Barcelona 2-1 on aggregate in the quarter-finals.

Real Madrid face Bayern Munich in the other semi-final.

The full draw is:

Real Madrid v Bayern Munich
