90+1 The referee adds five minutes of stoppage time.
90 David Luiz's ensuing, dipping free-kick goes over the crossbar.
89 Atletico defender Miranda is booked for fouling Torres on the edge of the area.
88 Another far-post header from Diego Costa! but it's blocked by his challenger.
86 The third substitution for Atletico. David Villa replaces Raul Garcia.
84 A looping header from Raul Garcia at the far post goes over the bar.
83 Chelsea midfielder Willian is trying to keep the ball under his control as much as he can to waste some time in the dying minutes.
82 Diego Costa attempts an overhead kick from the edge of the area, but he mis-hits it.
80 Atletico make their second substitution, Jose Sosa replaces Mario Suarez.
79 Atletico go close, finally! Turan's far-post header narrowly misses the target.
78 Raul Garcia is found by a deep cross but his poorly-directed header goes wide. There are signs Atletico may threaten Chelsea's goal more often.
76 Mark Schwarzer dives to his right to block a free-kick.
76 Chelsea will hope to keep their clean sheet in the final 15 minutes as Atletico increase their pressure.
75 Another argument erupts between the players. Chelsea's Nigerian forward Mikel and Atletico's Gabi will miss the second leg after receiving a yellow card each.
74 Atletico were about to create a chance! A slip by Chelsea's John Obi Mikel gives Atletico some space but the eventual shot is, as usual, blocked by the defence.
72 Chelsea forced to make another unscripted substitution. German forward Andre Schurrle replaces the injured Terry.
##
71 Chelsea defender John Terry is receiving treatment after he falls under the challenge of Diego Costa.

64 Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard will miss the second leg after being booked for a challenge on Turan.
63 Chelsea's defenders win the majority of aerial challenges with Atletico's forwards.

57 A very dour game with almost no clear-cut chances.
55 Schwarzer palms away a long ball but it falls into the path of Diego, who cuts inside his marker but his subsequent low shot is easily collected by the Australian keeper.
53 Atletico will probably need the spark of Arda Turan, who is on the bench, to unlock a steadfast Chelsea defence.
50 Fernando Torres hardly finds any assistance from Chelsea's midfielders when they try to launch a counter attack. It seems Mourinho's instructions not to take any risks are very strict.

44 All Atletico crosses are easily cleared by the Chelsea backline.
41 Diego Costa chests the ball inside the area following a right-wing cross but his shot is blocked by the defence.

36 Mark Schwarzer is yet to be tested.
34 Due to the tight Chelsea defence, Atletico try their luck from distance but Mario Suarez's effort narrowly misses the target.
33 Chelsea's four-man backline is very comfortable, thanks to the tireless work of David Luiz, Frank Lampard and Willian.
30 The injury of Chelsea keeper Petr Cech is the only highlight of the second quarter of an hour. Chelsea had a shy attempt to score through a corner.
27 A rare chance for Chelsea on the break following a slip by Gabi but Ramires' cross-shot goes wide.
26 David Luiz is Chelsea's most energetic midfielder so far. He repeatedly steals possession from Atletico's forwards.
24 Raul Garcia ghosts behind the defence but he is flagged for offside. Atletico are still looking to carve out any openings.
20 Chelsea create the first chance of the game! a mis-timed jump by goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois allows Gary Cahill to send a free header that narrowly misses the target following a corner.
19 Diego Costa rises above the defence following a cross but his header goes poorly wide.
17 It seems Cech has suffered a serious elbow injury. He is replaced, making way for 41-year-old keeper Mark Schwarzer.
##
15 Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is receiving treatment after tipping over a corner.
15 Atletico have the lion's share of possession but they are yet to find a way through the massed ranks of Chelsea.
12 No threats, no chances, no half-chances. The first 12 minutes are dull.
10 A low shot by Diego Costa is blocked by Terry but Ashley Cole is awarded a free kick.
9 It seems Chelsea do not have any intention of even trying some counter attacks.
7 Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is isolated upfront, with attacking midfielders Willian and Ramires drifting very deep when Atletico have possession.
5 The hosts are calmly moving the ball around, as Chelsea defend in numbers.
3 Chelsea's defence is expected to be given a torrid time by Atletico's in-form striker Diego Costa.
