Madrid: Atletico Madrid and Chelsea will have it all to play for when they meet in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final in London next Wednesday after a 0-0 draw in the first leg at the Vicente Calderon on Tuesday. Chances were far and few between as Chelsea set up to stifle the hosts with two late headers from Raul Garcia the closest Atletico came to breaking the deadlock.

The English side did suffer two significant injuries, however, as both goalkeeper Petr Cech and captain John Terry were forced off ruling them out of the second leg. Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel will also be missing for Chelsea, along with Atletico captain Gabi at Stamford Bridge as they all received yellow cards that means they are suspended for the second leg.

"Petr Cech's season is over, don't ask me technically but his season is over. For John we'll have to make the final for him to play again."
