After a 0-0 draw against Chelsea in the semifinal first leg Tuesday, a victory or a score draw in London would assure Atletico of a place in their first European Cup final for 40 years.Atletico have been a model of consistency this season under coach Diego Simeone's "match-by-match" strategy, and their progress in three competitions, having also reached the King's Cup semifinals, is remarkable considering their limited squad. Atletico lead the way in La Liga with 85 points, four more than Barcelona and six ahead of Real Madrid, who do have a game in hand.However, a slipup against Valencia would be costly especially as they still have to face Barcelona away on the final day of the season.
