The tepid 0-0 draw in the Vicente Calderon resembled a phony war but Chelsea and Atletico Madrid will surely up the ante at Stamford Bridge Wednesday when a place in the Champions League final is on the line.Atletico, closing in on a first Spanish league title since 1996, ran out of ideas against a resolute Chelsea rearguard in which John Terry and Gary Cahill spent most of the evening heading away hopeful crosses into the area.Mourinho is a past master at knocking teams off clouds, and while Simeone will demand more imagination from his side at Stamford Bridge where an away goal could prove vital, Mourinho may elect to adopt the tactics that so stifled Atletico and Liverpool in the space of a few days.
