How to watch Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea live online

So you want to watch the big Champions League match tonight? Well, of course you do – particularly if you're a Chelsea fan – and the good news is you can actually view the semi-final live online courtesy of ITV.

Simply point your browser here, sit back, and enjoy the first leg (or indeed prepare for nail-biting and swearing aplenty – stress balls and/or large alcoholic beverages at the ready). Coverage starts at 19:30 GMT tonight, 15 minutes before kick-off at 19:45.

If you prefer your coverage on the HDTV in the living room, the match in Madrid is also being shown on live on ITV, with Adrian Chiles, Roy Keane and Lee Dixon presenting.

Chelsea will, of course, be looking to put the spectre of their defeat to Sunderland at the weekend firmly behind them, a game in which they lost 2-1 at Stamford Bridge. The Blues defence will definitely need to be tighter when facing Atletico Madrid this evening, that much is certain...

They'll also have to cope with the raucous home fans inside the Vicente Calderón stadium, who make life difficult for any visiting team – particularly when it comes to a match of this importance.

At any rate, bookmark the match now and be back in just under nine hours' time to see how the game unfurls.
