And that's it. It's Chelsea 1-3 Atletico Madrid. A simply stunning result for the visitors, who were well worth the victory, well and truly outplaying their hosts. It's an all-Madrid final in 2014, and Mourinho will have to look to the future to continue his renovations at Stamford Bridge. Thanks for following.
90+4'
Almost a consolation for Chelsea, but a fine save from Courtois keeps them down to one goal before Terry blazes over.
90+1'
Five minutes of stoppage time are announced as Luiz attempts to scamper away from his markers in the area. In the end, Atletico get the tackle in and emerge with the ball. The home fans would probably prefer to simply be put out of their misery.
90'
Schurrle goes down under a nothing challenge in the area and the referee is not fooled. He takes a second to decide whether or not to give him a booking for his troubles, but in the end opts to simply carry on.
89'
Perhaps the ultimate praise for Atletico is that they haven't needed to timewaste or frustrate at all. They're knocking it around with ease.
86'
Chelsea buzzing around futilely - we knew Atletico were good, but I don't think anyone was 100% confident that they could turn up away and tonk a big European side. What utter dread the prospect of a European final against your greatest - and more illustrious - rivals must bring.
84'
Almost a chance for Eto'o after Atletico fail to deal with Ivanovic's long throw, but after doing well to control and turn, he can't get his shot away.
Atlético de Madrid Substitution
81'
 
Atletico are still looking the likeliest to score here. Arda Turan, who put the final nail in Chelsea's coffin, is off. Cristian Rodriguez replaces him.
80'
 
Willian has gone off for Chelsea, with Schurrle coming on to replace him. Well, he did score a hat-trick recently...
79'
If this were a final, we would be well into the 'sentimental substitution' window right now. Both teams are well aware of who's going through here.
Chelsea Substitution
Atlético de Madrid Substitution
76'
Atletico want four. Filipe Luis once again darts into the area with embarrassing ease but he can't lift the ball over the advancing Schwarzer. Chelsea know they're done here.
73'
There's been a lot of debate about style vs. substance and playing football in the right way recently, but Chelsea have simply been well and truly outplayed on their own turf here. They have lost to a better side. Atletico weren't scared to attack, and they've blown the doors off Mourinho's bus.
72'
 
GOAL! It's surely all over for Chelsea now. Arda Turan has it, as Juanfran replicates his involvement in the first goal to get to the back post and hook it back into the area. The Turkish international meets it with a mighty header which cannons off the bar, but back into his path to simply prod home. Stamford Bridge is stunned, and Atletico are surely in the final now.
Atlético de Madrid Goal

Right Footed - Bottom Right

67'
 
Not quite throwing on all his attackers, because Mourinho has taken Torres off to make room for Ba.
Chelsea Substitution

66'
 
First though, a change for Atletico. Adrian Lopez, the earlier goalscorer, off. Raul Garcia on.
65'
Demba Ba is warming up. The throw-on-all-your-attackers-any-old-how plan worked against Paris Saint-Germain, but will it work here?
Atlético de Madrid Yellow card

64'
Chelsea hit the post! Luiz gets on the end of it but it crashed off the post before hitting Courtois and bouncing over. That could've got the hosts right back in it, but it's still 2-1 to the visitors.
63'
Well, here's one opportunity - Hazard is shoved over by Lopez and now it's a good chance for the hosts from the free-kick.
63'
Schwarzer claims easily. Chelsea and Mourinho have been very good at playing on the defensive. But what can they do in this situation?
62'
Costa comes forward and looks for another, but his blocked effort goes out for a corner. Chelsea need to sort themselves out quickly if they are to have any hope of progressing here.
61'
 
GOAL! He can't! Costa blasts it into the roof of the net with Schwarzer going in completely the wrong direction. It's 2-1 to Atletico, and Chelsea are in severe trouble now. They need two goals to fight back now, and it looks like we could be facing a Madrid derby in the final.

Right Footed - Top Left

60'
 
Costa adjusts and adjusts the ball, and gets a yellow card for doing so. Schwarzer holds his arms out, indignant. Can the oldest ever Champions League knockout player keep him out?
59'
Penalty to Atletico Madrid! This could be curtains for Chelsea! Costa was hacked down clumsily by Eto'o, the substitute, as both chased a loose ball and the referee points to the spot after some hesitation.
57'
Atletico still aren't afraid to commit numbers forward, and a dangerous-looking cross has to be put behind for a corner by Azpilicueta, who has returned to left-back duty.
54'
 
Change for Chelsea - unsurprisingly an attacking one. Samuel Eto'o on, Ashley Cole off.
Chelsea Substitution
53'
A free-kick for Chelsea as Turan brings down Ramires, but Thibaut Courtois saves excellently from Terry, getting down low to parry it and allowing his defence to clear.
51'
Atletico are still showing patience in their attacking play, as they can afford to now. Another goal would make this very difficult for Chelsea, who are still not exactly throwing the kitchen sink at the visitors.
49'
Chelsea look a little bit directionless here. They haven't quite settled down even now.
47'
As in the first half, another early scare for Chelsea. More rotten defending sees a cross which should be cleared find Arda Turan at the back post with plenty of time but little space, and his effort from a tight angle fails to beat Schwarzer.
46'
We are back underway here at Stamford Bridge. Somewhat surprisingly, there are no changes.
21:43
It's a safe bet that we'll be seeing some half-time substitutions from José Mourinho - the current lineup does not seem best-designed to be chasing a goal, and with Atletico having the lead on away goals, they don't have anything extra to fear from conceding themselves.
21:34
And now it's half-time. That is the problem with defending - as some illustrious man once opined, it only takes a second to score a goal. A second of quality, or in this case, a second of collective stupidity. Atletico are now in the lead on away goals in the tie, and Chelsea will need to find another goal if they are to progress.
44'
 
GOAL! Incredible! Atleti equalise, and as it stands it's they who will go through to the final. It's shocking, rancid defending from Chelsea, too - as the visitors feel emboldened to attack in numbers, a ball to the back post finds Hazard and Ashley Cole ball-watching, and it's hooked back in - somehow missed by three Chelsea defenders - to find the unmarked Adrian to blast home. Game on.
Atlético de Madrid Goal

Right Footed - Top Left

42'
Adrian connects with a header and gets it on target, but it's too close to Schwarzer, who doesn't have to move to catch the ball with ease.
41'
Ramires gives away a cheap free-kick, and Atletico might have a decent chance to steal one back now. Schwarzer's early error aside, however, Chelsea have looked very solid at defending them.
39'
Torres did not celebrate there, as the goal was of course against his former club. Tonight, friends, we dine on narratives.
38'
Now Chelsea actually have a lead to defend, but one goal from Atletico Madrid will still sink them. We could be in for a tense second half here.
37'
 
GOAL! Chelsea take the lead in London! Fernando Torres has the goal against his former club after receiving Azpilicueta's cutback after decent work from Willian, finding the net courtesy of a huge deflection off Suarez. Huge moment.
Chelsea Goal

Right Footed - Bottom Left

35'
Chelsea's attacking play is rather primitive, but Mourinho seems to trust his forwards to scrap for loose balls forward, and they are mostly succeeding at winning them.
33'
Atletico beginning to rattle Chelsea, but while the visitors get forward in numbers through the centre, they can't always take advantage over it - here Turan's ball over the top for Costa is not good enough, and the hosts' defence deals with it too easily.
32'
Atletico take the indirect route with the free-kick, but John Terry is able to get it clear.
Chelsea Yellow card

Chelsea

Atlético

30'
 
Gary Cahill goes into the book - Costa marauds towards goal on his own, but the Englishman brings him down with a poor tackle. And now a dangerous free-kick too for the visitors...
29'
Nice play from Atletico to take advantage of a stretched Chelsea, with Filipe Luis darting into the area, but the recovering Ramires gets back in time to thwack away the danger.
28'
More probing in the Chelsea area from the visitors, but the hosts are doing a good job of denying Atletico the space to maneouvre. At the moment, they're resisting the opportunity to simply cross it, but how long will that last? Costa is not exactly averse to the aerial route.
26'
The ball is cleared and Hazard, 25 yards out, attempts to volley it goalwards, but he misconnects and absolutely skies it.
24'
More fine work from Hazard, who uses his space to fly down the right, but at speed he cannot pick out the lone figure of Torres in the box, and Atletico clear at the expense of a corner.
24'
Chelsea go the closest yet! From a set-piece, the ball is lifted into the area and Luiz meets it with an overhead kick which falls just wide of the post. That was very close.
22'
Probably the best bit of creativity from the hosts so far by Hazard, and the Belgian did not even touch the ball. He dummies Ivanovic's pass to allow Ramires to burst into the area, but his attempted centre for Torres is blocked.
21'
Atletico pass and probe once again in the Chelsea area, but good work from Luiz allows the Brazilian to break up the move, before he's bundled over by Arda Turan.
19'
Mistake by Gary Cahill! He gives the ball away cheaply and suddenly Costa is in the left channel with a sight of goal. It's a tight angle, but he can't quite get a shot in as the recovering Chelsea defence have time to block his shot as he pulls the trigger.
18'
Few players have grown into a role as nicely as Willian has this year. The Brazilian's running helps Chelsea create another attack here, with Azpilicueta attempting to find Torres in the box, but his low cross is a poor one with little chance of finding the former Atletico striker at the back post.
16'
Diego Costa charges down the byline and cuts back out to try and find space to pass or shoot, but his low effort thumps off a Chelsea defender and away. That could have been nasty for the hosts.
15'
Chelsea earn another set-piece just outside the area after the first comes to nothing, well within shooting range. Willian takes it, but fires it over the bar.
13'
A distinct lack of urgency from Chelsea's play as Atletico should cut out Branislav Ivanovic's crossfield ball, but some hard work from Hazard wins Chelsea a dangerous set-piece out wide....
11'
Mario Suarez appears to be fouled when trying to retrieve the ball deep in the Chelsea half, but the referee waves play on. The Italian officials look to be showing some leniency tonight - that was the sort of challenge that is frequently a foul in Europe but not in the Premier League.
9'
Chelsea mount another attack, but once again some tricky running from Hazard is brought to an abrupt halt by Diego Godin.
8'
I may have to revise what I said about Chelsea not looking too negative - they are looking to attack, but their style is almost comically direct. Torres appears to be being asked to impersonate Jan Koller, and so far he's not quite lived up to it.
6'
David Luiz hoiks it far and high for Fernando Torres, who falls over attempting to hold it up in the Atleti area. The visitors look the better side right now, but you'd expect Chelsea to settle down soon.
5'
Tonight's match is apparently being scripted by the Football Manager 2014 coders - the corner causes some confusion and is cleared, but when the ball comes back in Mark Schwarzer gets nowhere near it and it bounces off the crossbar and eventually away from danger. Nervy from the hosts.
4'
Atleti have the first corner of the game...
3'
Both teams seeing the ball, and although nobody has looked immediately threatening in the opening couple of minutes, neither do they look like putting ten men behind the ball, which is pleasing.
2'
Chelsea immediately put a nice move together, but Hazard runs into trouble attempting to do it solo.
1'
And we're off. Chelsea get us started.
20:46
Other interesting news: Willian, David Luiz, Koke and Juanfran are all one booking away from being suspended for the final. Could be interesting in the case of Luiz, tasked with being the main holding midfielder...
20:41
As anyone who witnessed the recent Ryan Giggs love-in - by which I mean, anyone with a pulse - will have noticed, appearances matter for managers. So it may come as some comfort to learn that Mourinho looks slightly less like a man who's just nipped out to the all-night garage for some rizla than he did at Anfield.
20:39
Just five minutes away from kick-off now. This could be a huge night for so many people, chief among them José Mourinho and Diego Simeone.
20:25
"Basically I would say that José's formation is for the better. I just hope the players play good football", says Freddie Yoshi. Well, quite. It would seem an admission that his Chelsea side is not very good to send out such a lineup at home against a less prestigious side, but the Chelsea boss has been saying as much all season. Negativity certainly helped them in their last game, although they were reliant on a horrific error from Steven Gerrard. Any slip-ups tonight?
20:18
Atletico are chanting loudly about Mourinho in the away end. This is a family website, however, so we won't be reporting what they're claiming about his mother's vocation.
20:16
There still seems to be some debate over whether Azpilicueta will indeed be on the wing or rather in behind Fernando Torres. It could be significant tactically, but ultimately the result will be the same - Chelsea are here to prevent Atletico from scoring at all costs.
20:12
Of the two scenarios, Atletico Madrid making the final would probably be the most exciting. Unfortunately, looking back at their general history over the years suggests they'd bottle it horribly and lose in the most heart-shredding manner imaginable. Which, I suppose, might still be fun.
20:09
By the way, should you wish to share your missives, vent your spleen, have your say, make your voice be heard, shout into the ether, stand up like a nail and be knocked down, or simply tweet any opinions you may have about the game thereby generating lively debate and potentially banter, you can do so by reaching me on Twitter at @Callum_TH.
20:05
You may well remember, back in the mists of time, that Ryan Bertrand started on the left-wing for Chelsea in a Champions League final, which worked out rather well for them. That was of course at the behest of noted negative, cynical, defensive tactician Roberto di Matteo.
20:02
According to the official teamsheet, Azpilicueta will be starting on the left wing, with Eden Hazard in the centre and a Luiz-Ramires pivot. That would seem to make the most sense, although these things are not to be taken as gospel.
20:00
Not the position Schwarzer probably thought he'd be in when his move to Arsenal in recent years ended up falling through. There's hope for us all yet! (There isn't.)

41 - Mark Schwarzer (41y, 206d) will tonight become the oldest player to ever start a Champions League knockout tie. Pensioner.

19:58
I think given the lineup, we can safely make the following assumption: there will be a lot of controversy, bitterness, and angry press conferences regardless of the result tonight.
19:54
Atletico, meanwhile, are fairly conservative themselves, so it looks like this could be a tight encounter. But if Chelsea are looking to keep it low-scoring, they'd better be very sure they don't allow their opponents in. A mistake or a moment of magic could settle this one, but we'll see how the teams approach the game when it kicks off.
19:52
Well, that is a bizarre lineup from Mourinho. Ashley Cole starts, yet so does Cesar Azpilicueta. And John Terry, David Luiz and Gary Cahill are all in the starting lineup. It looks like Azpilicueta and Luiz will be in midfield along with Ramires, which is very odd indeed. It looks like Chelsea are hoping to keep this one tight despite the home advantage. An Atleti goal could be disastrous.
19:52
CHELSEA: Schwarzer, Ivanovic, Cole, Cahill, Terry, Luiz, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Willian, Hazard, Torres. Subs: Hilario, Oscar, Schürrle, van Ginkel, Ba, Eto'o, Kalas. /// ATLETICO MADRID: Courtois, Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe Luis, Mario Suarez, Tiago, Adrian, Koke, Arda Turan, Diego Costa. Subs: Aranzubia, Alderweireld, Sosa, Raúl García, Cebolla, Diego, Villa.
19:44
Good evening. With Real Madrid having booked their place in the final with a stunning demolition of Bayern Munich in deepest Bavaria, two intriguing stories lie ahead. Could plucky little Atletico take on their bitter rivals in the biggest derby match of all time? Or will José Mourinho look for vengeance against his former employers? Tonight's game will decide, and after a 0-0 in the first leg, it's all to play for.
