LONDON – Atletico Madrid overpowered Chelsea 3-1 Wednesday night on goals by Adrian Lopez, Diego Costa and Arda Turan, advancing to the first one-city Champions League final against Real Madrid.
Following a 0-0 tie in Spain last week, former Atletico star Fernando Torres put Chelsea in front in the 36th minute. Adrian Lopez tied the score in the 44th, giving Atletico a critical away goal.
Costa converted a penalty kick in the 60th, and Turan scored in the 70th.
Real and Atletico will meet at Lisbon on May 24 in the first Champions League final that is a city derby.
Real is seeking a record 10th title in Europe's top club competition. Atletico lost a replay to Bayern in 1974, its only previous appearance in the European final.
