MADRID (AP) Jose Mourinho finds himself in the Champions League semifinals once again, although Atletico Madrid hopes to make sure the Portuguese manager fails to progress from this stage for the fourth season in a row.
Mourinho's Chelsea plays at Atletico's Vicente Calderon Stadium on Tuesday with its domestic title hopes floundering following a 2-1 loss to last-place Sunderland on Saturday. Atletico, meanwhile, secured an eighth straight victory to move within three wins of its first league title since 1996.
Mourinho made it as far as the semifinals twice during his previous spell with the Blues before guiding Inter Milan to the title in 2010. Since then, he has three straight visits to the semifinals with Real Madrid, losing each time.
