Overreaction Theatre is feeling remarkably fresh this morning after a monster night's sleep that started at about 19:46 last night.
So how did the Atletico Madrid v Chelsea clash go then? Let us just catch up on the highlights before getting back to you.

Strange....no video highlights eh? I'll just have to read the minute-by-minute report instead.

Hmmm...although I do see Chelsea's tactical plan was leaked out.
Parking the bus eh Jose? Didn't you complain when Tottenham did that once? And what did you say about West Ham earlier in the season?
I believe Chelsea tactics were once described somewhere as " 19th century football". As with Hammers, they're justified.

But Chelsea are usually so entertaining....
Chelsea's CL semi-final scores under Mourinho: 0-0, 0-1, 1-0, 0-1, 0-0. 1 goal scored in 480 minutes (inc extra time).

No doubt former Scotland manager Craig Levein enjoyed the game though and was taking notes.
So in conclusion it wasn't great was it?

Full time, and it's 0-0. Congratulations to anyone who spent their night watching paint dry instead. Great call. — Paddy Power (@paddypower) April 22, 2014
100% Stinker. When TV signals from that match arrive at a black hole in space, it will be the black hole that'll get sucked into the void.

Atletico v Chelsea. Like watching a medieval siege where attackers outside the city walls try to starve the population to death

Diego Costa joins Edinson Cavani in the race to succeed Zlatan in the "we've seen him once, he didn't do much, so he's over-rated" stakes. — Rory Smith (@RorySmithTimes) April 22, 2014
Watching that BBC2 documentary about the slow and boring removal of the sludge blocking sewers. No, hold on, I'm watching the Chelsea match.

At least the TV coverage was good right?
Not sure what is worse, ITV's coverage of this game or the game itself. — James Dickens (@JamesN11) April 22, 2014
No snickering at the back.
"He's done brilliant to pull off the defender and look at Gary Cahill's desire."

But hey, at least boring nights allow people to work on new novelty Twitter accounts. We give you Jonjo Selfie.
