After keeping successive clean sheets against Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal and then versus Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was criticised for his parking of the bus tactics.
Some praised him for his strategy, others admonished the Portuguese for what they regarded to be an 'anti-football' approach.
For the latter, justice may have been served at Stamford Bridge this evening, Wednesday, as that bus crashed after swerving off the road - or out of the predominantly defensive zone - against Atletico.
Chelsea attempted 16 shots on goal against Atletico's 13, the possession statistics were almost evenly balanced (52% in favour of the Spaniards) yet the result largely favoured Atletico, as the visitors ran out 3-1 winners both on the night and on aggregate.
In navigating a way past Chelsea, Atletico set up a final against their neighbours Real Madrid; the first time a Champions League final will be contested by two representatives from the same city.
