Five minutes added.
Dembele can only volley the ball at an awkward height off target after Llorente's surging run and cross had caused a rare moment of concern for the hosts.
Hudson-Odoi looks to be in on the left of the area, but he complicates the situation and eventually sees his shot blocked.
Chelsea are all-but there. They've been enjoying a bit of keep-ball. Atletico need to get it forward but they know their fate now.
- OffTimo WernerChelsea
- OnCallum Hudson-OdoiChelsea
CHELSEA CHANGE: Hudson-Odoi on.
It wasn't exactly a hard elbow, but it was so needless and daft.
ATLETICO ARE DOWN TO 10 MEN! Savic is shown a straight red card for elbowing Rudiger off the ball.
CLOSE! Joao Felix spins into a yard space just inside the area and sees his deflected shot fly just past the far post.

ATLETICO CHANGE: Lemar on for Trippier.
Play was briefly halted while Zouma received treatment for a knock. He's back up and ready to return now.
UPDATED STAT: Suarez has failed to net in all six of his Champions League appearances for Atletico this season and has not scored in any of his last 25 away appearances in the competition.
Werner does his best road-runner impression as he charges down the left and gives Gimenez a torrid time before flashing wide of the near upright.
STAT: Atletico Madrid have won just two of their past 10 away Champions League knockout matches (drawn two, lost six).
- Yellow cardJosé María GiménezAtlético Madrid
Gimenez booked for diving into a tackle on Havertz.
- OffLuis SuárezAtlético Madrid

KICK OFF! Chelsea get us back underway. They are 45 minutes from the last eight.

HT: Chelsea 1-0 Atletico Madrid. It's 2-0 on agg.
Kovacic side foots wide from 20 yards out after neat build up from Havertz, James and Kante.
Werner can't convert James's cross at the near post. Havertz tries to pick up the pieces but tumbles to the deck under pressure. The referee isn't interested and points for a corner that comes to nothing.
Atletico provide a warning that this tie isn't over. Llorente charges into space on the right flank and fires in a cross that screams out for someone to convert, but no Atleti shirt is close enough to drag them level.
Chelsea come again but Havertz just fails to connect with a delightful cross from James.
- GoalHakim ZiyechChelsea
GOAL! Ziyech finishes off Werner's low ball from the left after Havertz had led a Chelsea counter attack at speed.
VIDEO: Atletico's penalty shout.
- Yellow cardRenan LodiAtlético Madrid
Lodi is booked for a late lunge on James. He'll miss the next CL game if Atletico turns this tie around....
- Yellow cardKai HavertzChelsea
Suarez peels to the right of the area to try and catch Chelsea out from Trippier's clever free-kick in-behind. However, he can't take it down over his shoulder and the ball bounces out of play.
PENALTY SHOUT! Carrasco chases Suarez's pass. Azpilicueta looks to tidy up but his back pass is weak and he appears to fell the Atletico man. No penalty though.There was certainly contact. Chelsea may have got away with it there.
Suarez looks to take on Rudiger on the right. He tries to jink into the area, but is bundled over the by the Chelsea defender. Suarez appeals but the referee isn't interested. It was a bit rash though.
STAT: Tuchel has only lost three of the 16 home games he has overseen as a manager in the Champions League (won 11, drew two).
The Blues win the ball back deep in Atletico territory again. However, James has a rush of blood and rifles a long-range strike over the top.
Joao Felix drives at the heart of the Chelsea defence. He slaloms past one and tip toes into the box, but Kante's last-ditch recovery pokes the ball to safety before the forward can get his shot away.
It's been a very good spell for Chelsea. Atletico have been put under some sustained pressure but the final ball hasn't quite been right to unlock the visiting rearguard yet.
SHOT-SHY SUAREZ: Suarez has failed to net in all five of his Champions League appearances for Altetico this season and has not scored in any of his last 24 away appearances in the competition, since September 2015 with Barcelona at Roma.
Super research here.
Kante seizes upon a loose ball deep in Atleti territory. He shimmies past one but can't manufacture space for the shot. He tries to drive into the right side of the box but is on the wrong end of an unlucky ricochet and Atletico win a goal kick.
DID YOU KNOW? Atletico Madrid have a 50 per cent progression rate in the European Cup/Champions League after losing the first leg of knockout ties, progressing from four of eight previous ties.
Lodi exchanges a slick one-two with Carrasco on the left but sees his first-time, looping cross-shot plucked out of the air by Mendy.
Atleti are showing some early intent. A high, diagonal ball is touched back for Llorente, but his shot from the edge of the box is blocked a host of Chelsea bodies.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Atletico Madrid get this second leg up and running. Chelsea lead 1-0 on aggregate.
The warm up is done. Is this going to be Chelsea's night or will Atleti find their best form when it matters most?
Will Joao Felix deliver for Atletico tonight? The 21-year-old is the Spanish side's top scorer in the competition with three to his name so far.

FEATURE: Why Chelsea can ‘do an Atletico Madrid’ all the way to the final in Istanbul.
Antonio Rudiger on Luis Suarez and Joao Felix: “He is a world-class player and he has shown that at every club he has been at. He has a lot of fight in him. He’s a tough opponent. The attack is not only Luis Suarez, it’s Joao Felix who is a great talent and a good young prospect. He is a different type of player but a player I love to watch because of his technique. He has something special.”
Diego Simeone: “Chelsea don't have a weakness. The only thing is they don't know what can happen from a negative point of view - they have not had a negative result yet. We don't know how they will approach it, but I know what we want, which is to win."
Thomas Tuchel: "Atletico is one of the teams to give away the fewest chances in the whole of Europe so it's very important to be patient and keep this level going.”
Atletico make two changes from their own goalless draw with Getafe. Renan Lodi and Joao Felix start.
Chelsea make five changes from the side that drew with Leeds at the weekend. Kurt Zouma, Reece James, Marcos Alonso, Mateo Kovacic and Timo Werner all start with Jorginho and Mason Mount both out suspended.
