Atletico Madrid's Simao to blank Chelsea pals

Atletico Madrid ace Simao Sabrosa will blank his friends at Chelsea for tonight's Champions League clash.

Simao will snub Portuguese pals Ricardo Carvalho, Deco and Jose Bosingwa tonight.

And the Atletico Madrid winger, 29, believes his side will shrug off their indifferent form.

He said: "I have plenty of friends in the Chelsea squad but at Stamford Bridge it will be as though I know nobody. This match is so important and to get through we need a minimum of four points in the two games against them.

"The key will be for us to contain Deco, Frank Lampard and Michael Ballack so they can't move the ball."
