Chelsea midfielder Ramires has welcomed their Champions League semifinal draw against Atletico Madrid.
Ramires believes there is little to choose between the teams ahead of the semifinals and acknowledged both will enter the final four buoyed by their recent success.
"This is the time when everyone respects each other and nobody wants to choose an opponent," he told Globo Esporte.
"What makes our matches against Atletico Madrid special is that both teams are very confident at the moment after what happened in the quarter-finals.
"Atletico Madrid eliminated Barcelona, who are always favourites in the competition, while few people believed we would reverse the deficit against PSG. I think it will be two tightly-contested matches between two teams full of passion."
