Fernando Torres has been the punchline of many a joke since his big-money move to Chelsea, but there's no denying that he has scored some valuable goals in his time wearing blue.

One of those came in the opening half of Chelsea's Champions League semifinal second leg against Atletico Madrid, when he put the Blues ahead for the time being. Willian played a vital role in the build-up, splitting a pair of defenders with a slick move deep in Atletico territory on the right channel, before Cesar Azpilicueta crossed into the box. Torres got the decisive touch, with his deflected shot giving Chelsea dreams of a trip to the final vs. Real Madrid in Lisbon on May 24.

Torres, who began his career with Atletico Madrid, refused to celebrate the goal out of respect, no matter its significance (that is, until Adrian's equalizer right before halftime gave Atletico the edge on away goals, and Diego Costa and Arda Turan put the series out of reach). Watch below:
