Diego Simeone has turned Atletico Madrid into one of the best competing sides in the Champions League although they have failed to master the act of winning at the finals.

They started this season’s competition with a goalless draw against AS Roma and while that result does not seem bad, they have to play catch up now and cannot afford to lose further ground to Chelsea in this fixture.

They have managed 4 wins and 3 draws from their opening 7 games of the season as they seem to lack the cutting edge they need in attack.

Their defence have been impressive though and they have kept 4 clean sheets so far.

Facing Chelsea will be their toughest test this season and they will be hoping to pass with flying colours.

Atletico Madrid have won two, drawn two, and lost one of their five previous meetings with Chelsea.

Chelsea may have started their season poorly, but they look unstoppable now.

They opened their Champions League campaign with a 6-0 hammering of Qarabag with Alvaro Morata now settling well into the club’s style of playing and scoring the goals, it can only get better for the Premier League champions.

The Blues have kept four clean sheets in their last 6 games and that will be a morale booster as they head into this game against an Atletico Madrid attack struggling to break down opponents.
