Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid Preview

Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Stamford Bridge

Date: 5th December 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Chelsea enter this game in top spot and with a great chance to qualify as group leaders.

They currently top the group by two points and hold a four points gap over Atletico.

However, they need nothing but a win if they want to avoid falling into second position as AS Roma hold a superior head to head advantage over them.

The Blues came from behind to beat Newcastle on Saturday thanks to an Eden Hazard master class.

The Belgian now has 8 goals this season and five in his last five games.

The Blues should be inspired by their win at the home of Atletico but their failure to beat Roma home and away shows that they are a vulnerable team too.

Atletico Madrid were considered favourites to win this competition when the draws were made but it hasn’t turned out exactly that smoothly for them.

They failed to win over Chelsea at home and do need a miracle from Qarabag for them to stand a chance and on top of that they need to win at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

Atletico come into this game after some improved performances.

Like their host, they came from behind to win 2-1 at the weekend – a result which means they have won five of their last six games in all competitions including the 2-0 win over AS Roma.

They have won two, lost two and drawn two of their last six meetings with Chelsea.
