Atletico Madrid Preview – Can Atletico raise their game?

Having picked up just one point from their recent back-to-back home and away fixtures against Levante, Atletico Madrid will need to raise their game in this 1st leg Champions League clash against Chelsea in order to take a lead to London for the return leg.

Atletico Madrid suffered a surprising 2-0 defeat at home to Levante on the weekend in La Liga but the hosts will be looking to put them behind them here as they look to extend their unbeaten run in this competition to six matches.

Four of Atletico Madrid’s last five Champions League ties have resulted in low-scoring games and along with a 13-match unbeaten run at their Estadio Wando Metropolitana, 10 of Atletico’s 13 matches have been under 2.5 goals as the hosts have also kept eight clean sheets in this period too.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Chelsea Preview – Can Chelsea continue revival?

German manager, Thomas Tuchel, has certainly helped turn around Chelsea’s fortunes in recent times as the visitors bring an impressive eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions into this clash, winning six of these eight.

Chelsea have also performed well on the Champions League stage too as they’re unbeaten in their last six ties overall while away from home, Chelsea have won their last three away ties on the trot with wins at Krasnodar, Rennes and Sevilla.

However, these two teams seem evenly matched and the last meeting ended in a 1-1 draw back in December 2017, so this could be another tight encounter in Madrid on Tuesday night.
