Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea 23.02.2021
Atletico Madrid and Chelsea will resume their rivalry on the European scene once again, with another feisty encounter in the offing. The Round of 16 fixtures throws up what promises to be an eventful tie over both legs, given their recent history in the UEFA Champions League.
Atletico Madrid are flying high in La Liga, although they did suffer a setback at home to Levante in their last league game. Chelsea, on the hand, are a team in transition and the German tactician is beginning to leave his imprint on the team. They are unbeaten since taking charge of the team, but Atletico Madrid are a different proposition. The Spaniards are unbeaten in 13 UEFA Champions League matches at home.
Diego Simeone’s men are favourite to edge the game going by their stellar records in Europe’s elite club competition in recent years, but Chelsea definitely have a thing or two to say in this fixture, having recorded two wins and three draws in the last seven Head-to-Head between them.
Chelsea will be looking to keep their unbeaten record under Tuchel intact and Atletico will also pretty much want to avoid the pitfall of handing their visitors the initiative ahead of the second leg. Therefore we expect a very tight game and we are backing the two sides to be squared at Half time.
