Correct score - 2 : 1

Chelsea FC vs Atletico Madrid 17.03.2021

Like a game of chess, this tie is delicately poised but it is advantage Chelsea coming into this second leg, after they came away with a valuable 1-0 win away in Madrid when they squared off in the first leg at the end of February. 

That performance has come to typify Chelsea under new German tactician Thomas Tuchel. The Blues are defensively solid and ruthlessly efficient on the attack. They have slowly and steadily clawed their way back into the top-four matrix in the English Premier League. They were held to a goalless draw at Elland Road against Leeds at the weekend, which slowed their momentum but did not derail them as they still maintained their grip on the fourth and final Champions League slot. 

Atletico on their part harbor bigger ambitions than a top-four finish in Spain. They seemed to be running away with the league but a string of poor results in the league in recent weeks including a goalless draw of their own at the weekend at Getafe has left the door wide open and we now have a three-way battle with the other Spanish giants Real and Barcelona that is likely to go down the wire.

Atleti will have no choice but to attack from the get-go to try and even this series. This is therefore likely to give us a much more open game than we had in the first leg. Both teams boast of quality attacking players and we foresee both teams finding the back of the net here.
