Chelsea vs Atletico Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Statistically, match Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid gives many different options, how the things will end in group C. However, reality is much clearer and this match probably will not change anything big when it comes to who is going further and in what competition.
Chelsea are first placed team in this group. Whether they win or lose, they will continue the competition in the next stage of the Champions League. On the other side, Atletico Madrid are absolutely sure to continue the competition in Europa League, but if they win and if Roma loses, which is highly unlikely to happen, they could theoretically take over second place and a chance to continue the competition in the Champions League. However, neither of two teams are willing to take risk and gamble with their destiny, we expect one very closed, calculated and tough duel this Tuesday afternoon. Chelsea are third placed team in their home League, and in a very good run in all competitions. They are eager to win this match, get all three points and secure themselves at the top of the table.
On the other side, Atletico Madrid are also third placed team in Spanish Primera and also in a very good run, the second best in the league. They are entering this match fully fit, highly motivated and willing to give their maximum in order to win, and hope for Roma to lose and go to the knockout stage of the Champions League. They will not risk too much in this match so they don’t get in a position to chase the result, but will try to use their fast attackers and with long balls, skipping the midfield will try to outrun Chelsea’s defenders and score. Even though most of the action in this match will occur at the midfield, we do expect some scoring chances on both sides and many interesting duels.
When it comes to their mutual encounters, Chelsea won in their last match against Atletico Madrid, earlier in group stage, however Atletico Madrid won in two and stayed undefeated in four matches before against Chelsea in all competitions. In this match there will be no actual favorite to win and only one mistake could decide the winner.
