Chelsea and Atlético de Madrid will play tonight at Stamford Bridge, behind closed doors, the second leg of their knockout round of the Champions League.
In the first leg, the Blues managed to win at the Metropolitan by 0-1, so they start as favorites to qualify for the quarterfinals.
Chelsea have had a tremendous run of results since Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard on the bench: 8 wins and 4 draws. The German coach has infinitely improved the defensive balance of the Londoners, who have only conceded 2 goals in the aforementioned 12 games.
Atlético, meanwhile, after making a great start to the season, has deflated a bit in recent weeks. After being eliminated prematurely from the Cup, he has suffered setbacks in the League against Levante (twice) and Getafe. These punctures have allowed Barcelona and Real Madrid to get into the fight for the league title.
Simeone’s men will jump onto the Stamford Bridge turf to score. The Argentine coach will have to adopt an offensive tactic and will use his attacking arsenal, giving prominence to players such as Luis Suárez, Marcos Llorente, Correa, Carrasco or Joao Félix. Chelsea will appear at the meeting with some casualties (Thiago Silva, Jorginho, Mount and Abraham).
A very competitive match awaits us, in which Atleti has to give their chest.
