Draw

Chelsea and Atletico Madrid were evenly matched in the first leg and it was a sensational goal from Olivier Giroud which separated the two teams. In a bid to claw back the aggregate score and progress to the next round, Atletico will be pumped up. However, Chelsea have proven to be very stubborn under Thomas Tuchel, who is unbeaten since taking over from Frank Lampard. Chelsea have the guile and composure to protect the slender first leg lead.

Total goals under 2.5

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea have been brilliant at the back with an incredible 10 clean sheets in 12 games across all competitions. This includes a streak of five consecutive clean sheets since Minamino’s goal for Southampton towards the end of February. Atletico also have a stringent defence. The Champions League betting tips are aware that both teams have not been prolific while scoring goals.

Draw at half-time

The first half will be a cagey affair Chelsea trying to protect the lead. Atletico will not be keen to push too many players forward and provide counter-attacking opportunities for the home team. This should see the two teams cancel out each other in the opening 45 minutes.

Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid: Team News and Match Preview

Chelsea

A slender first leg lead puts Chelsea in the front seat to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League. However, the lack of threat going forward from Thomas Tuchel’s men is likely to make them rely heavily on the advantage provided by Olivier Giroud’s first leg goal. The German is once again expected to make significant changes to the line-up which started the weekend’s draw against Leeds United. Tammy Abraham is doubtful for the game, while Thiago Silva might miss out again.

Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid have no option other than to go for a win following the first leg loss. The weekend’s draw with Getafe saw Atletico concede further ground to Real Madrid in the La Liga title race. After the lack of any home advantage in the first leg, Diego Simeone’s men will be hoping to get an early goal which will swing the tie in favour of the Spanish outfit. There are no injury concerns for Atletico coming into the game.
