Usually a force to be reckoned with and a tough nut to crack, La Liga side Atletico Madrid have gone through a difficult period at the international stage this season.
Diego Simeone’s men are sitting third in the standings – behind AS Roma and Chelsea respectively – and are bound to continue their European campaign in the Europa League knockout stages. The only scenario that could see them go through in the Champions League is to beat Chelsea and hope AS Roma drop points against Qarabag.
Only one win in five matches is not the result Los Rojiblancos had hoped for but with a four-point cushion ahead of fourth-placed Qarabag they travel to London without any competitive imperative.
Chelsea, on the other hand, will be keen to end the group stage on a high note and with a valuable win that would allow his to head into the elimination round from the leading position.
Blues have improved their form dramatically over the past couple of weeks and are once again looking like that title-winning side from last season.
With five wins in their last six matches across all competitions, Chelsea are the favourites to win here and can be backed with a valuable 6/5 bet offered at Betfair.
