Chelsea vs Atl. Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
Sixth and final round of the UEFA Champions League group stage. This week will show which teams can qualify for the KO phase. We look at the match between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid. The sporting conditions are clear. The Madrilenians have the Europa League safe and can only winter through a small miracle in the Champions League. They must win in London themselves and at the same time hope that AS Roma will not win against Qarabag Agdam at home. Then they would be tied to the Romans and would continue on the direct comparison. On the other hand, the Chelsea Football Club has to win as well, so as not to lose first place in the event of a Roman victory. The game takes place at the traditional Stamford Bridge. As always, kick-off is at 19:45.
Showdown for Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge. On the final day of the Champions League group stage, London will face Atletico Madrid. It is in this game to defend the championship lead in Group C. The team of coach Antonio Conte has currently ten points two points ahead of the direct rivals AS Rome and four points ahead of today’s opponents from Madrid. This means that they can no longer compete in the knockout phase, but first place in the table would mean a slightly easier opponent in the next round. A tie can not be enough for this first place. We must assume that AS Roma will win their home game against Qarabag. In the direct comparison between Chelsea and Rome, the Italians have the better cards, as they have won their home game 3-0, while the game ended in London 3: 3. So for the English it can only mean winning the game. The form is there. Of the last eleven competitive matches, Chelsea has lost only the game in Rome. Otherwise, they won eight wins and two draws in all competitions. In seven of the eleven games fell more than 2.5 goals. For Tuesday there is a question mark behind the use of Michy Batshuayi. In the international competition, Eden Hazard is the best scorer in London with three goals and two assists. In the Premier League, Alvaro Morata is the top scorer with nine goals.
Atl. Madrid :
For Atletico Madrid, the minimum chance to reach the knockout phase of the Champions League is still to be achieved. Currently, the Madrilenians are with six points on rank three of the table. This third rank would only be enough to qualify for the knockout phase of the Europa League. In this bad starting position, they have brought themselves by celebrating their first victory in the fifth group match. Just like Chelsea, the Spaniards have an impressive run. Since defeat at Chelsea, they have been without competition for thirteen games in all competitions. The last four official games were all won together. Coach Diego Simeone will probably miss Juanfran. Best scorer of the Spaniard is superstar Antoine Griezmann, who scored five goals in the league and two goals in the Champions League.
