We expect a 0-0 draw at 10.00 with bet365
The Blues have already qualified from Group C of the Champions League, but still need a win against 2014 and 2016 finalists Atletico to ensure top spot.
Both teams will have an eye on events in Rome, particularly the visitors who first need to win themselves and also hope Qarabag take points in the Stadio Olimpico if they are to qualify.
It will be a tactical clash between two of the most well organised teams in Europe. Antonio Conte and Diego Simeone both set up their teams to be as tough to beat as possible.
For this reason, we could see Atletico and Chelsea cancelling each other out and playing out a draw at 3.60 with bet365. However, it’s not a result that would particularly suit either.
If Chelsea drop points and Roma win then they will finish second and risk playing the likes of Barcelona or PSG in the last 16. This could encourage them to play attacking football, but they are up against the joint best defence in Europe’s top five leagues.
Despite their poor start to the season which leaves them on the brink of Champions League elimination, Atletico have been much improved recently and have won their last four matches.
Their main problem this season is too many draws – they very rarely lose – and we could see the two teams defences taking centre stage here in a 0-0 stalemate at 10.00 with bet365.
Chelsea host Atletico Madrid in a crucial Champions League match on Tuesday night. The Blues have already qualified but need a win to top the group. Atleti can still qualify but need to win and hope Roma fail to beat Qarabag in the other game.
The Blues have been back in form recently, and have won 8 of their last 10 matches in all competitions. On Saturday they were 3-1 winners over Newcastle, keeping them third in the Premier League table.
Chelsea Form: WWDWWW
Much has been made of Atletico’s poor start to the season, particularly in the Champions League, but they have won their last four matches and are unbeaten in La Liga. Chelsea are the only team to beat them in any competition this season.

Chelsea and Atletico have played six times before, with the H2H completely even at two wins a piece plus two draws. The Blues won 2-1 in the Wanda Metropolitano earlier in the season, but lost 3-1 in the last meeting at Stamford Bridge in the 2014 Champions League semi-final.
Belgian duo Michy Batshuayi and Charly Musonda are both out injured for the Blues as well as winger Kenedy, with David Luiz is also unlikely to feature. Atletico are missing defender Juanfran due to injury.
