Atletico Madrid are the favourites to win this match, in what is the first ever Champions League match at their new Wanda Metropolitano stadium. The Spaniards are priced at 2.2 with Unibet.
It’s a clash between two of Europe’s elite, and two sides who are perhaps more well known for their defending rather than their attacking. It should be an intriguing, tactical battle with little between the teams.
Chelsea’s last two away trips to Atletico have ended in draws, albeit both coming at the Vicente Calderon. They drew 0-0 in the Champions League semi-final in 2014, and 2-2 in the group stages in 2009.
Both teams won at the weekend and are in good form. However, Atletico have already drawn 0-0 twice this month and often struggle to break down strong defensive units such as Chelsea.
The Blues will recognise that this is their hardest match of the group, and will perhaps opt to play fairly safe and not too many risks. They will want to win, but after getting off to a flyer beating Qarabag 6-0, a draw wouldn’t be the worst result.
Atletico Madrid host Chelsea at the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday night. The Blues are looking to become the first opposition team to score and win at the new stadium.
Chelsea have been in good form, getting back to winning ways in the league with a 4-0 away win at Stoke City on Saturday. Alvaro Morata scored a hat-trick and will now want to get off the mark in Europe.
Chelsea Form: WWDWWW
Atletico have made their best start since the year they won the league in 2013/14. They will be desperate to win in the first Champions League match at the new stadium after drawing their opener against Roma.
Atletico Madrid Form: WWWDDW
Atletico have had the better of recent contests, winning the European Super Cup final in 2012 and defeating the Blues in the 2013/14 Champions League semi-final. However, Chelsea were 4-0 winners at Stamford Bridge in the group stages in 2009. They have only met fiev times before in their history.
Chelsea will be without Danny Drinkwater and Pedro due to injury, although David Luiz and Gary Cahill are set to return in defence. Diego Costa has now of course left the club, sealing his move to Wednesday’s opponents Atletico last week.
Diego Costa may have signed from Chelsea last week, but neither he or fellow new arrival Vitolo can play until January. Augusto Fernandez is injured, but otherwise Atletico have a clean bill of health.
Home Win: Draw at 3.3 with Unibet
0-0 draw at 8.0 with bet365
