UEFA Champions League

Odds: 1.72


Only in one of the last four head-to-head meetings teams scored less than two goals. Chelsea have scored fewer than two goals in just one of their last four home games. Only in one of their last six away matches Atletico failed to score. Atletico have not lost in any of their last six away games, having four wins and two draws.


Chelsea started the season under the leadership of Frank Lampard, with whom the "retirees" passed very confidently the tournament distance of the group stage of the Champions League. In a company with Sevilla, Renn and Krasnodar, the London club had no problems. With 14 points Chelsea turned out to be the strongest in the quartet, being ahead of the second Sevilla by one point.

However, a series of failures in the English Premier League forced the club's management to dismiss Lampard, whose replacement was found very quickly. According to the management, Thomas Tuchel, dismissed from PSG, was supposed to help expensive compatriots quickly adapt in England, as well as bring the club to the Champions League next season.

It should be noted that so far the German mentor is doing everything. Chelsea are on the fourth line in the table after 28 rounds. Fighting for the title will already be unrealistic, given the 20 points gap from Manchester City, but for a place in the top four, the “retirees” are able to impose a fight on Liverpool, Everton and Tottenham.

In the last round Chelsea scored a goalless draw with Leeds, thus not conceding in the fifth match in a row. However, points were lost and Tuchel had to make excuses for his too cautious play, who blamed everything on poor implementation.

As far as the Champions League is concerned, Chelsea have an excellent opportunity to advance to the quarterfinals. Olivier Giroud's brilliant goal in the first leg resulted in a minimal clean sheet win. However, this result has yet to be defended in London.


In the group of the Champions League "Atletico" had no particular problems, although the start of the group stage was not successful for Diego Simeone's team. Nevertheless, the “mattress” managed to win the second place, losing the first line to “Bavaria” - “Salzburg” and “Lokomotiv” fought, but none of these clubs could seriously encroach on a ticket to the playoffs.

In the Spanish Championship Atletico managed to take advantage of the crisis of Real Madrid and Barcelona in the first round, earning a decent handicap. At the moment "mattress" are on the first line in the table with 63 points, but they are only four points ahead of the second "Barcelona", the third "Real" has six points less. Such a handicap definitely cannot guarantee anything.

In the first meeting Atletico was very careful and played almost according to the 1-10-0 scheme, which eventually turned into trouble. Having conceded from Chelsea in the second half, Atletico has not found the strength to win back and now Madrid have to win in London. In general, there are definitely chances for success. A year ago the “mattress makers” knocked out “Liverpool” in England, as the protagonist of that fight Marcos Liorente recalled before the match.


Chelsea have been regularly gaining results lately, but at the same time there are a lot of questions for the team about the game, to a greater extent all of them are connected with playing in attack. Atletico lost in the first match, but definitely didn’t lose all chances of getting to the quarterfinals. The “mattresses”, like no one else, know how to squeeze the maximum out of a few moments.

We believe that hosts will not be able to win. Prediction is that Atletico will not lose. In bookmaker 1xBet this outcome is offered with odds of 1.72.

Considering the result of the first match, Atletico will not be able to play strictly from defense. Today the mattress players will have to take risks. The Spaniards have no problems with the implementation and they are quite capable of finding their moment. But Chelsea know how to use the free space, so it makes sense to count on goals in this meeting.

Our second bet will be over two goals total. This bet can be placed for 1.77.
