Chelsea go head to head with Atletico Madrid as both sides look to advance towards the next round

The UCL action is back for Chelsea and a trip to Romania holds their fate for the advancement into the next round after seeing their management room flipped into under Thomas Tuchel. 

Frank Lampard guided the side into the Champions League round of 16 after finishing top of the Group E.

A win against Atletico Madrid will come as a major boost for Chelsea who look to fire up chase for UCL top place.

Atletico Madrid was handed a sad news late when their star defender, Jose Gimenez got sidelined due to a knock in their shocking loss to Levante. 

Blues hope to hold onto the loss as a weak point to exploit Diego Someone’s men and materialize a win from the outing. 

In a conference ahead of the game today, Tuchel disclosed to have had Pulisic and Kai Havertz already back at the squad but Thiago Silva is yet to make a return.

Atletico Madrid are likely to continue in their 3-5-2 formation despite having failed to materialize more than one victory from their last 4 games. 

Luis Suarez and Joao Felix are preferable for the up front pair role while 

Correa, Llorente,Kondogbia, Koke and Lodia flood the 5 man center field against a possible Chelsea 5 as well.


We could see a flooded center today if Tuchel also decided to go with a 5 man center formation as both manager look to dominate the center which is the heart of the game.

Jose Gimenez is out and would be replaced with likely Thomas Lemar who just returned to the line up in a substitute appearance against Levante when he replaced Gimenez. 

Felipe takes the back center while Mario Hermoso takes the other side. 

At the other end, Pulisic and Havertz are back and could possibly make the line up.

Having been pulled off early during their 1-1 Southampton draw over the weekend, Hudson-Odoi could also start against Madrid today.


Thiago Silva is still out and that means Christensen is more likely to get a Champions league action today. 

Timo Werner and Olivier Giroud could be paired upfront while N’golo Kanté holds the defensive midfield. 

Atletico Madrid possible line up: Oblak; Lemar, Felipe, Hermoso; Correa, Llorente, Kondogbia, Koke, Lodi; Luis Suarez, Joao Felix.

Chelsea possible line up: Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Alonso, Pulisic, Kanté, Havertz, Hudson-Odoi; Timo Werner, Olivier Giroud.
