Chelsea v Atletico Madrid Betting Preview
Chelsea have one foot in the quarter-finals after claiming a vital narrow win - and away goal - in the first leg. They remain unbeaten under Thomas Tuchel’s managerial spell so far, winning eight and drawing the other four across all competitions. Furthermore, they have only conceded two goals in the process. The Blues will be looking to overcome Saturday’s poor second-half display against Leeds (0-0), a result that left the Londoners 4th in the Premier League standings.
Atletico Madrid currently sit first in La Liga and will be looking recover a 1-0 deficit from the first leg. On a run of two wins in seven matches, form is not on their side. They were held by 10-man Getafe at the weekend, which could lend itself to a cagey opening with neither side showing much fluidity in attack. Anyway, a shock 1-0 defeat to Cornella in the Copa del Rey represents Atletico's sole defeat on rival territory since the turn of the year, and they have navigated their last six away matches in La Liga without defeat.
Best OddsChelsea are favorite (despite the price is drifting) at 7/5 with Unibet. The draw is backable at 11/5 with Ladbrokes while the best price for Atletico to win is 17/5 at Betfred.

Team News & Probable Line-Ups
Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Kante, Kovacic, Alonso; Ziyech, Werner; Giroud
Tuchel used a 4-2-3-1 system at Leeds on Saturday, but may revert back to his tried and tested 3-4-2-1 setup here, with Kai Havertz expected to drop on bench. The German manager will be without midfielders Jorginho and Mason Mount, as they are both suspended. N'Golo Kantè and Mateo Kovacic will anchor the midfield while Calllum Hudson-Odoi and Marcos Alonso are favourite to start as wing backs. Thiago Silva and Tammy Abraham are also not available for selection due to injuries, meaning that Andreas Christensen and Olivier Giroud will feature from the off.
Atletico Madrid (4-5-1): Oblak; Trippier, Gimenez, Savic, Lodi; Koke; Joao Felix, Llorente, Saul, Correa; Suarez
Atletico Madrid enters the match with a fully fit and healthy squad since Kieran Trippier and Yannick Carrasco, who missed the first leg, are both recovered. Joao Felix should come back into the XI after starting on the bench last weekend. Saul Niguez was hauled off at half time against Getafe but is nailed on to start this game. Renan Lodi and Mario Hermoso are in contention for a berth on the left side of Diego Simeone's backline while Josè Jimenez and Stefan Savic will be paired at the centre.
Our Chelsea v Atletico Madrid PredictionsAtletico Madrid’s standards have been slipping recently meanwhile, and Diego Simeone’s side have won just three of their last nine fixtures in all competitions. Tuchel has yet to taste defeat as Chelsea’s head coach, a full 12 matches into his tenure. With both teams solid at the back, they could cancel each other out on Wednesday night. A goalless draw or a 1-1 draw is on the card.
