Welcome to our Chelsea vs Atlético Madrid betting tips, prediction and odds analysis ahead of their UEFA Champions League clash at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
Chelsea carry a 1-0 advantage from the first leg and will thus go into the contest as the favourites considering that they claimed a vital away goal and win.
The Blues have been improved since Thomas Tuchel succeded Frank Lampard as their manager in January and they have yet to lose a game under the German.
Atletico will know that they have nothing to lose and will play and open brand of football.

Chelsea have home advantage and Atletico Madrid will find it difficult to penetrate the home defence. It should be another close and low scoring affair but Chlsea should be able to catch the Spaniards on the counter-attack and seal the tie. I expect a 1-0 win for Chelsea.
Anytime goal scorers
Chelsea- Olivier Giroud- Giroud scored in the first leg and will be hungry to score more in order to seal his place in the French squad which will contest the upcoming European Championships.He is perhaps Chelsea’s most consistent goal scorer in European competition and it won’t be surprising if he finds the back of the net against Atletico yet again.
Atletico Madrid-Luis Suarez-Despite his advanced age, Suarez remains a prolific goal scorer, having scored 18 La Liga goals so far. However, he has yet to find the back of the net in the Champions League and will be hungry to end that against Chelsea.
