We start by looking at the Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid favourite, which is the Spanish club. Having started their Champions League campaign with a disappointing 4-0 loss at Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid responded with a 5 match unbeaten run in the competition, including victories over Salzburg home and away plus a draw at home against Bayern Munich.
It is a very brave team. They have a lot of quality in their attacking players. Offensively, they have great dynamics and pace. At this stage every team is strong and competitive. I think that every game will be very even and very attractive for the fans to watch. For us playing against Chelsea is a big challenge and we will do our best to win. - Diego Simeone about playing against Chelsea, Mundo Deportivo
However, those Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea tips and predictions falling in favour of Diego Simeone’s side will have to take note of the two disappointing results against Lokomotiv Moscow. Atletico Madrid failed to beat the Russian club home or away and that will give some cause for concern ahead of this match.
Nonetheless, Atletico Madrid will remain confident thanks to their tremendous Champions League home record. They are undefeated in their last 13 home Champions League matches and have recorded victories over the likes of Roma, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, Bayer Leverkusen, and Liverpool. With a record like this, it is no wonder the thoughts on who will win the Chelsea vs Atletico match turn to the La Liga club.
Atletico Madrid are currently several points clear at the top of La Liga and William Hill have them as the favourites to win this game. Continue below as we take a closer look at the Atletico vs Chelsea underdog.
2. Outsiders for Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid
Next in this betting preview of Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea we look at the chances of the Premier League club as they aim to progress further than they did in the Champions League last season. When assessing who will be the Chelsea vs Atletico winner, we must consider The Blues’ away record in the competition and it shows 3 victories on the road in the group stage this season.
Chelsea have won 6 of their last 9 away Champions League matches plus picked up a draw at Valencia in November 2019. The 4-0 victory away from home against Sevilla should stand them in good stead for this fixture. However, Thomas Tuchel will be hoping for a significant improvement in recent performances leading into this game.
One thing to keep in mind when making picks for Chelsea vs Atletico is the fact the only team to record a victory in the last 14 Champions League matches at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano is Chelsea. This may be enough to tempt some people to back the Blues with Unibet. The draw is also available at interesting odds with Bet365.
We continue the Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid preview by looking at some of the other betting markets available. Atletico Madrid are a team who like to keep things tight in games and Simeone will be keen to keep a clean sheet ahead of the return leg in London. Therefore, when considering Atletico vs Chelsea tips and predictions, the odds with Unibet for under 2.5 goals is worth noting.
