Match facts

Atletico Madrid

  • The overall head-to-head between Atlético Madrid and Chelsea in European competition is perfectly balanced, with two wins each, three draws and 11 goals each.
  • Atlético Madrid prevailed in their only previous UEFA Champions League knockout tie with Chelsea - it was in the 2013/14 semi-finals (3-1 on aggregate).
  • Atlético Madrid have reached the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League for the seventh time in the last eight seasons. Meanwhile, Chelsea will attempt to progress past the round of 16 for the first time since the 2013/14 campaign (semi-finalists).
  • Luis Suarez has never failed to score or deliver an assist in a UEFA Champions League season - this is his eighth campaign in the tournament. He's so far goalless and assist-less in his four games with the Madrid side in 2020/21.

Chelsea

  • Chelsea are the last team to beat Atlético Madrid on their own turf in European competition - it was in September 2017, Atlético's first ever European match at their new Wanda Metroplitano stadium (1-2).
  • Chelsea were trailing for a grand total of four minutes during this season's UEFA Champions League group stages, less than any other side. Also, only Manchester City (1) conceded fewer goals than the London side (2) in the group phase.
  • The Blues were one of only four teams to win all three of their away games in this season's group stages, alongside Atalanta, Barcelona and Juventus; they also scored more goals on the road than any other side (10). However, their last away win in the knockout stages of the competition dates back to March 2012 against Benfica (1-0).

Predictions

Atletico will be desperate to secure a first-leg advantage ahead of a trip to London next month, and we can see the La Liga leaders edging a tight game. Chelsea are yet to ignite in the final third of the field since the change of manager, and we are finding it difficult to back the Premier League side to triumph, but a 2-1 defeat, securing a vital away goal in the process, would leave the contest delicately poised.
