Chelsea 1/1 to beat Atletico Madrid in Tuesday’s Champions League encounter
Competition: Champions League
Market: Chelsea to beat Atletico Madrid
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet365
The Champions League is back for the final chapter in the group-stages of the competition as each and every team battles for an invaluable three points, be it to prolong their European campaign, or for pride. With this in mind, two heavyweights of the European game come together to battle, with Chelsea hosting Atletico Madrid.
Chelsea have been able to navigate a very tough group this year to claim a place in the next round of the competition with a game still to play. After five games they have won three times, drawn one game and lost the other. Considering they had to come back from a damaging defeat at the hands of Roma in their fourth game, they have done very well. They currently top the group with 10 points, and a win over Atleti would assure them of top spot.
For Atletico Madrid, it is win or bust. After five games the Spanish side have won once, drawn three times and lost once, meaning they have collected six points. Second-placed Roma have eight points and play bottom side Qarabag, and Atleti need the minnows to topple Roma in conjunction with their own win over Chelsea. It seems unlikely that Atleti will be playing in the latter stages of the Champions League, but they will believe that anything can happen, especially as pressure does strange things to even the best teams. However, we are backing the home side with odds of 1/1 from Bet365.
