Chelsea return to Champions League action this evening as they welcome Atletico Madrid to Stamford Bridge.

Preview

It’s the final match of the Champions League group stage this evening and it promises to be a massive one for both teams.

Chelsea welcome Atletico Madrid to Stamford Bridge with both sides needing the win. The Blues will secure top spot in the group if they get all three points while the visitors need to win and hope Roma lose to bottom-placed side, Qarabag.

Team News

David Luiz will miss the match as his knee injury persists but manager Antonio Conte could call on striker Michy Batshuayi after the Belgian was an unused substitute on the weekend.

The visitors are expected to welcome both Stefan Savic and Thomas Partey to their defence but striker Diego Costa hasn’t travelled to London for the match.

Betting

Chelsea are the firm favourites for the match with best-priced odds at 29/23. An Atletico win is 66/25 with a draw at 13/5.

The Blues have kept clean sheets in half of their home matches this season but considering the visitors need to win, we can expect them to attack. A 2-2 draw is out at 16/1 and wouldn’t be completely out of the question.
