Often it pays to go for the obvious and our betting tip for this Champions League clash is to bet on two goals or less being scored at the Wanda Metropolitano.
seeing Real Madrid play Atletico Madrid was like watching the new David and Goliath fight. Although Bayern Munich fought against the odds to secure their place in the knock-out stages of the Champions League, Liverpool met Real Madrid's challenge of tracking down Atletico Madrid in the last sixteen, only to see themselves crash out of the tournament to the Spanish side.
Atletico Madrid will be favourites to beat Chelsea.
Atletico Madrid are having a good season domestically, with their recent 2-0 reverse in the Madrid derby the first time they have tasted defeat in La Liga this season and they will be well-prepared for a game which will see a former Chelsea striker line up against the Blues.
Diego Costa has not played so many games this season, but he may have a small involvement. As for Luis Suarez, he would be very useful to Atletico at crucial moments. They have an outstanding defence, so they should be able to hold the result.
Chelsea has been said to deliver a good defence in Madrid.
Though he is not naive, Frank Lampard will know about this Champions League clash and will do a lot of due diligence when it comes to their rivals, Chelsea particularly having the experience of being knocked out by an eventual winner (Bayern Munich), a much stronger overall squad this time around.
Had the visitors come in on the better side of a goal difference tie, they would have been in a pretty decent place but it looked like losing 1-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano was a difficult loss before catching Liverpool in the second leg on the road and the final score was 4-1 for Atletico Madrid.
Be sure to take note of the match because the score might be lukewarm or cool and that there could be one goal or less considering that Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma will run a tight ship between hard-working midfielders such as N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic.
