Total Goals Under 2.5

Both teams are having troubles with scoring lately, so this should be a low-scoring affair. In fact, both of them participated in scoreless draws in their last league matches. We also expect the high stakes of the match to further make the teams alert and careful. With these two factors combined, we can’t see this match having more than two goals, if that.

Both Teams to Score – No

We’ve already said that we don’t expect many goals here. With that in mind, betting on at least one team to remain scoreless seems like a good prediction. Of course, anything is possible, but Atletico Madrid has only scored 7 goals in their 7 games in the Champions League. Chelsea was much more efficient in group stages, but they are struggling in the offence since Tuchel took them over.

Chelsea and Atletico Madrid to Draw in the First Half

Since we don’t expect many goals, we feel that the first half will end without any goals. As we mentioned, this game has extremely high stakes for both teams, so the first half should pass in checking out the pulse of the other team. Both teams will focus on not conceding too early, so this should be a good betting tip.

Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid preview: As close as it gets

The match between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid should be one of the closest in the Round of 16 of the Champions League. So, we have researched their current form to provide you with an in-depth preview of the match.

Chelsea

When the club legend Frank Lampard was let go from his managerial position, Chelsea was in poor form and out of the top 4 in the Premier League. The arrival of Thomas Tuchel has done wonders for the team, especially in defence. However, in the past five matches in the league, Chelsea won two times and drew twice. Still, they are in good form and they’ve climbed to the 4th spot in PL. Mount and Jorginho will serve a ban due to yellow cards against Atletico Madrid, while Thiago Silva and Abraham are out due to injuries.

Atletico Madrid

After a surprising loss in the first leg to the English team who wasn’t in the best form at that moment, the situation for Atletico is quite different right now. Atletico is still top of the league in Spain, but they have dropped points lately. In the past five games, they have only won two, with two draws and one loss in that span. Luckily, Atletico currently has a clean bill of health, which can be a bit of a boost.
