Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea UEFA Champions League Football Predictions, Betting Tips and Free Picks

Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid have emerged as Champions League specialists over the last few years, but unfortunately for them that speciality doesn’t extend itself to the final itself, with both of their recent finals ending in defeat to arch rivals Real Madrid.

They will be hoping that this year breaks the chain, but they didn’t get off to the best of starts as they were held to a goalless draw away to Roma. This is by no means a bad result, but they will have been hoping to get the win rather than having to play catch up.

Chelsea equaling their biggest Champions League of all time last time out will just about be meaningless when this game kicks off at Atletico.  The English champions will be in a completely different world against a team that have not been knocked out of Europe by a team from outside of Madrid in the last three seasons.  

That's an astounding stat, and it shows just how good Atleti are.  That doesn't mean they are bulletproof, though, in the group stages.  They drew in Rome, though Roma did try to just grind out a result as Atleti were always the better side in the second half.

Chelsea +1 to tie is at 13/5.
