Our Tipster’s Angle

This is expected to be a high voltage clash as two of the regulars in the champions league go head to head and a high scoring match on the cards. By considering the recent form, this fixture is slightly tending towards Chelsea.

Tip 1: Both Teams To Score

Both the teams scored a goal is five of the last six matches that these two sides played in the UEFA competitions. These two teams were a part of group C in the 2017 Champions League and both the teams scored in both the group stage matches. Also, both the teams scored in six of the last seven matches that Atletico Madrid have played in all competitions. Chelsea on the other hand had both teams scoring in two of the last three away matches that they have played in all competitions. Both the teams possess enough firepower to beat any defense and score a goal. So it is more likely that both the teams will find the back of the net at least once at 2.05 odds available at the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Chelsea To Win or Draw

After a perfect start in La Liga, Atletico Madrid are slightly fading away as they have dropped seven points in their last four matches. While Chelsea have been rock solid and have dropped just two points in their last five matches in the Premier League. Atletico Madrid have just two wins in their last four home matches. While Chelsea have won three and drew just one in the last four away matches in all competitions. Atletico have hosted Chelsea in three matches previously, where Chelsea have won one and drew the remaining two. So it is more likely that Chelsea will avoid defeat and at least settle for a draw at 1.50 odds available at the Casumo sportsbook. 


With the team combination that they have, Chelsea are more likely to make it to the next phase of the tournament. And also, we might expect some fight from Atletico Madrid as well. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above.

  1. Both Teams To Score @ 2.05
  2. Chelsea To Win or Draw @ 1.50
