Mason Mount Chelsea 2020-21

Chelsea face La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid at the Puskas Arena, Budapest, in the first leg of their Champions Leaguelast-16 tie on Tuesday evening, with the game having been moved to Romania because of coronavirus travel restrictions.

Chelsea were the last team to beat Atletico at home in the Champions League, with the Blues recording a 2-1 group stage win in September 2017.

Diego Simeone's side have since gone 13 home matches unbeaten in the competition and bet365 offer the hosts at 31/20 (2.55) despite this not being played in the Spanish capital.

The Premier League outfit, meanwhile, won all three of their group games on the road this term and are available at 2/1 (3.00) with the draw at 21/10 (3.10) .

Los Rojiblancos are still missing the suspended Kieran Trippier, whilst Yannick Carrasco is a major doubt after missingthe weekend game with a muscle problem and midfielder Hector Herrera is also out with coronavirus.

Chelsea will be hoping that injured trio Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva will be fit enough to be included in the matchday squad, with all three players closing in on returns from their respective injuries.

Atletico have long been one of Europe's best defensive outfits, but they come into this clash on one of their worst runs in recent years.

Saturday's 2-0 home defeat by Levante was the seventh consecutive game in which Los Rojiblancos have conceded, their longest run of matches without a clean sheet since Diego Simeone took over in December 2011.

Chelsea should be able to take advantage of this considering they have netted in 18 of their last 20 encountersin all competitions, as well as in their last five Champions League.

There should definitely be some interest in opposing the hosts to keep a clean sheet, given their current defensive run as well as the visitors' efficiency in the final third.

Both teams to score is priced at evens (2.00) which looks like an excellent selection, while backing Chelsea to net over 1.5 goals is offered at a healthy-looking 9/4 (3.25) .

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
