Chelsea is aiming for a chance in the semi-finals of the Champions League this season. The Blues didn’t have a successful Premier League this term, but they are still in the top four of the PL table. Giroud finding his form has been a great relief for the English side, but Mason Mount will miss the clash after suspended with yellow cards.
Atletico Madrid also showed a dip in form especially after the 0-1 loss at home in the first leg with the host in UCL this term. The Spanish side is leading the La Liga table and has dropped points recently, creating more space to the closest sides on the table. Simeone and his men will not see a one-goal margin lead as a big hurdle for them in the fixture.

Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Chelsea will try to build on their win from the first leg of the playoffs. The host enjoys the ground advantage and has a decent form in the major competitions in their schedule. The Blues have lost none of their last 13 fixtures across all major contests so far.
In the meantime, Atletico Madrid cannot be taken lightly by the English men. The likes of Suarez and Felix in the team show great potential for a comeback. On the contrary, the narrow one-goal lead in the aggregate will allow the Blues to play more defensively in the game.
However, the absence of Mason Mount is going to make problems in the middle for Thomas Tuchel. The Spanish side is likely to take advantage of that in the clash. Hence, the tip for BTTS will probably be a suitable option for the punters in the encounter.
Furthermore, the home team can withstand the continuous attacks of Los Indios in the middle. The slight dip in form for Atletico Madrid will also come in handy for the host. Thus, the draw no bet over Chelsea will probably be the safest bet to yield decent returns in the fixture
