Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea 28/9/2017
Atletico’s swanky stadium, the Wanda Metropolitano, will host its first ever UCL game. Atletico are on a 11-game unbeaten home record – at Vicente Calderon – in this competition. The Spaniards look like they have adjusted to their new home, delivering two wins out of two there in the league. They will be aiming to protect a fine home record, where they have kept an astounding 16 clean sheets of their last 19 games.
Atletico opened their campaign with a goalless draw at Roma, while Chelsea sent debutants Qarabag to the cleaners with a 6-0 rout. Both last met in the 2013/14 semi-finals. Atletico won 3-1 at Stamford Bridge after the first leg ended goalless. Captain Gary Cahill faces an anxious wait to reclaim his starting spot. The Englishman was dropped for the 4-0 win at Stoke on Saturday with an eye to this fixture. David Luiz, though, who is in the midst of a three-match domestic ban, is guaranteed to start.
