Watching two of Europe’s most dedicated football managers Diego Simeone and Antonio Conte dance against the touchline at the brand-new Wanda Metropolitano is likely to be a proper football feast.
The two teams are expected to follow their managers’ suit and we should definitely expect to see a brilliant performance in one of the highlight matches of the second round of the Champions League group stage between Atletico Madrid and Chelsea.
Roji-blancos welcome the Premier League champions on the back of three successive La Liga victories which ended up being Atletico Madrid’s traditionally low-scoring affairs with the exception of the 2-1 win at Athletic Bilbao.
On the other side, Chelsea has been in a fine scoring form of late, bagging nine goals in last two matches.Meetings between these two defensively organised and particularly tight units would traditionally bring plenty of goals. Should that be the case once again, goals will definitely add to the spectacle we expect to see.
A deeper look into the head-to-head statistics, however, will tell us that last two matches between these two sides in Madrid ended in a draw and we feel that bet365’s 23/10 betting odds on a stalemate in Madrid offers great value.
