One of the good news for Chelsea is that Kai Harvetz and Christian Pulisic will be available for Chelsea tonight. 

Ahead of the thrilling clash between the two sides, here are a few things to remember:

  • In their head-to-head clashes, the game is balanced between the two sides as both have had 2 wins each, 3 draws each, and 11 goals each as well. 
  •  Athletico who is currently the LaLiga leader is unbeaten in 13 home games in Champions League (W9, D4). 
  •  Coming into this game, Athletico are unbeaten in LaLiga in their last 7 matches, save their last defeat to Levante, while Chelsea have not lost their last 7 matches, since Tuchel took over from Lampard.

Good news for Chelsea

1. Luiz Suarez Poor Record 

If there's any striker Chelsea should fear, it is not Luiz Suarez as he hasn't scored any goals for Athletico Madrid in the Champions League, since when he was signed in. So, tonight Christensen and Kante if clinical to mark Suarez out, goal should not be expected from the Uruguay mam, as the record is already against him. 

2. No home advantage 

Another good chance Chelsea has going into the game is that this first leg won't be played in Athletico Madrid's home but on a neutral ground in Romanian. So, there won't be anything as of 'home advantage. 

3. How prolific Giroud is 

Till got the Europa League for Chelsea under Sarri, Giroud was sharp, scoring in every game, and since the beginning of the 2021 campaign, Giroud has netted in every game he started, and including when he came up as a sub.  

It is certain 'one man's meat is another's poison as Chelsea will be happier to have a better chances in their game Athletico. 

Suggestive prediction: Athletico 1 - 3 Chelsea
