Few months ago, the UCL round of 16 fixtures got drawn and Chelsea was chosen to face Athletico Madrid.However,the current form of these two teams seems to have explained the likely team that might qualify.
Chelsea have won only 2 of their last 7 matches, getting 1draw and then losing 4 of them while Athletico Madrid has won 6 of their last seven matches with only 1 loss. That loss was in the Copa del Rey competition which is played by the second team.
Since this draw was made, Chelsea have performed poorly despite the 6 major signings they made in the previous transfer window. The blues performed so poorly that they now occupy the 9th spot of the EPL table.Athletico on the other own are on a great form, the combination of Suarez, Joao Felix and Carrasco has really profited this Spanish team.
Moussa Dembele has also been signed to Athletico as Diego Costa's replacement, he has not been added to ATM's UCL squad and that could make him a doubt to face Chelsea. Judging from recent form, there is a higher possibility of Athletico Madrid to qualify for the next round of champions league competition ahead of Chelsea.
