Tips Atletico Madrid to win    Best Bet @ 23 / 20  

How Will It Go?

Antonio Conte's Chelsea breezed to victory in their opening Group C match, as they knocked six past Qarabag, but the Blues will face a far tougher assignment at the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday, and it's no surprise to see them installed as the 3/1 outsiders with Betfair Sportsbook, as they look to make it six points from their opening two matches.

A dominant 4-0 win over Stoke City at the weekend saw them move up to third in the Premier League, but Atletico are renowned as tough competitors on home soil, and you have to feel if Conte could take a point back to Stamford Bridge then he would be more than happy, and a draw after 90 minutes is 23/10 with bet365.

Unbeaten in their opening six La Liga matches, Atletico sit two points behind Barcelona in the Spanish top-flight, and with four wins and two draws coming in those sextet of matches then you have to feel that the 23/20 with Betfair Sportsbook is more than fair, and having beaten Chelsea in two of their last three meetings then an Atletico win is the way to go.

Goals Expected In Spain

You often associate frugal defending with Atletico, who have only conceded four goals in six La Liga games, and played out a 0-0 draw with Roma in their first Group C game, but Chelsea have been impressive in front of goal this season, and you have to fancy Conte's men to get a goal at least.

At 11/10 with Paddy Power the both teams to score odds is more than generous, but the brave punters out there could be worth mixing that in with a home win, and the 4/1 with BetVictor for Atletico to win and both teams scoring in 90 minutes is worthy of a dabble in a fascinating match.

Likely Scorers

Fernando Torres will face his hold club Chelsea, and the Atleico frontman is 6/1 with bet365 to open the scoring, but it's his strikepartner Antoine Griezmann that can ignite a home win, and at 43/10 with Unibet he is a great price to score first, while Blues' fans will look towards the in-form Alvaro Morata, but at 11/2 with most firms he can be ignored.
