Tuesday's contest in Romania will be the first time that they have locked horns with Chelsea since the group stages of the 2017-18 Champions League, with the English club winning 2-1 in Madrid before the points were shared in a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Atletico and Chelsea were paired together in the 2017/18 group stage, the English club winning 2-1 in Spain before a 1-1 draw in London. And Antoine Griezman penalty (40) was overturned by Chelsea's Alvaro Morata (60) and Michy Batshuayi (90+3) in Spain before Stefan Savics 75th-minute own goal cancelled out Saul Niguez's 56th-minute opener in London.
This is a great history to Chelsea as they face big blow to Spanish giants today in a foreign land.
Predictions will depend on the way both teams will play. Chelsea players will be Kepa Arrizabalaga, Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, Andreas Christensen, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, Willy Caballero, Kurt Zouma, Edouard Mendy, Mateo Kovacic, Olivier Giroud, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech, Billy Gilmour, Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta, Kai Havertz, Emerson Palmieri.
