Chelsea vs. Atlético Madrid: Time, TV schedule and how to watch online

Mike Hewitt

Will anyone try to score?

Atlético Madrid couldn't beat Chelsea at home, but they'll feel like they have some control over the tie after they avoided conceding. Jose Mourinho's defensive tactics worked to perfection, but he's playing a dangerous game by caring more about not losing on the road than grabbing an away goal. Now, if Atléti score once, Chelsea will need to score twice.

Both teams had big matches over the weekend domestically. Atléti opted to play most of their first choice players away to Valencia, while Chelsea decided to rotate heavily away to Liverpool. Both teams came away with wins, keeping clean sheets in the process.

Chelsea probably rotated more heavily than Atléti because they have significantly more concerns with fitness and suspensions. John Obi Mikel and Frank Lampard are both suspended, while Mohamed Salah and Nemanja Matic are cup-tied. John Terry and Petr Cech are also suffering from injuries, but both trained and will attempt to play. Jose Mourinho's words on Tuesday seem to suggest that Terry is fit to start, while Cech is not. There are also concerns over the fitness of Eden Hazard and Samuel Eto'o, but both are expected to start.

The only player Atlético Madrid are missing for sure is Gabi, who is suspended. Adra Turan also has a slight groin problem and may or may not be fit to play on Wednesday.
