Chelsea have got their tails up in the Premier League this season and have shown their tremendous form in their last match against Stoke City, demolishing the Potters by 4-0, courtesy of a hat-trick form their new Spanish forward Alvaro Morata. They have also shown complete dominance in their very first match of the season in the Champions League making it a 6-0 win against Qarabag and made a headstart into the campaign after missing out in the last season.
Their immediate opponents from the next match, Atletico Madrid, are in good form as well and are presently unbeaten this season so far in the Spanish La Liga. They, however, did not have the same fate as Chelsea and were held to a 0-0 draw by Italian giants Roma in their very first match of the season in the Champions League.
However, Los Rojiblancos will look to get back to winning ways when they face Chelsea, which is going to be a clash of the giants in their own backyard.
The Red and White army are having an injury-free season so far and are set to come out all guns blazing when they take on Chelsea at the Wanda Metropolitano. Their gaffer Diego Simeone will still be worried about the fact that they will be facing one of the best teams in Europe, who are playing brilliantly in the current season, whether domestically or on the European stage.
The Blues also don’t have to worry about any injuries as such and have their full strength going into the match against one of the most well-balanced sides in Europe. They will also welcome their Brazilain centre-back David Luiz back in the side after serving a three-match ban due to a red card in the Premier League.
The Rojiblancos will be looking at their talismanic attacker Antoine Griezmann, who has been in prolific form throughout the last few seasons and has handed them a number of big victories. He will once again play a very crucial role and will be expected to make an impact when his side meets the reigning Premier League champions on home turf.
The Blues have a number of brilliant players in their team but all eyes will be on their Spanish forward Alvaro Morata, who scored a hat-trick in their very last game in the Premier League against Stoke City and will look to repeat his performance against Atletico as well.
