Atletico Madrid welcome Chelsea at the Arena Naţionala in Bucharest, Romania due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. This is the first-leg match of Last 16, while the reverse fixture will be on March the 17th. Atletico Madrid were the team that dethroned Liverpool at this stage 12 months ago. They are successful this season too, making a strong bid for their first La Liga title since 2013/14 season. The actual form isn't at desired level, they suffered a 2:0 home defeat to Levante on Saturday. The Valencia outfit scored an early goal and then successfully defend. Atletico have created 28 efforts on goal, but were thwarted by goalkeeper Dani Cardenas on several occasions. The 23-year-old was in superb form, notably stopping Joao Felix's strike from point-blank range before blocking a thumping half-volley from the Portuguese forward. He also scrambled across his goal to keep out a late low drive from Renan Lodi. Luis Suarez's brilliant 30-yard free-kick thundered off the woodwork. The smaller club from Valencia took away 5 points from Atletico and the situation is additionally complicated after Real won their last fixtures and cut the difference to only three points. The atmosphere in Atletico squad isn't good as previously, but Simeone will try to rebuild the players confidence. The Argentinian coach will be without the key defender Jose Gimenez, who limped off the field against Levante in La Liga on Saturday after suffered a recurrence of a muscular problem. Stefan Savic didn't play against Levante due to suspension, but should replace Gimenez in the starting eleven for this game. Yannick Carrasco is also sidelined with a muscular issue, while this match come too soon for Sime Vrsaljko. Hector Herrera must spend two weeks in isolation following a positive coronavirus test. Finally, Kieran Trippier is still serving a suspension for breaking betting rules.
Chelsea were impressive during the group stage and they finished first ahead of the Spanish outfit Sevilla. Even more, the Blues destroyed Sevilla at Pizuan, winning 4:0 as guests. The group also contained Russian outfit FK Krasnodar and French side Rennes. The Blues had four defeats and two draws on six matches. But many things have been changed since then. The most important, head coach Frank Lampard was replaced with Thomas Tuchel in January. There was a immediate improvement in terms of results under the German coach. Chelsea have four victories and two draws on the six league matches under Tuchel. They beat Burnley, Tottenham, Sheffield United and Newcastle, while shared the points with Wolverhampton and Southampton. The Blues also secured the FA Cup quarterfinals after beat Barnsley. The atmosphere in the squad is excellent, while the players confidence is high. Tuchel also has a big Champions League experience, he led Paris Saint-Germain to the final last season, ultimately losing to Bayern Munich. The 47-year-old coach will try to repeat the success, though it will be extremely difficult. Tuchel put the focus on defense and Chelsea has conceded just two goals on seven matches under his helm. One player that he will need to pay special attention is the former Liverpool and Barcelona forward Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan striker is La Liga's joint top goalscorer with former teammate Lionel Messi. Tuchel has few injury issues as veteran defender Thiago Silva is sidelined with a muscular problem, while Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic are both rated as doubtful. On the positive note, Tammy Abraham is available after overcome an ankle injury.
Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea Prediction:
I expect no more than two goals in Bucharest. Atletico are in small crisis, they have scored just one goal on the last two matches against Levante. Chelsea, meanwhile, have conceded just two goals on seven matches lead by Tuchel. I expect careful approach from both coaches, so this should be a low scoring match.
Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea Pick: Under 2.5 goals @ 1.59 with 10Bet
They win over Sampdoria at 1-0 in last game, which makes them the fourth in the table of Italian Serie A again. In addition, they play so well as host that they have got a seven-match winning streak in various League and Tournament.
They have been winless for two matches. Obviously they are not in form in recent games. But their top scorer, Robert Lewandowski are still in good state, who has scored 26 goals for Bayern Munchen this season.
Bayern Munchen take the upper hand over Lazio even if they are in poor state. But Lazio have the quality. Bayern Munchen play poorly on defensive in recent games. It is a good chance for Lazio to defeat Bayern Munchen in the upcoming game.
1. Bayern Munchen have titled 2021 FIFA Club World Cup. There is no doubt that the strength of the six champions is first-class in the Bundesliga and the Champions League. Although Bayern rank 1st in a group consisting of Atletico Madrid, RB Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moscow, they lost 2-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt in Bundesliga on weekend. The reason was they had injuries and COVID-19 issues. Lazio will also have chance to score. We may predict a draw this game.
2. The handicap odds was -1 with medium returns at first. Then the live odds has adjusted to -0.5/1 with medium stage. We can also see in 1×2 odds, the returns for away team has goes up. Lazio drew 2-2 against Club Brugge and advanced in knockout stages, which was the first time in 21 years in history. We may predict Lazio's defense can make it one goal (1-1).
