Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea

UEFA Champions League
Under / Over
Pick: Under 1.5 goals
Odds: 2.72
Stake: 1

Match date: 23/02/2021

Atletico Madrid and Chelsea will play in Bucharest due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. This is the first-leg match and both teams will not risk too much. But there are more reasons. Atletico are in poor form at the moment, they suffered a painful 2:0 home defeat to Levante on Saturday. The opponents scored an early goal and then successfully defend. Diego Simeone's men have registered 28 shots, but failed to score. Just three days before, Levante took two more points drawing 1:1 in Valencia. The atmosphere in Atletico squad isn't good as previously. In addition, Simeone will be without the key defender Jose Gimenez due to injury. Yannick Carrasco is also sidelined with a muscular injury. Sime Vrsaljko is also unavailable, as well as Kieran Trippier who is serving a suspension for betting.

Chelsea were excellent during the group stage, but many things have changed since then. First and most important, Franck Lampard was replaced with Thomas Tuchel. And the Blues are undefeated since the appointment of the German coach. They have 4 victories and 2 draws on the 6 Premier League matches. The atmosphere in the squad is excellent, while the players confidence is high. Tuchel put the main focus on defense and Chelsea has conceded just two goals since Tuchel is in charge. He has some issues too as one important player - Thiago Silva - is out with a muscular problem. In addition, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic are rated as doubtful.

I expect no more than one goal here. Atletico are in small crisis, while Tuchel will once again put the focus on the defense.I expect less than two goals here.

WIN Score: 0:1 Profit: +1.72
