Atletico Madrid will take on English champions Chelsea in the first European match at their brand new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Wednesday night. While Atletico Madrid played out a frustrating 0-0 draw with AS Roma on Matchday 1, Chelsea brushed aside Azerbaijan minnows FC Qarabag by smashing 6 goals without reply at Stamford Bridge.
Let’s dive straight into the Team News.
Atletico Madrid Team News:
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has almost a full roster to choose from as he attempts to topple Chelsea. Yannick Ferreira Carrasco should get the nod ahead of Thomas Partey, while Angel Correa is expected to start up front alongside Antoine Griezmann.
Probable Starting XI: Oblak; Juanfran, Godín, Lucas, Filipe Luís; Gabi, Saúl, Koke, Carrasco; Griezmann, Correa.
Chelsea Team News:
Chelsea will most likely welcome back Eden Hazard in the starting XI after the Belgian was rested against Stoke City on the weekend. Conte prefers playing David Zappacosta in place of Victor Moses in Europe and is likely to persist with the same strategy against Atletico. Antonio Rudiger may get the nod ahead of Gary Cahill at centre-back.
Probable Starting XI: Courtois; Rudiger, David Luiz, Azpilicueta; Alonso, Kante, Fabregas, Bakayoko, Zappacosta; Hazard, Morata.
