Monday, March 15th, 2021 - 08:00 PM Kick-Off GMT at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano

Atalanta Comeback

Real Madrid's effort in the Champions League has begun to dwindle towards the tournament's latter stages. They are now without a successful outing in their previous four home games in the UCL knockout stages, and should this trend continue; a fearless Atalanta squad will be prime to hand Madrid a shock exit from the competition.

Atalanta came up short in the reverse fixture on their home turf (0-1), but we should highlight the facts – they were without Remo Freuler from the seventeenth minute as he was red-carded, leaving Atalanta with one less man.

Let us remember Atalanta's 2020 efforts in Spain, defeating Valencia 4-3 in one of the tournament's most thrilling encounters. And as owners of the best UCL away record, La Dea will be brimming with confidence, knowing they held Madrid to just one goal with ten men.

Form, Mentality, Champions League Odds & Trends

  • Real Madrid is undefeated in 5 of their last 6 Champions League fixtures.
  • In Real Madrid's 4 most recent Champions League games, under 2.5 goals were scored.
  • Atalanta's games have produced under 2.5 goals in their previous 4 UCL appearances.
  • Atalanta has kept a clean sheet in each of their last 3 away Champions League Games.
  • Atalanta has won their previous 5 away fixtures in the Champions League.

Considering the efforts of Atalanta with a 10-men squad and Madrid's inconsistency, it would be hard to ignore the value on Atalanta at the very least, claiming a draw this week.

Chelsea vs. Atletico Madrid

Wednesday, March 17th, 2021 - 08:00 PM Kick-Off GMT at Stamford Bridge

Tuchel & His Defensive Masterclass

The arrival of Thomas Tuchel has been a breath of fresh air at Stamford Bridge; Chelsea fans and critics alike have had little to complain about since his arrival. And in the reverse fixture away from home, he proved his worth once again with a comfortable 0-1 victory over Spain's La Liga leaders.

Atletico Madrid is six points clear in La Liga of their nemesis Real, but UCL hopes could be swept from beneath them should Chelsea provide another defensive masterclass.

Tuchel has lived up to expectations, keeping his Chelsea team in the undefeated column since his arrival twelve games ago. Besides, Chelsea has held the opposition to a clean sheet in their previous five fixtures in all competitions.

Form, Mentality, Champions League Odds & Trends

  • Chelsea has conceded 0.29 goals during their UCL fixtures.
  • During their previous 6 home games in the UCL, Chelsea remains undefeated in 5 of those meetings.
  • Atletico has won just 1 in from their previous 7 UCL away days.
  • Atletico fixtures have produced under 2.5 goals in their previous 5 UCL matches.

Final Thoughts| Champions League Betting Tips

I think you can approach this fixture from two angles, another Chelsea success or a lack of goals on the scoresheet. But you cannot discredit Chelsea for the lack of goals because their results have been near flawless.

The Blues are undeniably the team in-form here, and until they prove otherwise, we're backing the beastly tactics of Thomas Tuchel in a low-scoring affair.
