Chelsea face Atletico Madrid in UCL

05/12/2017

Chelsea host Spanish side Atletico Madrid in tonight's Champions League match, knowing that a win will secure them top spot in the group.

If second-placed Roma lose to Qarabag, the Blues will finish top no matter what happens, which is likely to give them a better draw in the knockout stages.

However, there are some tough teams currently sitting in second-place in their groups.

Five-time winners Bayern Munich, who Chelsea beat to lift the 2011-12 Champions League, have lost out to Paris Saint-Germain.

Juventus, who have lifted the title twice, look very likely to come second to Barcelona, while Real Madrid, who have won the trophy a record 12 times, are currently behind Tottenham Hotspur in their group.

Knowing Antonio Conte and his side, though, the bigger the team, the more exciting the challenge!

The first time Chelsea faced Atletico was actually in a Champions League group game in 2009. The Blues hammered the Spanish side 4-0, Atleti's biggest ever defeat in the competition!

Since then, the two sides have shared the spoils, with two wins for each and two draws in the six matches between them.

The latest match was a few months ago in September, when Chelsea beat Atleti 2-1 away to make it two wins in two UCL matches.

Chelsea are one of three English sides already through, alongside Spurs and Manchester City. If Manchester United and Liverpool also go through, which looks likely, it will be the first time five English sides are in the last 16 of the Champions League!

They'll find out who they face during the draw on 11 December from 11am.

Kick off tonight is at 7.45pm UK time. Check out BridgeKids tomorrow for a full match report!
