Betting Tip: Atletico Madrid +0 Asian Handicap
The bookies can hardly split these two in the match markets and it looks like qualification will likely be from the finest of margins. Atletico Madrid have been one of the serious forces in knockout competitions under Diego Simeone given their usually stringent defence keeping them in games. That renowned solidarity has been called into question of late though and it’s the first time Los Colchoneros have gone seven games without a clean sheet under the long reign of ‘El Cholo’.
I do think they have it in them to keep this very tight as they’ve managed to do so over the years. Chelsea haven’t really hammered anyone under Thomas Tuchel and given this is a first leg there might not be much in it. Technically this counts as the Spanish sides’ home leg despite them playing 2000 miles away in Bucharest due to COVID protocols, Chelsea will still probably be happy with a draw going into their home leg at Stamford Bridge.
I’d just about edge towards Atleti here and considering we can get our money back if it ends all square it makes sense to take them with a +0 start on the Asian handicap at 17/20.
