- for the 2 nd leg Champions League clash on Wednesday R-16
- The Stamford Bridge outfit haven't tasted a defeat in any competition since the appointment of the German as their manager on January 26
- Atletico, on the other hand, have lost two of their last six games in all competitions, including the 1-0 first leg defeat at the hands of the blues
Chelsea will be aiming to extend Their 10-match unbeaten run in all competitions under Thomas Tuchel When They take on Atletico Madrid in the 2 nd leg Champions League clash on Wednesday R-16.
The Premier League outfit have won six and drawn four of the ten games they have placed since the appointment of former PSG and Borussia Dortmund manager as their head coach on January 26. However, the fact that three of the four draws have come in the last six games might be a cause of concern.
Diego Simeone's side, meanwhile, have come down from their self-anointed status as runaway champions of La Liga from early January to becoming embroiled in a three-horse race for the title after winning just two of their last six games in the Spanish top- flight.
Their perilous domestic form also reared its ugly head in Europe during the first leg, when Chelsea fully deserved their 1-0 victory after a disjointed performance from Los Rojiblancos. Simeone, then, would be hoping his side put in a better show on Wednesday evening.
