The Group C of the UEFA Champions League are poised in such a way that Chelsea have already qualified for the knock-outs with ten points. AS Roma are placed second with eight points and will be playing Qarabag at home while Atletico Madrid are third with six points.
A Chelsea win will help Antonio Conte’s side top the group, while a win for Atletico Madrid could lead to AS Roma topping the group, for the Serie A club has an easy game. In an event where Atletico Madrid wins tomorrow and AS Roma somehow loses, the Serie A club will be knocked down to the UEFA Europa League.
Michy Batshuayi, David Luiz and Kenedy remain doubts due to injury concerns. Atletico Madrid will be without the ineligible Diego Costa while Juanfran will face a late fitness test.
Chelsea Possible Starting Lineup: Thibaut Courtois, Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Gary Cahill, Victor Moses, Cesc Fabregas, N’Golo Kante, Tiemou Bakayoko, Marcos Alonso, Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata.
Atletico Madrid Possible Starting Lienup: Jan Oblak, Thomas Partey, Stefan Savic, Diego Godin, Felipe Luis, Koke, Gabi, Saul Niguez, Yannick Carrasco, Antoine Griezmann, Kevin Gameiro.
