This will be the first Champions League fixture to take place at Atletico’s new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

The last time these two clubs met in European competition was back in 2014. The Champions League semi-finals would be the setting and Diego Simeone’s men earned a 3-1 aggregate victory to progress to the final.

Diego Costa was on the scoresheet for Atletico Madrid that night and will be returning to his former club in January 2018.

Chelsea’s victory over Qarabag was the largest of the opening matchday after their resounding 6-0 win over the Azerbaijani champions. The win saw six different players get their names on the scoresheet.

Alvaro Morata may not have featured on the scoresheet that night but he has scored six goals in six Premier League matches and will look to open his Champions League account when he makes his return to the Spanish capital. The former Real forward has scored a league goal once every 76 minutes so far.

Atletico Madrid are undefeated in La Liga this season as they currently sit second in the table, four points behind Barcelona. Their opening six matches have seen them win four and draw two.

It seems as if when Atletico play this season the action does not start until after the restart, as on average they concede their first goal on the 56th minute and score their first on the 48th.

Chelsea are unbeaten since the opening weekend of the season and have only managed to fail to score in just one game - the 0-0 draw with Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

Atletico’s biggest win of the season so far is a 5-1 away win against Las Palmas in La Liga.

Angel Correa and Yannick Carrasco are the club’s joint top La Liga scorers with three goals each to their name. Between them they are responsible for 50% of Atletico’s current domestic league goal tally.
