It’s do-or-die for Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League as they visit Group C leaders Chelsea this evening.
Atletico lost 2-1 to Chelsea on matchday two in the first European game played at their new Estadio Metropolitano home, and had to wait until their fifth fixture, a 2-0 home victory against AS Roma, to get their first win on the board in this season’s UEFA Champions League.
Diego Simeone’s Atlético therefore have six points, two behind Roma and four adrift of Chelsea.
The Spanish side need to win and hope Roma fail to do so at home to bottom side Qaraba? FK to finish second; if both finish on nine points, Atlético have the superior head-to-head.
Chelsea made sure of progress with a 4-0 victory at Qaraba? last time out. They will take first place if they win, or if Roma fail to win.
Coverage starts at 7.00pm on BT Sport 3 and BT Sport 3 HD. Kick-off 7.45pm.
The match will also be streamed live on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
