Since the arrival of manager Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea has yet to lose a match. They are unbeaten in the last 12 matches behind an organized defensive setup that has recorded five straight clean sheets. However, Chelsea has only scored four goals in those last five matches. Chelsea will not have midfielders Mason Mount and Jorginho on Wednesday due to suspension.
Atlético has hit a rough patch of late with only two wins from its last seven matches, diminishing its lead atop La Liga four points over Barcelona. Former Barça star and Atlético’s leading scorer Luis Suárez enters the match looking to break an infamous streak of 26 straight European away matches without a goal that dates back to September 2015.
