Chelsea Are The Winners Of The Champions League Draw – Here’s Why

With Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid the potential opposition for Chelsea in the semi-final of the Champions League, Blues fans will have been happy for their club to draw the latter. Real Madrid drew Bayern at home for the first leg, while Chelsea will also travel to the Spanish capital, but to face Diego Simeone’s Atleti – probably the best draw Chelsea could have asked for.

With the two best clubs in Europe battling it out for a place in the final, it will be between Chelsea and Atletico to gain the place of the underdog. For me, I think Chelsea will progress.

Atletico have been brilliant this season. They are top of La Liga and knocked Barcelona out in the last round, but they are not used to this success and I think it will get to them over the two legs.

Chelsea’s strength at Stamford Bridge could be too much for Atleti, especially as it is the second leg. We saw against Paris Saint Germain in the previous leg that their home tie made the difference, and I think it will be the case once again.

For me, Chelea are the real winners of the tie. Blues, what do you think?
