With a 1-0 win in the away leg, Chelsea of the Premier League now host current La Liga frontrunners Atlético Madrid. Can Atleti turn things around in London? Don't miss a moment with our Chelsea vs Atlético Madrid live stream guide.

In their last meeting, Chelsea secured a narrow 1-0 win which gives them not only an aggregate lead but an away goal advantage as they try to book their spot in the Champions League quarter-finals.

It was a tight game last time out with relatively few chances for either side. Ultimately, a superb Olivier Giroud overhead kick was the difference-maker in Bucharest for the last leg.

Today's hosts Chelsea are still unbeaten under new manager Thomas Tuchel and have notched two further victories and two draws since their last Champions League outing, leaving them in fourth place in the Premier League as things stand.

Despite suffering defeat in the neutral Arena Naţională venue for the first leg, Atlético Madrid have held their place at the top of the La Liga table. Diego Simeone's side have gone four games undefeated including a bitter Derbi Madrileño clash against Real Madrid that ended 1-1.

Going into this game, the onus is very much on Los Rojiblancos to find a way back into the tie and overturn the aggregate deficit. With the game on a knife-edge, it looks set to be an entertaining affair.
