The Premier League champions, Chelsea are about to host the Spanish giants Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday in the final fixture of the Champions League group stage.
Reportedly, Antonio Conte’s boys have already secured their place in the knockout stage of the tournament following their last 4-0 away victory over the Azerbaijani side Qarabag FK.
