Lazio 0-1 Bayern Munich (Lewandowski) 20:10 10 mins The Blues have had 74% of the ball but it's Atletico who have looked the more dangerous going forward. No shots for either side, however. 20:10 8 mins Good defending. Altetico win the ball back in the Chelsea half and Felix has the ball on the left. He floats one to Correa at the back post but Alonso does well to win the header. 20:07 6 mins Chelsea starting to find their feet in this game and are stringing a few passes together. Atletico looking like they will be a tough nut for the attack to crack. 20:06 3 mins Oh dear. Chelsea get away from one as Azpilicueta plays an necessary heavy pass across his own box to Mendy. The Chelsea stopper makes a mess of it and is closed down by Saul. Fortunately for the Blues, the deflection travels away from goal and Alonso clears the danger. The 'visiting side' need to settle down here. 20:02 1 min João Félix shows an early sign of his quality, driving through the centre of midfield with Mount proceeding to haul him down. He rightfully receives a booking and now misses the second leg. 20:01 KICK-OFF Chelsea get us underway. 19:56 Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is averaging a goal every 28 minutes in the Champions League this season - five goals in 142 minutes. Four of those came in his only start - against Sevilla. 19:49 2 – Thomas #Tuchel becomes only the 2nd manager in the history of the Champions League to manage 2 different clubs within a single CL season (after Ronald Koeman 2007/08). Variety. #ATMCHE | #UCL pic.twitter.com/skBZ0EEZas— OptaFranz (@OptaFranz) February 23, 2021 2017 - Chelsea are the last team to beat Atlético Madrid in an 'away' game in European competition – it was in September 2017, Atlético’s first ever European match at their new Wanda Metroplitano stadium (1-2). Spoiled. pic.twitter.com/Q8tdvaO69V— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) February 23, 2021 19:38 Stretch it out lads! ????#ATMCHE pic.twitter.com/RtQOUN47uO— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 23, 2021 19:35 Simeone on Tuchel The Atletico boss said: "We'll be facing a team with a coach that has managed to get every side he has taken charge of to play attractive football. "He has come to a club that have a lot of financial power and who always make good signings "This season they've signed some excellent young players and since Tuchel has arrived they've improved their results a lot. "But their squad speaks for itself, just look at the quality of their three goalkeepers, that proves their power, and their attacking players could get in any team in the world." 19:30 30 minutes to kick-off The warm-ups are underway in Bucharest. Not long to go now... 19:23 The odds Despite Atletico Madrid's drop in form of late, they still come into Tuesday's Champions League clash as the favourites. Simeone's men are favoured at 17/10 to win, while Chelsea are the underdogs at 19/10, with a draw at 2/1. Unsurprisingly, La Liga's joint-top scorer Luis Suarez is the favourite open the proceedings at 4/1, though he is tied with team-mate Moussa Dembele at the same price. As for Chelsea, Tammy Abraham is the favourite to break the deadlock at 11/2. *Odds courtesy of Betfair  19:23 And while the boys are checking out the pitch, here’s a sneak peek inside the Blues’ dressing room! ????????#ATMCHE pic.twitter.com/bsZZLy2kQV— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 23, 2021 19:11 Atletico's road to the last-16 Atletico Madrid were certainly drawn into a harder group than their counterparts, with Bayern Munich, RB Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moskow completing the four. The Spanish giants were typically defence-focused, conceding just the eight goals in six matches. However, it was in attack where they struggled, scoring only seven goals throughout, with neither Luiz Suarez or Angel Correa netting once. That translated into draws - three of them, including a double against Lokomotiv Moscow and their home tie against Bayern Munich. Their most notable fixture was not one to remember, however, as they were thrashed 4-0 away at Bayern in their group stage-opener. 19:10 Chelsea's road to the last-16 Though Chelsea will have been delighted to win their Champions League group stage, they will have been less than pleased to find out their opponents as a result. The group stages were negotiated entirely under the stewardship of Frank Lampard, before he was sacked at the end of January. The Blues remained unbeaten throughout the group stages, claiming four wins and two draws. In truth, Chelsea were granted a relatively straightforward group, with Sevilla the only team of note, with the quartet completed by Rennes and FC Krasnodar. Though drawing in their opening and final group stage fixtures - both in home games, the first to Sevilla and the second to Krasnodar - Chelsea sealed there progression in the mid-games. Their most notable performance came early in December, when Olivier Giroud scored all four goals as Chelsea beat Sevilla 4-0 away. 18:58 Lazio vs Bayern team news Lazio XI: Reina, Patric, Acerbi, Musacchio; Lazzari, Milinkovic-Savic, Lucas Leiva, Luis Alberto, Marusic, Correa, Immobile Bayern Munich XI: Neuer, Sule, Boateng, Alaba, Davies, Kimmich, Goretzka, Sané, Musiala, Coman, Lewandowski ♦️ Starting XI and subs for #LAZFCB ♦️ #MiaSanMia #packmas pic.twitter.com/Wlh07oKBnE— ????????????FC Bayern English????????????
