Nothing is guaranteed in Group C just yet except the elimination of Azerbaijani side Qarabag who have garnered 2 points after 5 games. Chelsea tops the group having collected 10 points from 5 games, AS Roma are second after accumulating 8 points in the same number of games while Atletico Madrid have 6 points. Atletico Madrid find themselves in unfamiliar territory where they are faced with the tough task of fighting for their qualification. Diego Simione’s men need a stroke of luck to proceed. They need to win their game against Chelsea and hope that Roma are defeated by Qarabag. If either of the two conditions are not met, then Atletico Madrid won’t qualify for the next stage.
A win for AS Roma who host Qarabag at the Stadio Olympico and a win for Atletico Madrid will see Chelsea lose the top spot in the group. Antonio Conte’s men need at least draw in this game to qualify.
