Diego Costa shows Chelsea
Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid
Antonio Conte’s Chelsea take on Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night in the Champions League.
The Blues take on the Rojiblancos looking to finish the UCL group phase in first place.
The hosts have already qualified for the knockout stage, but they’ve yet to secure top spot.
A win for the Blues would confirm a first place finish, but if Roma fail to beat Qarabag in the group’s other game, Chelsea can lose and still come first.
As for the La Liga side, Tuesday’s match is a must-win fixture for Atletico Madrid, who are yet to score away from home in the competition.

Once criticised for being overweight, Diego Costa is now fully ripped.
