Chelsea’s head coach Antonio Conte. Photo: GLYN KIRK / AFPChelsea manager Antonio Conte promises his side will look to win against Tuesday’s opponents Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, yet warned that winning the group doesn’t necessarily ensure an easier route to the final.
Conte’s men have already qualified for the next round but know a victory at Stamford Bridge will secure top spot in Group C and a potentially easier fixture when the Champions League resumes in February.
However, Conte was quick to point out that winning the group could pair the English champions with the likes of Real Madrid or Bayern Munich in the second round.
Opponents Atletico must win to have any chance to progress. Roma face FK Qarabag in the group’s other fixture with the Italians two points ahead of Diego Simeone’s team.
If Atletico, twice losing Champions League finalists in recent years, were to crash out at this stage it would provide a shock, yet Simeone promised his side would fight until the last moments of the game.
