Atlético Madrid – Chelsea headlines This Week’s Soccer on TV and Online

When Thomas Tuchel was hired to replace Frank Lampard, he was done so with the hope of helping the Blues salvage a top four spot in the Premier League and make a run in the Champions League.

The Blues are unbeaten since Tuchel took over, and while their recent draw against Southampton has slowed their momentum, Tuchel’s men still head into this week’s Champions League showdown against Atletico Madrid undefeated under their German manager.

Atletico Madrid will pose a difficult challenge for Chelsea, but the current La Liga leaders have their own issues heading into this week’s Round of 16 opener.

Diego Simeone, whose safety is the polar opposite of  Tuchel’s, had Atlético looking unstoppable for the first half of the La Liga season, but the success has been unsustainable as the team’s runaway act has dissipated into a thin three-point lead over crosstown rival Real Madrid. The Rojiblancos have dropped points in three of their past four league matches, suddenly re-opening the La Liga race and raising fresh questions heading into this week’s meeting with Chelsea.

Atletico-Madrid Chelsea headlines a quartet of UEFA Champions League offerings this weekend that includes defending champion Bayern Munich’s visit to Lazio and Real Madrid’s trip to Bergamo to take on high-flying Atalanta.

Here is a look at This Weekend’s Top 5 Matches to Watch, along with a full rundown of the soccer viewing options available this week:

Top 5 Matches to Watch

    1. Atlético Madrid vs Chelsea – Chelsea is a mess. But this one isn’t about the top 4 in England, and maybe a trip to Spain is what the team needs to sage the room.
    2. Lazio vs Bayern München – Bayern, defending the UCL crown, should pass the test but Lazio has some impressive wins which see their hopes still alive, and rose to the occasion to embarrass Juventus in the Supercoppa Italiana final in December.
    3. Atalanta vs Real Madrid – Can Atalanta go on another wonder run? This is not the Real Madrid of old, but they have weapons which have helped them surge back into the La Liga title picture as of late.
    4. Borussia Moenchengladbach vs Manchester City – Knowing that  Moenchengladbach can make Bayern look human, they’ll make some real noise if they can do the same to the Cityzens.
    5. Arsenal vs. Benfica. After playing to a 1-1 draw in the first leg, this high-profile Europa League Round of 32 clash returns to London, where the Gunners will look to Bukayo Saka to deliver some magic.
