Chelsea could book their place in the Champions League knockout stages this evening if they beat Roma and other results in the Group C go their way.
The Blues played their part in a thrilling 3-3 draw when the two sides met earlier this month with Edin Dzeko and Eden Hazard both scoring braces.
Chelsea currently top the group with seven points from three games and can qualify for the next round if Atletico Madrid fail to beat Qarabag this evening.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will be looking for greater defensive solidity from his side when they play tonight. And the likely return of N’Golo Kante to the side should help in this respect.

Kante should be back in contention from a hamstring injury and Danny Drinkwater is now available after recovering from a calf strain.
Victor Moses remains unavailable with a hamstring problem which will mean Antonio Rudiger gets an opportunity in defence as Conte reshuffles to provide cover on the right.
Cesc Fabregas should get an opportunity to play ahead of compatriot Pedro.
