Joao Felix will start against Chelsea - Simeone

Tue 16 March 2021 | 13:42

Champions League Round of 16 is going to end this midweek as the last second leg games are being played.

Atletico Madrid

are going to lock horns with

Chelsea

in a highly awaited clash, with the

La Liga

leaders suffering a 1-0 defeat in the first leg.

The Portugal international

Joao Felix

has been struggling with a frustrating year; however, manager

Diego Simeone

revealed that he is going to be in the starting XI when they travel to Stamford Bridge.

The 21-year-old has met the target in the clash against Villarreal in their latest league victory, which was his second in 17 games as he is working on finding his best form.

Simeone said:

“Joao Felix will start tomorrow (Wednesday)

.”

The Portuguese forward started the battle against Chelsea in the first leg, but he was sent off due to a poor performance. It could have been a big chance for him to prove himself.
