Atletico Madrid visit Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the round of 16 rematch of the Champions League. The Spanish club decided to spend as short a time as possible in London.
This is the reason why the "mattresses" gave up training at Stamford Bridge.
The first match between the two teams was played in Bucharest, and Chelsea won it with 1: 0. The match was played in the Romanian capital, as the "blues" could not travel to Madrid, because then they had to be quarantined.
The intention of the bosses of Atletico Madrid is for the team to spend as little time as possible in London due to the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The idea of Atletico Madrid is to spend all the time before the match at the hotel and all members of the team to be isolated.
London is one of the cities with a higher rate of COVID-19 infection.
