Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone will be against a familiar face in Alvaro Morata on Wednesday night in the Champions League as Atletico host Chelsea in a highly anticipated Champions League clash.

Morata who signed from Real Madrid, Atletico’s strong rivals will be back in Spain to face his former rivals, and Simeone has admitted he knows a lot about the 24-year-old.

“Morata is a very important player,” Simeone told reporters at his pre-match press conference.

“He has great movement in the box, he knows how to play with his back to goal and can keep the ball.

“He will perform really well at Chelsea alongside players like Willian, [Eden] Hazard and Pedro.”
