Atletico Madrid Played A '6-3-1 Formation' Against Chelsea In Champions League And Still Managed To Lose

Atletico Madrid showcased their tough defending approach as the Spanish side deployed a '6-3-1 formation' against Chelsea in the Champions League.

Diego Simeone's men clashed with the Blues at the National Arena in Bucharest, Romania, in the first leg of their round-of-16 clash.

And Atletico, who are known for their strong defensive displays, turned that up a notch as they frustrated Chelsea before succumbing to a 1-0 defeat on Tuesday.
