Both teams have been regulars in the round of 16 in recent seasons. This year marks Chelsea's sixth time in the knockout round in the last eight seasons, although they have not advanced since 2013–14. Atletico, which ended that campaign, is making its seventh appearance at this stage in the last eight years. 

The Blues have remained unbeaten in this year's campaign and finished first in Group E. Atletico Madrid, meanwhile, suffered a heavy 4–0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Matchday 1 and responded with a home win against Salzburg. The club drew its next three matches but beat Salzburg, 2–0, on Matchday 6 to secure second place in Group A behind Bayern. 

Since the group stage, Chelsea replaced manager Frank Lampard with Thomas Tuchel at the end of January.

All seven of Atleti and Chelsea's previous fixtures have come since 2009, with two victories and 11 goals scored apiece.
