Luis Suarez backed by Simeone to end Tuchel’s unbeaten run.
The Blues are unbeaten in the last 13 games and a setback in the round of 16 second-leg would actually work for Simeone’s side.
Simeone hopes Suarez can end his barren run against the Blues as he failed to score in all his Champions League games for Atletico Madrid this season.
“I believe Suarez is very important for us,” Simeone said.
“Probably tomorrow is the right day for Luis Suarez to end the (goalless) streak. Why not? Tomorrow could be a beautiful day.
“I believe today Chelsea don’t have a weakness. The only thing is they don’t know what can happen from a negative point of view.
“They have not had a negative result yet and that will be a question until it happens.”
Simeone added: “We are facing a team that has done quite well since their coach has come, they have never lost. They feel strong at home and are playing quite well.
“They have had games like us around the Champions League matches that have been close and tough. Tomorrow, we just have one result, to win. We have to take the match where we want so we can win with a goal.
“The single idea is to win.
