LIVE
Post.
The draw, combined with Roma's 1-0 win against Qarabag means what the Italian side claim top spot in the group, with Chelsea dropping to second. Atletico meanwhile miss out on the last 16 altogether.
94'
FT: Chelsea 1-1 Atletico Madrid. Stefan Savic's own-goal cancels out Saul's opener to give both sides the result that they were hoping to avoid pre-match.
92'
Batshuayi fires just wide of the far post after a strong surge forward.
90'
4 minutes added on.
89'
Atleti want a penalty as Correa goes down under Cahill's challenge but all they get is a corner that is cleared away.
88'
No sign of that goal that Chelsea crave so much...
85'
Griezmann is about a yard away from turning home Vietto's low cross. Granstand finale?
83'
What a chance! More magic from Hazard sees him get to the byline and his cut-back is perfect for Willian but he leans back and blazes over form 12 yards. Has top spot gone with that chance?
81'
A tad surprising this one as Morata is replaced by Batshuayi.
80'
Chelsea need one more goal to reclaim top spot in the group! Can they find it?
79'
Vietto replaces Gimenez for Atletico.
76'
What a chance! Chelsea get in immediately from the restart as Fabregas squares to Morata but Oblak flies off his line to make the block!
75'
GOAL! CHELSEA! O.G. SAVIC: A corner is only cleared as far as Eden Hazard on the edge of the box, he skips past his man and fires across goal where the ball ricochets in off the unfortunate Savic.
73'
Willian replaces Zappacosta for Chelsea.
71'
Pedro is sent sprawling in the box but the referee is unmoved. Looked like a good decision on first viewing.
68'
Chelsea knocking on the door here! Pedro backheels Moses' cross goalwards and a combination of Gimenez and Oblak prevents Morata from tapping home three yards out.
67'
Great chance! Chelsea take a quick corner down the left and Christensen heads wide with the goal gaping. It came at him quickly but what a chance that is!
66'
It's worth noting that Roma are ahead against Qarabag so a win here would not be enough for Atletico to qualify.
64'
A very attacking change from Antonio Conte as Pedro replaces Bakayoko.
60'
Bakayoko bursts forward from midfield but fouls his man in the box and Chelsea lose their momentum.
57'
Generous applause for Fernando Torres as he is replaced by Yannick Carrasco.
56'
GOAL! ATLETICO! SAUL! Too easy! A corner from the right is headed on at the near post and Saul ghosts away from his marker round the back to head home to give Atletico the lead!
53'
POST! Luis nearly enacts revenge as his effort from the edge of the box crashes back off the post, before Saul heads the rebound at Courtois! The game is opening up here!
52'
Zappacosta is booked for a late challenge on former Chelsea man Filipe Luis.
50'
Close! Morata meets Fabregas' corner from the right but Oblak is able to palm it up into the air before gathering at the second attempt. Chelsea should be ahead here.
49'
Chelsea's turn to threaten! Fabregas sees a low cross blocked away before Christensen heads Hazard's quickly-taken corner too close to Oblak.
47'
Griezmann steps up and catches it well but Courtois is equal to it. The visitors will be looking to test the Belgian more in this second half.
47'
Christensen fells Griezmann and Atletico have a dangerous free kick just right of centre 30 yards out.
46'
Chelsea get us back underway. Can either side find a winner?
45'
HT: Chelsea 0-0 Atletico Madrid. All level at the break here but Atletico will be happy with their display and will no doubt grow into the game further in the second half.
45'
1 minute added on.
45'
Ouch! Cahill has just clattered Griezmann as the Frenchman cleared the ball but he'll be fine to continue.
41'
Atletico are back on top after that spell of Chelsea pressure.
37'
What a save from Oblak! Zappacosta is set away down the left and on the edge of the box he cuts inside before firing in a powerful low effort at the near post but the Atletico goalkeeper makes a fine save low to his right to maintain parity.
34'
Hazard sees a low cross scrambled away before Bakayoko mugs Griezmann and crosses to the far post but Oblak reads it well and gets up to claim it.
31'
Chance! The ball comes in low from the right and Hazard looks to fire it goalwards but mainly catches thin air and after some penalty box pinball, Atletico clear.
29'
Partey smashes over on the volley after a corner drops to him on the edge of the box. Still goalless here.
24'
Morata goes close again with a speculative effort form an angle on the left but despite catching it sweetly, Oblak is equal to it.
23'
Chelsea look a real danger on the counter. Eden Hazard covers 40 yards before the blues win a throw on the right, form the throw, Victor Moses gets the the byline and pulls the ball back for Morata but his low effort is well kept out by Oblak.
17'
Morata goes very close for Chelsea! He gathers the ball on the edge of the box, turns and curls an efofort narrowly wide of the near post. Oblak didn't even move!
16'
Lucas Hernandez is booked for rattling the shins of Eden Hazard as Chelsea looked to counter.
14'
Fabregas swings it in but it is easy for Oblak.
13'
Chelsea have a chance to get the ball in the box as Gimenez fells Morata in the left channel.
11'
Atletico are pressing Chelsea very high here. Will it pay off?
8'
Atletico looking confident early on here as a Filipe Luis cross is hacked clear.
5'
Torres gathers Koke's long range shot and bundles into a gap before seeing his shot from 18 yards deflected over. He would love a goal tonight.
5'
Both sides surrendering possession cheaply in the opening exchanges here.
2'
Zappacosta cuts in from the left and shoots over from range early on.
1'
