Sevilla will be an annoying opponent. They work super hard and are very clever and technical. But if Pulisic and Werner run rings around Carlos he might snap and give away a pen . 
Rennes was defeated by a much weaker Chelsea team twice last season. I think 13 are in it at least.

Worst draw possible I think, although perhaps Real Madrid burst their bubble a little at the weekend.

At least we've shown this season that we can play a game of attrition and nullify top counter attacking teams.

It'll be hard work, but its by no means mission impossible.

Win our group comfortably only to draw the toughest possible opponent. Cheers, lads. 

Honestly, it's all going to depend on how fit we are when this comes around. Atleti aren't an attacking juggernaut like Bayern who will batter you with beautiful football. This isn't an impossible matchup at all.

If Ziyech and Pulisic are fit for this (big if I know) I think we'll beat them pretty comfortably. Despite the fact they're top of La Liga they aren't as tough to play in big games as they use to be, people will point to them getting past Liverpool last year but that second leg was blind luck not a defensive masterclass.

Atletico did only concede 4 goals this season. Gimenez is injured right now.

With guys like Werner, Tammy and Giroud, who need 100 chances to score a goal, we do not have a chance. Also, Atletico only needs one chance. That is all they need

Agreed. They really aren't that good. Only Felix I'm worried about as he has the talent to do something out of nothing. 

We play a clean game with no mistakes and a fit squad, and we win this.

Atletico are a bit of a peculiar bunch. We know they can be good but they also can be underwhelming. They failed to beat to Lokomotiv Moscow over the 2 games and somehow couldn't beat a Bayern B side in the group stage. And then there was the Champions League last season, where they were so flat against Leipzig.

Looking from a pessimistic POV, it'd be less of an embarrassment if we lose to Atletico than say Porto, Gladbach or Atalanta. 

But either way, the tie will be good learning curve for this team and their development. If we can get past Atletico, it'd give the players confidence for the quarter finals etc.
