Frank Lampard’s side will travel to the Spanish capital for the first leg on February 23, with the return match taking place at Stamford Bridge on March 17.
Speaking about the challenge posed by Atletico, Lampard said: “I think most people will say it’s the toughest draw that we could have had.
“When you go on current form, how they’ve been in La Liga, European experience, quality of team and player, I think most people would say that.
“On the other hand, all draws are difficult in the Champions League. We have to have belief in ourselves and, when that game comes around, you’re going to have to beat these sort of teams if you’re going to win the Champions League so it is what it is.”
