PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Atletico Madrid defender Stefan Savic is looking forward to seeing old 'friend' Marcos Alonso again on Tuesday night. Savic and Alonso worked together at Fiorentina before their moves to Atletico and Chelsea, respectively, with the two exits coming less than a year apart. And on Tuesday night, the pair go head-to-head in Bucharest in a Champions League round of 16 first leg tie as Chelsea take on Atletico in the relocated knockout fixture, one that Alonso almost certainly wouldn't have played if it wasn't for the arrival of Thomas Tuchel last month. The Spanish left-back saw little action under Frank Lampard in the first half of the season, but he has returned to the starting XI with Tuchel preferring a system with three centre-backs and wing-backs.

"Yes, I know Marcos very well, we played together at Fiorentina. He is a great player," said Savic in Atletico's pre-match press conference. "He had great moments with me at Fiorentina and now at Chelsea. In the last games, when a new coach came, he is playing more and we are speaking about a great player and a friend from football. "So, I am glad to see him tomorrow but I hope he will get out from this game a little bit sad, because I hope we can win this game."

"It's going to be very difficult because it's a strong team, it's a team with a lot of talent and I think that tomorrow, we have a very difficult game ahead of us," the Montenegro international added. "With the arrival of Tuchel, they changed the system and now they are playing with three centre-backs, and I think they are now dominating more games. "They have had positive results since he came and we are expecting a difficult game tomorrow because they have a lot of talented young players. "They are offensively very good and we know it will be a very difficult game, but we are ready."
