Conte unfazed as Chelsea draw with Atletico Madrid to finish second in Group C

Antonio Conte has warned whoever they draw in the knockout stages of the Champions League to be wary of his Chelsea side.

The Blues advanced to the last 16 after they drew 1-1 with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.

Saul Niguez gave Atleti a surprise lead early in the second-half.

But an Eden Hazard-inspired Chelsea pushed for an equaliser, which they eventually found after the Belgian's strike deflected off Stefan Savic.

Alvaro Morata and Wilian failed to convert late chances to win the game.

Despite finishing behind Roma in Group C because of the result, Conte was pleased with the performance.

"We tried to play our game and win. In the first half we tried to push, we created many chances to score and we conceded a goal from a corner," said Conte.

"When you play this way and create so much you must be satisfied.

"Our opponent won't be happy to play against us."
