Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel: “It was a very good performance. We wanted to stay patient but we didn’t want to fall asleep – that was the challenge.” he added. “The team did very well. It’s so tough to score goals and create chances but we scored and created so much. Full credit, it was an amazing performance and a fantastic result.”
Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri: “We are disappointed with the four goals we conceded but our objective, which was qualification, has been achieved. There were times when we lost possession trying to get forward immediately when we had to keep the ball more.” he added. “In Turin, we were attentive to the defensive aspect of our game for 90 minutes, but today we only did it for 45, then gave up. We know what our strengths and weaknesses are. Even after evenings like this, we will improve.”
