Thomas Tuchel: Make or break week for Chelsea

UEFA Championship

Chelsea Thomas Tuchel:

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes that the coming week is a make-or-break one for the defending champions as they take on Real Madrid in the second leg at the Bernabeu. They were comprehensively beaten by the 13-time champions on their home patch with Karim Benzema scoring a hattrick. They are aiming to only become the second team to overcome a two-goal home deficit in the history of the Champions League. Chelsea bounced back from their defeat in the Champions League by beating Southampton 6-0 on the weekend.

“We need nothing else other than a fantastic script,” Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel said. “The task and challenge are incredibly hard and against who we play and where we play. We’re allowed to dream, it’s sometimes important to imagine things and dream about them. It will not shift the focus, we will support our team, and we will try hard. It’s sports, and it’s a game, and that’s the beauty of the game, that everything is possible always.”

“First of all, we wanted it more physical but we did not work hard or intense enough in the first match,” he added. “Second of all, we face a huge disadvantage in terms of physicality because Real Madrid has a whole year with five changes and we play the most demanding league, we play the most matches throughout the season and throughout 2022 so it is not always easy to play a physical game. We are a team that needs the physicality, the sharpness, the commitment, and the investment to be a special team. We could not implement that enough in the last match. This was also due to their quality, their capacity to slow the game down, to control the match by ball possession.”
