Thomas Tuchel: “It’s a completely different set-up – an away game with away fans against a strong Aston Villa side who play without any pressure. So it’s a very big challenge but we’re up for it. The supporters will have the same effect on their side.
“It’s an advantage for them, it makes things absolutely more difficult, no doubt about it, but it’s so much nicer and such a different game to play with spectators. We know that it increases the challenge, increases adversity but we are here to step up. We have it in our hands and we want to do it until the very end.”
