“It is even more difficult if you have to earn a certain result, if you need to win with a minimum of two goals or better or maybe a three goal difference, that makes it almost impossible and very, very difficult but still it is worth trying,” Thomas Tuchel said when asked about Chelsea’s chances of knocking out Real Madrid.
“We need nothing else than a fantastic script that we want to be able to overcome this.
“The task is incredibly high and the challenge is incredibly high given the circumstances of the first leg and where we play and against whom we play and at what stage we play this kind of match.
“It’s always allowed to dream and it is sometimes important to imagine things and to dream about it but it will not shift the focus from the fact that we need to deliver and we need to be ready tomorrow.”
“We will arrive and try everything because it’s worth trying and from there we see and hopefully we have a match where belief grows within the match by our actions and hopefully we can fulfil our dream, live up to our dream.
“But realistically, we have to invest a lot and be at our very top level.”
Chelsea lost the first game at Stamford Bridge 3-1. There is no away goal rule anymore so the Blues need to win by a two-goal margin to proceed to extra time.
