‘They are too stronger’ — Tuchel reveals one team he doesn’t want to face in the quarter-finals
Chelsea produced a good performance to beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 tie at Stamford Bridge.
For the first time in 7 years, Chelsea are now through to the quarter-final stage of the Champions League, as the Blues recorded a 3-0 aggregate victory over Atletico Madrid in the round of 16.
It was a great game of football from the Blues, who now have former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel in charge of the club.
However, Tuchel has maintained that he’s not ready to meet PSG yet, as he mentioned his former club as the number one side he wants to avoid.
Asked if he wants to face PSG in the quarter-final, Tuchel told RMC Sport after Chelsea’s win over Atletico: “I’m not sure!
“They are very strong, I know them well but we have to wait.”
