Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel has talked confidently about beating Atletico 2-0 to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.
“We feel we deserved to win,” said the coach as per The Guardian.
“That is the most important thing. The most important thing is that we can give the guys feedback and tell them what they did in terms of quality and intensity,” he continued.
“The most important thing is to feel it, because then nobody has to convince you of anything. You just have to feel it.”
He went on to elaborate: “The guys feel a special bond during the game and performances and results like that give a certain edge and make the team more cohesive. It helps to achieve special things. It can only be achieved through results and experience.
“I’m pretty sure no one wants to play against us. We have a super tough challenge ahead of us because we are already among the top eight teams.
“It’s a big step, but we shouldn’t be afraid. We will take what is due to us and prepare in the best possible way.”
