Here is what Thomas Tuchel told Chelsea Players ahead of Lille UCL Clash.
Although their first leg was a swift success, Tuchel is not yet convinced that this is worth holding onto, to warrant them to feel relaxed and probably loose the game.
He said that a 2:0 score line is nothing to hold onto as this can easily get cancelled if their opponents are too serious to get a win.
Speaking before the match, Tuchel sent a message to his teammates to make sure they are ready and fully committed to the match before it gets started.
Speaking on the upcoming match Tuchel said;
“To be honest, I think they played well at Stamford Bridge. They were very physical, attacked high up the pitch.
“It was impressive. They had a good pressing game, were very brave, and had the mentality they had nothing to lose.”
“It’s half time right now. No match is decided by a 2-0 scoreline. The second half is tomorrow and we’ll have to produce another top performance.
“I think Lille played on Friday so they’ve had a good amount of time to recover. That is why we have to be ready physically and mentally for a tough game.”
