Last night, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea advanced convincingly against the ferocious Atletico Madrid, whom they were previously underdogs against in the Round of 16.
Hakim Ziyech scored the game’s first goal, ending a goal drought that had lasted since October.
The second goal was scored by a late substitute, Emerson Pamieri, who has not had many chances to play on the field since Tuchel’s arrival.
Chelsea surprised everyone by defeating the current Laliga league leaders both at home and away, ensuring Tuchel’s unbeaten run in all competitions continues.
However, in today’s Champions League Quarter-Finals Draw, Chelsea was paired against FC Porto in the next round of the competition. Porto is also regarded as a strong team by many, having beaten Juventus in the previous round despite being written off by many.
Thomas Tuchel has now spoken about the draw, and the German international believes his team can play any of the remaining seven teams in the competition.
He believes that the fact that his team was able to survive a tough team justifies how far they have come.
