Chelsea beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 match last night.
The Blues were carrying a 1-0 lead going into the match and were pitch perfect with the execution of their game plan.
Thomas Tuchel was understandably a very happy man after his team completed a 3-0 dismantling of the La Liga leaders and the Chelsea boss hailed his troops.
“A very good performance, unbelievable effort, unbelievable team effort, from the guys on the pitch, the guys on the bench and even the guys on the stands” Tuchel said. “I could really feel that we totally wanted it and we go through deservedly. It was a big win for us.”
On the counter-attack goal, Tuchel added: “We had the possibility to hurt them on the counter-attack.
“They pressed us very high in the first half but they opened up some spaces at the back of midfield that we could exploit and score a fantastic goal that gave us some confidence.
“After that, we could have made a second goal and in the second half we also suffered. It was another top performance with a deserved win.”
On where Chelsea can go from here, he concluded: “Quarter-final means there’s only four games – it’s a big step and feels excellent.”
