‘The Worst First Half I’ve Ever Seen’: Tuchel Blasts Chelsea Performances Against Real Madrid

Thomas Tuchel was brutally honest after Chelsea’s 1-3 loss to Real Madrid tonight. He told BT Sport after the game: “It’s a heavy loss. It was one of the worst first half’s that I’ve seen at Stamford Bridge, You cannot play like this. Far, far, far from our standards.

“How, when, where we pass, attacking game, intensity in challenges, desire, close spaces. No. First half was so far from any standards we set”

“If you have this goal [Kai Havertz’s], you get the energy back. Second half, 16 shots to 1. But if you kill the game yourself, it’s harder and harder. We had chances to make it 3-2, which could be crucial, but not today.”

Chelsea will face Madrid in the second leg on April 12 and have a trip to Southampton this weekend.
