Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confessed that his team's chances of advancing to the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night are slim.
Last week, Chelsea lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the first leg at Stamford Bridge.
Tuchel believes that the second leg tie in Spain will be difficult due to the competition, opponent, and venue.
Chelsea will play after defeating Southampton 6-0 in a Premier League match last weekend, while Real Madrid overcame Getafe 2-0 in LaLiga.
At his pre-match press conference on Monday, Chelsea's odds of winning the tie were "not the best," considering the first game's results, the competition, the opponent, and the stadium. We never regulate our input based on the likelihood of a positive outcome: "It's unlikely, but it's worth trying, and trying means that we'll play to our full potential." This is what it is; it is a major event. "
