Azpilicueta makes demand from Chelsea ahead of Real Madrid clash
Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has urged the Blues to be at their best in order to have any chance of getting a good result against Real Madrid in the Champions League.
Chelsea will face Real Madrid in an away Champions League quarterfinal tie on Wednesday night.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of the match, the Spain defender said: “It is a unique opportunity, and only eight teams are here. It is special and difficult. This is a tie that will demand the most of us, from each one and as a team, because we play against the current champions.
“It is the third year in a row that we play against them. "They have a lot of experience.”
“All rivals must be treated with respect and humility. We know that Real Madrid are a club with a great history in the competition, and that’s why we need to be at our best.”
The kick-off time for the match is 8 p.m.
