There were no surprises in the match between Real Madrid and Chelsea at the Bernabeu, the stronger team won with a score of 2-0. Two goals from Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio gave Los Blancos a big advantage before the Champions League quarter-final second leg at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking after the defeat to Real Madrid, coach Frank Lampard admitted Chelsea’s chances of coming upstream were very small. “The results are a reflection of what happened, but I just tell the players that special things can happen at Stamford Bridge,” he said. They are a very good team but we have to believe in our chances.”
Speaking more about the match, the English coach said: “We had three pretty good chances in the game: Joao in the early game, Raheem and Mason near the end. We weren’t able to capitalize on our chances, while they did a great job at it, that’s definitely the difference between the two teams.”
“Chelsea played very well without people. I am proud of the competitive spirit of the students. It was disappointing to let a set piece lead to a second goal. I don’t think with 10 they played better than us, it’s mental.”
With a 0-2 defeat in the first leg, Chelsea will have to play with more than their ability if they want to come upstream in the second leg. The Blues are currently going through a series of 4 consecutive matches without scoring in all competitions.
