Kroos trains at Real Madrid
After overcoming Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid faced another big obstacle named Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-finals. Toni Kroos admits, this is a real setback for the Blues.
Metro quotes the German midfielder:
“They are the defending Champions League champions at the moment, so there couldn’t be a more difficult draw.”
“There can hardly be a bigger obstacle, but we have to focus on ourselves and if we play well we can do a lot.”
“We have to give our best, because that’s what we have to do to get to the semi-finals. Maybe nobody wants to meet PSG in the round of 16, and nobody wants to face Chelsea in the quarter-finals.”
“But that’s the way things are, and we need to accept it.”
Of course, Kroos has absolutely reason to be worried when facing Chelsea, because it is the Blues who knocked Real Madrid out of the Champions League last season with an unbeaten record in both legs.
At the moment, despite facing a serious crisis, coach Thomas Tuchel’s teachers and students still maintain an impressive performance, they have only lost one match against Liverpool on penalties, after 14 the latest debut in all arenas.
