Lampard assesses Chelsea’s opponents in the Champions League round of 16

Blue got a very difficult opponent.

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard has summed up the draw for the Champions League round of 16. In the first stage of the Champions League playoffs, the Blue will play against Atletico Madrid.

Atlético is one of the most difficult options given their experience in European competition. On the other hand, we understand that in the playoffs there are not and cannot be weak opponents. If we want to win the Champions League, we must beat any team. That’s all.

Atletico are now leading the Spanish league, and they knocked Liverpool out of the Champions League last season. It will be very difficult for us, but we must believe in ourselves and believe that we are able to win, ” Lampard said.
