Champions League | Chelsea is a tough nut to crack

Chelsea does not give away a single centimeter. Fight for the last blade of grass and turn his half of the field into a desolate wasteland. Where Mendy and his people plant their flag, offensive football does not grow. How difficult it is going to be for Real Madrid or Liverpool to give chances to a team that has not only conceded only three goals in this entire Champions League, rather, it gives the impression that he has no intention of allowing himself to be shot even once on goal.

Against Porto in the Pizjuán, under the watchful eye of Lopetegui and with the dragons this time with all their offensive arsenal, the blues returned to lock the lock, no matter how much they could not avoid the goal of Taremi's earwig in the last breath . And be careful because those from London also have a lot of talent at the top. Success, and the resounding ones, by Thomas Tuchel.

The transformation that this team has undergone at the toughest moment of the season has been spectacular. Write down these three names for the semifinals: Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva and Rüdiger. There is a lot of talk about the offensive tridents, but not so much about the defensive ones, and this one is on the way to be able to give a title to Chelsea. Recital also that of Jorginho in the center of the field, this time accompanied by Kanté, who needed to take minutes, and by Pulisic upstairs, who grows as the games go by. Mount, who was almost elbowed in the face by Pepe in the first half, can make a great partnership with him when there is a '9' guaranteed to take advantage of his talent.
