Chelsea Boss Tuchel Says He Prefers Liverpool To Real Madrid

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has suggested that his preference is to face Real Madrid instead of Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals.

The London side progressed in the competition on Tuesday night after a 2-1 aggregate win over Porto.

They will now meet either Real Madrid or Liverpool in the semi-final.

And, asked whether he'd rather avoid Jurgen Klopp's side in the last four, Tuchel said: “I don't wish for anything but in general.

“I like it in the Champions League not to play against teams from your own league because it gives it a bit more the feeling of European competition, but that's the only thing.

“Whoever deserves it, I think the game is far from over but I will watch it for sure and it's a pleasure to watch it as a semi-finalist.

“Like i said it's a great achievement and tomorrow we will watch these games.

“I think that nothing is decided yet and everything is possible, Liverpool is very strong at home, let's see, the Premier League is strong, so we take what we get, it's a good situation for us.”
