  • Cesar Azpilicueta has praised the team's solid performance in the first leg.
  • Azpi says the team has much further to go than just this result.
  • The captain has also praised the quality of competition within the squad.

“That was obviously a tight game, there were not a lot of chances,” Azpilicueta toold the club's official website.

“We knew we had to make the most of them because they are very solid, they defend together, it is not easy. We had to defend together as a team and we did a solid team performance, but there is still a lot to do.

“We cannot get too carried away about this result. It’s positive, we are in a good dynamic, but we know that as a team we can still go further.

“We have an amazing squad with the quality, number of players, competition inside of the team, so let’s go and keep progressing and improving.”

Chelsea's 1-0 away win had put them in an excellent position to qualify for the next round but it is hardly an insurmountable lead.

The Blues will miss both Jorginho and Mason Mount during the next game due to suspensions and will have a task on their hands to get the result.
