The team, still Ancelotti (This morning he tested positive for coronavirus again.) is already focused on Wednesday’s match at Stamford Bridge, the first step to reach the Champions League semi-finals. To do this, they must avenge what happened before the Chelsea last season, when they were eliminated in the semifinals, dying on the shores of the Do Dragao final. “For us it is a revenge. We have players, desire and motivation to achieve the goal”, he said.

Finally, he praised the level shown by Courtois and Benzema in Balaídos: “They are very important. It would be better if Thibaut worked as little as possible, but it is a luxury to have him because he is a crack as a player and as a person. Karim has already shown the class and bravery he has in so many games. He is always there to show his face and face any adversity.”
