“We had very strong for periods, for example for the first 10 minutes, but we also have in the same game these periods where it’s totally gone from one second to another. Easy ball losses and a lack of fluidity and bad decisions, and then we recover from it and we have strong phases again,” Tuchel said after the game.
“This is a bit the story at the moment, but there are very good things in it. If we can maybe keep it up on that level and then make the good minutes longer and a bit more consistent, this is maybe the next step.
“It was a very well-prepared opponent today. They were very aggressive, they were very physical so it was necessary to step up and be mentally tough and defensively super solid, and this is what we did. We did not allow them chances and it gave us a good feeling throughout the whole match.”
The Blues will hope to complete the job against Lille when they travel to France for the return leg next month.
