After qualifying for last 16 as second in Group A behind AS Roma, Antonio Conte claims the biggest obstacles for Chelsea Champions League glory are not PSG or Barcelona but Premier League:
“With five teams to go through to the next round means the level of this league is very high,” the Blues boss said speaking ahead of Liverpool‘s bid to progress on tonight and with Manchester City, United and Spurs already confirmed group winners.
“Don’t forget here this season is very tough. You have to play a lot of games, but when you arrive at the final stage to play for quarter-finals, semi-finals the English teams have a lot of games in their legs. For this reason.”
The Italian coach is not very positive about his side chances to success in the major European competitions for clubs:
“I think it could be problematic to win the Champions League.“
