#PLStories- #CesarAzpilicueta does not think the tie against Atletico Madrid is over yet #ChelseaFC

Cesar Azpilicueta

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta is refusing to get too far ahead of himself after helping the Blues defeat Atletico Madrid 1-0 in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday evening. Although the Blues have a crucial one-goal advantage ahead of the second-leg at Stamford Bridge next month, Azpilicueta is remaining focused on the task that lies ahead, insisting there “is still a lot to do.”

Caesar Azpilicueta said: “That was obviously a tight game, there were not a lot of chances. 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. They are a solid team. We know that they have quality players, that they can make a lot of chances with different solutions and when it is a Champions League last 16 we know that every chance is very important.”

Whilst the Blues dominated proceedings against Atletico, the tie, according to Azpilicueta is far from over, with the Spaniard remaining adamant that a lot of work is still to be done if they are to progress to the quarter-finals of the competition.

Caesar Azpilicueta added: “Now we have it in our sights but there is still a lot to do and we fully believe that we are very capable of doing a good match again in the second leg. We play every game to win. We scored one away goal and it is important, we won, we didn’t concede any chances or goals. We’ve played the first leg and it’s a positive result, but we know there is lots to do and we work to improve and go through.”
