What did Tuchel said when asked if he’s worry over his two key players who will be out of Atletico Clash?


‘Yeah, a little bit, of cource, ‘

Two key players for us. Especially Mason Mount for his offensive skills, his power offensive-wise to break the lines with dribbling and shots.

“They were important players so far and we have a group which we compete with in this competition and so now is the challenge to adapt and find solutions because it’s obvious we need to play without those two guys.

What did Tuchel said about Thiago Silva and Tammy Abraham?

‘We also need to play without Thiago Silva and also without Tammy Abraham.

No more injuries, so we miss four players that make the selection easy.

We have a clear idea of what we are to do and how we would create chances. But we are aware that Atletico Madrid is a team that gives away the fewest chances.

‘it’s very likely we have to be calm and play with intensity at the same time. Keeping this level constantly going is the key for tomorrow's match.
