Chelsea crashed out of the Champions League on Wednesday night following a 4-1 aggregate loss to Barcelona.
Despite a good performance by Chelsea, the Blues lost 3-0 at the Nou Camp after Barcelona capitalized on individual errors of the players.
Azpilicueta revealed after the game that Chelsea had enough chances but Barcelona punished our mistakes.
“I thought we had a lot of chances but a couple of mistakes we made, they punished us,” said Azpilicueta.
“We knew we had to score to get at least extra-time. We had enough chances to make it happen, but they punished our mistakes with three goals.
“We knew Messi is a very good player and he can make the difference at any point. We knew it but we couldn’t stop it.
“The team fought really hard. We will analyse and focus.
“The next game is the FA Cup, we will try to get through to the semi-finals and get back into the top four in the Premier League.”
