Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has gotten his Champions League wish as Chelsea will face Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 in the first-leg in Spain and held Liverpool to a goalless draw in the second-leg in Anfield.

Fixture details will be announced in due course. Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City will meet in the other semi-final clash.

Speaking after Chelsea secured our semi-final place, Tuchel admitted he would prefer to face Real Madrid and not Liverpool.

Tuchel said: “In general I like not to play against teams from your same league in the Champions League as it gives more of a feeling of a European competition but that is the only thing. The game is far from over but I will watch it for sure.

“Everything is possible. Liverpool are very strong at home so we take what we get. It is a good situation for us.”
