Chelsea boss Frank Lampard attempted to rouse his players after their 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid by reminding them the tie is far from over when they host the Spanish giants at Stamford Bridge next week.
“The disappointing thing is you give away a set-piece and switch off for the second goal with ten men,” he said.
“I don’t think with 10 men they carved us open. That was due to the spirit.
“And I think at that part of the game we had our chances, three pretty good chances. Joao [Felix] early, Raheem [Sterling], Mason [Mount] near the end.
“So there’s some good things, but the result is a reality.
“I just said to the players, special things can happen at Stamford Bridge,” he said.
“They’re a good team, but we have to believe.”
