Toni Kroos, a Real Madrid midfielder, has stated ahead of the game that facing Chelsea will be a difficult challenge at the moment for his team. He went on to say that Chelsea is the current UCL champion, and that despite Real Madrid's willingness to challenge them, they would not have requested Chelsea to play in the quarterfinals just yet.
He was quoted as saying the following in his own words:
"It couldn't be more difficult for them because they are the current UCL champions. There could hardly be a greater obstacle, but we must remain focused on ourselves."
"It's safe to say that nobody wanted PSG to make it to the last 16, and nobody wanted Chelsea to make it to the quarter-finals."
Both clubs met last season, with Chelsea coming out on top against their Spanish counterparts and going on to win the Premier League title against Manchester City in the process.
Things have changed significantly for both clubs since then, and many supporters are looking forward to the match as the date approaches.
