Real Madrid coach Zidane on facing Chelsea in Champions League semi-final

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has termed Chelsea as a 'very tough' opponent ahead of their Champions League semi-final two-legged tie. 

Madrid advanced to the semis of the Champions League after eliminating Liverpool 3-1 on aggregate while Chelsea booked a spot following a 2-1 victory on aggregate against FC Porto. The two teams will now square it for a spot in the final and Zidane doesn't want the Champions League to be a distraction as they are also eyeing the LaLiga title. 

"We’ve got a number of La Liga games to play before we face Chelsea, but it’s going to be a very tough tie," said Zidane.

"I’m not going to say anything. We’re alive in both competitions, but we haven’t won anything yet. We’ve had tough moments during the season, of course. But we’re still alive. We just have to carry on in this vein."

"We’ve finished this game in much better physical shape than against Barcelona. This week we’ve had to put a tremendous shift in and we come away from these three games feeling very happy."

The Los Blancos are currently second on the log with 66 points, one behind leaders Atletico Madrid.
