Despite a disappointing Premier League campaign, Chelsea are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

A 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid in the first-leg of the quarter final has left progression to the semi-finals a difficult task for the Blues, but Chelsea centre-back Wesley Fofana is confident the Blues can turn the deficit around.

Fofana insists Chelsea have won the Champions League before during a difficult season and believes the Blues can do it again this season.

Fofana told Telefoot: “Chelsea have already done it after a difficult season before, with a new coach arriving.

“They won it in 2021. So I think it’s possible, it’s in the club’s DNA. We’ve had a bad season, we know that. Now it’s up to us to show what we’re capable of. There is quality in this squad.”
