During the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal draw, Christian Pulisic expressed enthusiasm about facing Real Madrid. He conveyed a positive message to his teammates. After sustaining an injury in January, Christian Pulisic returned to the pitch. He played against his former club, Borussia Dortmund. He has since made two substitute appearances for Chelsea.
Pulisic’s recent positive performances have raised hopes that he could regain his form ahead of the game against Real Madrid. Chelsea will need to perform at their peak to defeat the formidable Spanish team.
According to reports, Chelsea is currently ranked seventh among the favorites to win the championship. Meanwhile Manchester City, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid occupies the top three spots as the frontrunners to reach the Champions League final in Istanbul.
What did Pulisic say of their UCL encounter against Real Madrid?
Pulisic pointed out that Chelsea faced a similar situation last season when Tuchel took over from Lampard. But they still managed to overcome tough opponents like Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. They ended up winning the championship by defeating Manchester City in the final. He remains optimistic about their chances this season despite the odds.
Pulisic recently made a statement regarding the Champions League draw:
“No. Are we going to have big fights, tough battles, and big teams that we’re going to play against to get there? 100%, but we’re ready for it, and we’re excited by the challenge.”
Although there have been uncertainties, it is heartening to see Pulisic’s confidence in his ability to play against Real Madrid. As a vital player for the Blues, he is expected to have a significant impact, and we hope he regains his rhythm before the game. If Mykhaylo Mudryk is suspended for the second match, Potter can choose to field either Pulisic or Raheem Sterling on the left wing.
