CHELSEA employer Thomas Tuchel tonight became the first supervisor in Champions League history to prevent defeat in his very first 5 games versus Genuine Madrid.
But the German came away annoyed with his side’s performance just earning a 1-1 draw.
The Blues moved quickly out the blocks, creating exceptional chances – most especially spurned by Timo Werner.
They did handle to take a 14th minute lead through Christian Pulisic, just to be pegged back by an outstanding Karim Benzema strike on the half hour.
Per Opta, the outcome means that Tuchel ‘has actually faced Genuine Madrid more often without losing in the UEFA Champions League than versus any other challenger’.
And he is the only gaffer to have ever prevented defeat in his very first five video games in the competitors versus the Spanish giants.
But still, the 47-year-old desired more.
He told BT Sport: “We began the video game really very well, with a lot of nerve and quality. We deserved to win the first half, we had possibilities.
” Unfortunately they scored from a set-piece and they had absolutely nothing else, we didn’t enable any possibilities.
” It was a frustrating score at half time. We needed to remain calm and not lose self-confidence.
