Following the qualification tonight, Tuchel revealed he would rather not have a semi final where he woul face an English team.

‘I don’t wish for nothing but in general I like it in Champions League not to play teams from your own league,’ the Chelsea manager told BT Sport.

‘Because it gets a bit more the feeling of the European competition but that’s the only thing.

‘Whover deserves it – I think the game is far from over – but I will watch it for sure.

‘It’s a pleasure to watch it as semi-finalists, a great achievement. Tomorrow we will watch these games and there is nothing decided yet. Everything is possible.

‘Liverpool is very strong at home, the Premier League is strong. We take what we get, it’s a good situation for us.’

Which actually means he would prefer to see Real Madrid through into the semis where they both can go head to head.

The last two times Thomas Tuchel faced Real Madrid as Dortmund manager all ended in 2-2 draws each leg.
