Having analysed the first leg of our Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid in the days leading up to tonight’s decider at Stamford Bridge, Frank Lampard has identified a couple of key areas his Chelsea side must do better at if we are to complete a famous European comeback.

The Blues were beaten 2-0 in the Bernabeu last week, leaving us with an uphill challenge but far from an insurmountable one. The last two occasions we have returned to the Bridge for the second leg of a Champions League tie two goals behind, we have still progressed.

Lampard watched both legs of our meeting with Real this time last year before this tie started, and since the match in Madrid on Wednesday he has studied the game closely to see where his Blues can improve.

‘We had opportunities to score last week, but at the same time there were a lot of things we could have done better in that game,’ he said.

‘I felt that in-game, and I feel it even more having reviewed the game. There were things we wanted to do from the outset that we didn’t do well enough throughout the game.

‘That’s not just the physical side, it was our use of the ball. We can improve on that and we have to improve on that to have a chance of turning this tie around. We have worked on that and hopefully you see the fruits of that in the game.

‘I am clear with the players with that. I know they have the capacity to give this a good go, but we must get our game right and be better than we were last week.’
