Chelsea vs Real Madrid: We showed it last year – Alonso fires back at Kroos


Chelsea defender, Marcos Alonso has hit back at Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos after the Germany international claimed that his team could beat Thomas Tuchel’s side in the Champions League quarter-final if they took care of their errors.

Earlier this month, Kroos told Diario AS that Real Madrid could eliminate Champions League holders Chelsea if they took care of their errors.

Real Madrid and Chelsea will clash in the Champions League last-8 next month for a place in the last-4.

Last season, the Los Blancos lost to Chelsea in the semi-finals of the competition.

Speaking on Kroos’ claims, Alonso fired a warning to Real Madrid by referring to the two sides’ meeting last season.

“We already showed last year what we are capable of. It is a different year, another moment, but we are facing two great teams, and we will try to give everything to reach the semi-finals,” Alonso was quoted by Football London as saying.

He added, “I think there are no favourites. At this point, any team is complicated, and it will be a beautiful and difficult tie for sure. Let us leave it there, at 50% chance for each.”
