Chelsea drew 1-1 against Real Madrid.
Tuchel feels that his team needed to take their chances to win.
“We started the game very very well, with a lot of courage and quality,” Thomas Tuchel told BT Sport after the Real Madrid draw.
“We deserved to win the first half, we had chances. Unfortunately, they scored from a set-piece and they had nothing else, we didn’t allow any chances.
“It was a disappointing score at half time. We had to stay calm and not lose confidence. The second half was very tactical, you could feel that we are a bit tired. We only had a few days to recover from another tough away game. We have to live with 1-1.
“The goal was well deserved and we should have scored at least one more. We conceded more or less out of nothing and that can always happen against individual quality.”
Chelsea scored an important away goal but failed to convert more chances to make the second leg a bit more comfortable.
Next Wednesday, the Blues will welcome Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge, with the tie still in the balance.
