Conte: ‘Tough group stage for Chelsea’

Antonio Conte says Chelsea’s Champions League group, which includes Roma, is “tough”.

The English champions were yesterday drawn against the Giallorossi, as well as Spanish side Atletico Madrid and Qarabag.

“It’s a tough group stage,” Conte admitted in his Press conference today.

“But, when you play this type of competition, you must be prepared to face the best teams in Europe.

“In this moment it’s very difficult to tell if it’s a good or bad group stage. It’s important to play those games very well and try and do our best.”
