Chelsea and Real Madrid await Friday’s Quarter Final draw following comfortable home victories last night.
Real Madrid, barring a truly epic slip beyond imaginable, had already qualified for the quarter final stage after destroying Schalke 04 6-1 in Gelsenkirchen three weeks ago.
Chelsea on the other hand had a more difficult tie, going into their second-leg against Galatasary at Stamford Bridge with the scores even at 1-1. However, the Blues on the night were comfortable throughout and the 2-0 scoreline arguably flattered the visitors.
After the games had finished, both teams’ players stood in front of the cameras and said that they have no opposition preference in Friday’s draw – yet, that’s is not what Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo are reporting.
The current Chelsea boss didn’t take to the Real Madrid politics whilst in the Spanish capital, and during his final season, his decision to drop Iker Casillas resulted in a number of conflictions.
The presumed feud has continued on this season, with Mourinho telling the press of some of his former players’ obsessions with lining-up in front of the mirror before kick-off. His comments caused a reaction, and one which wasn’t particularly pleasant.
Mundo Deportivo go on to name the likes of Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas and most notably Cristiano Ronaldo as the leading players hoping for a reunion with their former boss – and if their wish comes true, we can all expect there to be fireworks.
