Conte: Juventus ‘killed’ Spurs


Antonio Conte claims Juventus ‘killed’ Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League but notes Chelsea lack the ‘experience’ to do such a thing at Barcelona.

Juve overturned two away goals to beat Spurs 2-1 at Wembley and reach the quarter-finals, while Chelsea find themselves in a similar position, having drawn 1-1 with Barcelona on home soil in the first leg.

“Don’t forget you are talking about a team with many players with great experience,” Conte said of his former club, reports The Daily Mail.

“We don’t have this experience and you have to build this experience over the years.

“Juventus showed great resilience, they suffered a lot and in the right mind they killed Tottenham.

“But I repeat: in the team there are many players with great experience and many players who won the Champions League in the past or played in a final of the Champions League.


“Experience is always important. This Chelsea team has not got great experience, not many players with great experience, because this team lost a lot of old players with great experience.

“Now we have many players who need experience. Andreas Christensen, Tiemoue Bakayoko. We have to work as a team and try to be ready.

“We must be prepared to suffer in this type of game, because when you play against this type of team, one of the best teams in the world, you must be prepared to suffer. It won’t be easy.”
