For Chelsea, this year’s Champions League campaign came to a juddering halt much sooner than they might have liked.

Last season’s defending champions were sent packing by Saturday’s eventual winners Real Madrid in the quarter-finals after a dramatic two-legged showdown, but it’s not all doom and gloom for Thomas Tuchel’s men when it comes to continental matters.
