CECH ``REALISTIC'' OVER CHELSEA'S HOPES

CECH ``REALISTIC'' OVER CHELSEA'S HOPES

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech admitted his side's hopes of retaining the Champions League are hanging by a thread after they crashed to a 3-0 Group E defeat to Juventus in Turin.

Goals from Fabio Quagliarella, Arturo Vidal and Sebastian Giovinco earned Juventus a victory which means they only need a point from their final game against already-qualified Shakhtar Donetsk to go through at Chelsea's expense.

Cech told ITV Sport: ``I think we showed much better spirit than in the last games.

``We did well and created some chances but in such an important game if you create chances you have to take them and that was the difference.

``They went ahead with a lucky deflection and the second goal was a deflection as well but they put on a very good performance and they did really well.

``We said before the game we had our destiny in our own hands but not any more. Now we have to do our bit to win our last game and hope destiny will be kind to us.

``Being realistic, Juventus played really well and they need a point. Shakhtar are already qualified so they don't need to take a chance on the result.

``It is a very sad moment because last season the Champions League was like a dream. I wouldn't say it's a nightmare but it's a huge disappointment.''
