The coach left the Danish defender one on one with Vini who shredded him

Andreas Christensen did not have a good game against Real Madrid for Chelsea. The Danish centre-back, who will play for Barcelona next season, was overrun by Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema.

However Thomas Tuchel sold him out by playing with three at the back with Reece James pushed up and unable to help the Danish defender.

The coach, at 2-1 down, decided to change things to help the team settle. He hooked Christensen and brought on Kovacic, going to four at the back. The coach recognised his mistake in the press conference. “Yes, it was my fault,” said Tuchel when asked about the mistake of not giving Christensen back up against Vinicius.
