El Pocho bagged a brace in tonightâs 3-1 win, fighting back from a Juan Mata opener to give the Partenopei a solid first leg lead.
âI expected a victory tonight and was confident,â revealed Lavezzi. âI think Chelsea are a strong side and it is not over yet.
âWe have a good advantage, but we need to go and take the initiative and score at least a goal in London to secure qualification to the next round.
âThe Coach told us to help out the team with our defensive movement. We all gave a hand at the back, because thatâs what we needed to have a great game. Iâd say we achieved it.â
