Chelsea boss Conte backing Serie A trio for Champion League final 16

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte hopes they can be joined by Serie A teams in the Champion League final 16.

Chelsea are through after their 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid last night.

Conte told Premium Sport: "I think the group was difficult, just think that Atletico, always protagonist in the past, is out.

"We did not deserve to go under, we did the game and created situations from the first minute.

"Juventus has always done well in the last few years and continues to do well in the Champions League, Roma deserved it, making a very good group. In Rome we had the worst game of the year, but for Italian football it is a good sign, now we have to wait and hope for Napoli."
