Chelsea captain Azpilicueta wants second Champions League winners medal

Cesar Azpilicueta wants to win the Champions League with Chelsea again.

The Spaniard helped Chelsea claim their only Champions League in the 2012 final win over Bayern Munich.

"When I joined Chelsea in 2012 after the club had won the Champions League, of course it was my aim to repeat that," Azpilicueta said ahead of the last-16 first leg against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

"It's something that sticks inside and every year when the chance comes, we want to go further. It's the biggest competition in Europe so we know it's very tough and as a group we have to be ready for the challenge.

"For me, it's something that's in me and hopefully we can start from tomorrow by having a good game, a good result and then we'll see how far we can go."
