Petr Cech concedes Juventus “deserved to win” against Chelsea and qualification is now in the Italians’ hands.
“We showed much better spirit than the last games,” the goalkeeper said of the 3-0 defeat in Turin.
“The first half it was very difficult, we did well and created chances, but if you create a chance you need to take it. That was the difference.
“They went ahead with a lucky deflection, the second goal was another deflection but they did very well and deserved to win. We didn't cope very well.
“We said before the game that we have our destiny in our hands, not any more. Now we need to do our bit, we need to win our last game and hope our fate is kind.
“Being realistic Juventus played very well and they need a point and Shakhtar are already through. It is a very sad moment.”
Chelsea won the Champions League much to the surprise of many last season, but could go out in the first round.
“Last season the Champions League was like a dream, now this is a like …not a nightmare, just very disappointing.”
