Antonio Conte: This is how I'm preparing the game against Real Madrid


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte admits it is not easy to prepare back-to-back pre-season friendlies as his side prepares to face Real Madrid at the Michigan Stadium.

The Blues battled past Liverpool two days ago to register an important win ahead of the new season.

And they will be back in action tonight when they face Zinedine Zidane's squad in what will be their penultimate pre-season friendly of the new season.

"It's not easy to prepare another game only two days after Liverpool," Conte told reporters.

"It was a physical game between two teams that compete, that fought to win the game.

"Now after two-and-a-half days it's not easy to prepare, we only had one session this morning to prepare and we know that in pre-season we have to work.

"I hope tomorrow to use our minds, when you are tired it's important to use your head. It's important to stay concentrated to play good football.

"To improve with and without the ball, I hope to see this but I know after two days it is very tough to play these type of games."
