“We have so many new formats, with a Nations League as well, it is just more and more games. It’s not quality, it’s just more games. At the same time, we have just three substitutes in the Premier League, which is the toughest competition.

“The strategy is to be ourselves. The higher you climb, the more you rely on your strengths that make you comfortable. Hopefully, we do not overthink it, and the challenge is to be the best version of ourselves for 90 minutesĀ  in Madrid.” Tuchel added.
