Chelsea has been drawn to face Atlectico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 match billed for next year.
Atlectico Madrid currently sits second in the La Liga table, level on points with leaders Real Sociedad.
Despite being paired to play the Spanish side, Frank Lampard has allayed fears of possible elimination in the knockout phase.
The Chelsea boss had revealed that his players needed to belief in themselves if they must beat Atlectico Madrid and go on to win the much-coveted trophy.
Lampard said: “I think most people will say it’s the toughest draw that we could have had when you go on current form in La Liga, European experience, quality of team and play. Most people would say that.”
“But all draws are difficult in the Champions League. We have to have belief in ourselves. When that game comes round. We’re going to have to beat these sort of teams if you’re going to win the CL, so it is what it is.
“Any draw would be tough but if you look, they’re top of La Liga. I watched them knock Liverpool out last year, who are obviously a great team and have that experience and quality in the squad.
“I think most people who certainly have said they are one of the toughest teams we could have drawn on paper.
“But we’ll have to turn up and do our job and be confident we can beat them.”
