It indeed show how of a true quality both sides are with Luis Diaz making a huge confession on Chelsea star after the final.

Diaz was matched up against Reece James and this was the only reason his productivity in the game was reduced to a certain level.

The former Porto man didn’t hold back to admit that it wasn’t an easy task taking up Reece James.

“We are happy that we have another trophy and still fighting for two more but definitely Chelsea isn’t a team to over look,” Diaz said.

“They are as tough as we are and they played a high level football, their defense is good also.

“I have never faced a player like him, I mean the guy on my win, James. He is good in both angles, while they are attacking or defending.
