Chelsea vs Real Madrid

Chelsea are of course back in Champions League action on Wednesday evening.

The Blues are set to play host to Real Madrid in the second of two Champions League semi-final ties.

And it is Chelsea who head into proceedings on Wednesday holding the advantage over Champions League specialists, Madrid.

Christian Pulisic would fire the Londoners into the lead last time out:

And though Karim Benzema would go on to pull a goal back for Real, Chelsea obviously still have their away goal – meaning they can draw 0-0 on Wednesday and still secure a spot in the final.

THUNDEROUS FINISH! ⚡️

Thomas Tuchel on Antonio Rudiger and Mateo Kovacic

Ahead of Wednesday’s game, Thomas Tuchel would hold his latest pre-match press conference on Tuesday.

The German discussed a number of topics in the presser, including injury news.

Antonio Rudiger, who missed out on the Blues’ win over Fulham at the weekend, is expected to play with a mask against Madrid, with Mateo Kovacic the only player out of the second leg:

Tuchel confirms only Kovacic is out unless there’s an injury in training after the press conference: “Mateo will not be in the squad and I think Toni will play with a mask.” #CFC #UCL
