Champions League news : Real Marid ? Chelsea (Champions League semi-final first leg) 1-1

Chelsea vs real madrid

Team News:

    • Mateo Kovacic is Chelsea’s only injury concern for the trip to Madrid, with the Croat suffering with a thigh issue.
    • Kai Havertz made lead the charge with Timo Werner dropping deeper and Christian Pulisic making way for the young German from the side that started against West Ham.
    • Reece James or Callum Hudson-Odoi are expected to feature at right wing-back for the Blues.
      • Dani Carvajal started his first match since February in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Real Betis and is set to feature at right-back.
      • There are no doubts over Toni Kroos, Zinedine Zidane has confirmed, but Ferland Mendy misses the first leg with Nacho and Marcelo competing to deputise.
      • Sergio Ramos is hopeful of a return to action in midweek, however it may be that he isn’t available until the second leg.
      • Lucas Vazquez and Federico Valverde miss the welcome of Chelsea due to injury and COVID-19, respectively.
      • Eden Hazard came off the bench on Saturday and will hope to face his former employers here.

    FootballBetExpert Predictions

  • Real Madrid haven’t lost a competitive match since February 17 games ago, but they have won just one of their last four outings. A 0-0 draw with Real Betis on Saturday ended a five-game home winning streak, which they’ll look to correct on Tuesday.
  • A 1-0 win over West Ham on Saturday means Chelsea have not conceded in three matches, a run they’ll seek to continue at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano this week. The Blues have conceded just one goal in their last seven games away from Stamford Bridge as they look to book a Champions League final spot.
