Real Madrid are in pole position to qualify for the semi finals of this season UEFA Champions League after a 3 – 1 away win over Chelsea. Both coaches made some changes over the weekend in their respective league matches and still come up with impressive victories.
Here is the team news for both teams:
Eder Militao’s booking in the first leg of the tie means he will miss the encounter at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Nacho Fernandez is the ideal replacement and is quite certain to make the starting XI.
Furthermore, Ancelotti has confirmed the absence of former Chelsea star Eden Hazard who is still recovering from an ankle surgery.
Romelu Lukaku is the main doubt for Thomas Tuchel as he missed the trip to St. Mary’s with an injury. This boosts the chances of two-goal hero Timo Werner.
Cesar Azpilicueta has tested positive for Covid-19 and will most likely not take part unless he receives a negative test.
Real Madrid XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Nacho, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius.
Chelsea XI: Mendy; Chalobah, Silva, Rudiger; James, Kante, Kovacic, Alonso; Havertz, Werner, Mount.
