In the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, Real Madrid lock horns with Chelsea. The high-voltage encounter will be Real Madrid’s first UEFA game after the controversial announcement and subsequent suspension of European Super League. Both the teams look solid and there will certainly be a spicy contest on display. The match is slated to begin at 12:30 AM (IST).
Ferland Mendy and Sergio Ramos will be missing out on this game due to calf problems. Federico Valverde is Covid-19 positive and will also miss this game.
Mateo Kovacic will be missing out on this game due to a hamstring injury.
Real Madrid are coming on the back of a tumultuous ride off the field and an equal one on the field. As the European Super League has been suspended, Real Madrid can now focus on their football. They are coming on the back off a 0-0 draw against Real Betis and they will be on their toes. They had won their previous game before that. Karim Benzema had scored 2 goals and Alvaro Odriozola had scored one to ensure Real win by 3-0 against Cadiz.
The Blues are presently in the 4th position of the Premier League and under the stewardship of Thomas Tuchel, look a refurbished side. Chelsea recently reached the finals of the FA Cup after beating Manchester City and their confidence would be sky-high. In the Champions League quarter finals, Chelsea had beaten Porto by an aggregate of 2-1. Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell had scored 1 goal each in the first leg and had sealed off the win for the Blues. But they had lost their second leg 0-1 and would be a little vary of that.
