Bad news for Chelsea with Real Madrid set to welcome back three star players ahead of first-leg

Posted by

Real Madrid will welcome back three first-team players from injury ahead of their Champions League semi-final first-leg clash with Chelsea, according to El Chiringuito TV.

While Liverpool have endured unprecedented injury problems of their own this campaign, they must have felt as though their luck was turning as the Real Madrid players began to drop like flies ahead of their Champions League tie.

However, even a depleted Real Madrid side proved to be too strong for the Premier League champions, with Wednesday night’s 0-0 draw at Anfield seeing Los Blancos safely through to the next round, with an aggregate scoreline of 3-1.

Chelsea are next up to the Real Madrid chopping block, with Thomas Tuchel’s revamped Blues facing the Spanish giants for the very first time in the Champions League, with a place in the final on offer for the victor.

Real Madrid were just too good for Liverpool over the two legs,

Unfortunately for Chelsea, Real Madrid won’t be as battered and beaten as they were against Liverpool, with El Chiringuito TV reporting that Eden Hazard, Raphael Varane and Dani Carvajal will all return from injury in time.

Hazard will be desperately hoping that he can stay fit and begin to build some momentum ahead of his West London homecoming. A performance against his former side would be the perfect way to kick-start his Real Madrid career.

From Chelsea’s perspective, though, they’ll be hoping that Real Madrid encounter further selection problems between now and the first-leg, which is due to take place on Tuesday April 27th.

    1. ?. Couldn’t beat Liverpool either ????. Is there any team that Real Madrid hasn’t beaten at some time or the other???

  1. Real can not beat Chelsea no matter the kind of players they have,i believe Chelsea is confidence enughe to face them.

  2. That’s good real madrid is on trouble injury but we are still waiting for results and hope real win first leuge and second agains chelse

  3. Let me tell you nobody is perfect

    Any team can lost and can win so don’t underestimate any team

  4. Chelsea are not afraid of any one. Madrid will only chose 11 players on the pitch so we pray all of them are fit so they won’t be excuses. We are ready!!!??is is what we prayed for to avoid Liverpool.

  5. Weather hazard plays or not the better team will win that night…. But I hope is Madrid that will win….. I’m not a Madrid fan ooooooooo.. But I think they have superior quality in their team than chelsea……. But let’s not forget it’s football game and any thing can happen….

    I hope real Madrid will qualify for the final match because they have many experience players than Chelsea and they are very tough in champions league.

  7. I do agree that Real Madrid are the favourites if we go by history and their squad names, but I am left to wonder if Chelsea can’t give them a shock exit if we consider the current form of the team and the players determination prove a point in big games.Man City has just exited the FA cup in their tie with Chelsea when many people thought Chelsea were underdogs…Madrid is a big team but don’t forget what Chelsea can do!…I give both teams a 50/50 chance to progress to the finals

  8. chelsea that is now….is not that of lampard…right it’s tuchel ……soo i don’t expect real to win….chelsea to win 3goaaaaals first leg real 0
