Chelsea welcome Spanish giants Real Madrid to Stamford Bridge tonight in a crucial Champions League semi final second leg fixture. The winner would face Man City in the Istanbul final. The Etihad outfit saw off Paris St-Germain in thrilling style to reach the showpiece.
The tie is level 1-1 from the first leg, although the Blues do have an away goal to their advantage. Going by what we saw in the first leg, this clash promises to be a cracker.
Ahead of this crucial Matchup, the Chelsea players worked hard at the Cobham Training center in Surrey, as they look to reach their first UCL final since 2012.

Rudiger trained with the squad albeit with a mask, and is available for selection. Mount is also fit, as is Thiago Silva and N’golo Kante, but the match comes too soon for Matteo Kovacic. There’s a chance that Olivier Giroud would play a part at Stamford Bridge.
Christian Pulisic who scored the only goal for Chelsea also took part, and would be looking to make another mark when a ball is kicked in West London tonight.
Under Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea have been a solid side defensively, racking up clean sheets regularly and thwarting opposition attacks. In the first leg against Real Madrid, the Blues dominated the opening half hour and could have been 3 goals up had they been more clinical. They’d to be more potent tonight if they are to knockout the Los Blancos.
