Thomas Tuchel has left front three from Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Mason Mount for tonight’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge. Tuchel has kept Werner loyal after his blatant miss in the first leg in Spain last week. The only question is whether Havertz or Werner will take the lead. Cesar Azpilicueta starts as right-back and the rest of the team is as expected. Toni Rudiger starts and will wear a protective mask after a facial injury in the first leg. He is in back three with Thiago Silva and Andreas Christensen.
Chelsea XI: Mendy; Christensen, Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Werner, Mount; Havertz.
Real madrid captain of Madrid, Sergio Ramos and Eden Hazard, will start tonight in the semi-final of the Champions League against Chelsea. Ramos has been out with a calf problem for over a month, but the Real captain has traveled to London and Zinedine Zidane confirmed he was ready to return in the second leg of their semi-final against Chelsea. Former Chelsea star Hazard is also fit to start back at Stamford Bridge, on the offensive with Vinicius Jr and Karim Benzema.
Real Madrid XI: (4-3-3) Courtois; Nacho, Ramos, Militao, Mendy; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric; Vinicius, Benzema, Hazard
