Chelsea will lock horns with Real Madrid at the Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, hoping to pick up a positive result and proceed into the finals of the UEFA Champions League. The Blues recorded an impressive 2-0 win against Fulham on Saturday, whereas Los Blancos recorded a similar 2-0 victory over Osasuna in the La Liga.

Thomas Tuchel will probably opt for the 3-4-3 formation with a few tweaks from the last game. Cesar Azpilicueta might get the nod over Andreas Christensen, whereas Jorginho looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

Edouard Mendy will start in between the sticks for the upcoming home encounter. The Senegalese shot-stopper will hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Wednesday.

Antonio Rudiger should be fit to start in midweek, as stated by Thomas Tuchel.

“Toni got injured in the last minute of the Madrid game. I am quite positive for (him being available) for Wednesday.” – The German tactician revealed.

As a result, Thiago Silva is expected to start at the heart of the Blues’ backline, whereas Antonio Rudiger might feature at the left centre-back spot. Cesar Azpilicueta will fulfil the right centre-back position.

However, their prime objective will be to keep Karim Benzema quiet throughout the ninety minutes.

Midfield

N’Golo Kante and Jorginho will fulfil the holding midfield positions, with the former occupying a more central role. The pair would be looking to dominate the midfield proceedings.

However, Thomas Tuchel revealed that Mateo Kovacic had a little ‘setback’ in training.

“Now we have a little setback with him.” – Tuchel stated.

“I don’t want to be too negative. Let’s see how he feels tomorrow.”

Ben Chilwell will feature at the left wing-back position, whereas Reece James will fill in on the other flank as the right wing-back.

Attack

Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic will slot into the attacking midfield roles. The duo would be determined to set up some clear cut goal-scoring chances for the front-men.

Kai Havertz will lead the line for the home side against Real Madrid. The German international bagged a brace against Fulham last week, and he’ll be determined to repeat more of the same and impress against Zinedine Zidane’s men.

Timo Werner might come on to make a cameo appearance in the second forty-five minutes.
