UEFA Champions League

Ahead of Chelsea's game with Real Madrid, check the 4 players that would play against their old club

Chelsea will face Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals, it has been confirmed. In the quarter-finals, Chelsea eliminated FC Porto, while Real Madrid eliminated Liverpool. If Thomas Tuchel's team meets Zinedane Zidane's team, however, four players will face their former club.

Eden Hazard, Mateo Kovacic, Thibaut Courtois, and Marcos Alonso are the four players mentioned above. Eden Hazard left Chelsea for Real Madrid two years ago, but his time in Spain has not been kind to him due to a slew of injuries. 

Mateo Kovacic joined Chelsea for a fee of €40 million, and in less than three seasons at Stamford Bridge, he has won the club's player of the season award.

Marcos Alonso's Real Madrid career was not particularly illustrious; he graduated from the Real Madrid academy before moving to Fiorentina and then Chelsea FC. Thibaut Courtois, who won four trophies with the Blues before joining the Los Blancos, is the final player on this list. Before Eduoard Mendy arrived, his departure made room for Kepa Arrizabalaga to join Chelsea.
