UEFA Champions League

Advantage for Chelsea as Key Madrid Player May Miss UCL Semi-Final Return Leg at Stamford Bridge

Real Madrid's UEFA Champions League Semi-Final Second Leg against Chelsea will be a tough one. This is because the Spanish club will be looking forward to scoring two goals in the match without having to concede. This is very difficult because they are travelling next week to Stamford Bridge in London and the Thomas Tuchel side are averagely brilliant in their homes games so far this season. 

However, there is a perceived bad news for Real Madrid fans as one of their key players, Marcelo will be missing out of the return leg which is set to be played on Wednesday next week.The forward player has been selected to participate in the upcoming Madrid elections which is arranged to be conducted next week Tuesday. Though, Marcelo may be free on Wednesday,he won't be able to join the team since they are travelling away to England and also because of Covid-19 safety protocols already in place. 

This might be an advantage for Chelsea who may fortunately be witnessing the arrival of their midfield maestro, Mateo Kovacic in the Semi-Final reverse fixture next week.
