Stamford Bridge hosts an almighty capital city match tonight for a place in Europe’s big showpiece final. Chelsea will be playing Real Madrid later tonight in the second leg of their UEFA Champions Semi Final tie for a place in the final of the coveted competition.
The first match ended in a 1-1 draw courtesy of goals from Pulisic and Benzema for the London giants and the Los Blancos respectively.
As part of preparations for the game, Chelsea players were seen participating in their final training session. Some of the players spotted include: Ngolo Kante, Thiago Silva, Ben Chillwell, Cristian Pulisic and a few others.
The only absentee in the training session is Croatian playmaker, Mateo Kovacic. ‘I can give you the status right now which is that Mateo will not be in the squad,’ Tuchel confirmed earlier yesterday.
