This evening, Chelsea has welcomed a fitness boost ahead of their key Champions League clash with a Real Madrid.
The Blues go to Santiago Bernabéu, two goals down.
Chelsea’s players face an uphill battle to reach the next round, though the absence of away goals helps them.
First and foremost, Chelsea will need to be careful at the back, with Real Madrid able to sit back and pick their moments as Chelsea attack in need of at least two goals. And it’s for that reason, that the presence of senior star César Azpilicueta will be significant.
The Spaniard was tested positive for coronavirus, but on testing negative, he has since trained with his teammates, as per Mundo Deportivo, and is in contention to play. That will be seen as a big boost for Chelsea ahead of this one.
