The good news goes on for Chelsea ahead of their second leg clash with Real Madrid in the Champions League next week.
Los Blancos are plagued by injuries, and they’re not easing up for the second leg.
Dani Carvajal was rushed back for the first leg on Tuesday, and that’s now cost Zinedine Zidane’s team. The Spain international aggravated his issue and will now miss the rest of the season.

Ferland Mendy may return to play left back, but he’s not at 100% either, and Fede Valverde is still a doubt. Sergio Ramos is sure to miss out, and Raphael Varane is playing on one leg too.
All in all, that back line looks set to be heavily weakened.
Things couldn’t be set up better for us to get the better of Zidane’s team back at Stamford Bridge – but we’re well aware of the quality that’s left in their team. The one thing it won’t be, is easy.
