Chelsea are about to take part in their biggest game of the season so far tomorrow night against Real Madrid in the Champions League semi final second leg.

The Blues have the advantage of the away goal going into the tie 1-1 from the first leg, but this is expected to be a totally different ball game at Stamford Bridge tomorrow night.

Thomas Tuchel has been speaking to the press ahead of the big game tomorrow night, and as expected he was asked about his team news and any injuries for tomorrow.

The German boss confirmed that unfortunately midfielder Mateo Kovacic will still be out injured and is not in contention to play, but centre back Antonio Rudiger is expected to start with a defence mask on his face after a recent injury.

But apart from that it looks like Tuchel has a full squad to pick from in what is a massive game for both sides.
