Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel provided an update on the injuries of Antonio Rudiger and Matteo Kovavic before the second leg of the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid. Last week, the Blues drew 1-1 at Alfredo di Stefano Stadium, and they had a crucial away goal advantage before returning from Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Before the start of the game, Tuchel confirmed that Rudiger is likely to return to action because he missed the 2-0 Premier League champions Fulham due to a facial injury in the last match in Madrid. The German coach revealed that his compatriots can fight against Los Blancos and become the starting lineup, but he must wear a mask, which is what he has become accustomed to in training.

he told Chelseafc.com: ``For Toni, I think he will play with a mask. He wears a mask to train on Saturday, so it's just that he is used to it. At the same time, Tuchel doubts whether Kovacic will be able to reunite with Madrid after missing the first seven games due to a hamstring injury in all competitions.

he added: ``For Kovacic, this will be a very intense game. He was a little frustrated, feeling different from before, but with the same muscles. Unfortunately, he probably won't do this. Los Blancos suffered an untimely blow, Raphael Varane will be excluded from the European game on Wednesday night, but captain Sergio Ramos should be able to face Chelsea in Stamford Bridge.

When asked how to deal with Ramos, Tuchel suggested that he might reject the prospect of playing with forwards to prevent the Spanish international out of the game. If we don't have a striker to play at all, and Ramos has nothing to fight, that can be solved,'' he said. ``I haven't made up my mind yet.

Tuchel chopped off and changed his attack method. He may take a similar approach in the middle of the week, and Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic may return to the starting lineup. Havertz is good at leading opponents with half the goal rate in the derby on Saturday evening , and the German may play an important role in the false number 9 against Los Blancos.

Wednesday's goalless draw was enough to get them to the first final of the European Classic since 2012.
