Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel will have to wait and see if Antonio Rudiger and Mateo Kovacic are fit to face Real Madrid on Wednesday.

The Spanish giants travel to London for the second leg tie of the Champions League semi-final with the scores leveled at 1-1.

Rudiger was an absentee for Saturday’s win over Fulham due to a facial injury and will have to wear a mask if he does face Real, while Kovacic has missed Chelsea’s last six games through injury.

“For Toni, I think he will play with a mask,” reported Tuchel. “He trained on Saturday with a mask so it’s just about him getting used to it.

“It will be a very tight race for Kovacic. He had a little setback and felt something in not the same area but the same muscle as before. It’s very likely that he will not make it unfortunately.

“We have two training sessions now to prepare for Real Madrid so it will be exciting. I’m very happy with this group in the semi-final.

“We feel ready for a big fight and I’m pretty sure that we need a big performance because Real Madrid will give us a hard time.”
