Chelsea coach, Thomas Tuchel was delighted for his players to spend the night at their homes ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League semifinal clash against Real Madrid.

The German tactician feels it will be better for the players to enjoy the night with their families before assembling at the team hotel.

“In this moment we had a feeling afternoon training was good because it’s a late match tomorrow, and then let the players sleep at home and not go to the hotel,” revealed Tuchel.

“We will meet for lunch tomorrow. That gives us another seven-and-a-half hours together in the hotel. This gives me enough time for me to do meetings, and to have several hours of rest again, say if somebody had a bad night’s sleep.

“In a season of almost 60 matches, and sleeping so much away from home and being so much in hotels, we try to reduce the time in hotels,” added Tuchel.

“Anything can have an influence though. Now we had three days in between games, so we had a lot of time to do recovery and take our time at Cobham to use the physios and masseurs.

“If you only have two days in between games we prefer sometimes to go to a hotel so players can take their time in the evening to get massages and treatment.

“When there are evening games, I had the feeling it will only increase the tension if we go to the hotel today. So let them go home, be a bit distracted, and we meet tomorrow for a walk, lunch and a meeting, and we will still have seven hours to prepare.”
