Actual Madrid handed big increase forward of Champions League semi-final vs Chelsea
Real Madrid received an enormous selection boost ahead of the decisive second leg of the Champions League in the semifinals against Chelsea on Wednesday.
After a tense encounter in last week’s first leg, Real Madrid will travel to Stamford Bridge this week to try to beat a 1-1 away goal deficit.
In last week’s first leg, Los Blancos were lucky enough to take something to take with them to the second leg.
Chelsea are clearly the better side over the course of 90 minutes and will still bring themselves to their knees that Christian Pulisic’s first-half opener failed to improve.
In what is arguably the biggest game of the season so far, however, Zinedine Zidane received a timely boost.
Brujula del Deporte says Real Madrid will welcome captain and veteran defender Sergio Ramos back to the starting line-up.
