After a big win at Saint Mary's stadium, Chelsea will be in action on Tuesday against Real Madrid in the second leg quarter-final. The blues are trailing following the 3-1 home defeat. However, Tuchel's men are confident that they can launch a comeback to keep thier dreams alive.
But Real Madrid are on fine form, meaning Tuchel will have to tweak his squad accordingly to get some finer details. The squad that faced Southampton looks dangerous, and we expect the blues to lineup with 3-4-1-2 similar formation. Should that be the case, the starting eleven will be composed of;
Eduard Mendy should continue to start after impressive performance against Southampton.
Thiago Silva was substituted for a rest against Southampton, and this is a clear indication that he will start against Real Madrid. The Brazilian veteran will feature alongside Chalobah and Rudiger in the defensive line.
The last game against Real Madrid, chelsea suffered from this wide area and Tuchel should start Alonso to add some attacking flavor alongside Reece James.
Jorginho was completely rested in the last game. The Italian should be slotted in to bring in some energy. Mateo Kovacic is likely to pair him in the middle of the park.
Mason Mount has proven to be a key member in this area. The English sensation had a fascinating performance against Southampton, and he should start behind the two strikers.
Real Madrid are high in pressing, Tuchel will need to deploy two strikers in the front line to create some overload on their defense and open up chances. Werner's pace and Havertz's precision and clinical finish will be needed to convert chances created and kill the game.Lineup
