UEFA Champions League

Blow to Real Madrid as Striker and defender are ruled out of the Chelsea clash

Real Madrid will be heading into the second leg of the Champions league quarter finals after defeating Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge. The La Liga giants are however set to miss some of their key players due to various reasons.

The former Chelsea player, Eden Hazard, has been ruled out of the match since he is injured. Hazard sustained a fibula injury of which he has undergone surgery. The Belgian will be out for two months which sees him miss the game against his former club.

Eder Militao collected his third booking for this season's champions League and is therefore not expected to play due to suspension by UEFA. As the rule states, three yellow cards would see one miss one game in the Champions league. He is expected to return for the Sevilla clash on 17th on the la Liga match.

The Serbian, Luka Jovic, has had an ankle injury which has seen him miss several games. He was expected to return for Getafe's clash but was ruled out. A report released by The Sports Mole indicates that Jovic will not be available for selection in the Champions league clash.

Despite missing several players, Real Madrid's squad is to the brim with Benzema, Vinicious Junior and Luka Modric in great shape for the game. Benzema scored a hat trick in the first leg and is still a great threat to the Chelsea's defence. Gareth Bale also came on for Benzema in the game against Getafe and is expected to be fit for the clash.
