UEFA Champions League

Chelsea in Trouble After Real Madrid Star Does Full Training After Injury Lay Off

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos was seen in training last weekend and therefore will be available for a Champions League semifinal clash against Chelsea on Tuesday, April 27th. The German missed Los Blancos' last two games in the Spanish La Liga.

According to a photo uploaded by the club's Twitter account, Toni was seen to be in training ground and Spanish publication Marca confirmed that he had full training with his teammates.

Kroos has been formidable for the side and his absence in the last match against Real Betis was felt as the club had a goalless draw. Lack of creativity from the midfield failed to provide adequate goal-scoring chances, Kroos main speciality, in the game that they required to get maximum points to put their hopes of winning the La Liga title.

Zinedine Zidane has used a midfield trio of Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro, with the first two playing as attacking mids in the pack. Isco was used in the place of former Bayern Munich ace.

This will give Thomas Tuchel a fresh headache on how to keep the thirteen times Champions League winners at bay but the tactician may as well not change this tactical master plan on just one individual when the two sides will be meeting.
