Chelsea v Real Madrid - UEFA Champions League Semi Final: Leg Two Photo by Steve Bardens - UEFA/UEFA via Getty Images

And so, here we are, on the cusp of a third Champions League final in club history. Win and we’re in. Clean sheet and we’re in. 90 minutes to glory, or perhaps 120 (if another 1-1 draw). Anything else, and we’re out.

The task is simple. The task is far from easy. No surprises from Tuchel, except maybe with Pulisic not starting. Hazard starts for Real meanwhile.

Here we go.


Chelsea starting lineup (3-4-3):
Mendy | Rüdiger, Silva, Christensen | Chilwell, Jorginho, Kanté, Azpilicueta (c) | Werner, Havertz, Mount

Substitutes from: Arrizabalaga, Caballero, Zouma, James, Alonso, Emerson, Gilmour, Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi, Ziyech, Abraham, Giroud

Real Madrid starting lineup (4-3-3):
Courtois | Mendy, Ramos (c), Éder Militão, Nacho | Modrić, Casemiro, Kroos | Hazard, Benzema, Vinícius Júnior

Substitutes from: Lunin, Altube, Asensio, Marcelo, Valverde, Odriozola, Isco, Mariano Díaz, Rodrygo, Arribas, Blance, Gutiérrez
