Despite being tagged as favourites heading into the Champions League semi-final clash against Chelsea on Tuesday night, Spanish side Real Madrid will be worried.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is the only coach whom Zidane has faced at least three times and not beaten, with the German tactician going unbeaten in their four games against one another.

In four games against Zidane’s Real Madrid, Tuchel has has won one and drawn three.

In the group stage of the Champions League in the 2016/17 season, Tuchel’s Borussia Dortmund drew twice with Real Madrid and also took top spot in the group with two more points than Real Madrid.

The rivalry rekindled in 2019/20, again in the Champions League’s group stage, though this time Tuchel was in charge at Paris Saint-Germain.

The Ligue 1 side managed to beat Real Madrid quite comfortably at the Parc des Princes, before the two coaches played out yet another draw at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid might be favourites heading into the game but Zidane will definitely be worried about facing the German tactician.
