Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is hopeful of welcoming back two key players from injury ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final clash between Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Zidane is hoping to have Ferland Mendy and midfielder Toni Kroos for Tuesday’s game against Chelsea.

“The intention is that Mendy and Kroos return (for Chelsea), but we have to see,” Zidane told reporters. “We have to recover as Tuesday is going to be the most difficult of the season.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea warmed up for Tuesday’s game against Real Madrid with a 1-0 win over West Ham United to boost our chances of a top-four finish.

Timo Werner scored the only goal of the game at the London Stadium to ensure the Blues end the weekend three points clear of fifth-placed West Ham.
