Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed Antonio Rudiger will play against Real Madrid on Wednesday night after missing the 2-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday due to injury.

Tuchel also revealed he has an almost complete squad to choose from except Mateo Kovacic, who is still struggling with a thigh problem.

“For the injuries I can just give you the status right now which is Mateo will not be in the squad, I think that Toni will play with a mask because he trained yesterday with a mask,” Tuchel told a pre-match press conference on Tuesday.

“Everybody else trained, is in training today so hopefully we won’t have any re-injuries, any new injuries from today’s training.

“That means that everybody is available except for Mateo Kovacic.”
