Real Madrid have received a huge boost ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Real Madrid duo Marcelo and Federico Valverde are now available to face Chelsea after doubts about their availability previously.

Marcelo was required to remain in Madrid on May 4 to assist with local elections in Madrid but has now been allowed to travel to London for Wednesday’s Champions League game against Chelsea.

Marcelo – who was granted Spanish citizenship in 2011 – had been selected to monitor the elections at the Madrid assembly on May 4.
