Former Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin is backing his former club to see off Chelsea and reach the Champions League final.

According to Sahin, who played under Thomas Tuchel at Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid are the boss of the Champions League.

Sahin believes Zinedine Zidane’s men have the quality and experience to overcome an in-form Chelsea side.

Sahin told Goal: “I think it will be an open game, as it was in the first leg. I’m really looking forward to it.

“Both sides are in a good moment, I would say. Chelsea are playing really well under Thomas Tuchel, and tactically they play really different.

“They play maybe the best football tactically right now. You can see that they have a plan, with three at the back. I know the coach and he’s very good tactically.

“But on the other side, you have the boss of the Champions League in Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane! They are still in a good moment, even if people maybe don’t think they are as strong. I have my fingers crossed for them, and I think they can do it

“But it will be a good game regardless.”
