Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has admitted he expects Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos to start against Chelsea on Wednesday night.

Ramos has been out injured since suffering an injury while on international duty with Spain during the most recent international break.

He missed both legs of Real Madrid’s quarter-final victory over Liverpool and also missed the first-leg of the 1-1 draw last week.

Tuchel said: “Does Ramos play or not? This is a tough question because I simply don’t know it. We will see after the training today and when they give the line-up tomorrow.

“Does it change for Real Madrid? Yes, a lot. It’s the captain, it’s the captain of the most successful team in Europe in the last years, it changes a lot.

“We cannot lose our heads about this decision. I think he will start we will prepare for that and we have to make sure he cannot do it alone.”
