Champions League: Chelsea Vs Real Madrid; Which Players Did Carlo Ancelotti Travel With?

  • Carlo Ancelotti has named a strong side ahead of the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals fixture; Chelsea vs Real Madrid.
  • Antonio Rudiger would be making a much-anticipated return to Stamford Bridge for the first time alongside Courtois and Eden Hazard.
  • Chelsea would be looking to do the impossible and turn the tides in this fixture at the bridge.
  • Frank Lampard would also be looking to win his first game as the interim manager at Chelsea against his former manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Real Madrid has named one of the strongest sides since the start of the 2022/2023 season ahead of a must-win champions league quarterfinals second leg fixture; Chelsea vs Real Madrid, which would be played at Stamford Bridge today, Tuesday, April 18, 2023.

The former Chelsea coach, who led his side to secure a 2-0 victory over the Blues in the first leg of the game, would be looking to ensure that everything gets done in the second leg with no hiccups. In his press conference, he revealed:

“We're in good shape, motivated as ever. These are important games in a big competition. We're focused on the fact we'll have to deliver a complete display. There are 90 minutes still to play and anything can happen. We'll be ready to play as well as we possibly can.”
“It's hard to say I have to pick a starting eleven. One day I've got it and then the guys who don't play as often have a great game and they change your plans a bit. This squad has so many resources and to think only about the starting eleven is a lack of respect to the guys who play less but do a brilliant job. Camavinga may well play at left-back again."

Here is the Real Madrid travelling squad:

Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin and Luis López.
Defenders: Carvajal, Militão, Alaba, Vallejo, Nacho, Odriozola, Lucas V. and Rüdiger.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modrić, Camavinga, Valverde, Tchouameni and Ceballos.
Forwards: Hazard, Benzema, Asensio, Vini Jr., Rodrygo and Mariano.
