Chelsea will face Real Madrid over the two legs in the Champions League semi-finals over the next one week to determine who goes through to the final next month. The first leg is in Madrid on Tuesday night before the return leg is played at Stamford Bridge next week Wednesday.

The Blues have come a long way in this season’s competition and that could be attributed to German tactician Thomas Tuchel though one would never know if the club would be in the same situation had Frank Lampard stayed on as manager. Club legend Lampard was sacked and Tuchel was appointed in his place.
