Champions League: Ramos returns for Madrid v Chelsea

Spanish giants Real Madrid have received a massive boost ahead of their Champions League semi-final second leg against Chelsea with the return of captain Sergio Ramos and Ferland Mendy from injury.

Ramos has only played three matches in over the last four months in an injury-ravaged campaign.

French left-back Ferland Mendy is also set to return to the Madrid squad as he also resumed full training in another huge boost for manager Zinedine Zidane.

However, it isn’t all good news for Madrid as Raphael Varane has been ruled out after suffering a knock against Osasuna on Saturday.

Midfielder Federico Valverde is also a doubt as it stands, as he waits to return a second negative covid-19 test before he can rejoin the Los Blancos squad.

Madrid have work to do in the tie if they are to reach another Champions League final after their 1-1 draw in the first leg at home.

Christian Pulisic opened the scoring for the Blues with a composed finish as he rounded goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Karim Benzema equalised with a thunderous volley to even the scoreline but Chelsea have the slight advantage thanks to the away goal.

Los Blancos have never won a competitive tie against the Blues, and there’s no better time to break the jinx than on Wednesday.
