18/04/2023 Football – Champions League – Chelsea v Real Madrid

Following Ben Chilwell’s suspension due to a red card in Chelsea’s Champions League quarter-final match against Real Madrid, Frank Lampard might choose to go with a four-man defence in the upcoming game. With Kalidou Koulibaly already absent, it could be a tactical decision to ensure a strong defense against Real Madrid. Here’s what we know so far about the team’s status:

  • Kai Havertz and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are being assessed ahead of the game, and it’s uncertain if Havertz will be fit to play. If not, Joao Felix might lead the charge upfront, with Raheem Sterling and Mykhailo Mudryk playing alongside him.
  • Unfortunately, Armando Broja and Carney Chukwuemeka will not be available for selection in this match.
  • Vinicius Junior is a doubt due to injury, which kept him out of the team’s weekend win over Cadiz. His absence could be a significant blow to Real Madrid’s attack.
  • Ferland Mendy is also out of the game, but Carlo Ancelotti doesn’t have any further concerns about his team’s fitness.
  • It’s possible that Antonio Rudiger might replace David Alaba in the center-back position for the upcoming match.
  • Aurelien Tchouameni is another player who could feature from the outset, but that depends on Vinicius Junior’s fitness.

In summary, Chelsea will have to work hard to overcome Real Madrid in the second leg of the quarter-final without Ben Chilwell and potentially without Kai Havertz. Real Madrid’s attack could also suffer from Vinicius Junior’s absence, while Ferland Mendy’s injury won’t pose a significant problem for the team. It remains to be seen who Frank Lampard will choose for his starting lineup, but we can expect some changes to be made to adapt to the situation.


18/04/2023 Football – Champions League – Napoli v AC Milan

Napoli will be without the services of André-Frank Zambo Anguissa for their upcoming fixture, following his second-half red card in the previous game. This may open the door for Tanguy Ndombele to come into the side and partner Stanislav Lobotka and Piotr Zielinski in midfield. In other team news, Kim Min-Jae is suspended, which means that Juan Jesus and Leo Ostigard are the possible replacements for the South Korean center-back. On the other hand, Victor Osimhen has made his comeback to the squad and should be available for the upcoming game after missing several fixtures due to injury. His return will be a huge boost for Napoli as they look to advance to the next round.

AC Milan, on the other hand, have no additional injury concerns and only Zlatan Ibrahimovic is unavailable for the game. The veteran striker is ineligible for the fixture, meaning that he will not be involved in any capacity. With no further injury or suspension concerns, Stefano Pioli may opt to go with the same XI that secured a 1-0 win in the first leg.
