The Blues veteran defender and arguably Chelsea’s player of the season, Thiago Silva returned to training ahead of the first-leg clash against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. The Brazilian suffered an injury in the Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.
Both teams are meeting in the knock-out stage for the third consecutive season. Chelsea beat Los Blancos in their run to Champions league glory in the 2020/21 season. The Galacticos won the tie last season.
Will Lampard start a Thiago Silva that isn’t fully fit?
