Zinedine Zidane also hopes to achieve his fourth semi-final in the Champions League as Real Madrid coach. The 48-year-old Frenchman will face Chelsea with his team on Tuesday. Under Zidane’s leadership, Real failed only once in the Champions League knockout stage, last season in the eighth final against Manchester City.
There is a month left for the season as we compete for the Spanish title and the Champions League. “We will not choose, we want to win both titles,” Zidane said a day before the match at home against Chelsea. We’ve had some setbacks this season, but every team has to deal with that. We fight to the end.”
In 2016, 2017 and 2018, Zidane’s team won the Champions League. As a player, he won the most important European Championship with Real Madrid in 2002.
We’re focused on Chelsea, the chairman is busy with that other thing
Eden Hazard, the former Chelsea player, has returned to his numbers this season after being injured on Saturday as a substitute against Real Betis (0-0). “Eden is playing against his old club and of course he has an extra motivation to show himself,” said his colleague Raphael Varane. ,, We know how many attributes of Eden. He also wants to show that on the field. It’s great to have any player in the Champions League semi-finals, but meeting your old club is an extra thing.”
Zidane could also bring in German playmaker Toni Kroos against Chelsea, who has returned from a minor injury. The match comes too early for French left-back Ferland Mendy. Sergio Ramos and Lucas Vazquez were injured for some time.
Real Madrid and Chelsea are involved in the controversial Premier League draft, although Chelsea quickly pulled out of it last week along with five other English clubs. Zidane again refused to say anything about the Premier League. “It’s not that I’m not interested in that, but it’s not the time to talk about it. We play on Tuesday, that’s what we’re focused on. The boss is busy with that other thing.”
