Chelsea vs Real Madrid: Rudiger ready to play with pain

The attention is shifted to the UEFA Champions League Semi-final second leg clash between Chelsea and Real Madrid.

There have been reports of injuries concern for both Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Now, the Blues, defender Antonio Rudiger, is ready to play through the pain against Real Madrid.

The German centre-back suffered a facial injury near the end of his side’s 1-1 draw in the first leg against Real in Madrid.

The Blues can go through to the final if they draw 0-0 at home, or win the game.

Rudiger did not play against Fulham in a 2-0 win on Saturday, but did train with a protective mask on his face, per The Sun.

He could play with the mask against Real, if called on by manager Thomas Tuchel.
