Why is Antonio Rudiger wearing a mask?

Rudiger, 28, suffered a facial injury in Chelsea’s 1-1 first leg draw with Real Madrid last week.

Boss Thomas Tuchel said: “For Toni, he can play with a mask, so it’s just about getting used to it.

“For Kovacic he felt something. It’s very likely he will not make it.

“But I’m very happy to arrive with this group in the semi-final. We feel ready for a big fight.”
