Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has revealed his plan to frustrate Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, when both teams clash in the Champions League semi-final second-leg fixture on Wednesday night.
Tuchel said he would not give Ramos anyone to “fight” with during the second-leg tie at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea had played a 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in the first-leg last Tuesday in Spain.
“If we play with no striker at all and [Sergio] Ramos has nothing to fight then that can also be a solution. I have not made my mind up yet,” Tuchel told Chelsea’s official website.
“It’s another challenge because he is the leader of their group and he is the guy to give a lot of solutions to any questions that we will hopefully ask them.
“We will wait and see who is in good shape and good form, what shape we play and where we try to hurt them.
“I’m not too sure if they will play again with five or go back to four [in defence] so, there are many questions but we don’t need the answers now. It’s enough if we have them on Wednesday.”
The kick-off time for the game is 8 pm, Nigerian time.
