As regards the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, Chelsea will be clashing against Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge next month, as the two teams will face each other with a high level of winning spirit. Apparently, the La Liga side are winless against Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel, which means they will have to improve their games to win at Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile, it’s been reported that Eden Hazard will be unavailable for the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals match against his former club, because he will undergo ankle surgery in the coming days and will be out for at least one month. Of course, Carlo Ancelloti doesn’t really value the Belgian wizard, but they may really miss his creativity against Chelsea in both legs.
Without being sentimental, Hazard is expected to leave Real Madrid in the upcoming summer transfer window, because he will need to play back-to-back games, in order to be fit enough to play in the FIFA World Cup in November. Reportedly, he has been linked with a move back to Chelsea, so he may actually join the West London club in the summer, because it doesn’t look like the La Liga side have any plans for him.
In the absence of Eden against Chelsea, the Italian gaffer is expected to play the likes likes of Rodrygo, Gareth Bale, or Marco Asensio as a right-winger, while Vinícius anchors the left-wing position and Karim Benzema plays as a striker. Obviously, Real Madrid and Carlo Ancelloti have enough reinforcements to face the Thomas Tuchel’s men, without the Belgian mastero.
Simply put, Eden Hazard will miss the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals against Chelsea in April, as he will undergo ankle surgery in the coming days, which will sideline him for about one month. As a result, he won’t be able to face his former club in the UCL competition.
