Injury news and changes

Chelsea v Real Madrid :  Several key players, including Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Eder Militao, and Eduardo Camavinga, who played the entire 90 minutes in both legs against Liverpool, were rested by Ancelotti in the defeat to Villarreal. However, they are expected to return to the starting lineup. Federico Valverde is also likely to be included.

Although Mason Mount is eligible to play after serving a Champions League suspension, he is a doubt for the Bernabeu battle due to an abdominal issue. Armando Broja and Cesar Azpilicueta are still recovering from their injuries, but Thiago Silva has made the journey. Benoit Badiashile, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Noni Madueke, and David Datro Fofana are not part of the Blues' Champions League squad.

N'Golo Kante's and Ben Chilwell are also expected to feature.

Napoli vs AC Milan: Simon Kjaer and Rade Krunic are likely to join Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud in returning from the start, while Brahim Diaz is also set to make a comeback after his outstanding performance against Napoli earlier this month.

However, Pierre Kalulu will miss out due to a calf problem. As a result, the experienced Kjaer will compete with young Malick Thiaw for the opportunity to partner Fikayo Tomori in the heart of the hosts' back four.

Victor Osimhen is also out

What have the managers said about the UEFA Champions League? 

Chelsea Frank Lampard; "We have to have the belief that we can perform under that pressure. We're very committed to trying to, if we can, create our own little bit of history.

"We have to have belief, we have to follow the idea, because in a high-level game, the biggest thing can sometimes be the mentality — following through with what the idea is, under pressure."

Real Madrid Carlo Ancelotti: "I don't think my experience will change what will happen tomorrow,"

"Lampard has been a great player who I coached for two years.

"He knows this type of game well and how to prepare his team. It has taken him a week [to adjust] but he's going to do well as long as he's at Chelsea."

Benfica: Stefano Pioli: "We have prepared ourselves in the best possible way and we know the importance of this match, we know what’s behind Milan’s history in the Champions League.

“We have to be confident, determined and certainly careful, but we have to play with lightness, because it’s our way of playing, our way of training, our way of being together and so we have to carry it on.”
