Atlético de Madrid Look at the game next Wednesday, the round of 16 of the Champions League, before him Chelsea. The rojiblanco team will have to overcome the 0-1 that the English team won in the first leg.
He will do it before a Chelsea that since the arrival of Tuchel he has been unbeatable, he has not lost yet. However, the German coach has some important casualties for the appointment as well as several footballers who are in doubt.
Two are the casualties already confirmed for the meeting. And it is about two capital footballers in the German scheme. The Chelsea will not be able to count on Jorginho on Wednesday night as the experienced Brazilian midfielder is suspended due to the warning he received in the first leg against Atlético.
Same reason as one of the most talented youngsters in English football. Mason Mount he was also booked in the first leg of the round of 16 against the team of Diego
Simeone and will be suspended for the second leg in Stamford
Bridge. In the case of the Brazilian, his substitute could be Kanté, international with France and world champion.
What’s more, Tuchel has two players who are doubtful. On the one hand, Tammy
Abraham has recently been dealing with an ankle problem and was again absent against Leeds last Saturday. The forward has not yet been officially ruled out of this meeting on Wednesday, but the way he paints the matter makes his participation a great doubt.
The other question comes from the side of Thiago silva. The central defender had set his way back from a thigh problem to be on the bench in the match against him. Everton, but suffered a physical setback last week and was not in the call against the Leeds from this past weekend, which makes it a doubt. And important.
