One of the more admirable facts about Real’s win was that they did it with a host of injuries, several key players were missing over the two legs as they somehow managed to stun Liverpool in the first leg and finished the job then and there.

Among the notable absentees were first-choice centre-backs, Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane. Both were down due to COVID and Ramos was also injured. Eden Hazard continued his recovery from his injury struggles. Lastly, there was Dani Carvajal who was also out.

However, in some good news for them, all four are set to return soon and could feature in the Chelsea game. It will be a huge boost for Real, who had to play with a makeshift backline in both legs.
