Christian Pulisic responds to Eden Hazard comparisons & Tuchel provides Chelsea team news update ahead of Real Madrid

Real Madrid vs Chelsea

Real Madrid and Chelsea are set to go head-to-head in the first of two Champions League semi-final clashes on Tuesday.

The winner of the tie will of course go on to face one of Manchester City or PSG in the competition’s showpiece next month.

The tie’s opener will take place at Real’s training ground, the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, before the return leg takes place at Stamford Bridge on May 5th.

This will, of course, come as Chelsea’s first Champions League semi-final since 2014, when they were ousted from the competition by Los Blancos’ city rivals, Atletico Madrid.

Pulisic responds to Hazard comparisons

Ahead of Tuesday’s clash, meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel and Christian Pulisic spoke to the media on Monday.

The latter was drawn on comparisons between himself and Real Madrid man Eden Hazard when addressing the press.

Pulisic, though, insisted that whilst it is an honour to be compared to the Belgian, he is not attempting to ‘be like him’:

“He was an incredible player at this football club of course. I definitely looked up to him. I am not comparing myself to him in any way or trying to be like him.

“I am my own player, doing my best for this club. Obviously, he was a massive player for this club and obviously it is an honour to hear comparisons like that, but I still have a way to go.”

Tuchel, on the other hand, provided an update on Chelsea’s injury situation ahead of Madrid, confirming that Mateo Kovacic is the only player set to miss out:

“Only Mateo Kovacic is missing. Everyone else is available.”
