I trust the likes of Thiago Silva, Azpi, and our defense as a whole tomorrow but just fail to see how we’re going to get a real foothold in midfield without Kova in there. He’s the most important of our CM’s. Without him there Modric, Casemiro and Kroos might be able to just completely lock us down and dominate the ball. What those 3 struggle against is legs and driving runs which Kova specializes in. We could potentially move Mason further back but then our attack suffers.

As individuals, Benzema and Vinicius are very good but they don’t terrify you like say Mbappe & Neymar. I think our defense can deal with them. If we were totally injury free and fresh I’d seriously fancy us.

No Ramos or Mendy is huge. 

Kovacic out is the bigger blow.

Kante, Jorginho, and Mount out possessed City in the first half. We can trust them to do a job against Kroos, Modric, and Moonface.

Possession is nothing if we can’t connect the midfield and attack. Look at recent matches without Kova for proof. Neither of J5 or Kante are going to play passes through the lines. And moving Mount back into a 3 weakens our press.

We scored 3 goals against City. So not understanding your point when that midfield has showed they are capable of competing in big games. 

I made the point several times that Mount needs to play if Kovacic is out. This doesn't mean Mount plays in a midfield three, its just that Mount is on par with Kovacic as being the best players in transition.

I think we will go through if we show up and play well like v Atletico, Liverpool and City also with Tuchel.

Just have a feeling.

No doubt Madrid are a good team, undoubtedly, but their not as good as some make out. Their experience counts for a lot though. I think if Casemiro, Kroos and Modric play we have to be playing at a high tempo, being relentless off the ball and pressure them. They are top players but Kroos and Modric are also 30+ and both have missed games due to injury so we need to crank it up and get about them.

Standing off Kroos like Liverpool did will cost us, two goals directly came from Liverpool not getting close to him.

Should be an intriguing game. Hopefully get a big Kante performance as well, if he plays well and we defend well, I think we will have a huge chance. 

Obviously we need to score goals but I think Mount, Pulisic, Werner/Havertz have the ability to test their back 4 also. No Mendy at LB for them so talk of Nacho playing there plus no Ramos so they are there to be gotten at. Militao is a good player but the drop off between Ramos and Varane to him is big.

I'm actually quite relaxed about this game, more to than I was for the game against West Ham.

In previous years, when we got this far it was nothing more than what was expected from us. Losing a CL SF back then really, really hurt. 

Of course, I'll be disappointed if we go out, but not like previous years, because really, if we're being honest, this current team isn't top four in Europe level. Its a big bonus for us  jusr being in it at this stage and anything more would be an amazing, extra bonus. So yeah, for a nice change, i can just sit back and enjoy this one

Which means we must take every opportunity or risk to push for away goals..

We should start Giroud at the opposite end just to piss Benzema off.

Have a feeling that he's going to start regardless

Come on Thomas TuCHELSEA we can beat them  .

it will be difficult against Modric-Casemiro-Kroos but i feel we can  beat this trio 

without Ramos and Mendy they  will have big problems with  Pulisic , Werner , Mount , Ziyech , Haverz  vs Nacho , Militao and Odriozola

Courtois in 2018 after leaving Chelsea .

0 respect to Chelsea then so now zero respect and good words to him . 🙃

it is clear to me that he will make the match of the season tomorrow again like   2014 with Atletico  against us

Don't underestimate Kante and Jorginho. Kante is the legs that we will need and Jorginho will need to put in a 10/10 performance to control the midfield. I would like to see Ziyech start too because he can drop deeper and act as the playmaker. He has the CL experience and tore Madrid a new one before.

I think the defence and midfield picks itself. The front 3 is the decision to be made for TT. Mount has to be there for his energy, a striker has to be there - guessing its Werner for his speed behind the lines, and the third one is between Pulisic, Ziyech, Havertz. Leaning towards Ziyech at the moment.

After Benzema who scored 27 goals this season, their best goalscorer scored just 6 goals in 45 games. 

Just stop Karim and major job is done. Full trust in Silva here.

I actually think TT has quite the selection dilemma in defense. All of our CB’s have been playing so well it all comes down to his tactical game plan. Does he think we’ll have the lions share of possession? Then AC may make sense with Azpi as a wing back like he was against WH. Could be why he trailed that system. Does he think we’ll be under siege and need an aerial threat on set pieces to try to pinch an away goal? Then Zouma may start.

Will be very interesting which way he goes. Likewise whether we go false 9 with Havertz, Werner up top, or he surprises everyone and starts Oli to catch them off guard.
