The Blues are one step away from reaching the final in Istanbul but must defeat the 13-time winners and most successful side in the competition
Thomas Tuchel has told his young Chelsea squad to embrace the experience of facing Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final this week.
Chelsea have not reached the last four of Europe’s elite competition since 2014. They also have a squad that’s stocked with new signings and academy players that have yet to reach this stage.
Meanwhile, Madrid have won the Champions League three times under manager Zinedine Zidane, with many of those European champions in their squad. Tuchel believes his side can compete but wants them to learn over two legs versus Los Blancos.
