'Don't care': Some Chelsea fans unafraid that three Madrid stars may return for CL tie

Chelsea supporters showed no fear after finding out that Real Madrid might have several key first-team players back for their Champions League clash.

Spanish journalist Jose Luis Sanchez stated that Eden Hazard, Raphael Varane and Dani Carvajal would all return from injury for the first leg later this month.

Blues fans weren’t fazed by this update and voiced their newfound confidence on Twitter.



Although followers of Chelsea might not be afraid of the latest update, Madrid will be boosted by the recovery of their three stars.

Hazard has spent more time on the treatment table than playing for Los Blancos, so a reunion with his former club would mean a lot to him.

Varane unfortunately contracted coronavirus shortly before Madrid’s European ties against Liverpool, also forcing him to miss the El Classico clash.

Carvajal hasn’t featured at all since suffering a hamstring problem in February.

Zinedine Zidane’s side haven’t done too badly during this period of the trio’s omission.

They are now 14 games unbeaten, including the two Liverpool fixtures and the win over Barcelona.

Chelsea’s only current major absentee is Mateo Kovacic, who picked up a problem prior to the Porto match on Tuesday.
