The Real Madrid will be measured at Chelsea next Wednesday in the most important game of the season for Zinedine Zidane’s men. The whites They will travel to London to play the second leg of the semifinals of the Champions with 1-1 harvested at home, which, in principle, is not a favorable result but far from a bad one.

In this way, there is a kind of traffic light that shines a different light depending on which players.
