NewsReport Nigeria | May 5, 2021

Mateo Kovacic, a Chelsea midfielder, is desperate to persuade manager Thomas Tuchel that he will contribute in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid later today.

NewsReport Nigeria gathered that since suffering a setback in training last week, Kovacic has been in a battle against time to recover from a hamstring injury.

Before making a definitive decision about whether or not to include him in the match day squad, the club’s medical team is monitoring his growth.

Despite sustaining a facial injury in the first leg, Toni Rudiger is expected to play.

In preparation for the match at Stamford Bridge, the German centre back has been practicing with a protective mask on.
