Real Madrid will be without defender Jesus Vallejo for the Champions League clash against Chelsea after he tested positive for Covid-19 on Monday. 

The Spanish giants hold a healthy 3-1 lead over the London club ahead of Tuesday night’s decider at Santiago Bernabeu and will be favourites to progress.

A statement from the club on Monday confirmed a positive test for the 25-year-old.

“Real Madrid C. F. confirms that our player Jesús Vallejo has tested positive for COVID-19,”

Coach Carlo Ancelotti will also miss the services of Eder Militao through suspension after he was shown a fifth yellow card at Stamford Bridge.

Here is the 23-man team for the Blues’ clash.
