Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea
A squad of 23-man Chelsea players have departed for Bucharest, Romania venue of the Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea Champions League meeting.
The Blues travelling contingent will touch down around 9pm local time and then head straight to the team hotel, having trained at Cobham for the final time before the game earlier today. Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz are among those travelling but Thiago Silva is not.
Thiago Silva is fine now, but he remains on the sideline due to match fitness.
Recall Spanish government restrictions have resulted in the first leg of this round of 16 fixture taking place in Bucharest and not Madrid. It will be our third visit to the National Arena in the Romanian capital, having played Steaua Bucharest twice there in 2013.
However, the Los Rojiblancos in their first ‘home’ leg in Bucharest will be without three first team players Jose Gimenez, Yannick Carrasco and Sime Vrsaljko.
The Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea kick-off is at 8 pm UK time (9 pm WAT) tomorrow.
