Zidane will have some of the depth back.

Real Madrid defenders Ferland Mendy and Sergio Ramos completed Monday’s training session with the rest of the squad and appear ready to face Chelsea in the return leg of the Champions League Semifinals this Wednesday.

Their recovery is great news for Madrid, given that Varane and Carvajal will miss the game. All things considered, Nacho, Militao, Ramos and Mendy will almost certainly be Real Madrid’s defensive line at Stamford Bridge, with Odriozola and Marcelo waiting for their opportunity if Ramos or Mendy aren’t ready enough to play and start.

Real Madrid face Chelsea needing to either win the game or draw while scoring two goals or more. The 1-1 draw at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano last week is not a good result for Los Blancos, but anything can happen in a single game and Zinedine Zidane’s men are still in contention for a spot in the Champions League Final.
