Ahead of Chelsea, yesterday’s training session took place at Stamford Bridge stadium.
Valverde and Marcelo traveled with the team.
As you can see in the last photo above, Valverde’s latest PCR test was negative. Real Madrid delayed their flight to London by 20 minutes, so he traveled with the team and it’s available for the game.
Marcelo also traveled with the team. He was a substitute for the polling station, but apprarentely he has been excused.
