Thomas Tuchel has not made his mind up on what team to field against Real Madrid.
The Chelsea boss revealed that he leaves it very late to pick his side even when it comes to a tie as crucial as a Champions League semi-final.
“I will make my decisions very late like I usually do,” said Tuchel. “I have my ideas in my mind, but I’m too long in the business that I also know anything can happen in the last training session, or a situation can even change my mind.
Chelsea held off Real Madrid 1-1 draw in Madrid and now have a strong chance to get it over the line. Tuchel’s defensive line up has mostly got the job done since his arrival and this match is about to be the litmus test.
The former Dortmund and PSG boss added, “We need to wait. I need another sleep, and tomorrow I will decide on the line-up. I will give it to my team first, but what is sure is we played a good match with the line-up we had in the first game. It was a strong performance, and from that view there is no reason to do too many changes.”
