Real Madrid has announced their starting lineup for Tuesday’s Champions League quarterfinal second-leg match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Vinicius and Kroos have returned to the squad after missing Saturday’s away match in Cadiz, and they should be included in the starting lineup. Their inclusion in the starting lineup should prove pivotal against a Chelsea side that will play with great intensity in the opening minutes in an effort to erase their 2-0 deficit. If Real Madrid is given the ability to play through counterattacks, Vinicius will be a dangerous player to face.
