Real Madrid will play hosts to Chelsea in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final.

Real Madrid XI: Courtois, Marcelo, Nacho, Militao, Varane, Carvajal, Casemiro, Modric, Kroos, Vinicius, Benzema

Subs: Lunin, Altube, Hazard, Asensio, Odriozola, Isco, Mariano, Rodrygo, Arribas, Blanco, Miguel

Subs: Kepa, Caballero, Alonso, Palmieri, James, Zouma, Gilmour, Havertz, Hudson-Odoi, Ziyech, Abraham, Giroud
