Real Madrid ace Eden Hazard is out to destroy his former club Chelsea’s Champions League dream at Stamford Bridge tonight at 9pm.
Hazard, 30, was once worshipped in west London, where he lifted six major titles and was named the Premier League Player of the Year in 2014/15, before moving to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2019.
And his former Blues teammate Romelu Lukaku, now of Inter Milan, says Hazard is on a mission in tonight’s Stamford Bridge second leg return.
With Real hunting goals after a 1-1 stalemate at home, Lukaku warns Chelsea: “I know what Eden wants to do. I hope that he will win the Champions League.
“Eden Hazard is a 100 percent formidable player, he is a player different from the rest.”
Chelsea are aware of the threat Hazard poses, with defender Andreas Christensen saying: “He is a player that always brings happiness to the pitch.
“Everyone at this club only has good things to say about him. That opinion hasn’t changed, we all know his qualities and what he has done for the club.”
The Blues enter the game with an away-goal advantage, meaning a goalless draw will see them advance to the final.
But coach Tuchel knows that with the likes of Hazard, Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior in their squad, they can’t sit back and defend that advantage.
He explains: “The challenge is to forget the result.
“I don’t know any other way to prepare for the match, to go out, to be our best.
“If we are at our best. It is a no-brainer to go for a win. This club is about winning.”
