EXPOSED VIDEO: Real Madrid’s weak point has been exposed and here is how Chelsea will use it against them.
We were thinking they might be all powerful and great but Real Madrid have opened up a weak point in their play and here is what Chelsea needs to do to take advantage of it.
Eduardo Camavinga is likely to fill in for Mendy, and while the youngster is a phenomenal talent, he’s not a natural in the position, and Frank Lampard will now be thinking off the best ways to exploit that.
The alternative is using David Alaba there, a more cautious move but one that Carlo Ancelotti would certainly consider given the magnitude of the game.

Reece James will be a natural threat down that side, and perhaps rather than worrying about picking the most dangerous right wing player to join him, the focus should be on creating enough protection for James that he is liberated to push forward and threaten on that side.
That could well mean an extra midfielder in the mix, with instructions to fill in for James when he’s bombing forward.
